PRACTICE USING FACTORING FORMULAS 
NetScape 3.0+ or Internet Explorer 4.0+ is required
Suggestions for this self exam:
[A] 
Study the 6 factoring formulas described in chapter 3. Each
of these rules applies to a particular "FORM" of expression,
so you must identify the "form" of your expression before
choosing a formula to factor it. 
[B] 
Keep your mouse arrow to the side as you think.
With NetScape 3.0 or better (as in most UWW labs), move your mouse over the
proper button (without clicking) to check your answer. For any browser, you may also click on the
buttons, and factors are revealed at the correct button.
