```MOCK EXAM 1 β Fall 2015
Directions: Be prepared to explain your solution and show your work. This is only a small sample of problems
from the topics you studied in MyMathLab modules 1 & 2, and the classroom activities from round 1. If you
make any mistakes on this mock exam than you have identified a weakness and you should go to your
classroom activities and MML for further practice on similar problem. If you donβt you may get that type of
problem wrong on the actual exam.
Computational & Conceptual questions
1. Give an example of the associative property; the distributive property; the commutative property.
2. Name the property illustrated in each equation below:
a. 3 + (π₯ + 6) = 3 + (6 + π₯)
b. 3 + (6 + π₯) = (3 + 6) + π₯
c. 9 + π₯ = π₯ + 9
3. Name the base and the exponent in each of the following, then write in expanded form and evaluate.
a. (β5)2
b. β52
c. β(β3)2
d. β(β3)4
4. Will the sum of 4 and β9 be positive or negative? Why?
5. When given an expression containing both multiplication and division, which operation should be
performed first?
