  • math -

    what is your thinking? We don't do tests for you.

    That would be cheating.

  • math -

    it is not a test, it is a practice quiz they helped us make in order to prepare for the test, I just want help double checking my answers

  • math -

    That's fine -- but I don't see YOUR answers. If you post them, someone will check them for you.

  • math -

    1) a
    2) b
    3) d
    4) a
    5) d

  • math -

    Were those wild guesses? In #2, the discriminant (b^2 = 4ac) is obviously not 4.
