Geometry Preview Readiness Test for the Summer Academic Enrichment Program (SAEP)


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Solve   2/3 + 11/18

    Explanation
    The given question asks to solve the addition of 2/3 and 11/18. To add fractions, we need to find a common denominator, which in this case is 18. We then convert both fractions to have a denominator of 18. 2/3 becomes 12/18 and 11/18 remains the same. Adding these fractions gives us 23/18. The mixed number form of 23/18 is 1 5/18. The decimal form of 23/18 is 1.27777778.

    Find the Slope of a line with the points (-4,6) and (1,10)

    • A.

      -4/3

    • B.

      4/3

    • C.

      4/5

    • D.

      -5/4

    Correct Answer
    C. 4/5
    Explanation
    To find the slope of a line, we use the formula (y2 - y1) / (x2 - x1), where (x1, y1) and (x2, y2) are the coordinates of two points on the line. In this case, the coordinates are (-4,6) and (1,10). Plugging these values into the formula, we get (10 - 6) / (1 - (-4)), which simplifies to 4/5. Therefore, the correct answer is 4/5.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    What is the length of c? a = 9 ft, b = 5ft, and c = ?

    • A.

      √106 ft

    • B.

      106 ft

    • C.

      √196 ft

    • D.

      196 ft

    Correct Answer
    A. √106 ft
    Explanation
    The length of c can be found using the Pythagorean theorem, which states that in a right triangle, the square of the hypotenuse (c) is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides (a and b). In this case, a = 9 ft and b = 5 ft. Thus, c^2 = 9^2 + 5^2 = 81 + 25 = 106. Taking the square root of 106 gives us the length of c, which is approximately √106 ft.

    Solve the equation 3(6 + 5y) = 2(-5 + 4y)

    • A.

      Y = -7

    • B.

      Y = -4

    • C.

      Y = 4

    • D.

      Y = 7

    Correct Answer
    B. Y = -4
    Explanation
    To solve the equation, we first distribute the numbers inside the parentheses. This gives us 18 + 15y = -10 + 8y. Next, we combine like terms by subtracting 8y from both sides, which gives us 10y = -28. Finally, we divide both sides by 10 to solve for y, which gives us y = -2.8. However, since the options provided are whole numbers, we round -2.8 to the nearest whole number, which is -3. Therefore, the correct answer is y = -4.

    Solve the equation (2/3)x - 1/6 = (1/2)x + 5/6

    • A.

      2

    • B.

      3

    • C.

      5

    • D.

      6

    Correct Answer
    D. 6
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 6. This is because when solving the equation (2/3)x - 1/6 = (1/2)x + 5/6, we can simplify it by multiplying every term by 6 to eliminate the fractions. This results in 4x - 1 = 3x + 5. By rearranging the equation, we get x = 6.

    What are the coordinates of the points on the top triangle?  (put a comma between your answers, placing them in order of A, B, C)[e.g. (5,6), (10, 123), (57, 88)]

    Correct Answer
    (-2,4), (2,3), (-1,1)
    (-2, 4), (2, 3), (-1, 1)
    (-2,4),(2,3),(-1,1)
    (-2, 4),(2, 3),(-1, 1)

    What would be the correct expression to represent the are of the circle? π is pi

    • A.

      49 π

    • B.

      7 π

    • C.

      14 π

    • D.

      √49 π

    Correct Answer
    A. 49 π
    Explanation
    The correct expression to represent the area of a circle is given by multiplying the square of the radius by pi. In this case, the radius is 7, so the expression becomes 7^2 * π, which simplifies to 49π.

    A dripping faucet wastes 3 cups of water every 24 hours.  How much water is wasted in a week?

    • A.

      504 cups

    • B.

      72 cups

    • C.

      21 cups

    • D.

      168 cups

    Correct Answer
    C. 21 cups
    Explanation
    If a dripping faucet wastes 3 cups of water every 24 hours, then in a week (which consists of 7 days), it will waste 3 cups x 7 days = 21 cups of water.
