Hi Kendra,


First we define pure substance, mixture, heterogenous, and homogenous:

A pure substance is one compound by itself

A mixture is 2 or more compounds

A heterogenous mixture has compounds unevenly distributed

A homogenous mixture is evenly distributed throughout


So:

A) A chocolate chip cookie: heterogenous mixture- the ingredients are not evenly distributed

B) water: depends distilled water is pure, whereas tap water would be a homogenous mixture

C) vodka: pure

D) a pure gold coin: pure
