Given that a triangle can have at most one angle measuring more than 90 degrees, which of the following statements must be true?

A) A quadrilateral can have at most one angle measuring more than 90 degrees.

B) A triangle can have at most one angle measuring less than 90 degrees.

C) A scalene triangle can have at most one angle measuring more than 90 degrees (Correct Answer)

D) None of the above

Explanation:

Because a scalene triangle is a special type of triangle, then it must have the same attributes as any other triangle. It must have no more than one angle measuring more than 90 degrees.

The chairs in the front half of the school auditorium are arranged in 9 rows of 20. The chairs in the back half are arranged in 5 rows of 25. Which expression could be used to find how many chairs are set up in the auditorium altogether?

A) 9 + 20 + 5 + 25

B) 9 x 20 x 5 x 25

C) 9 x 20 + 5 x 25 (Correct Answer)

D) (9 + 5) x (20 + 25)

Explanation:

The number of chairs in the front of the auditorium can be expressed as 9 x 20. The number of chairs in the back of the auditorium can be expressed as 5 x 25. In total, the number of chairs is the sum of these two expressions: 9 x 20 + 5 x 25.

Which of the following equations could be used to calculate the volume of this rectangular prism?

A) V = 2 + 2 + 6

B) V = (2 + 2) x 6

C) V = (2 x 2) x 6 (Correct Answer)

D) V = (2 x 2) + 6

Explanation:

The volume of a rectangular prism can be found by multiplying its three dimensions. For this figure, V = l x w x h = 2 x 2 x 6. By applying the Associative Property to group the factors, V = (2 x 2) x 6.

How many 4 inch long pieces of wood could be cut from a board

that is 2 yards long?

A) 18 pieces (Correct Answer)

B) 24 pieces

C) 12 pieces

Which of the following comparison statements is true?

A) 3.909 = 3.990

B) 3.099 > 3.99

C) 3.990 = 3.99 (Correct Answer)

D) 3.09 < 3.009
Explanation:

3.990 (three and 990 thousandths) is equal to 3.99 (three and 99 hundredths). The fraction 990/1000 is

equivalent to the fraction 99/100, so the decimal representations are also equivalent.

Find the product.

6.8 x 0.5

A) 0.034

B) 0.34

C) 3.4 (Correct Answer)

D) 34.0

Explanation:

Using the standard multiplication process, 68 times 5 is found to be 340. There are two decimal places

involved in the expression (one in each factor), so the decimal point is moved two places to the left in

our product. The final answer is 3.40 (or 3.4).

Evaluate this expression when h = 5:

{102 – [h x (2 + 7) + 3 x (21 – h)]} ÷ 3

A) 3 (Correct Answer)

B) 9

C) 15

D) 35

Explanation:

Follow these steps to evaluate the expression:

{102 – [h x (2 + 7) + 3 x (21 – h)]} ÷ 3

Replace every h with the value 5. The new expression is {102 – [5 x (2 + 7) + 3 x (21 – 5)]} ÷ 3 = {102 – [5 x 9 + 3 x 16]} ÷ 3 = {102 – [45 + 48]} ÷ 3 = {102 – 93} ÷ 3 = 9 ÷ 3 = 3

Two sequences of numbers are created. They both start from 0.

The first sequence follows the pattern rule “Add 2”. The second

follows the pattern rule “Add 6”. Which of the following statements

is true?

A) Each number in the second sequence is 4 more than the

corresponding number in the first sequence.

B) Each number in the second sequence is 6 times as much as the

corresponding number in the first sequence.

C) Each number in the second sequence is 3 times as much as the

corresponding number in the first sequence. (Correct Answer)

D) Each number in the second sequence is double the corresponding

number in the first sequence.

Explanation:

The sequences would look like this:

First: 0, 2, 4, 6, 8, …; Second 0, 6, 12, 18, 24, . . . Matching up the corresponding elements

yields the pairs (0, 0), (2, 6), (4, 12), (6, 18), (8, 24), . . . The second element in each pair is

three times as much as the first element.

A grocery store scale is used to weigh a bag of vegetables. The scale

shows “13.456 oz”. What is this value rounded to the nearest tenth

of an ounce?

A) 13.4 oz

B) 13.5 oz (Correct Answer)

C) 13.45 oz

D) 13.46 oz

Explanation:

The tenths place is the decimal place immediately to the right of the decimal point. To round to the nearest tenth, use the hundredths digit.

In this number, the hundredths digit is a 5. Therefore, the tenths digit will round up to a 5. The rounded number is 13.5 oz.

**Which of the following expressions would have a value that is triple the**

value of the expression shown here?

**(88 + 17) ÷ 6 + 9**

A) (88 + 17) ÷ 6 + 9 x 3

B) 3 x (88 + 17) ÷ 6 + 9

C) 3 x [(88 + 17) ÷ 6 + 9] (Correct Answer)

D) 3 x 88 + 17 ÷ 6 + 9

**Explanation:**

In order for the new expression to have a value that is triple the value of the original expression, the entire original expression has to be multiplied by 3. The only answer choice that works is the third choice. The other choices only triple part of the original expression, not the entire value.
