The College Entry-Level Placement Test (CPT) for mathematics will be used to

determine your placement into a mathematic class. The test begins at the elementary

algebra level. If your algebra skills are strong enough, you will be branched into the

college-level mathematics test for course placement. If your algebra skills are weak, you

will be branched down into the arithmetic section of the test. The arithmetic portion of

the test will measure your ability to work with whole numbers, fractions, decimals,

percents, and word problems that can be solved without using algebra. If your arithmetic

skills are strong enough you will be placed into Elementary Algebra; if not you will be

placed into Pre-Algebra.

Placement

The attached sample tests are representative of the type and style of questions that you

will see on the CPT. If you have difficulty with a type of question, such as a fraction

question, you should study that concept more thoroughly. The Learning Support Centers

and libraries on each campus will have additional textbooks available for you to use to

review for the CPT. These tests are intended to function as a review of skills, not a

substitution for knowledge. Simply memorizing how to do these specific problems will

not guarantee that you will pass the CPT.

Good luck as you prepare for this most important placement test.

Arithmetic Review

Read all questions carefully. Make sure you are answering the question that is being

asked. Work problems out completely. Try not to guess.

When estimating round numbers first.

$695 = $700

$999 = $ 1000

$1599 = $1600 Now add $700 + $1000 + $1600 = $3300

To calculate cost per ounce you divide the cost of each product by the

price of each product. Remember to change $ to for equal comparisons.

55 12 = 4.583

75 16 = 4.6875

109 32 = 3.40625

169 48 = 3.52083

The least expensive is the 32 ounce container at 3.40625 per ounce

18.

.17 100

$748 + 52.36 = $800.36

22.

90 + 76 + ?

= 86

86 3 = 166 + ?

258 = 166 + ?

258 166 = 92

You could also do this problem by trial and error.

23.

$3408 $32 = 106.5 Since you cannot purchase part of a ticket the

answer is 106 tickets.

24.

For this problem you must work out each situation. Remember you are

looking for the statement that is NOT true.

.04 = .2 not .02 since .2 .2 = .04 This would be the correct choice.
