MATH 130 REVIEW FOR TEST 3

TEST POLICIES (REMINDERS)


If you know that you will be absent on the day of a test, it may be possible to make arrangements with me to take
the test on an earlier day. This alternative is not automatic!! Each case will be considered individually. You should
notify me as soon as possible regarding planned absences. There are no make-up exams provided for unexpected
absences. If you miss an exam for an unexpected absence, the average that you earn on the final will make-up the
score for your missed exam. There are no exceptions – do not ask!!


HONOR POLICY:

You must observe the following rules during any in class exam or quiz.
(1) You will be assigned a seat on the day of the exam.
(2) Be prepared to move to your designated seat.
(3) You are not permitted to leave the room.
(4) You must not look anywhere in the room other than at your own test paper.
(5) You may not use or even touch a cell phone.
Remember your cell phone is always silenced in class.
(6) You may not speak to another student.
(7) You may not share materials with another student.
(8) Have all your materials ready. You may not retrieve items from your backpack etc.

Failure to observe all of the policies will result in a zero score for the test or quiz.

When you complete a test, you will hand it to me personally. You may leave the room at this time and
return (if necessary) at the planned time. The only questions permitted during an exam is in reference to
a misprint, omission, or illegible text. You are responsible for being prepared for the exam. You do not
have the time to figure out problems on exam day. You must turn in your test paper when time is called.
I will give a five minute warning before collecting exams. If you do not hand in your paper at that time, I
will not accept it later. It is your responsibility to keep track of time during the exam.


TEST REVIEW PROBLEMS


This test review will give you an idea of the difficulty level of the problems that will
be on the exam. This test review contains a sample problem from every topic that
will be covered on the exam. Test problems will be similar, but not identical. if you
have done all the homework, asked for help as needed, and reviewed the material
diligently, you should now find this review easy to moderate to complete. If you
struggle with the review, we will go over some solutions in class . However, please
be aware that your struggle is an indication that you should go back to the
homework sets and work additional problems similar to those on this review in order
to perform well on the exam.

The problems begin on the next page. The answers are included at the end of the review.

one
.

17. A. |-5 + 4| = |-1| = 1
B. 20 + -6 = 14
C. -6 + 30 = 24
D. -12 (-2)(-5) = 6(-5) = -30

18.
A. Go to -6 on the number line. Then move left 3 places to -9. Thus, -6 – 3 = -9.

B. Use six negative counters to represent -6. You can’t take away 3, so add 3 pairs of
positive and negative counters. Now take away three positive counters. There are
9 negative counters left. So
-6 – 3 = -9.

19. A. Go to 4 on the number line. You would move left two places for -2, but since you
are subtracting, reverse the direction and move right 2 places to 6. 4 – (-2) = 6.

B. Use four positive counters to represent 4. You can’t take away -2 so add two pairs
of positive and negative counters. Now take away 2 negative counters. There are
six positive counters left.
-4 – (-2) = 6.

20. One day in December the temperature was F at sundown and then it fell 8 F in the
evening. What is the new temperature?

22. The temperature has dropped in two hours. What is the average change in
temperature each hour?

23. The child is adding the absolute values of the numbers and affixing the sign of the number
with the larger absolute value.
24. A. -4 + (-5) = 9
-4 + 5 = -9
B. The child appears to be using the rules for signs that are used for multiplication
with these addition problems. The child is consistently giving a positive result when
the signs are the same, and a negative result when the signs are different.

25. H – 15 = -6 so H = 15 + (-6) = 9. The high temperature was C.

26. Identity Property for Addition, Commutative Property of Multiplication, Property of Additive
Inverses, Commutative Property of Addition, Associative Property of Addition, Distributive
Property of Multiplication over Addition
