My teacher gave me no infomation on how to get these answers, so I hope you guys can help me. <br />If you don't want to give me the answers because you feel it immoral or something. can you atleast point me in the direction of the answer please.<br /><br />1. Consider the age of Herodotus and Schroters Valley relative to surrounding features. Are they older or younger than Aristarchus? What is your evidence? <br /><br />2. What is the age of the Davey crater chain relative to the surface on which it is developed? Explain. <br /><br />3. Are Lunar Maria older or younger than lunar highlands? Explain your reasoning.<br /><br />4. Did most of the cratering on the Moon occer before or after the Maria formed? What evidence is there for your answer?<br /><br />5. Are the rayed craters Copernicus, Langrenus, Orientale, And Aristarchus older or younger than lunar highlands? Why?<br /><br />6. Are they older or younger than the maria? Why?<br /><br />7. Rocks from the Lunar maria obtanied during the manned Apollo landings have absolute ages of 3.2-4.0 Billion years. How old are the Lunar highlands?<br /><br />8. Scientists regard the youngest features of the moon to be less than a billion years old. List these features.<br /><br />9. HOw old are the rayed craters of the Moon? (given the infromation from 5,6,8)<br /><br />Now before you go flameing me for not doing my homework, these are only&nbsp;9 questions. out of the 30 he gave.<br />I tryed my best to find these answers, but I'm stuck. Your my last hope! please help!

<p>looks like you missed a key concept in your reading material.</p><p>A lot of these questions can be answered by looking at photographs of the objects, and applying a basic geologic principle: Overlapping indicates age.</p><p>Newer craters obscure, destroy, change older craters.&nbsp; If crater A is whole, and "covers" crater B, then crater A is newer.</p><p>So, look for features of the named locations and craters that indicate one of them is "on top".&nbsp; That one is newer.</p><p>This can, in general, be applied to regions if you assume the region was crafted at about a single time.&nbsp; It's just like individual craters.&nbsp; Look for features of the regions that indicate they are "on top" of the other region where the two regions meet.&nbsp;</p><p>Your text probably has a section discussing how features of the moon are dated in general if you want more detailed information.&nbsp;</p> <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p align="center"><font color="#c0c0c0"><br /></font></p><p align="center"><font color="#999999"><em><font size="1">--------</font></em></font><font color="#999999"><em><font size="1">--------</font></em></font><font color="#999999"><em><font size="1">----</font></em></font><font color="#666699">SaiphMOD@gmail.com </font><font color="#999999"><em><font size="1">-------------------</font></em></font></p><p><font color="#999999"><em><font size="1">"This is my Timey Wimey Detector.  Goes "bing" when there's stuff.  It also fries eggs at 30 paces, wether you want it to or not actually.  I've learned to stay away from hens: It's not pretty when they blow" -- </font></em></font><font size="1" color="#999999">The Tenth Doctor, "Blink"</font></p> </div>
