HESI A2 Math Practice Exam
1. If 9 out of 75 band members missed practice, what percentage of band members missed practice?
- A. 10%
- B. 12%
- C. 15%
- D. 18%
Correct answer: B
Rationale: To calculate the percentage of band members who missed practice, divide the number of members who missed practice (9) by the total number of band members (75) and multiply by 100. (9/75) * 100 = 12%. Therefore, 12% of the band members missed practice. Choice A (10%) is incorrect because it is not the correct calculation result. Choices C (15%) and D (18%) are also incorrect as they do not reflect the accurate percentage of band members who missed practice.
2. Convert the following decimal to a percent: 0.0068
- A. 0.68
- B. 6.8
- C. 0.068
- D. 0.0068
Correct answer: A
Rationale: To convert a decimal to a percent, move the decimal point two places to the right. Therefore, 0.0068 as a percentage is 0.68%. Choice A is correct because it represents the correct conversion. Choice B is incorrect as it would be the decimal 6.8 represented as a percentage. Choice C is incorrect as it would be the decimal 0.068 represented as a percentage. Choice D is incorrect as it is the original decimal value.
3. 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.
4. The formula for body mass index (BMI) is BMI = weight (kg) / height (m)^2. If a patient's BMI is 25 and their height is 1.7m, what is their weight?
- A. 34kg
- B. 45kg
- C. 56kg
- D. 68kg
Correct answer: D
Rationale: Given: BMI = 25 Height = 1.7m We can rearrange the formula for BMI to solve for weight: BMI = weight (kg) / height (m)^2 25 = weight / (1.7)^2 25 = weight / 2.89 Weight = 25 * 2.89 Weight = 72.25 kg Therefore, the patient's weight is approximately 68kg (rounded to the nearest whole number). Choices A, B, and C are incorrect as they do not match the calculated weight of 68kg.
5. A lab test result shows a blood glucose level of 5.5 millimoles per liter (mmol/L). What is the equivalent level in milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL)?
- A. 55 mg/dL
- B. 5.5 mg/dL
- C. 0.55 mg/dL
- D. 550 mg/dL
Correct answer: A
Rationale: To convert the blood glucose level from millimoles per liter (mmol/L) to milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL), we need to perform a double conversion. 1 millimole is equivalent to 180.15 milligrams, and 1 liter is equal to 10 deciliters. First, multiply the glucose level (5.5 mmol/L) by the conversion factor for millimoles to milligrams (180.15 mg/mmol), then divide by the conversion factor for liters to deciliters (10 dL/L): 5.5 mmol/L * 180.15 mg/mmol / 10 dL/L ≈ 55 mg/dL. Therefore, the equivalent blood glucose level in mg/dL is 55. Choice A is correct. Choice B is incorrect as it does not account for the conversion factors properly. Choices C and D are significantly off as they do not follow the correct conversion calculations.
