HESI A2 Math Practice Test 2023
1. What is the result of dividing 4 7/8 by 1 1/6?
- A. 4 5/28
- B. 4 7/8
- C. 5 8/14
- D. 5 3/28
Correct answer: A
Rationale: To divide mixed numbers, convert them to improper fractions and then multiply by the reciprocal of the divisor. Here, 4 7/8 = 39/8 and 1 1/6 = 7/6. Dividing 39/8 by 7/6 gives 39/8 ÷ 7/6 = 39/8 * 6/7 = 234/56 = 4 5/28. Therefore, the correct answer is A. Choices B, C, and D are incorrect as they do not represent the correct result of dividing 4 7/8 by 1 1/6.
2. How many milligrams are in 3.4 grams?
- A. 340 mg
- B. 3,400 mg
- C. 34,000 mg
- D. 3400 mg
Correct answer: B
Rationale: To convert grams to milligrams, you need to multiply by 1,000 because there are 1,000 milligrams in 1 gram. Therefore, to find out how many milligrams are in 3.4 grams, you multiply 3.4 by 1,000 which equals 3,400 mg. Choices A, C, and D are incorrect because they do not correctly convert grams to milligrams.
3. Solve for x: 3x + 9 = 0.
- A. x = -3
- B. x = -3
- C. x = 1
- D. x = 0
Correct answer: B
Rationale: To solve the equation 3x + 9 = 0, first, isolate the variable x. Subtract 9 from both sides to get 3x = -9. Then, divide by 3 to solve for x, giving x = -3. Therefore, the correct answer is B. Choice A, x = -3, is the correct solution. Choices C and D are incorrect as they do not satisfy the equation when substituted back into it.
4. Divide: 11 ÷ 5 =
- A. 1.424
- B. 1.622
- C. 2.2
- D. 2
Correct answer: C
Rationale: To divide 11 by 5, you need to perform the division operation. 11 divided by 5 equals 2.2. Therefore, the correct answer is C. Choice A (1.424) and Choice B (1.622) are incorrect as they do not result from the division of 11 by 5. Choice D (2) is close but not accurate, as the exact result of 11 divided by 5 is 2.2.
5. Reduce 5 & 3/4 divided by 1/2.
- A. 5 & 1/2
- B. 2 & 3/8
- C. 18
- D. 11 & 1/2
Correct answer: D
Rationale: To divide mixed numbers, convert them to improper fractions. 5 & 3/4 = 23/4 and 1/2 = 2/1. So, 23/4 ÷ 2/1 = 23/4 * 1/2 = 23/8 = 2 & 7/8. Therefore, 5 & 3/4 divided by 1/2 reduces to 11 & 1/2. Choices A, B, and C are incorrect because they do not represent the correct result of dividing 5 & 3/4 by 1/2.
