Scads of impatient munchkins out there. Instead of completing the whole thing, I’m putting up my quick version of the multiple choice answers, with a few choice comments. If you see a mistake, let me know! I’m not working with a state key.

Update: 31 - 39 (Parts II, III and IV) are now posted.

Note: Feel free to try to answer other people’s questions.
Note: before asking a question, read the previous comments to see if yours has already been answered
1. (4)   72 minutes
2. (4)   1 and 6
3. (1)   $3x^{12}y^4$
4. (2)   58 + sw
5. (3)   the favorite ice cream flavor
6. (4)   $h \geq 48$  (the correct translation really is: $(h < 48) \implies \neg ride$, which the kids won’t know. So choose another problem instead?)
7. (1)   6
8. (2)   $\frac{6}{30}$ (vocab question. Boo, hiss. Do you want to know what empirical means? More, later)
9. (3)   $\sqrt{34}$
10. (2)   $4\sqrt{2}$
11. (4)   1,238,400  (they asked for the approximate speed, but did not offer that 344 m/s was approximate)
12. (2)   31
13. (3)   $\frac{b+r}{1+r}$ (level of difficulty far exceeds what was expected. Bad question)
14. (1)   8
15. (3)   84
16. (4)   1/2
17. (1)   202
18. (1)   vertex: (8, -1); axis of symmetry: x = 8
19. (3)   It is not a function because there are multiple y-values for a given x-value
20. (1)   (graph has solid, not dashed line. Shading is down (to the right))
21. (2)   $\frac{x-5}{x}$  (you guys are supposed to restrict the denominator for the kids, even if they don’t like seeing the restriction)
22. (1)   y = -3x + 6
23. (2)   $5x^2 - 9x + 8$  (vocab question to hurt non-native speakers. Are we testing polynomials or grasp of English?)
24. (3)   3 and -6 (why did they list the roots in descending order? and with the graph in their face?)
25. (2)   2
26. (3)   -a + b
27. (4)   $5.04 \times 10^7$
28. (2)   0.14
29. (2)   $\frac{5}{6a}$  (why was the first fraction not given in lowest terms?)
30. (4)   {x| $10 < x \leq 12$, where x is an integer}  (this sort of non-standard choice drives me nuts)

also, for #28, for the relative error, dun u put the diff ovr the actual, not the measured, so shudnt it be 1.261/9.261 which comes out to .136164…. which rounds to 0.14 which was choice 2?

Volume of the measured is 8cm and volume of the actual is 9.261. Measured minus the actual divided by the actual is .1361 = .14 rounded.

June 20, 2009 am30 10:34 am 10:34 am

And for #29, the common denominator is 12a so you get (18/12a) – (8/12a) = (10/12a) choice (4)

• June 20, 2009 am30 10:40 am 10:40 am

They asked for simplest form, so the equivalent fraction $\frac{5}{6a}$ is correct.

• Anonymous permalink
June 20, 2009 am30 10:50 am 10:50 am

thats not equivalent. 5/6a is different from 10/6a because teh numerator has no variable u cant simplify it. they are different things.

• JMC permalink
June 20, 2009 am30 10:55 am 10:55 am

No, it’s correct because the denominator is 12a, not 6a. So you can reduce it.

• Anonymous permalink
June 20, 2009 am30 10:59 am 10:59 am

tht rule only applies to addends, if the coefficient and variable r multiplying, simplifying it is correct. Also, in the beginning, the problem was 6/4a – 2/3a. You can simplify the 6/4a right off the bat to 3/2a and then the common denominator is 6a.

• anonymous permalink
June 20, 2009 am30 10:56 am 10:56 am

but it said in simplest form so 10/12a is equvalent to 5/6a

Is there a range of answers for the line of best fit question? Some of my students used a different line than y = 5x + 25 for their line…

• June 20, 2009 am30 10:58 am 10:58 am

What a lousy question. They wanted an “eyeball” answer, so I would like to assume that the answer is yes. However… this is NYSED, and they make mistakes (so do I), but they usually refuse to fix theirs. (and deny that they were mistakes, and then deny that they mattered, etc, etc), so we’ll have to see what the rubric says…

Isn’t there a real way to calculate a line of best fit? Isn’t that beyond these kids? So why ask them to do wrong math?

