    Combine the like terms

    • A.

      8x - y + 13xy + 9

    • B.

      8x + y - 13xy + 9

    • C.

      8x - y - 13xy + 9

    • D.

      8x -7y - 3xy + 9

    Correct Answer
    C. 8x - y - 13xy + 9
    Explanation
    The given expression is 8x - y + 13xy + 9. To combine like terms, we add or subtract the coefficients of the same variables. In this expression, the like terms are 8x and -13xy, as they both have the variable x. The coefficient of x in 8x is 8, and in -13xy it is -13. Therefore, when we combine these like terms, we get 8x - 13xy. The remaining terms -y and 9 do not have any like terms to combine with. Hence, the final expression after combining like terms is 8x - y - 13xy + 9.

    • C.

      5/3

    • D.

      -1/4

    Correct Answer
    B. -1
    Explanation
    The given expression can be simplified as follows: 1 - 1 + 5/3 - 1/4. The first two terms cancel each other out (1 - 1 = 0). Then, we can find a common denominator for the remaining terms, which is 12. So, the expression becomes (20/12 - 3/12) = 17/12. Simplifying further, we get 1 and 5/12. However, the given answer is -1, which does not match the calculated value. Therefore, the given answer is incorrect.

    Solve .

    • A.

      X > -12

    • B.

      X < -12

    • C.

      X > -7

    • D.

      X < -7

    Correct Answer
    D. X < -7
    Explanation
    The given set of inequalities states that x is greater than -12 and x is also less than -12. However, this is not possible as a number cannot be simultaneously greater than and less than -12. Therefore, the correct answer is x < -7, which means that x is less than -7.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Write an algebraic expression for the following: Triple a quantity increased by ten.

    • A.

      X + 10

    • B.

      3x + 10

    • C.

      3(x + 10)

    • D.

      3x + 30

    Correct Answer
    B. 3x + 10
    Explanation
    The expression "Triple a quantity increased by ten" means that we need to multiply a quantity by 3 and then add 10 to it. The expression that represents this is 3(x + 10), where x is the quantity. This expression simplifies to 3x + 30, which means that the quantity is tripled and then 10 is added to it. Therefore, the correct answer is 3x + 30.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    On-Demand Movies  Joseph just changed his cable television plan to include on-demand movies for $2.95 each.  The charge for the basic cable package is $24.95 per month.  If his bill one month was $39.70, how many on-demand movies did he watch?

    • A.

      44

    • B.

      8

    • C.

      5

    • D.

      31

    Correct Answer
    C. 5
    Explanation
    To find the number of on-demand movies Joseph watched, we need to subtract the cost of the basic cable package from his total bill. His bill was $39.70 and the basic cable package cost $24.95, so the remaining amount ($39.70 - $24.95 = $14.75) must be the cost of the on-demand movies. Since each on-demand movie costs $2.95, we can divide the remaining amount by the cost per movie to find the number of movies watched ($14.75 / $2.95 = 5). Therefore, Joseph watched 5 on-demand movies.

    • D.

      5x^2y (2x - 7)

    Correct Answer
    B. 5x^2 (2x - 7y)
    Explanation
    The given expression can be factored by finding the greatest common factor (GCF) of all the terms. The GCF of 5x^2 and 5x^2 (2x - 7y) is 5x^2. Therefore, factoring out the GCF from the expression gives 5x^2 (2x - 7y).

    Factor the trinomial: 

    • A.

      (y - 5)(y + 7)

    • B.

      (y - 5)(y - 7)

    • C.

      (y - 2)(y + 1)

    • D.

      (y + 5)(y - 7)

    Correct Answer
    D. (y + 5)(y - 7)
    Explanation
    The given trinomial can be factored as (y + 5)(y - 7) by using the FOIL method. The First terms are y multiplied by y, which gives y^2. The Outer terms are y multiplied by -7, which gives -7y. The Inner terms are -5 multiplied by y, which gives -5y. And the Last terms are -5 multiplied by -7, which gives +35. Combining like terms, we get y^2 - 7y - 5y + 35, which simplifies to y^2 - 12y + 35. Therefore, the correct answer is (y + 5)(y - 7).

    • C.

      (2x + 3)(2x - 3)

    • D.

      (4x + y)(x - 9)

    Correct Answer
    B. (2x + 3y)(2x - 3y)
    Explanation
    The given expression can be factored using the difference of two squares formula, which states that for any two terms a and b, (a^2 - b^2) can be factored as (a + b)(a - b). In this case, the terms are 2x and 3y, so the expression (2x + 3y)(2x - 3y) is the correct factorization.

      (2x - 1)(x + 7)

    • B.

      (2x + 1)(x - 7)

    • C.

      (x + 14)(x - 1)

    • D.

      2(x - 7)(x + 1)

    Correct Answer
    A. (2x - 1)(x + 7)
    Explanation
    The given expression can be factored using the slide and divide method. By multiplying the first terms of both binomials (2x and x), we get 2x^2. By multiplying the outer terms (-1 and x), we get -x. By multiplying the inner terms (2x and 7), we get 14x. Finally, by multiplying the last terms (-1 and 7), we get -7. Combining these terms, we get 2x^2 - x + 14x - 7, which simplifies to 2x^2 + 13x - 7. Therefore, the correct answer is (2x - 1)(x + 7).

  • 18. 

    Solve for x and y using substitution:  x = 18 - 3y 2x + y = 11

    • A.

      X = 5, y = 3

    • B.

      X = 3, y = 5

    • C.

      X = 33, y = -5

    • D.

      X = 7, y = -3

    Correct Answer
    B. X = 3, y = 5
    Explanation
    To solve for x and y using substitution, we first solve the first equation for x in terms of y: x = 18 - 3y. Then, we substitute this expression for x into the second equation: 2(18 - 3y) + y = 11. Simplifying this equation, we get 36 - 6y + y = 11. Combining like terms, we have -5y = -25. Dividing both sides by -5, we find that y = 5. Substituting this value back into the first equation, we can solve for x: x = 18 - 3(5) = 18 - 15 = 3. Therefore, the solution is x = 3, y = 5.

    Solve for x and y using the addition method: 6x - 2y = 10 2x + 3y = 7

    • A.

      X = 8.287, y = 4.429

    • B.

      X = 1.152, y = -1.545

    • C.

      X = 2, y = 1

    • D.

      X = 1, y = -2

    Correct Answer
    C. X = 2, y = 1
    Explanation
    The given system of equations can be solved using the addition method. By multiplying the first equation by 3 and the second equation by 2, we can eliminate the y variable when we add the two equations together. This results in the equation 12x + 6y = 30. When we subtract this equation from the original second equation, 2x + 3y = 7, we get -10x = -23. Solving for x, we find that x = 2. Substituting this value back into the first equation, we can solve for y and find that y = 1. Therefore, the solution to the system of equations is x = 2 and y = 1.

    Given that 2x + 5y = 12, complete the ordered pair (1, ?) so that it is a solution to the given equation.

    • A.

      5

    • B.

      2

    • C.

      3.5

    • D.

      1

    Correct Answer
    B. 2
    Explanation
    To find the value of y that completes the ordered pair (1, ?) as a solution to the equation 2x + 5y = 12, we substitute x=1 into the equation. Plugging in x=1, we get 2(1) + 5y = 12. Simplifying this equation gives us 2 + 5y = 12. By subtracting 2 from both sides, we obtain 5y = 10. Dividing both sides by 5, we find that y = 2. Therefore, the correct answer is 2.
