# Intermediate Algebra

I have a take home test and I'm stuck on a couple. Anyone help please?

1. Find the vertex & axis of symmetry: -5(x+4)^2-4
2. Find the vertex & axis of symmetry: y=x^2-10x+3
3. Simplify: (2i+5)(3+4i)
4. Simplify: 3(21+2i)+(4-5i)
5. Simplify: (27x^2y^3)^-3/4
6. Simplify: 5�ã300x^4-2�ã243x^4
7. Simplify: 3�ã3(4�ã3+5�ã2)
8. Simplify: (2�ã3+�ã6)^2
9. Simplify: ^4�ã50 divided by ^4�ã2
10. 7 divided by ^3�ã4
11. 4 divided by �ã5-2

1. note: The a keys are supposed to be square root. I guess the sign doesn't show up here. Also, some are to the power of.

2. To answer number 3 use f.o.i.l and then wherever you get isquared turn to a negative 1

(2i+5)(3+4i)
6i + 8i^2 + 15 + 20i
6i +8(-1) + 15 + 20i
6i - 8 + 15 + 20i
26i + 7

3. the first two questions form the basics of this topic on quadratic equations.

If you cannot determine the vertex from

y = -5(x+4)^2-4

I think you are in deep trouble.

#3 is done for you, do #4 the same way

#5 (27x^2y^3)^-3/4 = 1/(27x^2y^3)^+3/4
any more "simplification" would only make it look more complicated

#6 I cannot tell where your square root ends.
Is it (5�√300)x^4-2�(√243)x^4
or
5�√(300x^4)-2�√(243)x^4) ?

if the first, then
=5*(10√3)x^4 - 2(9√3)x^4
= (32√3)x^4

#7,8, just expand them

#9 and #10, don't know what you mean by
^4√50, there is no base.
