1.

y = 10 - x^2

x = sqrt(10-y)

domain: y <= 10

I don't see that as a choice.

2.

1/f + 1/j = 15/8

but f = j+2

1/(j+2) + 1/j = 15/8

8(j + j+2) = 15j(j+2)

16j + 16 = 15j^2 + 30j

15j^2 + 14j - 16 = 0

(3j-2)(5j+8) = 0

j = 2/3

so, f = 2 2/3

I don't see that as a choice.

4.

The answer is C, not B because 1/(x-2) is not defined.

5. C correct

6. D correct

For number 4, I got this answer after calculating...

4x/(x-2)=(3x-2)/(x-2)

4x(x-2)=(3x-2)(x-2)

4x^2 - 8x = 3x^2 - 6x - 2x + 4

4x^2-3x^2-8x+6x+2x-4=0

x^2 - 4 =0

(x-2)(x+2)=0

x= 2, -2

Am I doing something wrong?

Yes. 2 is not allowed as a solution, since putting it into the original equation gives

4x/(x-2)=(3x-2)/(x-2)

48/0 = 10/0

make that

4/0 = 10/0
