A.7
B.11
C.12
D.17

2. Consider the following formula:
y = 3 ( x + 5 ) ( x - 2 )

Which of the following formulas is equivalent to this one?

B. y=x2+3x-lO
C. y=3x2+3x-lO
D. y=3x2+3x-30

3. Consider the following pattern of numbers:
110, 112, 107, 109, 104

What is the next number in the pattern?
A.97
B. 99
