1. Multiply   (x + y)(x2 - xy + y2)

2. Use long division to get a quotient and a remainder.

3. Solve for   x   and check.     3(2x - 5) + 4 = 2(x - 3) - x

4. Graph   y = 3x - 2

5. After 1 month. there is $500 in a bank account, and after 4 months, there is $1400. Assume that the amount of money grows linearly. Find an equation which will predict how much money you will have as a function of the number of months. Use this equatiion to predict how much money should be in the account after 12 months. When will there be $2000 in the account?

6. Solve for   x and y   using

and check.

7. Solve     2x2 + x - 6 = 0

using

and check

8. Graph   y = 2x2 + x - 6

Find

Write the equation in the form   y = a(x - h)2 + k
