  1. 1-4 correct
    5. your probably meant: cos(5π/6) which is cos 150° = -.866..
    so it is negative, ruling out A and B
    C. sin(5pi / 3) ****
    D. cos(7pi / 6) *****

    6 ok
    7 ok
    8 y = 3sin(4x - pi) ---> y = 3sin(4(x - π/4) ) , so the shift is π/4
    9 -10 ok
    11. 2sin(2x)cos(x) - sin(2x) = 0
    sin(2x)(2cosx - 1) = 0
    sin(2x) = 0, 2x = 0, 2x = π, 2x = 2π
    x = 0, π/2, ..
    or
    cosx = 1/2, x = ± π/3

    so x = 0, π/2, ±π/3

    12 - 15 ok

    16. <-6,4)dot<7,10) = magnitude1 * magnitude2 * cos(theta)
    -2 = √52√140cos theta
    theta = 91.3°

    I have only time for these right now, hope this helps.
