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.

2*x* + 4 - 1 = *x*

2*x*(4) - 1 = *x*

2*x* + 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.

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*)

3 - *x* ≥ 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. The sum of two different numbers is greater than their ratio.

2(*x* - *y*) > *xy*

2 + *x* + *y* > *xy*

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.

2(*h* + *l*) = 100 and 2*hl* > 50

2(*h* + *l*) = 100 and *hl* ≥ 50

Q. 10. Five percent of *x* is not greater than three percent of the difference of *x* and two.

0.5*x* > 0.3(*x* - 2)

0.5*x* ≤ 0.3(*x* - 2)

0.05*x* > 0.03(*x* - 2)

0.05*x* ≤ 0.03(*x* - 2)

5% blah blah blah 3% blah blah blah *x* + 2 blah blah blah
