Algebra 1 Midterm Exam Review

>= means greater than or equal to <= means less than or equal to ^ means the number is squared Some questions require you to graph equations. No graphs will be given. Currently a work in progress. I will update answers as the break continues. Work is shown first. Then the answer is at the bottom.
