    Solution:

    4.
    Simplify.

    Assume that all variables represent positive real numbers.
    Solution:

    5.
    Multiply. Simplify your answer as much as possible.

    Solution:

    By combining similar terms, we will get

    6.
    Rationalize the denominator and simplify:

    Solution:

    7.
    Write in simplified radical form by rationalizing the denominator.

    Solution:

    8.
    Solve for :
    ,
    where is a real number.
    (If there is more than one solution, separate them with commas.)
    Solution:
    Squaring each side, we will get

    z + 13 = 9
    Subtract 13 from each side, we will get
    z = 9 - 13 = -4
    9.
    Solve the following equation for :
    ,
    where is a real number.
    (If there is more than one solution, ...
