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

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

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

4. Inequalities that have the same solution

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

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

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

8. The distance around a circle.

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

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

11. special polyhedron with faces that are all squares

12. The original amount of money loaned or borrowed

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

14. 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.

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

16. A mathematical sentence with an equal sign that shows that two expressions are equivalent

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

18. A comparison of two numbers by division

19. Number in front of a variable

20. The point where a graph crosses the y-axis

21. Fractions that have the same value and the same simplest form

22. Is the amount paid for borrowing or lending money

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

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

25. An expression that contains a square root

26. Consists of numbers and operations

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

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

29. To find the value of an expression

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

31. The product of any number and one is that number.

32. The x-value in a function

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

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

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

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

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

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

39. Ratios that have the same value.

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

41. A rate that has a denominator of 1

42. The point in the exact middle of a circle

43. y = mx + b

44. A number that has more than two factors

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

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

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

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

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

50. Consists of numbers - variables - and operations
