Please find the solutions/explanations attached herewith.

*1. Disregard

2. Simplify the following expression:

Solution:
Open the parenthesis, we will get
= -10t - 2y + 30y + 36t
combine similar terms, we will get
= 26t + 28y
3.
The surface area of a right prism is given by
,
where is the area of the base, is the perimeter of the base, and is the height of the prism.
Solve for .
Solution:
We can write it as
Ph = S - 2B
Divide each side by h, we will get

4. Solve the following equation for .

Simplify your answer as much as possible.
Solution:
Open the parenthesis, we will get
2x + 10 = -4x + 4
Bring all the variables to left side and numbers to right side, we will get
2x + 4x = 4 - 10
6x = -6
Divide each side by 6, we will get
=> x = -1
5. Graph the line.

Solution:
Let us find the x and y -intercepts of the given equation.
For finding x-intercept, put y = 0

x-intercept is ( ,0)
For finding y-intercept, put x = 0

y-intercept is (0, 3)
Plot the x and y-intercepts and join through line.
The graph is shown below:

7. Find the values of and that solve the following system of equations:
-------(i)
-----------(ii)
Solution:
Multiply equation (i) by 2 and add to equation (ii), we will get
11y = -36 + 14 = -22
=> y = -22/11 = -2

Now substitute value of y in equation (i), we will get
-4x + 3(-2) = -18
=> -4x - 6 = -18
=> -4x = -18 + 6 = -12
divide each side by -4, we will get
=> x = 3
The solution is x = 3, y = -2. ...
