Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. If you have lost your book and can not retreive it, contact a school that uses that textbook to see if you can "borrow" one. Also contact your local library to see if they have a copy. Most school districts have copies available from the publisher on hand for evaluation. List the name of that textbook in case we can find it online.

#25 is correct.

Be sure to indicate what you think the answers are. Then someone here will give you feedback.


haha that's the problems the only 2 i know i did indicate...the others im completely clueless lol...

Obviously, we're not going to do your exam for you. We've already graduated from high school and have a couple of college degrees. I urge you to follow SraJMcGin's advice and try to borrow a copy of your text. If that's not possible, then you'll probably need to bite the bullet and buy a new textbook.
