1)Find the sum of the infinite geometric series: 1 + 3/5 + 9/25 + ..., if it exists.

A)5/3
B)5/2
C)3/5
D)does not exist
I chose B

(3/5)/1 = .6
S = a1/1-r
1/1-.6
2.5

2)Use the Binomial Theorem to find the sixth term in the expansion of (m+2p)^7.

A)21m^2p^5
B)672m^2p^5
C)32m^2p^5
D)448mp^6

7/(7-k)!k!^m7-kpk
7/(7-5)!5!^m7-5p5
7*6*5*4*3/5*4*3*2*1^m2p5
2520/120
21m^2p^5

3)How many four-digit numerical codes can be created if no digit may be repeated?

A)10,000
B)24
C)3024
D)5040
I chose A

10*10*10*10
10,000

    #2 You forgot that 2 is also raised to the fifth.
    C(7,5)(m^2)(2p(^5
    = 21(2^5)m^2p^5
    =672m^2p^5

    #3. Digits may NOT be repeated, and probably cannot start with a zero.

    so 9x9x8x7 = 4536, which is none of their choices.

    if zeros would be allowed in the first position, then the answer would be
    1-x9x8x7 = 5040 which is choice D

    your choice A would include zeros, and repeating digits, even 0000,and 6666.

    I would guess that D is the choice they are after.

    #1 is ok

    typo in "1-x9x8x7 = 5040 which is choice D "

    should say:
    10x9x8x7 = 5040 which is choice D
