Which textual evidence develops the viewpoint that a wedding is an important ceremony in a young woman’s life?

a.) the repetition of “the leaves” of the henna-tree expresses the fertility of the bride as she prepares for the next stage in her life.

b.) the instruction to “grind” the henna-leaves in “mortars of amber and gold” illustrate the scale of the wedding and how costly it will be for the bride and her family.

c.) the vivid descriptions of the bride’s appearance in the lines, “the tilka's red for the brow of a bride, / and betel-nut's red for lips that are sweet; ” emphasize the focus on the bride’s beauty.

d.) the speaker’s insistence that the maidens “hasten away” and abandon their “pitchers” to gather the leaves of the henna-tree creates urgency and emphasizes the significance of the wedding.


substitute y = 2x - 4 to x + 2y = 12:

x + 2(2x - 4) = 12     use distributive property

x + (2)(2x) + () = 12

x + 4x - 8 = 12     add 8 to both sides

5x = 20     divide both sides by 5

x = 4

put the value of x to the first equation:

y = 2(4) - 4

y = 8 - 4

y = 4

answer: x = 4 and y = 4
