# 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 number that can not be written a/b**

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

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

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

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

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

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

**13. What should occur in a probability experiment...an experiment is not actually done**

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

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

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

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

**18. An equation that shows a relationship among two or more quantities**

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

**20. A ratio that compares two quantities measured in different units**

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

**22. The bottom of a triangle**

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

**30. Consists of numbers and operations**

**31. A rate that has a denominator of 1**

**32. The x-value in a function**

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

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

**36. Is the number that is repeatedly multiplied in a power**

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

**38. Changing the grouping of terms will not change the sum - (a + b) + c = a + (b + c)**

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

**45. one of a pair of numbers whose product is 1: the reciprocal of 2/3 is 3/2**

**46. Is the difference of the greatest value and the least value in a set of data.**
