# 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 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**