• JMC permalink
June 20, 2009 am30 11:01 am 11:01 am

Haha, I agree.

I don’t teach my kids to do a linear regression on the graphing calculator. Maybe that’s my fault, but I feel like they should do it by hand since so much of this course is all about writing equations of lines, etc. My concern with that though is that some chose different lines of best fit…I sure hope they are okay with that!!

• Anonymous permalink
June 20, 2009 am30 11:46 am 11:46 am

The line of best fit can be found by inputting values into L1 and L2 and then you press STAT and press the LinReg or something
The best answer would have been like y=4.5x+29

• Falalala . permalink
June 21, 2009 am30 11:04 am 11:04 am

You press STAT–>Edit–>fill in the values for x, L1 and the values for y, L2 . Then you press STAT again, go to CALC, then press LinReg. The answer comes out to y=4.5x+27.3 (rounded to the nearest tenth)

its 10/6a because 5/6a is not equivalent to 10/6a. It doesnt simplify liek that.

• Anonymous permalink
June 20, 2009 am30 11:17 am 11:17 am

basically, u have to take the difference between the two measurements and divide it by the correct measurement. So let’s say the question said the student measured the mass of the wood to be 3 grams but it was really 3.3 grams. you take the difference, 0.3 and divide it by the correct measurement, 3.3, and that’s your relative error.

I didn’t go into detail on how to write the equation for the line of best fit. There was a multiple choice question on a past exam. What is the best way to desribe how to write it? I won’t see the exam until Monday. Some of my students said there were things on it that I didn’t teach. Did anyone find it to be difficult?

• JMC permalink
June 20, 2009 am30 11:31 am 11:31 am

I teach my kids to draw a straight line that includes as many points as possible from the scatter plot. Then I teach them to choose two of the points on that line and find the slope, then use that and a point to write the equation of their line.

This is my first year teaching this course and I thought it was okay. I was bummed about the empirical probability question because I taught my kids experimental vs. theoretical and only mentioned the word empirical.

Some of my kids created a cumulative frequency histogram instead of a regular histogram for #38.

I think number 17 is incorret. it should be 4) 236. Check it again.

• June 20, 2009 pm30 12:34 pm 12:34 pm

freshmen = x
sophs = x + 60
juniors = 2x – 50
seniors = 3x

x + (x + 60) + (2x – 50) + 3x = 1,424
7x + 10 = 1424
x = 202

They asked for freshmen, so 202 is correct.

Amusing? 202 freshmen, 262 sophomores, 354 juniors, 606 seniors? Something’s wrong with this picture, right? Come on SED, if you use realworld context, at least pretend to make it make sense…

Sr = 3x
Total = 1424

x + (x + 60) + (2x – 50) + 3x = 1424

7x + 10 = 1424

7x = 1414

x = 202

the one i though was confusin, was the one [i dont really remember it], but it was like on interest rate i think. he had 5000 and 3/4% rate, something like that and they were asking you how much money he would have in 3 years. they also asked you to leave the answer to the nearest cent. what was the answer, and how did u do it?

• Mr. W permalink
June 20, 2009 pm30 1:36 pm 1:36 pm

3 3/4 % = 0.0375
100 % = 1.00

The percent value after one year,
converted into decimals is 1 + 0.0375 = 1.0375

Each year interest compiles,
you must multiply the previous value by 1.0375

So for three years, the equation looks like:

5000(1.0375)^3 = ~$5583.86 31. linda Cohen permalink June 20, 2009 pm30 1:33 pm 1:33 pm it’s ($5000)(1.0375) exponent 3

Someone with the test in front of him. You are relying on memory.

You were rude in your first message (#13 may have been easy for you, but many students did not learn how to do it). Now, in the face of a mistake, you are indignant and ready to blame others?

It’s ok to be proud you did well, but try not to be boastful. And a little more consideration for those with less knowledge than you would be a good thing.

