CLEP College Algebra Vocab

Subjects : clep, math, algebra
  • Answer 50 questions in 15 minutes.
  • If you are not ready to take this test, you can study here.
  • Match each statement with the correct term.
  • Don't refresh. All questions and answers are randomly picked and ordered every time you load a test.

This is a study tool. The 3 wrong answers for each question are randomly chosen from answers to other questions. So, you might find at times the answers obvious, but you will see it re-enforces your understanding as you take the test each time.
1. A term that has no variable and does not change

2. A comparison of two numbers by division

3. The x-value in a function

4. probability based on what happens when an experiment is actually done

5. A diagram used to show the total number of possible outcomes in an experiment

6. In a sum - you can add terms in any order - a + b = b + a

7. A number that has more than two factors

8. Changing the grouping of terms will not change the sum - (a + b) + c = a + (b + c)

9. Changing the grouping of factors will not change the product - (ab)c = a(bc)

10. The steepness of a line on a graph - rise over run

11. In an expression are separated by addition and subtraction signs

12. Is the middle value in a data set where the numbers are ordered least to greatest

13. Fractions that have the same value and the same simplest form

14. A rate that has a denominator of 1

15. An event who's outcome does depend on the outcome of a previous event

16. A relation that assigns exactly one output value for each input value

17. A line segment from the center of a circle to any point on the circle (is also half the diameter)

18. The set of all the output (y-values) for a function

19. The least common multiple of the denominators of two or more fractions.

20. An equation whose answers are ordered pairs (x -y) and whose answers graph a straight line

21. A number that can not be written a/b

22. A number that can be written as a/b where a and b are integers - but b is not equal to 0.

23. Is a number made of repeated factors

24. Inequalities that have the same solution

25. A(b + c) = ab + ac - an + ac = a(b+ c)

26. A number written as the product of its prime factors

27. A
