## Answer Key

**1. B.** Convert the percentage to the fraction 65/100, then simplify by dividing numerator and denominator by 5.

**2. D.** Be sure that your factors will convert back to the polynomial when multiplied according to FOIL.

**3. B.** Multiply 3 by .6, then convert into a fraction.

**4. C.** The formula for slope is y = mx + b, in which m is slope.

**5. A.**

**6. A.** The larger number in the thousandths place indicates that A is larger.

**7. C.** Both A and B are equal to 4.

**8. D.** It is impossible to determine how many points Roger scored in each of the quarters of the second half.

**9. A.** The lowest possible value for x and y still adds up to more than 7.

**10. D.** The value for B is equivalent to x18. However, depending on what x is, x17 may be greater, equal to, or less than x18.
