Question 2 is a nasty trick by some mean spirited maffs teacher, but 5 is just wrong.

Question five is pissing me off.

96*5^(0.5)

The questions are different every time. The one I tried had two questions with no correct answer among the 3 options within the first 5! And a broken link in question 2. I didn't bother trying any more after that! :airwank:

Yep. I was pissed because the three given answers were all wrong. I didn't realize the test changes each time it's loaded. :|

96*5^(0.5) [cause I don't know how to type the sqrt character here] was the correct answer to question 5.

Question 2 was factoring a simple quadratic: q2+7q-144

Question 5 was [IIRC - I wrote it down when I was not sober]: 3√40 * 8√2
