post only math here (just to make everyone's life a little easier)

i hate the q/cs. was the first one A? does anyone else remember some of the first few q/cs? damn i hate those. anyone also remember ANYTHING else from the math, whether u got it right or wrong?

Please post all the qualitative comparisons...I want to make an official list...I can't remember anything...HELP!!!

Math section 2 experimental?

By Jm2006 (Jm2006) on Saturday, March 27, 2004 - 07:34 pm: Edit |

okay i'll see if i can start.

1) y is 3 less than x (something to that effect?)

column a: x

column b: y+2

the answer was A

By Phantom (Phantom) on Saturday, March 27, 2004 - 07:38 pm: Edit |

*r^2-t^2=1 was D.

*palindrome one = C

15) graph with shaded region, line l was B

(y-coordinate > x-coordinate)

if i think of more, ill post them

About the question with the 3-D figure consisting of polygonal faces, I know now that the answer was 4. Does anyone remember what letter that answer was? I'm pretty sure I put C.

By Modestmouse (Modestmouse) on Saturday, March 27, 2004 - 07:42 pm: Edit |

It was four. I have proof, lol. TETRAHEDRON! I'm not sure. I think it might have been B. Because weren't the choices:

A. 3

B. 4

C. 5

D. 6

E. 7

Heck. Maybe it was different. I just know I messed up my verbal. I mean. WTF. How am I supposed to know what abstemious is?

haithman, we're just trying to remember every q/c, ok?

Bump this baby UP! I wanna know the QCs...that screwed me OVER.

By Eastsoldier (Eastsoldier) on Saturday, March 27, 2004 - 09:48 pm: Edit |

I heard - from the examiner - there were several versions of the test

But I get this feeling there weren't

Can anyone fill me in?

By Scion (Scion) on Saturday, March 27, 2004 - 09:51 pm: Edit |

hell yeah they were. i probably looked like i was cheating cuz i looked over at someone who was using a calculator when i was doing a section 2 verbal. so HELL YEAH this time they had multiple versions. by the way, anyone have the answer choices to the math m/c about the grad reqs?

By Auburnwareagle (Auburnwareagle) on Saturday, March 27, 2004 - 10:33 pm: Edit |

i had a section 2 verbal as well........talk about shocked when i opened my book and saw a double passage in section 1

By Crypto86 (Crypto86) on Saturday, March 27, 2004 - 11:59 pm: Edit |

Nice - all the tough QCs i got right. I think I got all of those right. Ha - I can get the r^2-t^2 = 1 right easily yet I really had to look at number 1. Weird.

By Simplyloved (Simplyloved) on Sunday, March 28, 2004 - 12:18 am: Edit |

my answer for the multiple choice grad request thingies was 16. G+B=156 g=2B, 3b=156 b=52, b=104, the necessary units were 120.. she needed 16 more units to graduate

By Bcrichsolo (Bcrichsolo) on Sunday, March 28, 2004 - 12:19 am: Edit |

does any1 remember what the last grid in math was...i heard it was 1/3 but i dont remember the problem

By Crypto86 (Crypto86) on Sunday, March 28, 2004 - 12:20 am: Edit |

Yes - it was 1/3.

Why is the answer B for number 15 (y coordinate>x coordinate)

By Sarang (Sarang) on Sunday, March 28, 2004 - 01:55 am: Edit |

hows about the one the last question (10) of the short math section

sumthing w/

p percent of 1/p equals 1 percent of 1

By Hobbes344 (Hobbes344) on Sunday, March 28, 2004 - 01:57 am: Edit |

Well, I was too lazy so i graphed it and i got .333. Im not sure though.

By Bfjava (Bfjava) on Sunday, March 28, 2004 - 02:21 am: Edit |

mmmm, no!

.333 is the "obvious' answer. considering it was a question towards the end of the section, do you really think it'd be that easy?

