I need a note page that will assis me in passing a proctored final test. Itmust be very clear as my memory is not going to be good. I have attached the review final test that should be similar to the test I will take. I know it is bad but I just cannot seem to grasp math very good. I am hoping to be able to change numbers and work the formulas. Help me if you can.

I am putting $20 because it doesnt give the opportunity to say 20 + depnding on the work. There should be a check box for a bonus for supberb work.

Thanks for looking.
