  1. #1 you cannot divide by zero. So, when the denominator is zero, that value of x must be excluded. So, what is x when 3x-6=0?

    #2 ok

    #3 use the quadratic formula for this one.

    #4 Nope.
    4^0 = 1
    2^-3 = 1/2^3 = 1/8
    So, 1 - 1/8 = 7/8
    You calculated 4^0 - 2^3

    #5 correct. So why did you have trouble with #1?

    #6 since a^-n = 1/a^n, and 1/(a/b) = b/a,
    (2x^5y^2/ 8x)^-2
    = (x^4y^2/4)^-2
    = 1/(x^4y^2/4)^2
    = (4/(x^4y^2))^2
    = 16/(x^8y^4)

  2. 1. x = 2?

    3. 0.70 = 1 (rounded to the nearest tenth)?

  3. #1 ok

    #3 .701 = 0.7 to the nearest tenth. Your rounding doesn't have any tenths!
