II: Word Problems

1) 1. The

5 4 3 2 1

length of a box is five inches less than twice the

width. The height is 4 inches more than three times the width.
The box has a volume of 520 cubic inches. Which of the
following equations

can be used to find the height of the

box?
a. W(2L 5) (3H + 4) = 520
b. W(2W + 5) (3W 4) = 520
2

c. W(2W 5) (3W 4) = 520


d. W(2W 5) (3W + 4) = 520
2) Your classmate was asked to square (2x 3),he answered 4x-9.
Is his answer correct?
a. Yes, because squaring a binomial always produces a binomial
product.
b. Yes, because product rule is correctly applied.
c. No, because squaring a binomial always produces a trinomial
product.
d. No, because the answer must be 4x + 9.
3) The side of a square is x cm long. The length of a rectangle
is 5 cm. longer than the side of the square and the width is
5cm shorter. Which statement is true?
a. the area of the square is greater than the area of the
rectangle.
b. the area of the square is less than the area of the
rectangle
c. the area of the square is equal to the area of the rectangle
d. the relationship cannot be determined from the given
information
4) If a square pool is to be made a rectangle such that the
length is increased by 6 units and the width is decreased by 6
units, what will happen to its area?

36.
36

15 x2 y 3+ 10 x 4 y +5 xy

as

Did Liza factor it correctly?

a. No, because 5xy is not the common factor.


3

b. Yes, because the last term is cancelled out.


c. Yes, there exist a common factor on all terms.
d. No, because the last term when factored is 1 and should not
be omitted.
6) Anne squared 3x + 4y as

9 x 2+16 y 2 , which of the following

statement is correct with the answer of your classmate?


a. The answer is correct, because to square a binomial
distribute the exponent
b. The answer is wrong, because the product of squaring a
binomial is a trinomial.
c. The answer is correct, because the product of squaring a
binomial is another binomial
d. The answer is wrong, because to square a binomial is to
multiply the expression by 2.
7) If a square pool is to be made a rectangle such that the
length is increased by 6 units and the width is decreased by 6
units, what will happen to its area?

a. The area will increase by 12


b. The area will decrease by 12
c. The area will increase by 36.
d. The area will decrease by 36
8) Anne squared 3x + 4y as 9x2 + 16y2, which of the following statement
is correct with the answer of your classmate?
a. The answer is correct, because to square a binomial distribute
the exponent

b. The answer is wrong, because the product of squaring a binomial


is a trinomial.
c. The answer is correct, because the product of squaring a binomial
is another binomial
d. The answer is wrong, because to square a binomial is to multiply
the expression by 2.

9) The volume of a certain gas will increase as the pressure


applied to it decreases. This relationship can be modelled
using the formula:
(a)

V2

V1P
p2

where V1 is the initial volume of the gas, P1 is the initial


pressure, P2 is the final pressure, and the V2 is the final
volume of the gas. If the initial volume of the gas is 500 ml and
the initial pressure is 12 atm, what is the final volume of the
gas if the final pressure is 5 atm?

a. 10ml
b. 50ml
c. 90ml
d. 130ml
