Algebra

1. Express in terms of i:
-sqrt(-297)

2. Rewrite with positive exponents. Assume that even roots are of nonnegative quantities and that all denominators are nonzero.
8-1/3ax-7/8z^8

3. Simplify. Assume that no radicals were formed by raising negative numbers to even powers.
sqrt(20)k^7q^8

4. Simplify:
(-3a^2)^3

(2xy)^(-3)

3x^8 + 8x^7 + 6x^6 - 4
5x^8 + 2x^7 + 6x^6 - 8

7. Find the degree of the given polynomial.
-4y^8 - 3x^7z + 4xz^7

8. Multiply.
(m^3n - 9)(m^3n - 5)

9. Perform the indicated operation.
(42k^3 + 12k^2 + 18k) ÷ (6k)

10. Solve the problem. If necessary, round to the nearest tenth.
A car dealer advertised a big sale by stretching a string of banners from the top of the building to the edge of the driveway. If the building is 26 m high and the driveway is 43 m from the building, how long is the string of banners?

11. Factor the expression into a product of two binomials.
5x(3x - 5) + 2(3x - 5)

12. Factor completely. If the polynomial is prime, state this.
75x^2 - 3

13. Factor completely. If the polynomial is prime, state this.
48x^2 + 40xy - 48y^2

14. Factor by grouping, if possible.
x^3 + 3x^2 + 8x + 24
