## ALEKS Math Practice Test Answers and Explanations

$$7×8=56$$, Petrol use: $$8×1.5=12$$ liters
Petrol cost: $$12×1.5=18$$. Money earned: $$56-18=38$$

First, multiply the tenths place of 4.3 by 5.12. The result is 1.536. Next, multiply 4 by 5.12 which results in 20.48. The sum of these two numbers is: 1.536 + 20.48 = 22.016

Dividing 85 by $$25\%$$, which is equivalent to 0.25, gives 340. Therefore, $$25\%$$ of 340 is 85.

4- The answer is $$25\%$$
Use this formula: Percent of Change $$=\frac{New \space Value-Old \space Value}{Old \space Value} ×100\%$$
$$\frac{24,000-32,000}{32,000}×100\%=25\%$$ and $$\frac{18,000-24,000}{24,000}×100\%=25\%$$

Let x be the original price. If the price of the sofa is decreased by $$13\%$$ to $426.3, then: $$87\%$$ of $$x=426.3 ⇒ 0.87x=426.3 ⇒ x=426.3÷0.87=490$$ 6- The answer is $$15\%$$ The percent of girls playing tennis is: $$30\% × 50\% = 0.30 × 0.50 = 0.15= 15 \%$$ 7- The answer is $$200\%$$ Write the equation and solve for B: $$0.80 A = 0.40 B$$, divide both sides by 0.40, then: $$\frac{0.80}{0.40}A=B$$, therefore: $$B = 2A$$, and B is 2 times of A or it’s $$200\%$$ of A. 8- The answer is 6 hours and 30 minutes Use distance formula: Distance = Rate × time ⇒ 390 = 60 × T, divide both sides by 60⇒ $$\frac{390}{60}$$ = T ⇒ T = 6.5 hours. Change hours to minutes for the decimal part. 0.5 hours = 0.5 × 60 = 30 minutes. 9- The answer is $$120\%$$ Use percent formula: $$part = \frac{percent}{100}×whole$$ , $$84=\frac{percent}{100}×70 ⇒ 84=\frac{percent ×70}{100} ⇒$$, multiply both sides by 100 ⇒ 8400 = percent × 70, divide both sides by 70. 120 = percent 10- The answer is 6.832 To add decimal numbers, line them up and add from the right. $$1.78+3.045+2.007=6.832$$ ## The Absolute Best Book to Ace the ALEKS Math Test 11- The answer is 17 Use Pythagorean Theorem: $$a^2+b^2=c^2, 82 + 152 = c^2 ⇒ 64+225=c^2 ⇒ 289=c^2⇒c=17$$ 12- The answer is 40 The sum of supplement angles is 180. Let $$x$$ be that angle. Therefore, $$x = \frac{2}{9}×180, x = 40$$ 13- The answer is 6:7 The average speed of john is: $$210÷7=30$$ km The average speed of Alice is: $$175÷5=35$$ km Write the ratio and simplify. $$30: 35 ⇒ 6: 7$$ 14- The answer is$40
$$8.5×10=85$$, Petrol use: $$10×3=30$$ liters, Petrol cost: $$30×1.5=45$$
Money earned: $$85-45=40$$

Let $$x$$ be the number. Write the equation and solve for $$x$$.
$$(45 – x) ÷ x = 4$$
Multiply both sides by $$x$$.
$$(45 – x) = 4x$$, then add $$x$$ both sides. $$45 = 5x$$, now divide both sides by 5. $$x = 9$$

If the length of the box is 40, then the width of the box is one-fourth of it, 10, and the height of the box is 5 (one second of the width). The volume of the box is: V = lwh = (40) (10) (5) = 2000

To find the number of possible outfit combinations, multiply the number of options for each factor: 4 × 5 × 7 = 140

The area of the trapezoid is: $$Are=\frac{1}{2} h(b_1+b_2 )=\frac{1}{2}(x)(24+16)=300→20x=300→x=15$$⇒ $$z=\sqrt{8^2+15^2}=\sqrt{64+225}=\sqrt{289}=17$$
The perimeter of the trapezoid is: $$16+8+17+16+15=72$$

19- The answer is $$\frac{8}{25}$$
There are 25 integers from 5 to 30. Set of numbers that are not composite between 5 and 30 is: $${ 5,7,11,13,17,19,23,29}$$⇒ 8 integers are not composite. Probability of not selecting a composite number is:
$$Probability= \frac{number \space of \space desired \space outcomes}{number \space of \space total \space outcomes}= \frac{8}{25}$$

