## ISEE Upper Level Math Practice Test Answers and Explanations

1- Choice C is correct
$$|15-(18÷|2-8|)|=|15-(18÷6)=|15-3|=12$$

2- Choice D is correct
Use FOIL (First, Out, In, Last) method.
$$(x-4)(2x+2)=2x^2+2x-8x-8=2x^2-6x-8$$

3- Choice B is correct
Solve for $$x$$. $$-4≤4x-5<7$$⇒ (add 5 all sides) $$5-4≤4x-5+5<7+5$$ ⇒
$$1≤4x<12$$ ⇒ (divide all sides by $$4$$) $$\frac{1}{4}≤x<3$$, x is between $$\frac{1}{4}$$ and $$3$$. Choice B represent this inequality.

4- Choice D is correct
$$x_{1,2} =\frac{-b ± \sqrt{b^2-4ac}}{2a}, ax^2 + bx + c = 0, 3x^2 +8x + 4 = 0$$⇒then: $$a = 3, b = 8$$ and $$c = 4$$
$$x = \frac{-8 + \sqrt{8^2 – 4 .3 .4}}{2 .3}= –\frac{2}{3}, x = \frac{-8 – \sqrt{8^2 – 4 .3 .4}(}{2 .3} = – 2$$

5- Choice B is correct
$$\frac{8}{23} = 0.347$$ and $$45\% = 0.45$$ therefore x should be between $$0.0.347$$ and $$0.45$$
Choice B. $$\frac{8}{19} = 0.421$$ is between $$0.347$$ and $$0.45$$

6- Choice A is correct
A linear equation is a relationship between two variables, $$x$$ and $$y$$, and can be written in the form of $$y=$$ m$$x +$$ b.
A non-proportional linear relationship takes on the form $$y =$$ m$$x +$$ b, where b$$≠$$ 0 and its graph is a line that does not cross through the origin.

7- Choice D is correct
Translated 6 units down and 5 units to the left means: $$(x.y) ⇒ (x-5,y-6)$$

8- Choice B is correct
Write the proportion and solve for missing side.
$$\frac{Smaller \space triangle \space height}{Smaller \space triangle \space base}=\frac{Bigger \space triangle \space height}{Bigger \space triangle \space base} = ⇒ \frac{100 \space cm}{150 \space cm} =\frac{100+280 \space cm}{x} ⇒ x=570 cm$$

9- Choice B is correct
$$0.00000625= \frac{6.25}{1,000,000}⇒6.25 × 10^{–6}$$

10- Choice B is correct
The ratio of boy to girls is 7:5. Therefore, there are 7 boys out of 12 students. To find the answer, first divide the total number of students by 12, then multiply the result by 7.
$$540 ÷ 12 = 45 ⇒ 120 × 7 = 315$$

11- Choice C is correct
Probability = (number of desired outcomes)/ (number of total outcomes)
In this case, a desired outcome is selecting either a red or a yellow marble. Combine the number of red and yellow marbles: $$7 + 6 = 13$$ and divide this by the total number of marbles: $$5 + 7 + 6 = 18.$$ The probability is $$\frac{13}{18}$$.

12- Choice A is correct
Emily = Daniel, Emily = 9 Claire, Daniel $$= 24 +$$ Claire, Emily = Daniel →          Emily$$= 20 +$$ Claire
Emily = 9 Claire →            9 Claire $$= 24 +$$ Claire→9 Claire $$–$$ Claire = 24, 8 Claire = 24, Claire = 3

13- Choice B is correct
$$\frac{1}{4}$$ of the distance is $$4 \frac{2}{5}$$ miles. Then: $$\frac{1}{4}×4 \frac{2}{5}=\frac{1}{4}×\frac{22}{5}=\frac{22}{20}$$
Converting $$\frac{22}{20}$$ to a mixed number gives: $$\frac{22}{20}=1 \frac{2}{10}/20=1 \frac{1}{10}$$

14- Choice D is correct
Use Pythagorean theorem: $$a^2+b^2=c^2→s^2+h^2=(10s)^2→(6s)^2+h^2=100s^2$$
Subtracting $$s^2$$ from both sides gives: $$h^2=64s^2$$,
Square roots of both sides: $$h=\sqrt{64s^2}=8s$$

15- Choice C is correct
$$5 – 12 ÷ (2^4 ÷ 4) = 5 – 12 ÷ (16 ÷ 4) = 5 – 12 ÷ (4) = 5-3 =2$$

23- Choice D is correct
$$75 ÷ \frac{1}{6} =\frac{\frac{75}{1}}{\frac{1}{6}}= 75 × 6 = 450$$

24- Choice D is correct
For sum of 5: (1 & 4) and (4 & 1), (2 & 3) and (3 & 2), therefore we have 4 options.
For sum of 7: (1 & 6) and (6 & 1), (2 & 5) and (5 & 2), (3 & 4) and (4 & 3) we have 6 options.
To get a sum of 6 or 9 for two dice: 6 + 4 = 10
Since, we have 6 × 6 = 36 total number of options, the probability of getting a sum of 4 and 6 is 10 out of 36 or $$\frac{10}{36}=\frac{5}{18}$$.

25- Choice D is correct
Simplify: $$\frac{\frac{1}{4}-\frac{x+7}{8}}{\frac{x^2}{4}-\frac{1}{4}}=\frac{\frac{1}{4}(1-\frac{x+7}{2})}{\frac{x^2-1}{4}}=\frac{1-\frac{x+7}{2}}{x^2-1}⇒Simplify:1-\frac{x+7}{2}=\frac{2-x-7}{2} =\frac{-x-5}{2} Then:\frac{1-\frac{x+7}{2}}{x^2-1}=\frac{\frac{-x -5}{2}}{x^2-1}=\frac{-x – 5}{2(x^2 – 1)}=\frac{-x – 5}{2x^2- 2}$$

26- Choice C is correct
The distance of A to B on the coordinate plane is: $$\sqrt{(x_1-x_2 )^2+(y_1-y_2 )^2 }= \sqrt{(9-1)^2+(8-2)^2 }=\sqrt{8^2+6^2}, =\sqrt{64+36}=\sqrt{100}=10$$

Formula of triangle area $$= \frac{1}{2} (base × height)$$
Since the angles are 45-45-90, then this is an isosceles triangle, meaning that the base and height of the triangle are equal. Triangle area $$= \frac{1}{2} (base × height) = \frac{1}{2} (4 × 4) = 8$$
