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) (answer)
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
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.



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.


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
