• 1.
The sum of two factors of 48 is nineteen.  The larger factor, x, is one more than five times the smaller factor, y.  Which system of equations can be used to find the numbers?
• A.

X = 19 - y x = 5y + 1

• B.

X = 19 + y y = 5x + 1

• C.

X = y + 19 y = 5x - 1

• D.

X = y - 19 x = 5y + 1

• 2.
At September Fest, the first dance of the year, the Student Council charged \$3 for couples and \$2 for singles.  If 365 tickets were sold, and the total receipts were \$925, which pair of equations would determine the number of each ticket sold?
• A.

X - y = 365 3x + 2y = 925

• B.

X - y = 365 x + y = 925

• C.

X + y = 365 3x + 2y = 925

• D.

X + y = 925 2x + 3y = 365

• 3.
The length of a rectangle is twice its width, while the perimeter of the rectangle is 36 units.  Which system of equations can be used to find the length "L" and the width "W" of the rectangle?
• A.

2L = W 2L + 2W = 36

• B.

L = 2W 2L + 2W = 36

• C.

2L = W L + W = 18

• D.

L = 2W + 2 36 - W = L

• 4.
