–2√9 =   –6           5             -8           1             2*(3)=-6

√a2 =     A             5             -8           1             a X a

5√36 =   30           15           -5           0             5 X 6 = 30

3√7 + 8√7 =         11√7      8√2        3√3        2√14

 

First you must add or subtract each individual square root. Once this has been done you will find the square root of each integer. Finally once you have the square root of both integers, you will then add or subtract the two to get your answer.

 

Example: √141 - 116 - √4

1. First subtract 141-116; your new problem will look like the following: √25 - √4

2. Next take the square root of both √25 & √4; your new problem will look like the following: 5-2

3. The final step is to calculate the simple problem 5-2=3

A bus traveling at an average rate of 50 kilometers per hour made the trip to town in 6 hours. If it had traveled at 45 kilometers per hour, how many more minutes would it have taken to make the trip?  40 MINUTES LONGER.          15 MINUTES LONGER.    44 MINUTES LONGER.    23 MINUTES LONGER.               "distance = rate × time or d = r × t

6 2/3 – 6 = 2/3 hours = 40 min

"             Mechanical Comprehension

A bus and a car leave the same place and traveled in opposite directions. If the bus is traveling at 50 mph and the car is traveling at 55 mph, in how many hours will they be 210 miles apart?       2 HRS.   1 HR. AND 50 MIN               3 HRS.   4 HRS. AND 30 MIN          "distance = rate × time or d = r × t

t=210/105 =2 hours

"             Mechanical Comprehension

Tom took a drive to town at an average rate of 40 mph. In the evening, he drove back at 30 mph. If he spent a total of 7 hours traveling, what is the distance traveled by John?     240 MILES           240 KILOMETERS       24 MILES             24 KILOMETERS"40t = 30(7 – t)

Use distributive property

40t = 210 – 30t

Isolate variable t

40t + 30t = 210

70t = 210

T=210/70 = 3

The next step: The distance traveled by Tom to town is

40t = 120

The distance traveled by Tom to go back is also 120

So, the total distance traveled by Tom is 240

The distance traveled by Tom is 240 miles.

Alaska is a U.S. state in the northwest area of North American. The Yukon Territory borders Alaska on the east and British Columbia and the Arctic Ocean borders it to the north. The Pacific Ocean borders Alaska to the south and west and Russia is just across the Bering Strait. Alaska has been occupied by indigenous peoples for thousands of years but only occupied by westerners for about 150 years. In March of 1867 the United States purchased Alaska from Russia for the amount of 7.2 million dollars. Many wanted to explore Alaska for its potentially vast natural resources. Alaska is known for its oil, natural gas, and fishing industries as well as a relatively large tourist industry. Alaska was admitted as the 49th state into the U.S. on January 3rd, 1959. Alaska is the 4th least populous and the least densely populated of the 50 United States. Alaska is by far the biggest of all 50 U.S. States.  What is the least populous state in the United States?

Baseball is a sport played with a bat, ball, and a glove. A regulation baseball game is played between two teams. Each team consists of nine players. Each team has nine at bats and play defense, also known as the field, nine times. Each team bats and fields once per inning, there are nine innings in a regulation game.  Baseball evolved from older bat-and-ball games. Many believe the first baseball game was played in England, albeit a different version from the one we know today. Baseball was brought to the United States by immigrants in the 18th Century. In the 19th Century baseball became known as America’s National Sport or ‘Americas Game’ Baseball has now gained popularity all around the world especially Central America, South America and Japan.  The top level baseball league in the United States is Major League Baseball or the MLB.
