Plzzz help. 20 points!!!!!a similarity between the Land Ordinance of 1785 and the Northwest Ordinance of 1787 was that they
O extended slavery.
O freed enslaved people.
O united the thirteen states.
O encouraged settlement.​





The Land Ordinance of 1785 was adopted by the United States Congress of the Confederation on May 20, 1785. It set up a standardized system whereby settlers could purchase title to farmland in the undeveloped west. Congress at the time did not have the power to raise revenue by direct taxation, so land sales provided an important revenue stream. The Ordinance set up a survey system that eventually covered over 3/4 of the area of the continental United States.

The earlier Ordinance of 1784 was a resolution written by Thomas Jefferson calling for Congress to take action. The land west of the Appalachian Mountains, north of the Ohio River, and east of the Mississippi River was to be divided into ten separate states. However, the 1784 resolution did not define the mechanism by which the land would become states, or how the territories would be governed or settled before they became states. The Ordinance of 1785 put the 1784 resolution in operation by providing a mechanism for selling and settling the land, while the Northwest Ordinance of 1787 addressed political needs.

The theory of kin selection predicts that even distantly related individuals will help each other, or be altruistic, no matter the cost.a. True
b. False



The correct answer is:

b. False


The theory of kin selection was proposed in 1960s by the British evolutionary biologist William D. Hamilton. The author developed a formula in which according to the degree of relatedness the donor will suffer the consequences or he will sacrifice himself in order to help the relative. He explains also about the way in which altruism evolves depending on the donor cost, that it should be less, and the benefit of the receptor that it should be higher.

In his formula, it is possible to appreciate this information in a clearer way

r × B > C

r represents the relatedness, B the benefit of the receptor and C the cost that the donor must pay.
