1. Simplify: (-4)(5)(-7)(2)

2. Two trains are approaching each other on the same track. They are 500 miles from each other. One train is traveling at 40 mph, the other at 60 mph. A bird is flying back and forth between them at 150 mph. How long before they collide?

3. Solve for y: x = (y-b) / m

4. Graph x - y = 4

5. A person wants to buy an article, and has a spending limit of $700.
