Algebra 2 Semester Exam Practice - Quiz

Note: ^ is used to note exponents ie. X^2 reads x to the second power.
It is importantthat when entering answers you use spaces between operation symbols.
Ex. 2x + 3y instead of 2x+3y
And no spaces before and after parenthesis or exponents
Ex. 2(x^-2 + 3)

    Solve 24p - 12 = 50; p = _____, round to the nearest hundredth.

    Correct Answer
    2.58
    Explanation
    To solve the equation 24p - 12 = 50, we need to isolate the variable p. First, we add 12 to both sides of the equation, which gives us 24p = 62. Then, we divide both sides by 24 to solve for p. Simplifying this gives us p = 62/24 = 2.5833333. Rounding to the nearest hundredth, we get p ≈ 2.58.

    Solve 5x - 23 = 56; x = ____, round to the nearest tenth.

    Correct Answer
    15.8
    Explanation
    To solve the equation 5x - 23 = 56, we need to isolate the variable x. First, we add 23 to both sides of the equation to get 5x = 79. Then, we divide both sides by 5 to solve for x, which gives us x = 15.8. Rounding to the nearest tenth, we get the final answer of 15.8.

      Consistent and dependent

    • C.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    A. Consistent and independent
    Explanation
    The system of equations is consistent because there is at least one solution that satisfies both equations. It is also independent because the coefficients of x and y in both equations are not proportional to each other. Therefore, the system has a unique solution.

    • B.

      84

    • C.

      74

    • D.

      34

    Correct Answer
    B. 84
    Explanation
    To solve the equation, we first isolate the square root term by subtracting 6 from both sides: sqrt(x - 3) = 9. Then, we square both sides to eliminate the square root: x - 3 = 81. Adding 3 to both sides gives us x = 84. Therefore, the correct answer is 84.

    Rate this question:

  • 26. 

    M + 5 < 4 or m + 2 > 9

    • A.

      M > -1 or m< 7

    • B.

      M . -1 or m > 7

    • C.

      M < -1 or m > 7

    • D.

      M > - 1 or m > 7

    Correct Answer
    C. M < -1 or m > 7
    Explanation
    The given equation is a compound inequality with two parts connected by "or". To solve it, we need to solve each part separately and then combine the solutions.

    For the first part, m + 5 < 4, we subtract 5 from both sides to isolate m, giving us m < -1.

    For the second part, m + 2 > 9, we subtract 2 from both sides to isolate m, giving us m > 7.

    Combining the solutions, we get m < -1 or m > 7. This means that m can be any value less than -1 or any value greater than 7.

    • A.

      6x^6y^4

    • B.

    • D.

      9x^6y^4

    Correct Answer
    A. 6x^6y^4
    Explanation
    To simplify the given expression, we need to find the square root of each term. The square root of 36 is 6, the square root of x^12 is x^6, and the square root of y^8 is y^4. Therefore, the simplified expression is 6x^6y^4.

    Express the product in Scientific notation. Round to the nearest hundredth and use spaces between x, and no spaces before or after parenthesis or ^. (6.34 x 10^-3)(6.3 x 10^-5)

    Correct Answer
    3.99 x 10^-7
    Explanation
    To multiply numbers in scientific notation, we multiply the coefficients and add the exponents. In this case, the product of the coefficients is 6.34 x 6.3 = 39.882. The exponents are -3 and -5, so we add them to get -8. Rounding 39.882 to the nearest hundredth gives us 39.88. Therefore, the product in scientific notation is 3.99 x 10^-7.

    • C.

      8squrt(3)

    • D.

      Squrt(192)

    Correct Answer
    C. 8squrt(3)
    Explanation
    The given question asks for the result of dividing the square root of 1344 by the square root of 7. Simplifying this expression, we can rewrite the square root of 1344 as the square root of 64 times the square root of 21, which becomes 8 times the square root of 21. Similarly, the square root of 7 cannot be simplified further. Therefore, dividing 8 times the square root of 21 by the square root of 7 gives us 8 times the square root of 3.
