CLEP College Algebra Vocab

Subjects : clep, math, algebra
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

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

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

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.

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
