PSAT Math Practice Online - Practice questions

Question 1 :

If 2000/2x  =  10, then what is √x?

Solution :

2000/2x  =  10

1000/x  =  10

x  =  1000/10  

 x  =  100 

Taking square roots on both sides, we get

√x  =  √100

√x  =  10

Question 2 :

If x = 9, y = -9 and z = -1, what is the value of yz + √x + yz - √x ?

Solution :

First let us simplify

  yz + √x + yz - √x 

=  2yz

By applying the value of y and z, we get

  =  2(-9) (-1)

  =  18

Question 3 :

1 dollar  =  0.5 pillets

4 coss  =  1 dollar

Lindsey has $20 to spend. She needs to buy exactly 2 pillets. She spends the remaining amount buying coss. How many coss does Lindsey purchase ?

Solution :

1 dollar  =  0.5 pillets ----(1)

Lindsey wants to buy 2 pillets, 

0.5/2  =  4

Multiplying (1) by 4, we get

4 dollar  =  2 pillets

So, she spends 4 dollar to purchase 2 pillets. The remaining amount that she has  =  20 - 4  =  16

Cost of 4 coss  =  1 dollar 

Number of coss purchased for 16 dollars 

  =  16(4)

  =  64 coss

Question 4 :

√100 ÷ √25  =  

Solution :

  =  √100 ÷ √25

  =  √(100/25)

  =  √4

  =  2

Question 5 :

If x = -8, what is the value of (1/2) |4x - 4|?

Solution :

  =  (1/2) |4x - 4|

Applying the value of x in the expression, we get

  =  (1/2) |4(-8) - 4|

  =  (1/2) |-32-4|

  =  (1/2) (36)

  =  18

Hence the answer is 18.

Question 6 :

Triangle NPQ is an equilateral triangle. If its perimeter is 27, what is the length of NP + NQ ?

Solution :

To find the perimeter of the triangle, we have to find the sum of all the sides.

NP + NQ + PQ  =  27

x + x + x  =  27

3x  =  27

x  =  27/3  =  9

NP + PQ  =  9 + 9  =  18

Question 7 : 

If 40% of x is 160, what is x ?

Solution :

40% of x  =  160

(40/100)  x  =  160

x  =  160 (100/40)

x  =  400

Question 8 :

When d is divided by 7, the remainder is 5, what is the remainder when d + 1 is divided by 7 ?

Solution :

Let d = 12

Here we choose 12, because it is greater than 7, when we divide 12 by 7, we get the remainder 5.

Then d + 1  =  12 + 1  =  13

By dividing this d + 1 by 7, we get 6(5 + 1) as remainder.

Hence the answer is 6.

Note : The number chosen should be 5 more than the multiple of 7.

Question 9 :

In the figure above, O is the center of the square. What is the area of the square ?

Solution :

Side length of square is 4 units.

Area of square  =  a2

  =  42

  =  16  square units.

Question 10 :

If O is the midpoint of PW, then what is the distance of OE?

Solution :

P(-13, 0)  W(-3, 0)   

O is the midpoint of PW

  =  (x1 + x2)/2, (y1 + y2)/2

  =  (-13-3)/2, (0+0)/2

  =  O (-8, 0)

E (3, 0)

OE  =  √(x2 - x1)2 + (y2 - y1)2

OE  =  √(-8-3)2 + (0-0)2

OE  =  √(-11)2

   =  11
