ALGEBRA

1. Find x in the equation shown: 4x2 + 48x + 144 = 400

a. 16, 4

b. -16, 4

c. -32, 8

d. -4, 16

Answer: b

Solution:

4x2 + 48x 256 = 0

x2 + 12x 64 = 0

(x + 16)(x 4) = 0,

x = -16, x = 4

2. The age of a crocodile at the Manila Zoo 13 years ago was 1/3 of its age 7 years from now. How old is

the crocodile at present?

a. 15

b. 21

c. 23

d. 27

Answer: c

Solution:

Let x = present age, x 13 = age 13 years ago, x+ 7 = age 7 years from now

1/3 (x+7)=x-13

x + 7 = 3x 39

-2x = -46

x = 23

So, the crocodile is 23 years old at present.

3. An airplane flying with the wind can cover a certain distance in 2 hours. The return trip against the

wind takes 2.5 hours. How fast is the plane and what is the speed of the air, if the one-way distance is

600 miles? (Let x-speed of the plane, y-speed of the wind)

a. x = 40, y = 260

Answer: c

b. x = 30, y = 270

c. x = 270, y = 30

d. x = 230, y = 70

Solution:

600/(x+y)=2 , 600/(x-y)=5/2

2x + 2y = 600 ---------------- >

x + y = 300

x y = 240

----------------------2x = 540

x = 270

y = 300 270 = 30

speed of the plane: x = 270 , speed of the wind : y = 30

4. How many gallons of 20% alcohol solution and 50% alcohol solution must be mixed to get 9 gallons of

30% alcohol solution?

a.

b.

c.

d.

Answer: d

Solution:

(0.20)(x) + (0.50)(9-x) = (0.30)(9)

2x +45 5x = 27

-3x = -18

x = 6 gallons -------- > amount of 20% alcohol solution

y = 9 x = 3 gallons --------- > amount of 50% alcohol solution

5. How many different second order determinant can be formed from four different numbers?
