Question 1 of 35
1. Question
1 pointsIf 1 dollar is worth x French francs, what is the value, in dollars, of y French francs?
Correct
Incorrect
you don’t see that you need to divide y by x, set up a proportion. Let z = number of dollars needed to purchase y francs.

Question 2 of 35
2. Question
1 pointsEvaluate y ²4x − y) if y = −2 and x = 8.
Correct
Incorrect
Replace the variables with their given values. (−2)²(32 − [−2]) = 4(34) = 136

Question 3 of 35
3. Question
1 pointsOn a road map, 1/4 inch represents 8 miles of actual road distance. The towns of Alton and Waverly are represented by points 2 (1/8) inches apart on the map. What is the actual distance, in miles, between Alton and Waverly?
Correct
Incorrect
Since 1/4 in. represents 8 mi, 1 in. represents 4 × 8 = 32 mi., and 2 in. represents 2 × 32 = 64 mi., 1/8 in. represents 4 mi. Then 2 (1/8) in. represent 64 + 4 = 68 mi

Question 4 of 35
4. Question
1 pointsWhat is the area, in square graph units, of the triangle?
Correct
Incorrect
Use the formula for the area of a triangle. A = ½ bh =>½ (4) (8) = 16

Question 5 of 35
5. Question
1 pointsAt a certain time of day, a man 6 feet tall casts a shadow 4 feet in length. At the same time, a church steeple casts a shadow 28 feet in length. How high, in feet, is the church steeple?
Correct
Incorrect
Let x = height of steeple. Set up proportion: (height of the object / length of shadow): x/28 = 6/4
4x = 6(28) = 168 x = 168 ÷ 4 = 42 ft. 
Question 6 of 35
6. Question
1 pointsQuestions 6 through 8 are based on the following information.
A 3footwide walkway is built around a swimming pool that is 20 feet by 30 feet, as shown in the following figure.
In order to determine how much flagstone to buy, the homeowner needs to know the total area, in square feet, of the walkway. Which of the following expressions represents this area?
Correct
Incorrect
As you can see from the figure, to find the area of the walkway, you need to subtract the area of the inner rectangle, (20)(30) sq. ft., from the area of the outer rectangle, (26)(36) sq. ft.: (26)(36) − (20)(30) sq. ft.

Question 7 of 35
7. Question
1 pointsQuestions 6 through 8 are based on the following information.
A 3footwide walkway is built around a swimming pool that is 20 feet by 30 feet, as shown in the following figure.
If the depth of the pool is 6 feet, what volume of water, in cubic feet, is needed to fill the pool?
Correct
Incorrect
Since the average depth of the pool is 6 ft., the water forms a rectangular solid with dimensions 30 by 20 by 6. The volume of water is the product of these three numbers: (30)(20)(6) = 3,600 ft.³

Question 8 of 35
8. Question
1 pointsQuestions 6 through 8 are based on the following information.
A 3footwide walkway is built around a swimming pool that is 20 feet by 30 feet, as shown in the following figure.
What is the total area, in square feet, of the pool and the walkway?
Correct
Incorrect
Taken together, the pool and the walkway form a rectangle with dimensions 36 by 26. The total area is the product of these numbers: (36)(26) = 936 sq. ft.

Question 9 of 35
9. Question
1 pointsEvaluate (6 × 10^{5}) ÷ (4 × 10^{3}).
Correct
Incorrect
6 × 10^{5} = 600,000
4 × 10^{5} = 4,000
600,000 ÷ 4,000 = 600 ÷ 4 = 150 
Question 10 of 35
10. Question
1 pointsA house and a lot cost $120,000. If the house cost three times as much as the lot, how much did the house cost?
Correct
Incorrect
Let x = cost of lot and 3x = cost of house.
x + 3x = 120,000
4x = 120,000
x = 120,000 ÷ 4 = 30,000
3x = 3(30,000) = $90,000 
Question 11 of 35
11. Question
1 pointsJoan borrowed $1,300 to buy tools for her job as an auto mechanic. The loan is for one year and six months at 9% simple interest. Which of the following expressions could be used to find the amount she will pay back at the end of the loan period?
Correct
Incorrect
Find the interest by multiplying the amount borrowed ($1,300) by the time period in years (1.5) by the interest expressed as a decimal (0.09). To find the amount paid back, the amount borrowed must be added to the interest. $1,300 + ($1,300 × 0.09 × 1.5)

Question 12 of 35
12. Question
1 pointsNorm borrows $8,000 for five years to make improvements to his home office. If the simple interest rate is 13%, how much will he pay in interest?

Try −5 for x in each equation. Only option e is true when −5 is substituted for x.
12x = −60
12(−5) = −60
−60 = −60 
Question 14 of 35
14. Question
1 pointsMarc had $572.18 in his checking account. After writing a check, he had $434.68. Which of the following equations could be used to find the amount of the check (c)?

Let x = the price of an adult’s ticket and x − $6 = the price of a child’s ticket. In the problem, the cost of 2 adults’ tickets and 4 children’s tickets is $48.Write and solve an equation:
2x + 4(x − 6) = $48
2x + 4x − $24 = $48
6x − $24 = $48
6x = $72
x = $12

Question 28 of 35
28. Question
1 pointsO is the center of the circle, and the measure of ∠O is 70°. What is the measure of ∠OAB?
Correct
Incorrect
Let x = m∠OAB. OA = OB since radii of the same circle have equal measures. Therefore, m∠OAB = m∠OBA.
x + x + 70 = 180
2x + 70 = 180
2x = 180 − 70 = 110
x = 110 ÷ 2 = 55 
Question 29 of 35
29. Question
1 pointsA bookcase has 3 large shelves and 4 small shelves. Each large shelf contains 8 more books than each small shelf. If the bookcase contains 297 books, how many books does each small shelf hold?
Correct
Incorrect
Let x = number of books on the small shelf, and x + 8 = number of books on the large shelf. Then, 4x = number of books on 4 small shelves,
and 3(x + 8) = number of books on 3 large shelves.
4x + 3(x + 8) = 297
4x + 3x + 24 = 297
7x + 24 = 297
7x = 297 − 24
7x = 273 ÷ 7 = 39
