**Steve**, Wednesday, September 5, 2012 at 3:34pmDon'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+4-2)(-2)

*8. C if it was (2e-2f)(2f+8)

9. B

10. A or C, but too garbled

11. C if (x^2+16)(x^2-16) = x^4-256

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 double-check #8,14. If I interpreted them correctly, yo missed them. - algebra -
