HESI A2 Math Practice Test 2023
1. A female ran a 24-mile course. Her first 6 miles took 1 hour, the second set of 6 miles took 1.2 hours, the third set of 6 miles took 1.5 hours, and the fourth set of 6 miles took 1.6 hours. How long did it take her to complete the course?
- A. 5.3 hours
- B. 4.5 hours
- C. 6 hours
- D. 7 hours
Correct answer: A
Rationale: To find the total time taken, add the time for each segment: 1 hour + 1.2 hours + 1.5 hours + 1.6 hours = 5.3 hours. Therefore, it took her 5.3 hours to complete the course. The other choices are incorrect because they do not accurately reflect the cumulative time calculated based on the given information.
2. What is the solution to the equation 4y - 6 = 14? Solve for y.
- A. 4
- B. 5
- C. 6
- D. 7
Correct answer: B
Rationale: To solve the equation 4y - 6 = 14 for y, isolate y by adding 6 to both sides: 4y = 14 + 6 => 4y = 20. Then, divide by 4 to solve for y: y = 20 รท 4 = 5. Therefore, the correct answer is 5. Choice A is incorrect as it does not represent the correct solution to the equation. Choice C is incorrect as it is not the solution obtained after correctly solving the equation. Choice D is incorrect as it is not the correct solution to the given equation.
3. A plan for a shed is drawn on a 1:10 scale. If the roof of the real shed measures 4 feet by 5 feet, what were the measurements on the plan?
- A. 80 inches by 100 inches
- B. 40 inches by 50 inches
- C. 4.8 inches by 6 inches
- D. 4 inches by 5 inches
Correct answer: B
Rationale: When the real shed roof measures 4 feet by 5 feet, on a 1:10 scale plan, the measurements on the plan would be 1/10 of the real measurements. Therefore, the correct answer is 40 inches by 50 inches since it represents 1/10 of 4 feet by 5 feet. Choice A (80 inches by 100 inches) is incorrect because it is equivalent to the real shed measurements, not the scaled plan. Choice C (4.8 inches by 6 inches) is incorrect as it does not reflect the 1:10 scale reduction. Choice D (4 inches by 5 inches) is incorrect because it does not consider the scale factor of 1:10.
4. What is the result of adding 1/2 + 4/5?
- A. 1 3/10
- B. 1/2/2024
- C. 1 2/5
- D. 1 1/5
Correct answer: A
Rationale: To add fractions, you need a common denominator. In this case, the common denominator is 10. So, 1/2 + 4/5 = 5/10 + 8/10 = 13/10 = 1 3/10. Therefore, the correct answer is A: 1 3/10. Choice B, 1/2/2024, is incorrect as it does not represent the sum of the fractions given. Choice C, 1 2/5, is incorrect as it does not match the sum calculated. Choice D, 1 1/5, is incorrect as it does not reflect the correct sum of the fractions provided.
5. A car travels 60 miles per hour for 2.5 hours. How far does the car travel?
- A. 120 miles
- B. 150 miles
- C. 180 miles
- D. 170 miles
Correct answer: A
Rationale: To find the total distance traveled, multiply the speed of the car (60 miles per hour) by the time it traveled (2.5 hours): 60 miles/hour * 2.5 hours = 150 miles. Therefore, the correct answer is A. Choices B, C, and D are incorrect as they do not correctly calculate the total distance traveled by the car.
