I stopped at 7. You have successfully missed all of them so far.
Please. One problem at a time.
bobpursley just to let you know I already know that number 1,2,3,4,6,8,12,15,and 18 right. I took the test and it tells me what ones I got right and what one I got wrong. So maybe it is you who successfully missed them all.... Not to be mean but I do know some things...
r you doing pennfoster
