Nullify Question 19 on The Algebra II Common Core Regents

This petition had 80 supporters

#19 on the Algebra 2 Common Core Regents regarded extraneous solutions. 0 and 2 were solutions that could have been obtained while solving the equation. However, although 0 was clearly not an extraneous solution, substituting 2 in for x while checking to see if 2 was an extraneous solution led to undefined values. With undefined numbers the basic laws of Algebra and operations were not able to be applied. Therefore, both 2 and 0 were both acceptable solutions. HOWEVER, only 2 was an extraneous solution, which was contradictory. In signing this petition, it will call for the full number of points that #19 was worth added to the scores of those who were marked incorrect.
