Question 1 of 35
1. Question
1 pointsThe dimensions of Box B, shown below, are twice the length of the corresponding dimensions on Box A (not shown).
Correct
Incorrect
Since the dimensions of Box A are half of the dimensions of Box B, the side lengths must be 3, 2, and 1.5. Next, find the volumes of the two
boxes. Use the formula V = lwh. The volume of Box B is 72, and the volume of Box A is 9. 72 is 8 times larger than 9. 
Question 2 of 35
2. Question
1 pointsAt the end of baseball season, 5% of the children enrolled in a local youth baseball program will be chosen to play in the state tournament. If 12 children will be chosen to play in the tournament, how many children are enrolled in the
program?Correct
Incorrect
Set up a proportion: 5/100 = 12/x , where x is the number of children enrolled in the program. 12 × 100 = 1,200, and 1,200 ÷ 5 = 240.

Question 3 of 35
3. Question
1 pointsA bag contains 12 red, 3 blue, 6 green, and 4 yellow marbles. If a marble is drawn from the bag at random, what is the probability that the marble will be either blue or yellow?
Correct
Incorrect
Add the number of marbles to get the total number in the bag; 12 + 3 + 6 + 4 = 25. Therefore, 25 is the number of possible outcomes.
Seven marbles are either blue or yellow. Seven is the number of favorable outcomes (7/25) x (4/4) =28/100 =28% 
Question 4 of 35
4. Question
1 pointsPatricia wants to order business cards. A printing company determines the cost (C) to the customer using the following function, where b = the number of boxes of cards and n = number of ink colors.
C = $25.60b + $14.00b(n − 1) If Patricia orders 4 boxes of cards printed in 3 colors, how much will the cards cost?Correct
Incorrect
Substitute 4 for b and 3 for n into the function. Then, solve the equation.
C = $25.60(4) + $14(4)(3 − 1)
= $102.40 + $112.00
= $214.40

Incorrect
Set up the proportion and solve: x = the number of miles between the two landmarks.

Question 7 of 35
7. Question
1 pointsWhich of the following is a graph of the inequality −2 ≤ x < 4?
Correct
Incorrect
Separate the two inequalities into two inequalities, x < 4 and −2 = x. Choice d is the only graph that represents the inequalities. There must be an open circle to represent that the 4 is not included and a shaded circle to represent that the −2 is included.

Question 8 of 35
8. Question
1 pointsQuestions 8 and 9 are based on the following figure.
Lines A and B are parallel.
What is the measure of ∠4?
Correct
Incorrect
Angle 4 and the angle measuring 50° are corresponding angles. Therefore,m∠4 = 50°

Question 9 of 35
9. Question
1 pointsQuestions 8 and 9 are based on the following figure.
Lines A and B are parallel.
What is the value of x?
Correct
Incorrect
Angle 3 and the angle measuring 104° are supplementary; therefore,m∠3 = 180 − 104 = 76. As established in the previous problem, angle 4
and the angle measuring 50° are corresponding angles, so m∠4 = 50°. Angle 3, angle 4, and x are the interior angles of a triangle, so they equal 180°; 50 + 76 + x = 180, and so x = 54°. 
Question 10 of 35
10. Question
1 pointsOn a coordinate plane, a vertical line is drawn through the point (−3,4). On the same plane, a horizontal line is drawn through the point (2,−1). At what point on the plane will the two lines intersect?
 You may have to answer on the coordinate grid (screen), in this case you can type the value below
Correct
Incorrect
The vertical line is parallel to the yaxis, and all of its points have the xcoordinate −3. The horizontal line is parallel to the xaxis, and all of its points have the ycoordinate −1. Therefore, the coordinates are −3 and −1.

1 pointsWhat was Edmundo’s mean score for a round of golf in August if his scores for each round were 78, 86, 82, 81, 82, and 77?
Correct
Incorrect
Mean = average. Add the scores and divide by the number of scores. 78 + 86 + 82 + 81 + 82 + 77 = 486 => 486 ÷ 6 = 81

Question 12 of 35
12. Question
1 pointsIn quadrilateral ABCD, side AB is parallel to side CD. Sides AD and BC are not parallel. What is the area of the figure to the nearest square centimeter?
Correct
Incorrect
Quadrilateral ABCD is a trapezoid because it has one pair of parallel sides. The bases are the parallel sides, AB and CD. The height is 2.5 cm.
Use the formula for the area of a trapezoid. 
Question 13 of 35
13. Question
1 pointsA display of canned yams has a sign that reads “5 cans for $3.” At the same rate, how much would the store charge, to the nearest whole cent, for 8 cans?
Correct
Incorrect
Set up the proportion 5/3 = 8/x , where x is the cost of 8 cans of yams; 3 × 8 = 24, and 24 ÷ 5 = $4.80.

Question 14 of 35
14. Question
1 pointsA plastic pipe, 5 feet 9 inches long, is cut into three equal pieces. Assuming no waste when the cuts are made, what is the length of each piece?
Correct
Incorrect
5 ft. 9 in. = 69 inches. Divide by 3: 69 ÷ 3 = 23 inches. Convert feet to inches, 23 in. = 1 ft. 11 in.

Question 15 of 35
15. Question
1 pointsThe Wrights plan to carpet their bedroom and the adjoining hallway as shown in the diagram. What is the area of the bedroom and hallway in square feet?
Correct
Incorrect
Think of the space as two rectangles: 21 ft. by 14 ft. and 10 ft. by 7 ft. (You can find the length of the missing side of the smaller rectangle by subtracting: 24 − 14 = 10.) Use the formula A = lw to find the area of each rectangle, and then combine to find the total area of the floor to be carpeted: 21 × 14 = 294, and 7 × 10 = 70. Add the areas of the two rectangles: 294 + 70 = 364, so the Wrights will need to buy 364 square feet of carpeting.

Question 16 of 35
16. Question
1 pointsOne number is 12 more than 3 times another number. The sum of the 2 numbers is −20. What are the numbers?
Correct
Incorrect
x = one number and 3x + 12 = the other number,
for the equation:
x + 3x + 12 = − 20
4x + 12 = −20
4x = −32
x = −8
3(−8) + 12 = −12
