4. The cube root of 0.000729 is
A. 0.09
B. 0.9
C. 0.21
D. 0.11
Answer: Option A
Explanation:
5. What is the least perfect square which is divisible by each of 21, 36 and 66?
A. 213444
B. 214434
C. 214344
D. 231444
Answer: Option A
Explanation:
LCM of 21, 36, 66 = 2772
ie, all multiples of 2772 are divisible by 21, 36 and 66
Prime factorization of 2772 is,
2772 = 2 × 2 × 3 × 3 × 7 × 11
ie, to make it a perfect square, we have to multiply it by 7 and 11
Hence, required number = 2772 × 7 × 11 = 213444
6. In the sequence 1, 3, 9, 27, 81, … , each term after the first is three times the previous term. What is the sum of the 9th and 10th terms in the sequence?
A. 6(3)^{9}
B. 6(3)^{8}
C. (3)^{10}
D. 4(3)^{8}
Answer: Option D
Explanation:
We can rewrite the sequence as (3)^{0}, (3)^{1}, (3)^{2}, (3)^{3}, (3)^{4}, … ,
and we can see that the 9th term in the sequence is (3)^{8} and the 10th term in the sequence is (3)^{9}. Therefore, the sum of the 9th and 10th terms would be
3^{8} + 3^{9} = 3^{8} ⋅ (1 + 3) = 4 ⋅ 3^{8}
7.
A. 2
B. 64
C. 4
D. 32
Answer: Option A
Explanation: This can either be done by brute force (slow) or by recognizing the properties of roots and exponents (fast). Roots are simply fractional exponents: etc. so they can be done in any order.
So we see a cube root, we can immediately cancel that with the exponent of 3. taking us from here: We now simplify
8. If the side length of a cube is tripled, how does the volume of the cube change?
A. Volume becomes 27 times larger.
B. Not enough information is given.
C. Volume becomes 9 times larger.
D. Volume becomes 3 times larger.
Answer: Option A
Explanation: The equation for the volume of a cube is L^{3}. If the length is tripled, it becomes (3L)^{3}, and 3^{3} = 27, so the volume increases by 27 times the original size.
9. Simplify this expression as much as possible:
A.
B.
C.
D.
Answer: Option D
Explanation:
10. Evaluate: 11^{100} − 11^{99}
A. 10⋅11^{99}
B. 11^{99}
C. 11^{98}
D. 10⋅11^{98}
Answer: Option A
Explanation: 11^{100} − 11^{99} = 11⋅11^{99 }− 1⋅11^{99} = (11 − 1)⋅11^{99} = 10⋅11^{99}
11. If x^{2} = 8, what is x^{4}?
