**Hint for process of elimination:** Taking test values such as and and carefully using order of operations will help you eliminate most or all answers. If your own choice of values of and do not eliminate all choices, making a second choice (or in very extreme cases even a third choice) will finish off all remaining incorrect answers.

Another hint is, variables are never being multiplied with other variables, this eliminates choices D and E. Also, there is nothing in the original expression which can combine with and eliminate the number 2 from the expression. This eliminates choices A and C, leaving you with the correct answer, B.

**Hint for process of elimination: **Since and are both positive, is also positive. Therefore . This eliminates choice E, leaving you with four choices. Some awareness about how big or small the answer should be, for example noting that , may help you eliminate choice D for being too big, and choice A for being too small.

**Hint for process of elimination: **If we read carefully, we notice that the price of a single pair of shoes at the shoe store is . The problem asks for the difference involving the cost of *eight* pairs of shoes at the shoe store. Therefore, the answer must have a term of . This eliminates choices A, C, and E.

You can now try to reason through choices B and D. Since you eliminated three choices, you are statistically likely to improve your score by not leaving the answer blank, so you have to choose either B or D.
