First midterm-Practice test

This is a practice exam for the first midterm. Feel free to drop any comment or question below. I will try to answer here as many as possible, until Wednesday Sept 07. Also, remember that Alex is holding a review session during his recitation on Monday Sept 05, and Kevin will be available during his usual SI sessions. Good luck!

    Are you going to post the answers for this before the test tomorrow?

    For number 7, I get arcsin (x/k) = pi*2k. Now, where do I go from there? I know that the x value is anywhere from -k to k, but in any case I will just get an angle. How do I find something that will produce the 2k part of the answer?
