HESI A2 Math Practice Test 2023
1. Add 2\3 + 1\6 + 2\5.
- A. 1 & 7\30
- B. 1 & 1\15
- C. 2\5
- D. 3\4
Correct answer: A
Rationale: To add fractions, find a common denominator (30), which gives 20/30 + 5/30 + 12/30=37/30= 1 7/30
2. A decorative box has a rectangular base (20cm by 15cm) and a hemispherical top with the same diameter as the base. What is the total surface area of the box (excluding the base)?
- A. 825 sq cm
- B. 1075 sq cm
- C. 1325 sq cm
- D. 1575 sq cm
Correct answer: C
Rationale: To find the total surface area of the box excluding the base, calculate the lateral surface area of the rectangular base and the surface area of the hemisphere. The lateral surface area of the rectangular base is 2(20cm x 15cm) = 600 sq cm. The surface area of the hemisphere is 2πr^2, where r is half the diameter of the base, so r = 10cm. Thus, the surface area of the hemisphere is 2π(10cm)^2 = 200π sq cm ≈ 628.32 sq cm. Add the lateral surface area of the base and the surface area of the hemisphere: 600 sq cm + 628.32 sq cm ≈ 1228.32 sq cm. Therefore, the total surface area of the box is approximately 1228.32 sq cm, which is closest to 1325 sq cm (Choice C). Choices A, B, and D are incorrect as they do not represent the accurate calculation of the total surface area of the box.
3. A medication dosage is listed as 1/4 gram. What is the equivalent dosage in milligrams (1 gram = 1000 milligrams)?
- A. 125mg
- B. 250mg
- C. 375mg
- D. 500mg
Correct answer: B
Rationale: 1/4 gram is equivalent to 1/4 * 1000 milligrams (since 1 gram = 1000 milligrams). 1/4 * 1000 = 250 milligrams. Therefore, the equivalent dosage in milligrams is 250mg, which corresponds to option B. The other choices are incorrect because they do not correctly convert 1/4 gram to milligrams using the conversion factor of 1 gram = 1000 milligrams.
4. If 7 is to 9 as x is to 63, find the value of x.
- A. x = 49
- B. x = 39
- C. x = 50
- D. x = 59
Correct answer: A
Rationale: To find the value of x, set up the proportion 7/9 = x/63. Cross multiply to get 7*63 = 9*x. This simplifies to 441 = 9x. Divide both sides by 9 to solve for x, giving x = 49. Therefore, the correct answer is A. Choice B (x = 39), Choice C (x = 50), and Choice D (x = 59) are incorrect as they do not match the correct calculation based on the proportion set up.
5. Subtract: 15.7 - 9.8 =
- A. 6.1
- B. 8.96
- C. 5.9
- D. 4.30
Correct answer: C
Rationale: To find the difference between 15.7 and 9.8, you need to subtract 9.8 from 15.7. This operation results in 5.9. Therefore, the correct answer is 5.9. Choice A, 6.1, is incorrect as it represents the result of subtracting 9.8 from 15.9, not 15.7. Choice B, 8.96, is also incorrect as it is not the correct result of the subtraction provided. Choice D, 4.30, is incorrect as well, as it is not the result of subtracting 9.8 from 15.7.
