Q. 1. Select the best mathematical translation for the following statement: One-fourth of x is not more than eight.

Q. 2. Select the best mathematical translation for the following statement: The difference between y and 6 is greater than the quotient of 6 and y.

6-y kicks 's butt
Q. 3. Select the best mathematical translation for the following statement: A number doubled and then combined with four is one less than that same number.

2x + 4 – 1 = x
2x(4) – 1 = x
2x + 4 = x – 1
2(x + 4) + 1 = x
Archduke Francis Ferdinand. Wait, what was the question?
Q. 4. Select the best mathematical translation for the following statement: The sum of a number and half that same number is at most two.

x + 2x ≤ 2
This + That = Something
Q. 5. Select the best mathematical translation for the following statement: Three less than a number is greater than or equal to 25% of that number.

3 – x ≥ 0.25(x)
x – 3 ≥ 25(x)
3 – x ≥ 25(x)
x – 3 ≥ 0.25(x)
3 x ≥ the score I got on my last algebra quiz
Q. 6. Select the best mathematical translation for the following statement: The total of three copies of x and three-sevenths of x is eleven.

Q. 7. Select the best mathematical translation for the following statement: One-seventh of one-fifth of the difference of x and 4 yields x quadrupled.

Sorry, I only answer questions with fewer than two fractions in them.
Q. 8. Express an inequality showing the sum of two different numbers is greater than their ratio.

2(x - y) > xy
2 + x + y > xy
x + y > Donna Summer's "On the Ratio"
Q. 9. A rectangle has height h and length l, as shown below. The perimeter of the rectangle must be 100 and the area of the rectangle must be at least 50. Express this as an equation and an inequality.

h + l = 100 and 2hl ≥ 50
h + l = 100 and hl < 50
2(h + l) = 100 and 2hl > 50
2(h + l) = 100 and hl ≥ 50
h = l Oh, if only it could be that simple.
Q. 10. Five percent of x is not greater than three percent of the difference of x and two.

Express this as an inequality.

0.5x > 0.3(x – 2)
0.5x ≤ 0.3(x – 2)
0.05x > 0.03(x – 2)
0.05x ≤ 0.03(x – 2)
5% blah blah blah 3% blah blah blah x + 2 blah blah blah
