TSI Mathematical Reasoning Practice Test Answers and Explanations

1- Choice D is correct
If $$1.05 < x ≤ 3.04$$, then $$x$$ cannot be equal to 3.40. Because: $$3.04<3.40$$

2- Choice B is correct
$$a=8⇒$$ area of triangle is $$=\frac{1}{2} (8×8)=\frac{64}{2}=32$$ cm

3- Choice C is correct
$$66^\circ + 42^\circ = 108^\circ$$
$$180^\circ – 108^\circ = 72^\circ$$
The value of the third angle is $$72^\circ$$.

4- Choice B is correct
Simplify:
$$10 – \frac{2}{3} x ≥ 12 ⇒ – \frac{2}{3} x ≥ 2 ⇒ – x ≥ 3 ⇒ x ≤ – 3$$

5- Choice A is correct
Factor each trinomial $$x^2 – 2x – 8$$ and $$x^2 – 6x + 8$$
$$x^2 – 2x – 8 ⇒ (x – 4)(x + 2)$$
$$x^2 – 6x + 8 ⇒ (x – 2)(x – 4)$$
$$(x – 4)$$ is a factor of both trinomial.

6- Choice B is correct
$$\frac{1+b}{6b^2}=\frac{1}{b^2} ⇒(b≠0) b^2+b^3=6b^2⇒b^3-5b^2=0⇒b^2 (b-5)=0⇒b-5=0⇒b=5$$

7- Choice D is correct
Use FOIL (First, Out, In, Last)
$$(x + 7) (x + 5) = x^2 + 5x + 7x + 35 = x^2 + 12x + 35$$

8- Choice A is correct
$$\frac{54}{6}=\frac{27}{3}=9, \frac{48}{6}=\frac{24}{3}=8, \frac{36}{6}=\frac{18}{3}=6, \frac{59}{6}=\frac{59}{6}$$
59 is prime number

9- Choice B is correct
$$x^2 – 64 = 0 ⇒ x^2 = 64 ⇒ x = 8$$

10- Choice C is correct
If $$a = 8$$ then $$b = \frac{8^2}{4} + 4 ⇒ b = \frac{64}{4} + 4 ⇒b = 16 + 4 = 20$$

11- Choice D is correct
tan $$(– π/6) = – \frac{\sqrt{3}}{3}$$

12- Choice A is correct
$$\frac{\sqrt{32a^5 b^3 }}{\sqrt{2ab^2}}= \frac{4a^2 b\sqrt{2ab}}{b\sqrt{2a}} = 4a^2\sqrt{b}$$

13- Choice D is correct
$$E = 4 + A$$
$$A = S – 3$$

14- Choice C is correct
$$\begin{cases}5x + y = 9\\10x-7y= -18\end{cases} ⇒$$ Multiplication $$(–2)$$ in first equation $$⇒ \begin{cases}-10x- 2y = -18\\10x-7y= -18\end{cases}$$ Add two equations together $$⇒ –9y = –36 ⇒ y = 4$$ then: $$x = 1$$

15- Choice B is correct
$$(x – h)^2 + (y – k)^2 = r^2$$ ⇒ center: (h,k) and radius: r
$$(x – 3)^2 + (y + 6)^2 = 12$$ ⇒ center: $$(3,-6)$$ and radius: $$2\sqrt{3}$$

16- Choice D is correct
c$$(3)=(3)^2+10(3)+30=9+30+30=69$$
$$4×3=12⇒12-69=-57⇒57,000$$ loss

17- Choice B is correct
sinB$$=\frac{the length of the side that is opposite that angle}{the length of the longest side of the triangle}=\frac{4}{5}$$

18- Choice C is correct
$$-7y=-6x-12⇒y=\frac{-6}{-7} x-\frac{12}{-7}⇒y=\frac{6}{7} x+\frac{12}{7}$$

19- Choice D is correct
$$(g – f)(x) = g(x) – f(x) = (– x^2 – 1 – 2x) – (5 + x) – x^2 – 1 – 2x – 5 – x = – x^2 – 3x – 6$$

20- Choice B is correct
$$\frac{|3+x|}{7}≤5⇒|3+x|≤35⇒-35≤3+x≤35⇒-35-3≤x≤35-3⇒-38≤x≤32$$
