That is what I had before. What is the diagrams for #1, #3, and #18? If this is from a file on your computer, please upload it either here or at a site like wikisend.com. I can do the rest until then.

#1: missing diagram.

#2: running 10000 simulations, I found that 905 were 3 out of 5 correct. This is 9.05% chance of getting exactly 3 out of 5 correct.

#3: missing diagram

#4: Tan 32 = 1700/x, so x=2721 feet

#5: 1/4. Each has a 0.5 chance of getting an odd, so you multiply for them both to be odd.

#6: Irrational. Only square roots of perfect squares are rational.

#7a: P=2(L+W) -> 134 ≤ 2(L+29)

#7b: 67 ≤ L+29 -> 38≤L

#8a: 402-15L=237

#8b: 165 = 15L -> 11=L

#8c: 237 / 19 = 12.47, so 12 lessons.

#9: 6^2 + 21^2 =/= 23^2. this is not a right triangle.

#10: 29187 / 100

#11: 9-5=4. 15-9=6. Since the subtraction differential changes, it is not an arithmetic sequence.

#12: 1->8. 2->64 3->512 4->4096

#13: y=1/x is exponential decay. The rate declines quickly at first, but slows down and never reaches 0.

#14: Since the sequence is not arithmetic nor geometric, the answer must be A

#15: 12/3 = 4. 36/12=3. The ratio changes. Not geometric.

#16: It passes the vertical line test, so it is a function.

#17a: The side opposite the 60° angle is √3 times the first side, so 41√3 = 71

#17b: The hypotenuse is twice the side opposite the 30° angle, so 82

#17c: sin 30°=0.5. cos 30°=0.8660. tan 30°=0.5774

#18: Missing diagram.

#19a: m=0.9144y

#19b: m=0.9144(7200) -> 6583.68 m

#19c: 2500=0.9144y -> y = 2500/0.9144 -> 2734.03 yds

#20: 480-60=420. 420/30=14 weeks
