x2 + 2x - 15 < 0 ?
Choose:
 -3 < x < 5 -5 < x < 3 x < -5 or x > 3 x < -3 or x > 5

2.
Which choice is the solution to the inequality:
x2 - 4x - 5 < 0 ?
Choose:
 {x | -1 < x < 5} {x | x < -1} {x | -5 < x < 1} {x | x < -1 or x > 5}

3.
Which inequality's solution is shown by this graph?

Choose:
 x2 + 3x > 0 x2 - 3x > 0 x2 + 3x < 0 x2 - 3x < 0

4.
