ALEKS Math Practice Test Answers and Explanations

1- The answer is 38
\($7×8=$56\), Petrol use: \(8×1.5=12\) liters
Petrol cost: \(12×$1.5=$18\). Money earned: \($56-$18=$38\)

2- The answer is 22.016
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

3- The answer is 340
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 \(\frac{18,000-24,000}{24,000}×100\%=25\%\)

5- The answer is 490
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 right. \(1.78+3.045+2.007=6.832\)

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: \($85-$45=$40\)

15- The answer is 9
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. \(x = 9\)

16- The answer is 2000
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

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

18- The answer is 72
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: \(f(3x)=7(3x)+2(1-(3x))=21x+2-6x=15x+2\)

23- The answer is 17
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 complimentary angles identify of trigonometric function. \(cos⁡A=cos⁡(90-C)\), Then: \(cos⁡A=sin⁡C\)
For complementary angles, sin of one angle is equal to cos of the other angle. \(cos⁡A=\frac{3}{5}\)

25- The answer is \(y=x^2-4x+1\)
In order to figure out what the equation of the graph is, fist 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 \(-\frac{x}{3}=-\frac{2}{3}\).

27- The answer is 12
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 \(49\sqrt{3}\)
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 right triangle \(30^\circ-60^\circ- 90^\circ\) is provided in the following triangle: In this triangle, the opposite side of 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 = \(\frac{1}{2}\) \(7\sqrt{3}×14=49\sqrt{3}\)

29- The answer is 40
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 \(\sqrt{17}\)
