(a) |10| Answer: 10 (b) | − 225| Answer: 225 (c) −| − 85| Answer: −85 (d) −|16| Answer: −16 Answer: −6 3. (3 points) Evaluate the expression. 42 − 5 −7 11 Bonus (1 points) If you finish the problems early and have some extra time to kill, try this problem. But be sure you did all the three problems correctly. Make an expression using 3, 3, 8, 8, +, −, ×, ÷, ( and ) such that the value of this expression is 24. You have to use each of the four numbers exactly once, but you may use the operations and parentheses as many times as you wish. For example, 3 − (3 + 8) + 8 is legal though the value is not 24, but 3 × 8 is not allowed. Answer: 8 ÷ (3 − 8 ÷ 3)