• jordan Wallach permalink
June 20, 2009 pm30 3:05 pm 3:05 pm

thank you jd, for all you’ve done, but i have to agree with the above comment
#29 was 6/4a – 2/3a
so when you find a common denominator (12a), you get 18/12a – 8/12a
so, you get 10/12a, but that cannot be simplified because they are unlike terms
correct me if i’m wrong

• Mr. W permalink
June 20, 2009 pm30 3:54 pm 3:54 pm

Unlike terms cannot be added or subtracted, but you can always multiply or divide numerical coefficients. 10/12 reduces to 5/6 and the variable a stays in the denominator.

• Anonymous permalink
June 20, 2009 pm30 6:01 pm 6:01 pm

also, if you substitute any number for a, lets say 2, into both 10/12a and 5/6a, you still end up with the same value in both fractions

wasnt 28 .16 becuase the measurement of one side of the cube was 2 but the actual was 2.1 and 2 cubed is 8 and 2.1 cubed is 9.261 and 9.261 -8 = 1.261 which divided by 8 is .1576… which rounds to .16 and for the line of best fit i put y=x +25 do you think that would get credit
thanx in advance

you need to divide by the actual (2.1)^3 not the measured (8).

y = x + 25 might get 2/3 points – we won’t know until we see the rubric.

• JMC permalink
June 20, 2009 pm30 8:54 pm 8:54 pm

Well additive inverse is just more specific. There is additive inverse which means when you add the two things you get zero and there is multiplicative inverse which means when you multiply the two things you get one. Inverse is just the general term for these two specific types. I teach my kids to think of opposites when they hear inverse.

As a parent of an eighth grader who took this test, I am very frustrated with the grading scale. It appears that the percentage scores are fairly accurate if a student scores in the 90s, but the overwhelming curve continues to increase as the grades drop lower. If I calculated it correctly, a student that answered 60% of the test correctly would receive a score of 80. I know that regents are calculated into final GPAs, but I am wondering how much colleges consider the actual regents scores. Do any of the teachers know? I am hopeful that my child scored in the 90s, as he has a high 90s average in the class, but I am really disappointed with the inaccurate grading system the state uses. This year is our first experience with regents (algebra and earth science).

• June 21, 2009 am30 9:26 am 9:26 am

$3y - 9 \leq 6x$ becomes $y \leq 2x + 3$ so you would shade down on the “less than” but also you could check a point. For example (0,0) gives -9 < 0, which works. Shade down (and to the right).

wait what was question 1

• June 21, 2009 pm30 8:34 pm 8:34 pm

Multiple-choice (2 points)

This dudette rides on her bike to some places. In 45 minutes, she rides 5 miles. How much time would it take her to ride 8 miles then?

Use a simple proportion:

45 is equal to x
— —
5 8

45*8 = 5X
Divide 5 from both sides.

9*8=X
72=X

Thus, the dudette would have to ride for 72 minutes. WOW, that’s a long time!

• June 21, 2009 pm30 8:37 pm 8:37 pm

Sorry – there was a mess with the proportion. I’ll have to say it in words.

45 over 5 is equal to X over 8.

That’s basically 9 equals x over 8.

9 = X/8

Multiply each side by 8.

You get 72 = X.

Same solution, either way. :) This can be used as a check.

Dude, I can’t remember every question. LOL!

109. June 21, 2009 pm30 8:31 pm 8:31 pm

For a function, there can’t be many y-values for just one x-value. Something isn’t a function when there ARE many y-values for just one x-value. Imagine this: there are two sets – sets A and B. They each have 3 values. But the first value in set A is “connected” to two values in set B. Thus, this is not a function. You can test if something is a function or not with the vertical line test, but ONLY on graphs. In the example I just gave here, you can’t use the vertical line test because you’re dealing with sets, not a clear drawing on a graph. So, we have to be careful with this stuff, or points will be lost. I hope this cleared any confusion instead of leading to more!

• June 21, 2009 pm30 8:36 pm 8:36 pm

yeah i did the line test and it showed that 1 x value went through more than 1 y values

• June 21, 2009 pm30 8:39 pm 8:39 pm

So if one X-value goes through many Y-values, this means it’s not a function.

• June 21, 2009 pm30 8:40 pm 8:40 pm

Functions can include some linear equations (not including vertical lines, obviously), parabolas, and hyperbolas.

