  2. 1. (12,8), (4,2).
    d^2 = (4-12)^2 + (2-8)^2 = 100,
    d = 10.

    2. (3,1), (7,-5).
    Xo = (3+7) / 2 = 5.
    Yo = (1-5) / 2 = -2.
    M((Xo,Yo),
    M(5,-2).

    3. 4Y = X^2 + 4.
    Divide both sides by 4:
    Y = (1/4)X^2 + 1,

    h = Xv = -b/2a = -0 / (1/2) = 0.

    k = Yv = (1/4)0^2 + 1 = 1.

    V(h,k) = V(0,1).

    F(0,Y2),
    VF = Y2 - k = 1/4a,
    Y2 - 1 = 1/1 = 1,
    Y2 = 2.

    F(h,Y2) = F(0,2).

    4. X^2 + 10X + Y^2 = 75.

    Complete the square:
    X^2 + 10X + (10/2)^2 + Y^2 = 75 + 25,
    X^2 + 10X + 25 + Y^2 = 100,
    The 1st 3 terms is a perfect square.
    (X+5)^2 + Y^2 = 100,
    (X+5)^2 + (Y-0)^2 = 100 = r^2,
    Eq: (X-h)^2 + (Y-k)^2 = 100 = r^2.
    C(h,k) = C(-5,0).

    r^2 = 100.
    r = 10.

    5. X^2 + Y^2 - 4X + 12Y -6 = 0.

    Complete the square:
    X^2-4X+(-4/2)^2+Y^2+12Y+(12/2)^2-6=0,

    X^2-4X+4 + Y^2+12Y+36-6=0+4+36,
    (X-2)^2 + Y+6)^2 = 40+6=46

    This is the Eq of a circle.

    6. Eq1: x^2 + y^2 = 64,
    Eq2: x^2 + 64y^2 = 64.

    Multiply both sides of Eq1 by -1,and
    add the Eqs:

    -X^2 -Y^2 = -64
    X^2 + 64Y^2 = 64.
    Sum: 64y^2 = 0,
    Y = 0.

    Substitute "0" for Y in Eq1:
    X^2 + 0^2 = 64,
    X = +- 8.

    Substitute +-8 for X in Eq2 and solve for Y in each case:
    (8,0), (-8,0).

    7. Substitute -2 for X and solve for Y.
    Y = -29.

    8. Y = X^3 + X^2 - 14X - 24.
    The zeroes are the points where the graph crosses the X-axis(Y=0).

    By trial and eror,a value of X(-2) was found that gives a Y value of 0 when
    plugged into the given Eq.

    (-2,0).
    X = -2,
    X+2 = 0.

    Therefore, x+2 is a factor of the Eq.
    So we divide the Eq by x+2 using long-
    hand(synthetic) division and get:

    X^2 - X - 12,
    We now have Y = (X+2)(X^2 -X - 12).
    Then we factor the Quadratic and get:

    Y = (X+2)(X-4)(X+3).
    X= -2,4,and -3.

    9. Use same procedure as prob. 8 and
    get: X = -3,-1, and 2.
