Pre-Calculus? I wonder what the question is. In a basic algebra course, you would be looking for zeroes, and probably get those by factoring. 2x^2+11x-21=0 (2x-3)(x+7)=0 x= 1.5, or x=-7

Using the Law of Sines, L / sin64 = 34 / sin(90-12), L / sin64 = 34 / sin78, Multiply both sides by sin64: L = 34sin64 / sin78 = 31.2ft = Length of pole.

Do the last two first: (x-3i)(x+3i) You can do FOIL (the anwer to x*(-3i) is -3xi), however, notice x+9 is the answer. (x^2+9) is the difference of two squares, x and 3i, so (x^2+9)=(x+3i)*(x-3i) so you now have (x-3)(x^2+9) = x^3+9x -3x^3-27 Using the FOIL method.
