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

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

3. The sum of the values in a data set divided by the number of values in the set

4. A plane that is divided into four regions by a horizontal line called the x-axis and a vertical line called the y-axis - aka 'the Cartesian plane' after Ren

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

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

7. A number that has a whole number for a square root ex: 9 - 16 - 121

8. A way to figure out the total number of ways different events can occur. If there are a ways for one activity to occur - and b ways for a second activity to occur - then there are a * b ways for both to occur.

9. Is a number made of repeated factors

10. Number in front of a variable

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

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

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

14. The set of all the input (x-values) for a function

15. Consists of numbers - variables - and operations

16. Ratios that have the same value.

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

18. The order of the factors does not change the product a x b = b x a

19. A ratio whose denominator is 100

20. The sum of a number and zero is always that number.

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

22. A letter used to represent one or more numbers

23. Finding all the solutions of an equation

24. Number of favorable outcomes divided by total number of possible outcomes

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

26. The point in the exact middle of a circle

27. The bottom of a triangle

28. one of four sections into which the coordinate plane is divided

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

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

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

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

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

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

35. An expression that contains a square root

36. The amount of 3-dimensional space occupied by an object

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

38. To find the value of an expression

39. The perpendicular (90 degrees) distance from the base of a triangle to the opposite vertex

40. The ratio of the number of ways the event can occur to the number of ways the event cannot occur. Favorable over Unfavorable.

41. Consists of numbers and operations

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

43. The largest factor that two or more numbers have in common.

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

45. 3.1415.... is an irrational number resulting from the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter

46. A method of writing very large or very small numbers by using powers of 10

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

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

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

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