    Wow, do you actually expect somebody to do all those questions for you??

    Why not show some work, and I would be ever so happy to critique it.

    for example in the first five, why don't you expand the answers that are given to see which matches your question?
    same thing for problems such as #10, just expand it and see what happens.

    NO I DON'T EXPECT ANYONE TO DO THEM FOR ME I AM IN HOMESCHOOL AND I HAVE NOT BEEN IN AN ALGEBRA CLASS IN A WHILE SO WHEN THEY GAVE ME A LESSON ON IT I WAS BLANK I DON'T REMEMBER ANYTHING FROM REGULAR SCHOOL AND JUST NEED HELP FINDING OUT WHERE TO BEGIN OR I NEED AN EXAMPLE PROBLEM WHERE I CAN FOLLOW EACH STEP.TY
