DAT Quantitative Reasoning Practice Test Answers and Explanations

1- Choice A is correct
Solve the system of equations by elimination method.
\(\begin{cases}2x+y=7\\4x-2y=18\end{cases}\)
\(\begin{cases}2(2x+y=7)\\4x-2y=18\end{cases}⇒\begin{cases}4x+2y= 14\\4x-2y=18\end{cases}\)⇒ add the equations
\(8x=32⇒x=4,2x+y=7⇒y=7-2(4)=7-8=-1\)

2- Choice C is correct.
100 times the number is 6.45. Let \(x\) be the number, then: \(100x=6.45\), \(x=\frac{6.45}{100}=0.0645\)

3- Choice C is correct
The area of the floor is: 6 cm \(×\) 32 cm = 192 cm, The number is tiles needed =\( 192 ÷ 12 = 16\)

4- Choice E is correct
The diagonal of the square is 12. Let \(x\) be the side.
Use Pythagorean Theorem: \(a^2+b^2=c^2\)
\(x^2 + x^2 = 12^2 ⇒ 2x^2=12^2 ⇒ 2x^2 = 144 ⇒ x^2 = 72 ⇒x= \sqrt{72}\)
The area of the square is: \(\sqrt{72} ×\sqrt{72}=72\)

5- Choice E is correct
\(x=26+136=162\)

6- Choice B is correct.
By definition, the sine of any acute angle is equal to the cosine of its complement.
Since, angle A and B are complementary angles, therefore: sin A = cos B

7- Choice E is correct
To find the discount, multiply the number by (\(100\%\) – rate of discount).
Therefore, for the first discount we get: \((D) (100\% – 15\%) = (D) (0.85) = 0.85 D\)
For increase of \(22\%\): \((0.85 D) (100\% + 22\%) = (0.85 D) (1.22) = 1.037 D = 103.7\%\) of \(D\)

8- Choice D is correct
If 14 balls are removed from the bag at random, there will be one ball in the bag. The probability of choosing a red ball is 1 out of 15. Therefore, the probability of not choosing a red ball is 14 out of 15 and the probability of having not a red ball after removing 14 balls is the same.

9- Choice D is correct
\(x\) and \(2z\) are colinear. \(y\) and \(3x\) are colinear. Therefore,
\(x+2z=y+3x\), subtract \(x\) from both sides,then, \(2z=y-2x\)

10- Choice C is correct
\(45\%\) of \(30\) equals to: \(0.45×30=13.5\), \(15\%\) of \(420\) equals to: \(0.15×420=63\)
\(45\%\) of \(30\) is added to \(15\%\) of \(420\): \(13.5+63=76.5\)

11- Choice C is correct
\(12\%\) of the volume of the solution is alcohol. Let \(x\) be the volume of the solution.
Then: \(12\%\) of \(x=48\) ml ⇒ \(0.12 x=48 ⇒ x=48÷0.12=400\)

12- Choice D is correct
Plug in each pair of number in the equation:
A. \((-3,2): 3(-3)-2(2)=-13\) Nope!
B. \((-1,2): 3(–1)-2(2)=-7\) Nope!
C. \((1,2): 3(1)-2(2)=-1\) Nope!
D. \((2,-1): 3(2)-2(-1)=8\) Bingo!
E. \((3,0): 3(3)-2(0)=9\) Nope!

13- Choice B is correct
The area of ∆BED is 21, then: \(\frac{6×AB}{2}=21→6×AB=42→AB=7\)
The area of ∆BDF is 32, then: \(\frac{4×BC}{2} =32→4×BC=64→BC=16\)
The perimeter of the rectangle is = \(2×(7+16)=46\)

14- Choice B is correct
\(|x+8|≤2→-2≤x+8≤2→-2-8≤x+8-8≤2-8→-10≤x≤-6\)

15- Choice D is correct
Use distance formula: Distance = Rate \(×\) time ⇒ 564 \(= 60 × \)T, divide both sides by 60. \(\frac{564}{60}\) = T ⇒ T = 9.4 hours. Change hours to minutes for the decimal part. 0.4 hours \(= 0.4 × 60 = 24\) minutes.

