YOU SHOULD
FOCUS YOUR EFFORTS ON 81 thru 84 since that is what is on the quiz... a
good idea would be to do some problems on the MidChapter Quiz on page
510... hw#85: Due (don't worry too much about this assignment... we will be reviewing it next week) pg 514 #19 All, #11,15,23,27,31,35 (#35 is a little tricky... see Problem 5 on pg 514) pg 520521 #15,19,23
