MATH107 University of Maryland University Simplifying Expressions Quiz 5

Need to make sure my solutions are right. Anytime I solve on my own I make mistakes and my grades keep going down.

Math 107 Quiz 5
Professor: Dr. Kamal Hennayake

The quiz is worth 50 points. There are 10 problems, each worth 5 points. Your score on the quiz will be
converted to a percentage and posted in your assignment folder with comments.
This quiz is open book and open notes, and you may take as long as you like on it provided that you
submit the quiz no later than the due date posted in our course schedule of the syllabus. You may refer
to your textbook, notes, and online classroom materials, but you may not consult anyone.
You must show all of your work to receive full credit. If a problem does not seem to require work, write
a sentence or two to justify your answer.
Please type your work in your copy of the quiz, or if you prefer, create a document containing your
work. Scanned work is also acceptable. Be sure to include your name in the document. Review
instructions for submitting your quiz in the Quizzes Module.
If you have any questions, please contact me by e-mail (
At the end of your quiz you must include the following dated statement with your name typed in lieu of
a signature. Without this signed statement you will receive a zero.
I have completed this quiz myself, working independently and not consulting anyone except the instructor. I
have neither given nor received help on this quiz.
Please remember to show ALL of your work on every problem. Read the basic rules for
showing work below BEFORE you start working on the quiz.
a) Each step should show the complete expression or equation rather than a piece of it.
b) Each new step should follow logically from the previous step, following rules of algebra.
c) Each new step should be beneath the previous step.
d) The equal sign, =, should only connect equal numbers or expressions.
If you have questions about showing work, please ask.