20- The answer is 26 miles
Use the information provided in the question to draw the shape.
Use Pythagorean Theorem:

$$a^2+ b^2=c^2 , 24^2+ 10^2=c^2 ⇒ 576+100= c^2 ⇒ 676=c^2 ⇒ c=26$$

21- The answers are 11 and 13.5
You can find the possible values of and b in $$(ax+3)(bx-4)$$ by using the given equation $$a+b=5$$ and finding another equation that relates the variables a and b. Since $$(ax+3)(bx-4)=-6x^2+2cx+10$$, expand the left side of the equation to obtain
$$abx^2-4ax+3bx-12=-6x^2+2cx+10$$
Since ab is the coefficient of $$x^2$$ on the left side of the equation and 10 is the coefficient of $$x^2$$ on the right side of the equation, it must be true that $$ab=-6$$
The coefficient of $$x$$ on the left side is $$3b-4a$$ and the coefficient of $$x$$ in the right side is $$2c$$. Then: $$\frac{3b-4a}{2}=c, a+b=5$$, then: $$a=5-b$$
Now, plug in the value of $$a$$ in the equation $$ab=-6$$. Then: $$ab=-6→(5-b)b=-6→5b-b^2=-6$$⇒ Add $$-5b+b^2$$ both sides. Then: $$b^2-5b-6=0$$
Solve for $$b$$ using the factoring method. $$b^2-5b-6=0→(b-6)(b+1)=0$$
Thus, either $$b=6$$ and $$a =-1$$, or $$b =-1$$ and $$a =6$$. If $$b =6$$ and $$a =-1$$, then
$$c=\frac{3b-4a}{2}=\frac{3(6)-4(-1)}{2}=11$$. If $$b=-1$$ and $$a =6$$, then, $$c=\frac{3b-4a }{2}=\frac{3(-1)-4(6)}{2}=\frac{27}{2}=13.5→c=13.5$$. Therefore, the two possible values for $$c$$ are 11 and 13.5.

22- The answer is $$15x+2$$
If $$f(x)=7x+2(1-x)$$, then find $$f(3x)$$ by substituting $$3x$$ for every $$x$$ in the function. This gives: $$f(3x)=7(3x)+2(1-(3x))$$ ⇒ It simplifies to: $$f(3x)=7(3x)+2(1-(3x))=21x+2-6x=15x+2$$

The input value is 5. Then: $$x=-4⇒ f(x)=2x^2+4x+1→f(-4)=2(-4)^2+4(-4)+1=17$$

24- The answer is $$cos⁡A=\frac{3}{5}$$
To solve for $$cos⁡A$$ first identify what is known.
The question states that ∆ABC is a right triangle whose $$n∠B=90\circ$$ and $$sin⁡C=\frac{3}{5}$$.
It is important to recall that any triangle has a sum of interior angles that equals 180 degrees. Therefore, to calculate $$cos⁡A$$ use the complementary angles identify of a trigonometric function. $$cos⁡A=cos⁡(90-C)$$, Then: $$cos⁡A=sin⁡C$$
For complementary angles, the sin of one angle is equal to the cos of the other angle. $$cos⁡A=\frac{3}{5}$$

25- The answer is $$y=x^2-4x+1$$
To figure out what the equation of the graph is, first find the vertex. From the graph, we can determine that the vertex is at $$(2,-3)$$.
We can use vertex form to solve for the equation of this graph.
Recall vertex form, $$y=a(x-h)^2+k$$, where h is the x coordinate of the vertex, and k is the y coordinate of the vertex. Plugging in our values, you get $$y=a(x-2)^2-3$$
To solve for a, we need to pick a point on the graph and plug it into the equation.
Let’s pick $$(4,1)$$, $$1=a(4-2)^2-3$$, $$1=a(2)^2-3$$, $$1=4a-3$$, $$a=1$$⇒ Now the equation is : $$y=(x-2)^2-3$$, Let’s expand this, $$y=(x^2-4x+4)-3$$, $$y=x^2-4x+1$$

26- The answer is $$-\frac{2}{3}$$
Multiplying each side of $$\frac{7}{x}=\frac{21}{x+4} by x(x+4)$$ gives $$7(x+4)=21x$$, divide two side by 7.
$$x+4=3x$$ or $$x=2$$. Therefore, the value of $$-\frac{x}{3}=-\frac{2}{3}$$.

It is given that $$g(6)=8$$. Therefore, to find the value of $$f(g(6))$$, then $$f(g(6))=f(8)=12$$

28- The answer is $$49\sqrt{3}$$
The area of the triangle is: $$\frac{1}{2}$$ AD × BC and AD is perpendicular to BC. Triangle ADC is a $$30^\circ-60^\circ- 90^\circ$$ right triangle. The relationship among all sides of the right triangle $$30^\circ-60^\circ- 90^\circ$$ is provided in the following triangle: In this triangle, the opposite side of the 30° angle is half of the hypotenuse. And the opposite side of $$60^\circ$$ is opposite of $$30^circ × \sqrt{3}$$

CD = 7, then AD = $$7 × \sqrt{3}$$
Area of the triangle ABC is: $$\frac{1}{2}$$ AD×BC = $$\frac{1}{2}$$ $$7\sqrt{3}×14=49\sqrt{3}$$

It is given that $$g(4)=10$$. Therefore, to find the value of $$f(g(4))$$, substitute 10 for $$g(4)$$.
$$f(g(4))=f(10)=40$$.

30- The answer is $$\sqrt{17}$$
The equation of a circle with center (h, k) and radius r is $$(x-h)^2+(y-k)^2=r^2$$. To put the equation $$x^2+y^2-6x+4y=4$$ in this form, complete the square as follows:
$$x^2+y^2-6x+4y=4, (x^2-6x)+(y^2+4y)=4$$
$$(x^2-6x+9)-9+(y^2+4y+4)-4=4, (x-6)^2+(y+4)^2=17$$
Therefore, the radius of the circle is $$\sqrt{17}$$
