## SSAT Lower Level Mathematical Reasoning Practice Test Answers and Explanations

1- **Choice B is correct. **

The closest to 4.25 is 4.05 in the options provided.

2- **Choice B is correct.**

\(\frac{5}{4}=1.25\), the only option that is greater than \(1.25\) is \(\frac{3}{2}\).

\(\frac{3}{2}=1.5 ,1.5>1.25\)

3- **Choice D is correct.**

If \(\frac{1}{4}\) of a number is greater than 5, the number must be greater than 20.

\(\frac{1}{4} x>5\)→multiply both sides of the inequality by 4,then: \(x>20\)

4- **Choice E is correct. **

\(3×(M+N)=12\), then \(M+N=4. M>0→N\) could not be 4

5- **Choice A is correct. **

There are 9 squares and 3 of them are shaded. Therefore, 3 out of 9 or \(\frac{3}{9}=\frac{1}{3}\) are shaded.

6- **Choice A is correct. **

The value of digit 5 in both numbers \(x\) and \(y\) are in the tens place. Therefore, they have the same value.

7- **Choice E is correct. **

A represents digit 4 in the multiplication. \(11×296=3,256\)

8- **Choice B is correct. **

N is even. Let’s choose 2 and 4 for N. Now, let’s review the options provided.

A. \(\frac{N}{2}=\frac{2}{2}=1, \frac{N}{2}=\frac{4}{2}=2\), One result is odd and the other one is even.

B. \(N-1=2-1=1, 4-1=3\) Both results are odd.

C. \(N+2=2+2=4, 4+2=6\) Both results are even.

D. \((2×N)-2=(2×2)-2=2, (4×2)-2=6\) Both results are even.

E. \(N+4=2+4=6, 4+4=8\) Both results are even.

9- **Choice B is correct. **

\(6.4-3.05=3.35\), which is closest to 3.55

10- **Choice D is correct. **

The ratio of lions to tigers is 3 to 2 at the zoo. Therefore, total number of lions and tigers must be divisible by 5. \(3+2=5\), From the numbers provided, only 74 is not divisible by 5.

12- **Choice C is correct. **

\(\frac{3-7+5×2+2}{6-2}=\frac{8}{4}=2\)

13- **Choice C is correct. **

Area of a square \(=\) (one side) \(×\) (one side), \(3×3=9\)

14- **Choice C is correct. **

\(24=x×3→x=24÷3=8 \)

\(x\) equals to 8. Let’s review the options provided:

A. \(x-3→8-3=5 \) 24 is not divisible by 5.

B. \(2x+3→2×8+3=19 \) 24 is not divisible by 19.

C. \(2x+8→2×8+8=24 \) 24 is divisible by 24.

D. \( x×4→8×4=32 \) 24 is not divisible by 32.

E. \(3x+9→3×8+9=33 \) 24 is not divisible by 33.

The answer is D.

15- **Choice B is correct.**

\(3+x=12→x=9→9+17=26\)

16- **Choice E is correct. **

perimeter of a square\(=4×\)side

17- **Choice C is correct. **

\(3+2N=13→2N=13-3=10→N=5\)

18- **Choice B is correct.**

\(10-13=-3\), The temperature at midnight was 3 degrees below zero.

19- ** Choice B is correct. **

Area of a triangle \(= \frac{1}{2}×\)(base)\(×\)(height)\(= \frac{1}{2}×3×8=12\)

20- **Choice B is correct. **

\(\frac{3}{2}×\frac{5}{6}=\frac{15}{12}=\frac{5}{4}\) ,Choice B is equal to \(\frac{5}{4}\).

\(\frac{5×2}{8}=\frac{10}{8}=\frac{5}{4}\)
