# 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 distance around a circle.**

**2. The order in which operations in an expression to be evaluated are carried out. 1. parentheses 2. exponets 3. multiplication and divison 4. addition and subtraction**

**3. A term that has no variable and does not change**

**4. Is the set of all points that are an equal distance from a point called the center**

**5. A number that has more than two factors**

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

**7. The point where a graph crosses the x-axis**

**8. The least common multiple of the denominators of two or more fractions.**

**9. Consists of numbers - variables - and operations**

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

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

**12. The product of any number and one is that number.**

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

**14. A**

**15. The point where a graph crosses the y-axis**

**16. A decimal in which one or more digits repeat infinitely**

**17. Inequalities that have the same solution**

**18. 3.1415.... is an irrational number resulting from the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter**

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

**20. A ratio whose denominator is 100**

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

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

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

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

**25. 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.**

**26. A letter used to represent one or more numbers**

**27. When the GCF of the numerator and denominator is 1**

**28. 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**

**29. Is the amount paid for borrowing or lending money**

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

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

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

**33. A statement that compares two quantities using < - > - = -= - or ?**

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

**35. y = mx + b**

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

**37. To get a variable alone on one side of an equation or inequality in order to solve the equation or inequality**

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

**39. Number of favorable outcomes divided by total number of possible outcomes**

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

**41. Number in front of a variable**

**42. A number that can not be written a/b**

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

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

**45. Ratios that have the same value.**

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

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

**48. Changing the grouping of factors will not change the product - (ab)c = a(bc)**

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

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