**Directions:** The Mathematics subtest will test your ability to solve quantitative problems quickly and accurately. Analyze each problem and select the best answer from the multiple choices.

The practice tests are organized around five fundamental math concepts that will be included in the actual UPCAT: arithmetic and number sense, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and statistics.

To mimic the actual test conditions, you’re not allowed to use calculators. Because UPCAT is a time-pressured exam, we also recommend using a timer when taking the practice test.

Thank You! I hope there is a clear explanation and solution to each item?

hello po

how to check if my answers are correct.

thank you

Clarification: 15. D. also works.

No it wont. Substituting the points from choice D will lead to -1 is greater than (-3)(-4) which is simplified to -1 is greater than positive 12. Now this obviously incorrect

How would it be -1 when the coordinates are (2, -2) which means x=2 and y=-2 and substituting that to y+3 > -3(x-2) would make 1>0 which is right, right? Or did I miss some point?

If inivaluate po natin ung coordinates sa D ito po ang aking sagot

D. (2,-2)

y > -3x+3

-2 > (-3)(2)+3

-2 > -6+3

-2 > -3

True naman ung lumabas na sagot

Need to talk to Mr, Batungbacal by email
