Question 2 should be 2q – 1 not 2q + 1

Questions 7 and 21 seem wrong. Please check again. The question in number 7 says it will add 50L of the 1% Buttermilk. But in the equation, it says 50L(0.04) which is the 4% Buttermilk solution. Also, in number 21, the answer should be (m+n)^2q1 since the other m+n was under the division bar and should be subtracted.
mali po yung sagot sa Q 11. dapat po 4±3√2 kase √72=6√2 divided by 2=3√2
22 out of 25…. 5 questions did not display choices
Nasan na yung test?
