Don't know where you copied the problems from, but the font got garbled for many of the problems. Anyway, trying to work past the font munging,
* means wrong
1. garbled, but probably B or D
2. C if outside is 15°F
3. B if it was (2x + 3)(x  4)
4. garbled, but since 7 divides 84, probably C or D
5. garbled, but probably C  the coefficients seem good
6. B
7. D if it was (5+42)(2)
*8. C if it was (2e2f)(2f+8)
9. B
10. A or C, but too garbled
11. C if (x^2+16)(x^216) = x^4256
12. B
13. C
*14. D garbled, but if the whole parenthesized expression is squared, then the coefficient must be 64, not 64. Also, (A) has q^9, which cannot be a square.
15. B
16. B
17. D
18. C
19. D
20. A
most look good; better doublecheck #8,14. If I interpreted them correctly, yo missed them.
