21.) When $P (x)$ is divided by $x^2 + 2$, the quotient and remainder are both $x$. What is $P(-1)$?

Solution
If we divide 5 by 3, then we get a quotient of 1 and a remainder of 2. If we generalize latex $a$ the dividend, $b$ as the divisor, $q$ as the quotient and $r$ as the remainder, we can form the equation Continue reading “Grade 8 MTAP 2015 Elimination Questions with Solutions – Part 3”

1.) Find the average of the numbers -1, 3/2, and 1/2.

Solution

(- 1 + 3/2 + 1/2)/3 = 1/3

2.) How much larger is 2/3 than 1/6?

Solution
2/3 – 1/6 = 4/6 – 1/6 = 3/6 = 1/2

3.) If one ream contains 500 sheets of paper and a sheet of paper is 0.3 mm thick, how thick is one ream in meters?

Solution

500 × 0.3mm = 150 mm = 0.15m
4.) What is the second largest number among numbers $\sqrt{2}$, 3/2 , 1.4, $\sqrt{3}$ and 1.6?
$\sqrt{2}$ is around 1.41 and $\sqrt{3}$ is around 1.7.
$1:2.54 = x: 1, x = 0.39$
