CLEP College Algebra Vocab

Subjects : clep, math, algebra
Instructions:
  • 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. The amount of 3-dimensional space occupied by an object






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






3. Is the value in a data set that occurs most often. If all values occur the same amount of times there is no mode for that set.






4. The product of any number and one is that number.






5. A model of an object in which the dimensions are in proportion to the actual dimensions of the object.






6. A whole number that has exactly two factors - 1 and itself.






7. The distance a number is from 0 on the number line - value of n is written l n l






8. A set of three positive integers that work in the pythagorean theorem






9. A rate that has a denominator of 1






10. The smallest multiple that two or more numbers have in common






11. A term that has no variable and does not change






12. A ratio that compares two quantities measured in different units






13. The sum of the lengths of the sides of a polygon

16. The distance around a circle.






17. An equation that shows a relationship among two or more quantities






18. Ratios that have the same value.






19. The total area of the 2-dimensional surfaces that make up a 3-dimensional object.






20. The number of square units needed to cover a flat surface






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






22. Is the difference of the greatest value and the least value in a set of data.






23. An event that is not affected by another event.






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






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






26. A pair of numbers - (x - y) - that indicate the position of a point on a coordinate plane.

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






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






32. An expression constructed from a set of terms by multiplying each term by a constant and adding the results.






33. The point where a graph crosses the x-axis






34. A mathematical notation indicating the number of times a quantity is multiplied by itself






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






36. A number that has more than two factors






37. Is a number made of repeated factors






38. The distance across a circle through its center (is also twice the radius)






39. operations that undo each other - such as addition and subtraction
