# 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. 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**

**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)**

**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)**

**39. equations that have the same solution**

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

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