Correct Answer and Feedback

1.

D.

500,6

To answer this item correctly requires two steps. First you

must convert points to thousands of an inch. To do this,

multiply 36 by 13.6; the result is 489.6; the closest template

is size 500. You may also remember that 36 points is 1/2 inch,

and that 500 is 1/2 of one thousand and therefore, is also 1/2

inch. The second part of this item requires you to refer to

figure 33 and select the proper pen point for the template

(page 34, para 3b(l) and figure 33).

2.

C.

750

The largest template provided with a standard Leroy set is 500.

The adjustable scriber provides the capability to increase this

by 150% or 1.5 times (500 x 1.5 is 750) (page 36, para 4b).

3.

D.

Proportional fonts follow instructions imbedded in the computer

to assign space to letters. Instructions are similar to those

you learned in this subcourse (page 311, para 8d and appendix

C).

4.

B.

10

To correctly respond to this item you must understand that the

size of a letter produced by Harvard Graphics is a function of

the paper size. If you desire a letter that is 72 points (1

inch high) you must calculate this as a function of the paper

size. In this situation 1 inch divided by 10 inches is 10%.

Therefore, select size 10 letters (page 311, para 8f(2)).
