Solutions
If a square box has a volume of 21 in3 what's its perimeter?

28 inches

21 inches

35 inches

7 inches

SOLUTION
The volume of a box is length x width x height or V = l x w x h. We know that the box is square which means that length = width = height so the volume equation becomes V = 3s where s is the length of one side of the box. Solving V = 3s for s gives us: s=
V 3

21 3

= 7 so the size of each side of the box is 7.

The perimeter of a box is 2w + 2h which, in our case, is: (2 inches x 7) + (2 inches x 7) = 14 inches + 14 inches = 28 inches

Which of the following is a prime number?


39

44

10

31

SOLUTION
A prime number is an integer that can only be equally divided by 1 and itself. Of these answers, only 31 cannot be divided equally by any number but 1 and itself.

Which of the following is a similarity between equilateral and isosceles triangles?


Both have three angles with equal measurement.

Both contain right angles.

Both have at least two sides with equal length.

Both have three sides with equal length.

SOLUTION
An equilateral triangle is a triangle where all three sides have equal length and all three interior angles have equal measurement (60). An isosceles triangle has two sides with equal length and two angles with equal measurement.

(5 15) 6 8 7 = ?
A
2.86

-61.14

-9.71

-86.14

SOLUTION
The correct order of operations is to resolve the calculations inside the parentheses first then MDAS - Mulnotely, Divide, Add, then Subtract. Following this order of operations produces: ( 5 15) 6 8 7 =

10 6 8 7 = 60 8 7 = 60 1.14 = -61.14.

Solve for n: 3 n 6

= 12

SOLUTION
Solving this problem for n:

3n 6 = 12 3n = 12 + 6 n = 18 3 = 6
