Subjects : clep, math
Instructions:
  • Answer 45 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. Approximating a given number to a specified number of digits






2. A^0 = 1 (if a doesn't = 0)






3. The equation a b is equivalent to a / c = b / c (if c doesn't = 0).






4. The factors of a number that are prime numbers - 2 - 3 - 5 - 7 - 11 - ... - numbers that divides into another exactly and have no factors of their own except one and itself






5. The equation a = b is equivalent to a - c = b - c.






6. A^1 a






7. A > b means that a is to the right of b on a number line.






8. States that changing the grouping of the addends does not change the sum






9. The number by which a dividend is divided - the number you divide by - the number that divides the dividend (second in the math sentence or outside the 'house')






10. A / a = 1 (if a doesn't = 0) - a / 1 = a - a number divided by itself is 1 ; a number divided by 1 is the same number ; - If equal quantities are divided by equal quantities - the quotients are equal. If AB=DE then AC is greater than AB or BC. - a n






11. A counting number greater than 1 that is not prime - an integer that is divisible without remainder by at least one positive integer other than itself and one - A whole number greater than 1 that has more than 2 factors.






12. Ab=ba - Changing the order of the factors does not change the product; for example 10 x 9 = 9 x 10; a b = b a






13. 0 x a = 0 = a x 0 - anything multiplied by zero is equal to zero - For every real number n - n*0=0.






14. The distance around an object In the case of a polygon - the perimeter is the sum of the length of all sides - a line enclosing a plane areas






15. The multiple by which an initial change in aggregate spending will alter total expenditure after an infinite number of spending cycles;






16. A flat geometric region with many sides






17. First number in a multiplication sentence - the number in a multiplication problem that represents the number of objects in each (equal sized) group - A quanity by which a given number (the multiplicand) is to be multiplied.






18. The result of an addition






19. 10 - 100 - 1000 - etc. - every counting number multiplied by 10; 10 -20 -30 - and so on - What unit the Metric System based on?






20. A(b+c)=ab+ac - a property indicating a special way in which multiplication is applied to addition of two or more numbers in which each term inside a set of parentheses can be multiplied by a factor outside the parentheses - such as a(b + c) = ab + ac






21. A quantity obtained by multiplication






22. A+0=a - 0 is the -






23. The number from which the subtrahend is subtracted






24. Parentheses & Exponents - Multiplication & Division - Addition & Subtraction






25. A + b = b + a - The order of addends can be changed & the sum remains the same. 3+7=7+3






26. The number that remains after subtraction - the answer to a subtraction problem

28. A sentence using an = sign - a mathematical statement that two expressions are equal - A mathematical sentence that contains an equals sign






29. 1 - any number times 1 is equal to itself according to what property - the number in a set which when any number n in the set is multiplied by - yields the given number.






30. Sentences using < or > - A mathematical sentence built from expressions using one or more of the symbols greater than - less than - greater than or equal to and/or less than or equal to






31. PEMDAS - the order in which operations in an expression to be evaluated are carried out. 1. parentheses 2. exponents 3. multiplication and divison 4. addition and subtraction






32. Read the problem. Select the unknown. Translate the problem. Use the rules studied to solve the problem. Verify the answer.

34. The number obtained by division - the ratio of two quantities to be divided - the result of dividing one number by another number






35. (ab)c = a(bc) - changing the grouping of factors will not change the product - (ab)c = a(bc) - Factors can be regrouped & the product remains the same.






36. A counting number having exactly two different factors - itself and 1 - an integer that has no integral factors but itself and 1 and - a whole number greater than 1 that has exactly two factors - itself and 1
