# CLEP College Algebra Vocab

**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**

**14. The sum of a number and its opposite is zero.**

**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.**

**27. To find the value of an expression**

**28. The y-value in a function**

**29. Terms that have identical variable parts raised to the same power**

**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**

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

**47. A**

**48. An equation that states that two ratios are equal - Ex: 1/2 = x/10**

**49. A comparison of two numbers by division**

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