• C.

The angles of all triangles add up to 180 degrees.

• D.

The hypotenuse of a right triangle is always the longest side.

### Charlie buys a new television at a cost of \$536.  If the tax is 8%, how much will he have to pay in all?

• A.

\$42.88

\$493.12

• C.

\$587.99

• D.

\$107.20

• E.

\$578.88

E. \$578.88
Explanation
Multiply the cost of the television by the tax (written as a decimal): 536 x .08 = 42.88 Add 42.88 back to the price of the television: 536 + 42.88 = 578.88

Rate this question:

• 5.

### Solve for x: 6x + 10 = 40 x = ____

5
Explanation
Subtract 10 from both sides (6x + 10 - 10 = 40 - 10) This means that 6x = 30 Divide both sides by 6 (6x/6 = 30/6) This means x = 5

Rate this question:

• 6.

### How many cups are in 16 gallons?

• A.

8

• B.

16

• C.

144

• D.

### In a right triangle, if side a = 12cm and side b = 14cm, what is the measure of side c?

• A.

15.3cm

• B.

18.4cm

• C.

14.8cm

• D.

13cm

B. 18.4cm
Explanation
a squared + b squared = c squared, so...
12 squared (144) + 14 squared (196) = c squared
144 + 196 = c squared
340 = c squared, so the square root of 340 = c
c = 18.4

Rate this question:

• 8.

### In a circle, how are the diameter and the radius related?  Check ALL that apply:

• A.

The diameter is half of the radius.

• B.

The radius is half of the diameter.

• C.

The diameter is twice the radius.

• D.

The radius is twice the diameter.

• E.

The diameter and radius are equal.

• F.

There is no relationship between the diameter and radius.

B. The radius is half of the diameter.
C. The diameter is twice the radius.
Explanation
The radius is always half of the diameter, and the diameter is always twice the radius.

Rate this question:

• 9.

### What is the perimeter of an eqilateral trianlge with a base of 5cm?  P = ___ cm
