2. 
Simply \(\frac{2\frac{2}{3} \times 1\frac{1}{2}}{4\frac{4}{5}}\) A. \(1\frac{1}{4}\) B. \(1\frac{1}{6}\) C. \(\frac{5}{6}\) D. \(\frac{4}{5}\) 

3. 
Evaluate \(\frac{21}{9}\) to 3 significant figures A. 2.30 B. 2.31 C. 2.32 D. 2.33

5. 
If 27\(^{x + 2}\) \(\div\) 9\(^{x + 1}\) = 3\(^{2x}\), find x. A. 3 B. 4 C. 5 D. 6
Show Content
Detailed Solution\(27^{x + 2} \div 9^{x + 1} = 3^{2x}\)\(3^{3(x + 2)} \div 3^{2(x + 1)} = 3^{2x}\) \(3^{3x + 6} \div 3^{2x + 2} = 3^{2x}\) \(\therefore (3x + 6)  (2x + 2) = 2x\) \(x + 4 = 2x \implies x = 4\) There is an explanation video available below. 

6. 
If log_{3}x^{2} = 8, what is x? A. \(\frac{1}{3}\) B. \(\frac{1}{9}\) C. \(\frac{1}{27}\) D. \(\frac{1}{81}\) 

7. 
Simplify \((\sqrt{6} + 2)^2  (\sqrt{6}  2)^2\) A. \(2\sqrt{6}\) B. \(4\sqrt{6}\) C. \(8\sqrt{6}\) D. \(16\sqrt{6}\) 

8.
