In my previous post I noted that one of the Wally's textbooks was explicity written to cover all of what was on the New York Regents exams, which still exist today - although the ones for January 2022 have been cancelled due to COVID-19. What about these exams is so enduring that thay have lasted since 1865? The exams have been cancelled multiple times more than once during the pandemic and that makes me wonder. Are these exams really all that important? And if not, why administer them at all? But I digress.
Here is the problem I had posted previously. Did you try to solve it or give it to some students to try to solve?
