Test out each of the answers to find out which one(s) will print out 26

I. 13 is odd, print out 13 × 2 = 26

II. 26 is even, print out 26

III. 52 is even, print out 52

**Answer: (C) I and II only **

**9. Correct answer: (A) 60 m + s**

**Answer: (A) 60 m + s**

**10. Correct answer: (D)
**Given:

(2

To find:

Possible values of *x*

Solution:

(2*x* – 2)(2 – *x*) = 0