Just come up with an example and you'd find the solution. For 1/2 use 6/12 and for 1/3 use 4/12. 4/6 is 2/3 which is 66.7%

By Hobbes344 (Hobbes344) on Sunday, March 28, 2004 - 02:42 am: Edit |

I think we're talking about different problems here. Im talking about... that one that bc = 5, and b = 1 + 1/a that one was .3333 i believe. And for the question that you said, i got 2/3, too. ;)

By Xforce (Xforce) on Sunday, March 28, 2004 - 03:09 am: Edit |

Yea how did u do the r^2 - t^2 = 1 problem. The choices were (A) r^2 ,and (B) t^2

By Scion (Scion) on Sunday, March 28, 2004 - 04:01 am: Edit |

yeah i put C, but A LOT ppl proved it was D.

By Kevinkleinz (Kevinkleinz) on Sunday, March 28, 2004 - 08:41 am: Edit |

Yeah, 'twas D.

1st Case:

Let r = sqrt(2)

Let t = 1

r + t > r - t

2nd Case:

Factor first-- (r + t)(r - t) = 1

Now one possibility is (r + t) = 1/4 and (r - t) = 4

Solving you get 2r = 4 + 1/4

r = 2.125

So t = r - 4 = 2.125 - 4 = -1.875

So in this case, r + t < r - t

Thus, the answer is D.

That problem took me 10 seconds. If you look at it you realize in the origional equation, if you use positive or negative numbers it will come out the same because they are squared. Then you look at the two choices and see that it depends whether they are + or - and its D

By Spright (Spright) on Sunday, March 28, 2004 - 12:48 pm: Edit |

Okay...I shouldn't have thought about the problems I was unsure of as much as I did, because now I realize I probably got them all wrong, but here are two questions:

1.) The a in a triangle = 2^a +2. What is a+1 in a triange? I put 2x'a in a triange,' but now realize that's probably wrong.

2.) The cube that has letters on each face...what letter is across from x? Is it B?

By Gmf05 (Gmf05) on Sunday, March 28, 2004 - 12:51 pm: Edit |

Spright 1. 2/a+1\ - 2

/a+1\ = 2^a+1 + 2...right?

2/a\ = 2(2^a + 2) = 2^a+1 + 4...subtract 2 and you've got 2^a+1 + 2

By Spright (Spright) on Sunday, March 28, 2004 - 12:57 pm: Edit |

sigh...that's what I thought of after I'd already finished the test.

I know this is an annoying thing to ask but, would it be possible (assuming, hah, an 800 verbal) to get a 15-something and still miss around 4 math?

By Haithman (Haithman) on Sunday, March 28, 2004 - 01:10 pm: Edit |

Miss 4 math and you prob have like a 740

By Best_Wr (Best_Wr) on Sunday, March 28, 2004 - 01:10 pm: Edit |

The one about credits needed for graduation.

I said n+2n= 156 or something and the person we are looking for had 2n, which is 104. So I did 156-104, coming up with 52. Is that right?

By Musicbuster007 (Musicbuster007) on Sunday, March 28, 2004 - 01:11 pm: Edit |

Spright

The answer was 2 times /a\

2x 2^a+2

2^(a+1)+2

I think

By Musicbuster007 (Musicbuster007) on Sunday, March 28, 2004 - 01:13 pm: Edit |

Best_WR

Don't do 156-104. 156 is the two ppl's score combined. 120 was the requirement so 120-104 (how many already obtained) = 16

By Spright (Spright) on Sunday, March 28, 2004 - 01:23 pm: Edit |

Musicbuster: That's what's bothering me about it...was the '2' included in what would be affected by the 2^1?

SIgh.. I hate SAT math.

Anyone know on the cube one?

By Spright (Spright) on Sunday, March 28, 2004 - 01:50 pm: Edit |

wait. nevermind. what I wrote about the triangle one didn't make any sense..it should be the 2*triangle - 2, I believe.

By Crypto86 (Crypto86) on Sunday, March 28, 2004 - 01:57 pm: Edit |

Yes - the answer was E

2/a\ - 2

By Flameball63 (Flameball63) on Sunday, March 28, 2004 - 01:59 pm: Edit |

Triangle A should be E...2/a\-z...because, you plug in numbers, and ONLY E worked. Try it.

