Do you know algebra? How about an 8th-grade math algebra quiz right now? As you are now in the 8th grade, you get to say goodbye to basic math and say hello to algebra. It is understandable if you feel a little scared. The practice test below is designed to help you sharpen your skills in expanding equations. Give it a try. Wish you all the best to you with the test!

• 1.

### 3X (-5X+x^2-3) =

• A.

3x^3 - 15x^2 - 9x

• B.

4x^3-15x^2-8x

• C.

3x^3-15^2-2x

• D.

4x^3-15x^2-9x

A. 3x^3 - 15x^2 - 9x
Explanation
The given equation is a multiplication of 3x with the expression (-5x + x^2 - 3). To simplify the equation, we distribute the 3x to each term inside the parentheses. This results in 3x*(-5x) + 3x*(x^2) + 3x*(-3), which simplifies to -15x^2 + 3x^3 - 9x. Therefore, the correct answer is 3x^3 - 15x^2 - 9x.

### (6x-5)(3x+1)

• A.

9x - 9x - 5

• B.

18x^2 - 6x - 7

• C.

18x^2 - 9x - 5

• D.

18x^2 - 8x - 7

C. 18x^2 - 9x - 5
Explanation
The given expression is a product of two binomials: (6x-5) and (3x+1). To find the product, we can use the distributive property. Multiplying the first terms of each binomial gives us 6x * 3x = 18x^2. Multiplying the outer terms gives us 6x * 1 = 6x. Multiplying the inner terms gives us -5 * 3x = -15x. Finally, multiplying the last terms gives us -5 * 1 = -5. Combining like terms, we get 18x^2 - 9x - 5.

### (8x+1) (8x-1) = 73x^2 + 1 Equation above is incorrect.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
The equation (8x+1)(8x-1) = 73x^2 + 1 is incorrect because the product of (8x+1) and (8x-1) does not equal 73x^2 + 1. Therefore, the correct answer is True, indicating that the equation is indeed incorrect.

### If p×q = p+q + pq, then what is the value of 8 × 2?

• A.

10

• B.

12

• C.

14

• D.

26

D. 26
Explanation
The equation p×q = p+q + pq suggests that the multiplication of two numbers is equal to the sum of the two numbers plus their product. To find the value of 8 × 2, we substitute p = 8 and q = 2 into the equation. This gives us 8 × 2 = 8 + 2 + (8 × 2), which simplifies to 26.

### Is it true? (3x-7)^2 = 18x^2 - 74x + 97

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
The given statement is false because when we expand (3x-7)^2, we get 9x^2 - 42x + 49, which is not equal to 18x^2 - 74x + 97. Therefore, the correct answer is false.

Rate this question:

• 6.

### (3m^2-7m+8)(m-2)

• A.

3m^3 - 13m^2 + 22m - 16

• B.

3m^3 - 13m^2 + 25m - 14

• C.

4m^3 - 13m^2 + 22m - 16

• D.

3m^3 - 13m + 22m - 16

A. 3m^3 - 13m^2 + 22m - 16
Explanation
The given expression is a product of two binomials. To find the product, we can use the distributive property. We multiply each term of the first binomial, (3m^2-7m+8), by each term of the second binomial, (m-2). After simplifying, we get 3m^3 - 13m^2 + 22m - 16. Therefore, the correct answer is 3m^3 - 13m^2 + 22m - 16.

Rate this question:

• 7.

### Is it true? (4x-7)^2 = 16x^2 - 56x + 49

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
The given equation (4x-7)^2 = 16x^2 - 56x + 49 is true. This can be proven by expanding the square of the binomial (4x-7)^2, which results in 16x^2 - 56x + 49. Therefore, the equation is correct.

Rate this question:

• 8.

### (6x+1) (6x-1)

• A.

36x^2 + 1

• B.

36x^2 - 1

• C.

12x^2 -+ 1

• D.

12x - 1

B. 36x^2 - 1
Explanation
The given expression is a product of two binomials, (6x+1) and (6x-1). When we multiply these two binomials using the FOIL method, we get 36x^2 - 1. Therefore, the correct answer is 36x^2 - 1.

Rate this question:

• 9.

### If a*b = 2a-3b+ab, then what is 3*5+5*3?

• A.

17

• B.

18

• C.

21

• D.

22

D. 22
Explanation
To find the value of 3*5+5*3, we can substitute the values of a and b into the given equation. Let's assign a=3 and b=5 for 3*5. Plugging these values into the equation a*b = 2a-3b+ab, we get 3*5 = 2(3) - 3(5) + (3)(5). Simplifying this expression, we have 6 - 15 + 15 = 6. For 5*3, we have a=5 and b=3, 5*3 = 2*5 - 3*3 + 3*5 = 16. Adding both we get 22.
