• Give simple answers (i.e. 4, not x=4).
• Always write fractions as improper fractions, not mixed fractions (i.e. 10/3, not 3 1/3).
• Square roots should be listed as the following: "SQRT(x)" (i.e. 5SQRT(89) not (5)SQRT(89))
• When giving an answer with exponents, refer to them in the following manner: (x^2) not x^2.
• List variables in alphabetical order (i.e. xyz, not zxy).
• When listing factors, list in alphabetical order, then by the highest coefficient.
• After completing the above step, list factors with the same coefficient from plus to minus, then highest to lowest addition or subtraction.
• Example for factoring: "(4x+2)4x(3x+2)(3x-2)(3x-1)(6y+3)6yz"
• If there is no solution, type no solution.  If the solution is all real numbers, type real.
• PI should be expressed as PI (notice the capital letters).
• Although you should always label clearly when answering word problems, for the sake of simplicity during this quiz please omit any labels.
• If you wish to stop the quiz at any time, type quit as the answer.
Remember, this quiz is to be used as a tool to help you figure out how well you understand the concept, not to figure out how well you can sort through all the rules.  If you miss a problem because you didn't put it in alphabetical order, etc., don't worry about it!  Consider it to be correct.
