### Subject: Study Skills

How do I go about studying for a multiple choice test?

First of all, do not focus merely on memorization. Take about 15 minutes each night to review the material you went over in class so you are not cramming it all in the night before. Second of all, think of different ways that help you study like: notecards, writing down your notes over and over, reading the textbook, reading over your notes multiple times, listening to different videos, or even try coming up with different mnemonic devices. Thirdly when you actually take the test try these strategies: 1. Go through the test multiple times and answer all the ones you are sure of. Then go back through the test and look at the ones you did not know and get rid of any answers you know are incorrect. Lastly, make you best educated guess 2. Remember: absolute answers are rarely the correct answers, the correct answer normally has more details, and for math the numbers will rarely be outrageously big or ridiculously small

### Subject: Basic Math

Solve for n in the equation: 7n+12=61

First we identify where the n is and we determine what we must do to get n by itself. The first thing we must do is get 12 on the other side, and to do that we must subtract 12 from both sides of the equation. This then gives us 7n=49. Now to isolate n we must get rid of the 7, and to do that we will divide 7 from both sides. This gives us 7/7 which equals 1, and 49/7 which equals 7. Therefore the answer to the equation is n=7.
