(5 pts) Completely simplify the following: x2 −9 5x x2 −5x+6 10x2 2. (5 pts) Steve is competing in a race. The course is in the shape of a right triangle with checkpoints at the vertices. The first leg of the course is uphill and in a Northwest direction. Steve runs at a speed of s, and gets to the first check station after 2 hours. The second leg of the race is downhill and in a Northeast direction. He runs 5 miles per hour faster then his beginning speed, and gets to the second checkpoint after 1 hour. The last leg of the race is 9 miles. How fast did Steve run uphill? Second Check Station First Check Station Start and Finish Line 3.