/a\=2^a+2

use 3=10

/a+1\=4=18

Only On E...did the answer came out like that...

2(10)-2=18...(with every other number, it works out too...) So, I conclude, the answer was definitely E.

By Haruhara (Haruhara) on Sunday, March 28, 2004 - 03:15 pm: Edit |

what about the cube one with the X face thing, i put B for that one

By Bcrichsolo (Bcrichsolo) on Sunday, March 28, 2004 - 03:18 pm: Edit |

the cube was B i think... the triangle was definatly 2/a\-2

melissamelissa, it was 9887 (9998-111)

By Scion (Scion) on Sunday, March 28, 2004 - 03:32 pm: Edit |

and to concur, it WAS -2 for the last m/c of the test w/ the triangle defined operation. and

What was the complete question with the grad? Can anyone recall the COMPLETE question? I am pretty sure I had 16...but then, one day after, my amnesia is officially kicking in, and I am right now paranoid. Can SOME! PLLLEEEEAAASSSEEE frame the whole grad question!!!!!

john has twice the number of credits as jane does. they have 156 credits altogether. how MANY MORE CREDITS does john need to graduate (assuming 120 credits for graduation)? answer is 16.

hey flameball, that amnesia is kicking in here too.

By Musicbuster007 (Musicbuster007) on Sunday, March 28, 2004 - 04:13 pm: Edit |

crap... yeah the triangle thing was E... I forgot that the 2 for be distributed over to the left over +2, leaving 4, so we'd have to subtract 2... noooo!

By Songster87 (Songster87) on Sunday, March 28, 2004 - 06:05 pm: Edit |

Hey, does anyone know if 12 was an answer choice to the 120-credits one? I know I solved it correctly, and I know I picked a number in the teens, but for some reason, I vaguely remember picking 12. But...that wasn't a choice, correct?

My memory's all fragmented so if 12 wasn't a choice, then I definitely picked 16. =P

By Songster87 (Songster87) on Sunday, March 28, 2004 - 07:44 pm: Edit |

Or, actually, does anyone know if 16 was choice A in the 120-credits question?

o god songster, this sucks. im thinking the same way u r. i coulda sworn i got the answer, but i mightve made a stupid careless mistake...

how many times have u taken the sats?

can someone explain the square rectangle thing? i've heard numbers from 38-44...seems like most say it's 44.

can anyone clarify this?

By Billiam2 (Billiam2) on Monday, March 29, 2004 - 10:01 pm: Edit |

I'll clarify:

The answer is 44.

By Blahdude (Blahdude) on Monday, March 29, 2004 - 10:15 pm: Edit |

the credits question:

person B has twice as many credits as person A and both had a total of 156..you need 120 to graduate so how many more does person B need?

3x=156

x=52

person B has 2 x 52 = 104

so 120-104= 16...answer is A

i got 44 on the square rectangle one too

what about the a.b.c thing againg? bc=5 and wutever? wut was the Q again

By Aruben537 (Aruben537) on Wednesday, March 31, 2004 - 09:15 pm: Edit |

For the problem r^2-t^2=1, I am a little confused on how the answer would be D. I believe the choices were (A) r^2 ,and (B) t^2.

Since there can't be negatives or anything, r^2 must be bigger...or so i think...in the proof given by Kevinkleinz, it is proven that r+t can be both greater than or less than r-t, but in both of his examples, r^2 is still greater than t^2.

So I am just confused as to if there is another proof, or if someone posted something wrong possibly

Also, I am really hoping for the 800 in math, and so far this is the only problem I know of that I could have gotten wrong (i put A), so with the scales is it still possible to get an 800 while missing one. Thank you

By Kevinkleinz (Kevinkleinz) on Wednesday, March 31, 2004 - 11:18 pm: Edit |

No, the columns were not r^2 and t^2. Column A was r+t and column B was r-t. And so, the answer was D.

There is a series in which each number is one more than the reciprocal of the previous number.

a=?, b=(1/a)+1, c=(1/b)+1, and bc=5

The question was to solve for a.

It came out to =1/3, and b=4, c=1.25
