8th grade homework help?

We have to do a weekly work sheet called "warm ups." Here are the problems I haven't done yet. I need at least 7/10 done to turn in tomorrow, but if anyone can figure out the other ones, more than 7 will increase my chances of passing the homework. So please help if you know the answer. When you go to write it, please write the number next to it. Thanks!
