# Project #10919 - Finite Math

I have completed a few questions already, I have no idea if they are correct.  I need to pass this course for credit at work for CLE's. I need at least a 90% on this assignment.

There are 25 problems.
Problems #1–12 are Multiple Choice.
Problems #13–15 are Short Answer. (Work not required to be shown) Problems #16–25 are Short Answer with work required to be shown.
