FM Exam Study Day 3

Posted 07-05-2013 at 06:39 PM by carolinacoast

Solving these problems is taking me forever and I know I am probably taking too much time on them, but I think it is necessary to get the basic concepts down first. Some of the things that I'm having trouble with the most is actually just simply solving quadratic equations that involve decimals and imaginary numbers (I know that is so seventh grade!) But, I need to brush up on my skills and just keep learning how to set up the problems and I should be straight.
