There are well over 200 boys altogether and only 56 chose Niagara Falls — way less than half so 2 of the answers can be eliminated.

How many boys chose Niagara Falls?

What was the total number of boys?

Use division:

56 out of the total number of boys

This question can be done in many ways. Students can cross multiply or find a common denominator or even try each of the four answers to find the one that when you add 10 to that number (x + 10) and then divide that by 15, the answer is 4/3.

That’s it — 2 points on the Regents!!

For this question, we need to use the Distributive Property:

2(x^2 – 1) = 2x^2 – 2

while

3x(x – 4) = 3x^2 – 12x

Combine like terms and only the x^2 are combinable.

A way to check your work is to put 2(x^2 – 1) + 3x(x – 4) into Y1 and to put each multiple choice answer into Y2 and then compare to see if the tables for Y1 and Y2 are equivalent.

A function is defined as no repeating x values. Please take a look above and see which table has unique x values. That’s it — 2 points 🙂

This is actually a reading question!

If x = 0, it will still cost 250

If x = 1, the cost should be 273 (250 + 23)

If x = 2, the cost should be 296 (250 + 23 + 23)

Try these values for x and you will find the answer 🙂
