Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    20 % of 2 is equal to

    • A.

      20

    • B.

      4

    • C.

      0.4

    • D.

      0.04

    Correct Answer
    C. 0.4
    Explanation
    The question asks for 20% of 2, which can be calculated by multiplying 2 by 0.20. This gives us 0.4, which is the correct answer.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    The population of a country increased by an average of 2% per year from 2000 to 2003. If the population of this country was 2 000 000 on December 31, 2003, then the population of this country on January 1, 2000, to the nearest thousand would have been

    • A.

      1 846 000

    • B.

      1 852 000

    • C.

      1 000 000

    • D.

      1 500 000

    Correct Answer
    A. 1 846 000
    Explanation
    The population of the country increased by an average of 2% per year from 2000 to 2003. To find the population in 2000, we need to calculate the population increase over the 3-year period.

    Let's assume the population on January 1, 2000, is P.

    From 2000 to 2001, the population would have increased by 2% of P, which is 0.02P.
    So, on January 1, 2001, the population would be P + 0.02P = 1.02P.

    Similarly, from 2001 to 2002, the population would have increased by 2% of 1.02P, which is 0.02(1.02P) = 0.0204P.
    So, on January 1, 2002, the population would be 1.02P + 0.0204P = 1.0404P.

    Finally, from 2002 to 2003, the population would have increased by 2% of 1.0404P, which is 0.020808P.
    So, on January 1, 2003, the population would be 1.0404P + 0.020808P = 1.061208P.

    Given that the population on December 31, 2003, is 2,000,000, we can set up the equation:
    1.061208P = 2,000,000

    Solving for P, we get P ≈ 1,846,000. Therefore, the population on January 1, 2000, to the nearest thousand would have been 1,846,000.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    The exam scores of all 500 students were recorded and it was determined that these scores were normally distributed. If Jane's score is 0.8 standard deviation above the mean, then how many, to the nearest unit, students scored above Jane?

    • A.

      394

    • B.

      250

    • C.

      400

    • D.

      106

    Correct Answer
    D. 106
    Explanation
    Jane's score being 0.8 standard deviation above the mean indicates that she is above the majority of students. Since the scores are normally distributed, we know that approximately 68% of the scores fall within one standard deviation of the mean. This means that approximately 68% of the students scored below Jane. Therefore, the number of students who scored above Jane would be approximately 100% - 68% = 32%. Since there are 500 students in total, 32% of 500 is approximately 160. However, we need to round to the nearest unit, so the answer is 106.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    What is the next prime number after 7?

    • A.

      9

    • B.

      11

    • C.

      5

    • D.

      14

    Correct Answer
    B. 11
    Explanation
    The next prime number after 7 is 11 because a prime number is a number that is only divisible by 1 and itself. 9 is not prime because it is divisible by 3, 5 is not prime because it is divisible by 1 and 5, and 14 is not prime because it is divisible by 1, 2, 7, and 14. Therefore, the correct answer is 11.

    Rate this question:

A million is equal to one thousand thousand, a billion is equal to one thousand million, a trillion is equal to one thousand billion, and a quadrillion is equal to one thousand trillion.