16- Choice B is correct
Write a proportion and solve for \(x⇒ \frac{3}{4}=\frac{x}{36} ⇒ 4x=3 ×36 ⇒ x=27\) ft

17- Choice D is correct
\(tanθ=\frac{opposite}{adjacent}\)
\(tanθ=\frac{8}{15}\)⇒ we have the following right triangle. Then
\(c=\sqrt{8^2+15^2}=\sqrt{64+225}=\sqrt{289}=17\)
\(cosθ=\frac{adjacent}{hypotenuse}=\frac{15}{17}\)

18- Choice C is correct
The percent of girls playing tennis is: \(65\%×20\%=0.65×0.20=0.13=13\%\)

19- Choice B is correct
Add the first 4 numbers. \(55+62+44+63=224\), To find the distance traveled in the next 4 hours, multiply the average by number of hours. Distance = Average × Rate \(=65×4=260\), Add both numbers. \(224+260=484\)

20- Choice D is correct
The question is this: 1.82 is what percent of 1.3? Use percent formula: \(part=\frac{percent}{100}×whole\)
\(1.82 = \frac{percent}{100} × 1.3 ⇒ 1.82=\frac{percent ×1.3}{100} ⇒182=percent×1.3 ⇒ percent=\frac{182}{1.3}= 140\)

21- Choice E is correct.
Solve for \(x ⇒ \frac{5x}{18}=\frac{x-2}{3}\)⇒ Multiply the second fraction by \(6⇒ \frac{5x}{18}=\frac{6(x-2)}{6×3}\)
Tow denominators are equal. Therefore, the numerators must be equal.
\(5x=6(x-2)=6x-12, x=12\)

22- Choice E is correct
The relationship among all sides of special right triangle
\(30^\circ -60^\circ- 90^\circ\) is provided in this triangle:

In this triangle, the opposite side of \(30^\circ\) angle is half of the hypotenuse.
Draw the shape of this question:
The latter is the hypotenuse. Therefore, the latter is 40 ft.

23- Choice D is correct
The weight of 14 meters of this rope is: \(14×732 \space g=10,248 \space g\)
\(1 \space kg = 1000 \space g\), therefore, \(10,248 \space g÷1000=10.248 \space kg\)

24- Choice E is correct
The slop of line A is: \(m=\frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1}=\frac{2-(-6)}{4-2}=\frac{8}{2}=4\)
Parallel lines have the same slope and only choice E \((y=4x)\) has slope of 4.

25- Choice E is correct
When points are reflected over \(y\)-axis, the value of \(y\) in the coordinates doesn’t change and the sign of \(x\) changes. Therefore, the coordinates of point B is (4, 5).

26- Choice C is correct
The area of trapezoid is: \(\frac{(9+12)}{2}×x =42→21x=84→x=4\), \(y=\sqrt{3^2+4^2}=5\)

30- Choice D is correct.
Let the number be \(x\). Then: \(12=4\%×x→12=0.04x\), Solve for \(x→x=\frac{12}{0.04}=300\)

31- Choice C is correct
\(f(x)=2x^2-x,g(x)=x^2-6 , (f-g)(x)=f(x)–g(x)=(2x^2-x)-(x^2-6 )=2x^2-x-x^2+6=x^2-x+6\)

32- Choice A is correct
\(f(x)=-x^3-4x^2+6x+7,g(x)=-1\), then: \(f(g(x))= f(-1)=-(-1)^3-4(-1)^2+6(-1)+7=-(-1)-4(1)-6+7=1-4-6+7=-2\)

33- Choice A is correct
Plug in \(\frac{z}{5}\) for \(z\) and simplify.
\(x=\frac{8y+\frac{r}{r+1}}{\frac{6}{\frac{z}{5}}}=\frac{8y+\frac{r}{r+1}}{\frac{5×6}{z}}=\frac{8y+\frac{r}{r+1}}{5×\frac{6}{z}}=\frac{1}{5}×\frac{8y+\frac{r}{r+1}}{\frac{6}{z}}=\frac{x}{5}\)

34- Choice B is correct
Use the information provided in the question to draw the shape.
Use Pythagorean Theorem: \(a^2+b^2=c^2\)
\(12^2+35^2=c^2 ⇒ 144+1225= c^2⇒1369=c^2⇒ c=37\)

35- Choice D is correct
\(y =ab^2-3a^2 b ,a=2,b=-2\), Plug in the values of a and b in the equation: \(y=2(-2)^2-3(2)^2 (-2)=2(4)-3(4)(-2)=8+24=32\)

36- Choice A is correct
I. \(|a|<1→-1<a<1\)
Multiply all sides by \(b\). Since, \(b>0\) →\(-b<ba<b\) (it is true!)
II. Since, \(-1<a<1\), and \(a<0→-a>a^2>a\) (plug in \(−\frac{1}{2}\), and check!) (It’s false)
III. \(-1<a<1\), multiply all sdes by \(4\), then: \(-4<4a<4\)
Subtract \(5\) from all sides. Then: \(-4-5<4a-5<4-5→-9<4a-5<-1\) (It is false!)

37- Choice C is correct
\(One \space liter = 1000 \space cm^3→ 8 \space liters = 8000 \space cm^3⇒ 8000=16×5×h→h=\frac{8000}{80}=100 \space cm\)
