  • 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. 'from now' ex. 7 years hence= 7 years from now

2. The sum of the lengths of all the sides of a polygon

3. Two lines meeting to form right angles

4. A Greek letter used to represent the relationship between the radius of a circle and its circumference and area.

5. A little number placed towards the upper right of a big number. the coefficient (big number) is multiplied by itself that many times.

6. The mathematical chance of something happening. can be expressed as a fraction - ratio - decimal - or percent.

7. A three sided polygon. the angles of a triangle total 180 degrees

8. With two fractions expressed as an inequality - to multiply the numerator of one fraction times the denominator of the other

9. The product of two or more whole numbers. 40 is this of 5 because 58=40. therefore 40 is also this of 8

10. A number or group of numbers represented by a letter or symbol. the value can vary depending on the mathematical relationship defined for it

11. Including the two extremes. the integers from 1 to 5 inclusive are 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - and 5.

12. A rectangular solid with six square sides or faces. also - a number raised to the third power

13. Number that are multiplied together. the ones for 6 are 1 - 2 - 3 - and 6.

14. The symbol (v) that tells you to find the square root of a number

15. Lines in the same plane that never meet

16. Comparison of two or more numbers - expressed in lowest terms

17. A quadrilateral that has four 90 degree angles

18. An arithmetic or algebraic expression that has some value on the left and some value on the right

19. The point equidistant from the ends of a line

20. The number you get when you add two or more numbers

21. A number whose only positive whole number facotrs are 1 and itself.

22. A unit of measure used to describe the size of an angle or part of a circle. a complete circle has 360 degrees

23. The number you get when you add a group of numbers and then divide by how many there are. also called an arithmetic mean

24. The digit all the way on the right of a number

25. A quadrilateral that has four 90 degree angles and four equal sides. also - a number raised to the second power.

26. The line connecting the vertices of two opposite angles of a quadrilateral.

27. The 'length' of a circle - measured from one point then all the way back to that point

28. In a right triangle - the longest side (the side opposite the right angle)

29. Two angles containing a total of 90 degrees

30. A four-sided polygon. the angles total 360 degrees.

31. Two triangles with exactly the same three angles. Similar triangles do not have to be the same size.

32. A triangle having at least two equal sides and two equal angles

33. The number left over after you've divided one number into another number

34. A quadrilateral whose opposite sides are both parallel and equal in length and whose opposite angles are equal

35. An angle whose measure is more than 90 degrees and less than 180 degrees

36. The place where the x axis frosses the y axis. usually referred to as the point (0 -0)

37. A solid whose base and top are identical parallel circles. unless otherwise stated - sides are always perpendicular to bases

38. The number you get when you subtract one number from another.

39. The amount of space contained in - or occupied by - a solid figure. expressed in in cubic units.

40. 'in the same order'

41. The bottom of a fraction

42. Two angles sharing one common side and a common vertex

43. An integer

44. The number you get when you divide one number into another number

45. A 5 sided polygon

46. The middle number in a group

47. The longest line you can draw from one point in a circle to another (the longest chord). The diameter is two times the length of the radius

48. A half-circle

49. A triangle that contains a 90 degree angle

50. The line perpendicular to the base of a polygon - or the length of that line.
