(3) Figures that accompany problems in this test are intended to provide information useful in solving the problems.
They are drawn as accurately as possible EXCEPT when it is stated in a specific problem that its figure is not drawn to scale.
All figures lie in a plane unless otherwise indicated.
(4) Unless otherwise specified, the domain of any function f is assumed to be the set of all real numbers x for which
fix) is a real number.
(5) Reference information that may be useful in answering the questions in this test can be found on the page
preceding Question 1.

Your raw score for the SAT Math Level 2 test is based on the number of questions you answer correctly and incorrectly. Once you have determined your raw score, use the conversion table on page 17 of this book to calculate your scaled score.

1. Count the number of questions you answered correctly:

(A)

2. Count the number of questions you answered incorrectly, and multiply

that number by Vt:
(B) x 1/4 =
( C)
3. Subtract the value in (C) from value in (A):
4. Round the number in (D) to the nearest whole number.
