For my goals that are on my Google website, I completed most of my goals, on my writing, I plan much better than before, but I still haven't completed the entire writing goal. The goal was to have at least 4 pieces of writing or plans before I started, but I only had 2. That is a goal I need to continue on.

The difference between a common noun and a proper noun is that a common noun is the general

1. Tell why you think it is important to be able to divide numbers. For what kind of problems do you need to use division?
