1. If \$a \star b = 2a + 3b \$ for all a and b, then what is the value of \$4 \star 3\$?

2. Define \$\#N\$ by the formula \$\#N = .5(N)+1\$. Calculate \$\#(\#(\#50))\$.

3. If \$a+b=8\$, \$b+c=-3\$, and \$a+c=-5\$, what is the value of the product \$abc\$?

4. Davey Q. decides to factor the number 756 into primes. After doing so, he makes a list from this factorization, including each prime in the list as many times as it appears in the factorization. What is the mode of his list?

P.S: Plz label questions 1-4 when giving answers~

1. a \star b= 2a+3b

We plug in 4 and 3 for a and b. We have:

4 \star 3=2(4)+3(3)

4\star3=8+9

4\star3=17.

2. We plug in 50 for N in the given equation. Our answer is 8.

3. We can add all  equations together to get 2a+2b+2c=0. Then a+b+c=0. c must be -8, a must be 3, and b is 5. The product of abc is -8(3)(5)=-8*15=-120.

4. We prime factorize 756 to get 2^2 • 3^3 • 7. Mode is the number that appears most in the set. Since 3 appears 3 times in the prime factorization, which is the most, 3 is the mode of his list.

Guest, you didn't even say for which question the answer is 8...
