### Mathematics is usually taught at ...

• A.

Home

• B.

School

• C.

Musuem

• D.

Restaurant

B. School
Explanation
Mathematics is usually taught at school because it is a fundamental subject that requires a structured learning environment. Schools provide the necessary resources, such as textbooks and math manipulatives, as well as qualified teachers who can guide students through the curriculum. Additionally, schools offer opportunities for students to collaborate with their peers, engage in group activities, and receive immediate feedback from their teachers. This facilitates a comprehensive understanding of mathematical concepts and promotes critical thinking skills. Teaching mathematics at home, a museum, or a restaurant may lack the necessary structure and resources to effectively teach the subject.

### 3√(8) means to find the cube root of ....

• A.

1

• B.

2

• C.

3

• D.

8

D. 8
Explanation
Finding the cube root of a number means finding the number that, when multiplied by itself twice, gives the original number. In this case, the original number is 8. Therefore, the cube root of 8 is 2, because 2 multiplied by itself twice equals 8.

• A.

Square root

• B.

Cube root

• C.

Ratio

• D.

Decimals

A. Square root
Explanation
The correct answer is square root because when there is no superscript number in a radical expression, it is understood that it is calling for the square root. The square root of a number is a value that, when multiplied by itself, gives the original number.
