#12 (Commutative & Associative Properties)
-8 + 12 - 9 - 15 + 6 - 22 + 3

#34 (Distributive Property)
Use distributive property to write each sum or difference as a product.
7b - 49

#54 Multiplication Property of Zero
x * 5 = 5x

#26 (Using the Properties in Computation)
Perform each computation. Make use of appropriate rules to simplify each problem
33 * 2 - 12 * 33

#38 (Combining like terms)
-19m - (-3m)

#100 Simplify each expression
2(xsubscript 2 - 3)-(6xsubscript 2 - 2) + 2(-7xsubscript 2 - 4)

#36 (Add and Sub of polynomials)
(2x - 5) - (xsuscript2 - 3x + 2)

#42 Perform and indicate operations vertically
Subtract
-3xsubscript 2 + 5x - 2
xsubscript 2 - 5x - 6

#56 Multiplication of polynomials
(xsubscript2 - 3x + 2)(x - 4)

#92 Perform the indicated operations. A variable used in an exponent represents and integer; a variable used as a base represents a nonzero real number.
(bsubscript3z - 6) -(4bsubscript3z - 7)

#24 The FOIL method--find each product.
(7a - 2x)(x + a)

#34 The Square of a Binomial. Find the square of each sum or difference
(3w - 2x)subscript2

#44 Product of a sum and a difference
(3 + 5x)(3 - 5x)

NOTE WHERE I HAVE TYPED IN SUBSCRIPT AND THE NUMBER, I DID THAT BECAUSE I DONT KNOW HOW TO MAKE THE NUMBER SMALL TO SHOW HOW IT IS WRITTEN IN MY PROBLEM. THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR HELP.

What are the secrets, tools, resources used to do find a solution to a problems?

I typically use Ask Jeeves, and Google to find the answers to many of my solutions. My guess your team has an arsenal of tools to find the answers to any problem. I am interested based on, the specifics to a problem, the constraints of time, the large diversity of questions, how you find a solution to the many problems that are presented.

Perhaps, at the PHD level you are taught how to find, and document research at greater speed. What tools, or methodologies do you use that you would be willing to share?

Any points would be appreciated, it will make my life easier, and help me down the road, when I work on my PHD. I prefer to ask the experts!

Sincerely, and Thank you
