Slide 38: 

Suppose that the graph of a system of two linear equations consists of lines that have the same slope and different y-intercepts. How many solutions does the system have? Infinite number of solutions One solution No solution

Slide 39: 

A 95% confidence interval for the population mean of birth weights of babies born in the US in a 2005 was found to be (6.85, 7.61). (1) Is it correct to say that 95% of all birth weights will be between 6.85 and 7.61 pounds? (2) Is it correct to say that there’s a 95% chance that the population mean is between 6.85 and 7.61? Yes No http://derekbruff.com/teachingwithcrs/?p=135

Slide 43: 

Starting from f(x); to graph of 7f(2x + 3) – 4 we should transform in this order: Down -4, vertical stretch by 7, left by 3 and horizontal shrink by 2. Left by three, horizontal shrink by 2, vertical stretch by 7, down 4. Horizontal shrink by 2, left by three, vertical stretch by 7, down by 4. It doesn't matter what order, just do all four transformations. http://mathquest.carroll.edu/libraries/GoodQuestionsForCA.pdf

Slide 45: 

If and g(x) = x + 2, then we can say the functions f and g are equal. True—high confidence True—low confidence False—low confidence False—high confidence http://mathquest.carroll.edu/libraries/GoodQuestionsForCA.pdf
