## Best **ASVAB** Math Prep Resource for 2020

## Answers:

1- **B**

Perimeter of a rectangle = \(2 × length + 2 × width\) =

\(2 × 90 + 2 × 30 = 180 + 60 = 240\)

2- **B**

\(Speed =\frac{distance}{time }\)

\(16.2=\frac{distance}{2.1}⇒ distance=16.2×2.1=34.02\)

Rounded to a whole number, the answer is \(34\).

3-** B**

Let’s review the choices provided and find their sum.

\(a. 20 × 6 = 120\)

\(b. 26 × 6 = 144\) ⇒ is greater than 120 and less than 180

\(c. 30 × 6 = 180\)

\(d. 34 × 6 = 204\)

Only choice b gives a number that is greater than 120 and less than 180.

4- **A**

\(120 – 12 = 108\)

\(\frac{108}{12} = 9\)

5- **C**

percent of change = \(\frac{change}{original \space number}\)

\(7.75 – 7.50 = 0.25\)

percent of change = \(\frac{0.25}{7.50}\) = 0.0333

\(⇒ 0.0333 × 100 = 3.33\%\)

6- **B**

Two candy bars costs 50¢ and a package of peanuts cost 75¢ and a can of cola costs 50¢. The total cost is: \( 50 + 75 + 50 = 175\)

175 is equal to 7 quarters. \(7 × 25 = 175\)

7- **C**

Every day the hour hand of a watch makes 2 complete rotation. Thus, it makes 16 complete rotations in 8 days.

\(2 × 8 = 16\)

8- **B**

\(30\% × 50 =\frac{30}{100} × 50 = 15 \)

The coupon has $15 value. Then, the selling price of the sweater is $35.

\(50 – 15 = 35\)

Add \(5\%\) tax, then:

\(\frac{5}{100} × 35 = 1.75 \) for tax

then:

\(35 + 1.75 = $36.75\)

9- **D**

Use FOIL (First, Out, In, Last) method.

\((x + 7)(x + 5) = x^2 + 5x + 7x + 35 = x^2 + 12x + 35\)

10- **D**

In scientific notation form, numbers are written with one whole number times 10 to the power of a whole number. Number 670,000 has 6 digits. Write the number and after the first digit put the decimal point. Then, multiply the number by 10 to the power of 5 (number of remaining digits). Then:

\(670,000 = 6.7 × 10^5\)

11- **C**

Perimeter of a triangle = side 1 + side 2 + side 3 \(= 25 + 25 + 25 = 75\)

12- **A**

From the choices provided, 36, 48 and 54 are divisible by 6. From these numbers, 54 is the biggest.

13- **A**

Oven 1 = 4 oven 2

If Oven 2 burns 3 then oven 1 burns 12 pizzas.\( 3 + 12 = 15\)

14- **C**

An obtuse angle is an angle of greater than \(90^\circ\) and less than \(180^\circ\).

15- **B**

5231.48245 rounded to the nearest tenth equals 5231.5

(Because 5231.48 is closer to 5,231.5 than 5,231.4)

16-A

Diameter = 16

then: Radius = 8

Area of a circle =\(πr^2\) ⇒ \(A = 3.14(8)^2 = 200.96\)

17- **A**

\(7! = 7 × 6 × 5 × 4 × 3 × 2 × 1\)

18- **C**

Let’s review the choices provided. Put the values of \(x\) and \(y\) in the equation.

A. \((1, 2) ⇒ x = 1 ⇒ y = 2\) This is true!

B. \((−2, −13) ⇒ x = -2 ⇒ y = -13\) This is true!

C. \((3, 18) ⇒ x = 3 ⇒ y = 12\) This is not true!

D. \((2, 7) ⇒ x = 2 ⇒ y = 7\) This is true!

19- **C**

Use distance formula:

\(d=\sqrt{((x_1-x_2)^2+(y_1-y_2)^2 )} = \sqrt{((1-(-2))^2+(3-7)^2 )}\)

\(\sqrt{(9+16)} = \sqrt{25} = 5\)

20- **B**

\((x^2 \space – \space 81 = 0 ⇒ x^2 = 81 )\) ⇒ \(x\) could be \(9\) or \(–9\).
