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. 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)

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

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)
