What type of math question are on the SATs


1) What is the average (arithmetic mean) of all the multiples of ten from 10 to 190 inclusive? C is the answer because when add up all the multiples of 10 (10 + 20 + 30 +190), and divide by the number of terms (19) and The middle term out of 19 is the tenth term in the series = 100.
A. 90 B. 95 (C). 100 D. 105 E. 110

SAT math question


3) An amusement park charges $8 for an adults' ticket, and $6 for a children's ticket. On a certain

day, a total of 150 tickets were sold for a total cost of $1020. How many more children's tickets were sold than adults' tickets? (30) 50 60 90 120 A is the answer for that

SAT math question

If a is increased by 50 percent and b is decreased by 20 percent, by what percent is the area of the lawn increased?

A 15%

(B)20% C30% D45% E70%

When b decreases by 20%, it goes from 100 feet to 80 feet, since 20% of 100 is 20. So the original area was a x b = 100 x 100 = 10,000 square feet. The new area is 150 x 80 = 12,000 square feet. So the area has increased by 12,000 10,000 = 2,000 square feet.

Challenging questions(SAT)

Machine A can produce 1,000 sausages in 4 hours. Machine B can produce 1,000 sausages in 8 hours. Working together at their respective rates, how long will it take the machines to produce 1,000 sausages? A 1 hr 40 min B2 hrs (C)2 hrs 40 min D3 hrs E4 hrs 20 min

If it produces sausages at a rate of 1000 in 4 hours, then it makes 250 sausages per hour. Machine B produces sausages at a rate of 1000 in 8 hours, making its hourly rate 125 sausages per hour. Working together at their respective rates, therefore, the two machines produce 125 + 250 = 375 sausages per hour, and so it will take them hours, or 2 hours 40 minutes to produce 1,000 sausages,So I would say c is the answer.
