D rections: Read thr ugh the entire test before doing any writing. Ifthere is anything unclear in . the wording of a question be sure to ask me about it. I have left room below each question for you to write your answer. If you need more room then use the back of any of the pages but be sure to indicate which problem is being continued on the back page. At the end of each problem I have noted the number of points that the problem is worth — obviously, you want to put more effort into those problems which are worth more points than those which are worth less. The test is worth 100 points. Remember to check your work. Good luck. i . a a , . m = .. r. T. F. i 74 .. a s: o - Some of our common crabs Mid-Term #2 I AGE 312-02! Winter 2000 , ~1- Name: I.
