Which of the following is an improper fraction?
\({7 \over 5} \)
A rational number (or fraction) is represented as a ratio between two integers, a and b, and has the form \({a \over b}\) where a is the numerator and b is the denominator. An improper fraction (\({5 \over 3} \)) has a numerator with a greater absolute value than the denominator and can be converted into a mixed number (\(1 {2 \over 3} \)) which has a whole number part and a fractional part.
Which of the following is the formula for power?
\(P = {w \over t}\)
Power is the rate at which work is performed or work per unit time: \(P = {w \over t}\) and is measured in watts (W).
What is (z^{5})^{4}?
To raise a term with an exponent to another exponent, retain the base and multiply the exponents:
(z^{5})^{4}On this circle, line segment CD is the:
radius
A circle is a figure in which each point around its perimeter is an equal distance from the center. The radius of a circle is the distance between the center and any point along its perimeter. A chord is a line segment that connects any two points along its perimeter. The diameter of a circle is the length of a chord that passes through the center of the circle and equals twice the circle's radius (2r).
Which of the following is igneous rock?
granite
The Earth's rocks fall into three categories based on how they're formed. Igneous rock (granite, basalt, obsidian) is formed from the hardening of molten rock (lava), sedimentary rock (shale, sandstone, coal) is formed by the gradual despositing and cementing of rock and other debris, and metamorphic rock (marble, slate, quartzite) which is formed when existing rock is altered though pressure, temperature, or chemical processes.
Which of these is not a type of fat?
cholesterol
Fats come in three types, saturated (meats, shellfish, eggs, milk), monounsaturated (olives, almonds, avocados), and polyunsaturated (vegetable oils).
The dimensions of this cylinder are height (h) = 9 and radius (r) = 1. What is the volume?
The volume of a cylinder is πr^{2}h:
v = πr^{2}h
v = π(1^{2} x 9)
v = 9π
Which of these is a type of Earth's crust?
oceanic
The crust is the Earth's outermost layer and is divided into oceanic and continental types. Oceanic crust is 3 miles (5 km) to 6 miles (10 km) thick and is composed primarily of denser rock. Continental crust is 20 to 30 miles (30 to 50 km) thick and composed primarily of less dense rock. The crust makes up approximately one percent of the Earth's total volume.
