In a basketball game, the number of successful shots **S** that a player makes for each attempt **A** can be modeled by the equation **S=0.5A+1**.
**Based on this equation, how many more successful shots can the player expect to make, on average, if she makes 10 more attempts in a game?**

1

1

**1**. Therefore, if the number of attempts is increased by

**10**, the number of successful shots will increase by

**0.5(10) = 5**on average.

A group of high school students were surveyed about their future educational plans.

The results of the survey are shown in the table below:
**Highest Education Level Student Is Planning to Complete / Number of Students**

Complete a Technical Program: 18

Complete an Associate's Degree: 9

Complete a Bachelor's Degree: 32

Complete a Master's Degree or Higher: 4
**If a student from this survey is randomly selected, what is the probability that the student plans to complete an associate's degree or a bachelor's degree?**

0.1429

0.1429

0.1429

0.1429

**18 + 9 + 32 + 4 = 63**; therefore, the probability that a student will complete one or the other degree is

An airport concourse offers a WiFi connection for **\**5$ plus **\**2$ for every **15** minutes.
**If y represents the total cost and x represents the number of 15-minute intervals, which of the following linear equations best describes the given situation?**

y = 7x + 5

y = 7x + 5

y = 7x + 5

y = 7x + 5

**is a fixed cost that does not include the number of**15$-minute intervals. The 2$ is applied for each

**1**5-minute interval; therefore, it is multiplied by the value of

**x**.

**Which of the following expressions is equivalent to (x + 12)(-7 + 9x)?**

9x^{2} +115x-84

9x^{2} +115x-84

9x^{2} +115x-84

9x^{2} +115x-84

**9x**.

**If the base has a length of 9 meters, what is its height?**

3$ meters

3$ meters

3$ meters

3$ meters

**A = bh**where

**b = 9**and

**A = 72**. Using these values,

**72 = 9h**and

**h = 8**.

**The following table shows values of a function g(x) for selected values of x:**

x | 0 | 1 | 2 |

g(x) | 8 | 10 | 12 |

If

**g(x**) and each of the functions below were graphed, which function would represent a line with a slope that is the same as the slope of the line represented by

**g(x)**?

m(x)=5x+60

m(x)=5x+60

m(x)=5x+60

m(x)=5x+60

**g(x)**is

**2**while the slopes of the given answer options are represented by the coefficients of

**x**.

**To the nearest tenth of a centimeter, what is the height of a cylinder with a volume of 2 cubic centimeters and a radius of 0.3 centimeters?**

0.6

0.6

0.6

**V = pi r**with given values for volume and height yields

^{2}h**2= pi(0.3)**, which is equivalent to .

^{2}hA sauce recipe requires **2x1/2 ** cups of vegetable stock for every **1/2** cup of soy sauce used. A restaurant prepares **24** cups of this sauce recipe.
**How many cups of soy sauce were used?**

4$ cups

4$ cups

4$ cups

**5:1**because . Therefore, if

**x**is the amount of soy sauce used,

**5x + x = 24**, or

**6x = 24**, and

**x = 4**.
