Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@Rosy95: there will be an occasion when there are no answers... Therefore, it is always better to learn how to do such a problem (see @blurbendy's method), so next time you'll know what to do.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Oh ok. Well to give you an example. I had a 40 question math test and only 35 were NOT multipul choice, so even if you miss the written ones, you will still pass.