• June 22, 2009 pm30 2:13 pm 2:13 pm

exactly that’s why i said the answer should be there are multiple x values for a given y value not the other way around like it says. you didn’t have to explain it to me i know what a function is i was just saying that what the answer on there was wrong.

110. June 21, 2009 pm30 8:41 pm 8:41 pm

Functions EXCLUDE vertical lines, circles, ellipses, and some squares, rectangles, etc (depending on how they’re drawn on the graph).

i think #19 should be 4-cannot be function cuz multiple x-values

19, is wrong. A function is when there is multiple x values for a given y value. It’s opposite.

I think 26 is wrong. Isn’t it -a-b? Because if you put an example number say -2-1 keep change change would make it -2+-1 which s -3, the original problem was a+b 2 + 1 which is three. Add -3 and positive three together and you get 0. Right?

• June 22, 2009 am30 12:36 am 12:36 am

The opposite of a – b is b – a. Try it. 10 – 3 is 7. 3 – 10 is -7, right?

Now, b – a equals -a + b.

June 22, 2009 am30 12:38 am 12:38 am

Didn’t it ask for the additive inverse for A + B?
Which means it’s the opposite, negative. -A-B, Keep change change is -A+ B, wouldn’t both of them be the same exact thing then?

• Mr. W permalink
June 22, 2009 am30 3:27 am 3:27 am

It asked for the inverse of A – B.

A —> -A
-B —> B

Therefore: -A + B

I had taught my students that A – B = – (B – A)
Same principle, wonder if they made the connection.

For number 30, wouldn’t it be x| 10 < x < 12, because the set was {10, 12} These things "{}" were both the same. So they answer can't have two different "<" signs. ?

Sorry for different posts. I'm doing them as I'm reading them so I do not forget. Thanks for what you gave, really made me confident!

19 is definitly correct-the same x value can’t equal two y values, in a circle it does.

what was Q 25? thanks

for #1 isn’t -1 AND -6?

• justastudent permalink
June 22, 2009 pm30 2:36 pm 2:36 pm

(x-6)(x-1)
x-6=0 x-1=0
+6 +1
x=6 x=1

so ur answer would be 1 and 6 because u have to set the binomials to 0 and ur answer would be the oppisite……..im not very good at explaining things but i hope this may help you.

and navah, #1 is just a proportion-6th/7th grade math

45min/5 mi=n min/8 mi
8 x 45=5 x n
360=5n
360/5=5n/5
72=n
She rode the 8 miles in 72 minutes then
hope it helps

• Navah permalink
June 23, 2009 pm30 6:32 pm 6:32 pm

oh! thank you so much!!
wow i was using rate(time)=distance
to find the rate and then multiplied it by 8 miles which i just realized i must’ve plugged it back into the formula wrong b/c my method would have worked but i plugged the 8 miles in as the time instead of distance….man what a stupid mistake and i spent so long looking over that one!!!
oh well i guess i couldn’t think straight for the first question of the test!!
well thanks again…im extremely happy with my mark anyway…..kay im done ranting now :)

#19 is 4 hes wrong dont worry about it

• June 23, 2009 am30 12:46 am 12:46 am

No, really, it’s 3.
A vertical line is not a function, right? Think (3,0), (3,1), (3,2), etc. lots of y values with one x value. Problem
A horizontal line is a function, right? Think (-1,5), (0,5), (1,5), (2,5), etc. Lots of x values with one y value. Good, right/

• June 23, 2009 pm30 8:05 pm 8:05 pm

no jd your wrong because something is not a function whenever there is more than one x value paired with a y value. Not the other way around.

• someone permalink
June 24, 2009 am30 10:01 am 10:01 am

he isnt a function is an equation that passes the vertical line test that means that there is only one line passing through it verticaly and the y-axis is the vertical line so if it has more than one y value than it isnt a function (one x value ,more than one y value #3)

• June 24, 2009 pm30 9:02 pm 9:02 pm

wow you do not understand that for the vertical line test when you draw the line and you see the points that the lines goes through on the graph, those points are 2 different y values but the x value is the same which means the answer would be 4 because think about it when you draw the vertical line and it goes through 2 or more points those points are going to have the same x value but different y values because an x value is always when you go across the x axis and then up which is the y value.

how do u do #27 i got 50.4 x 10^6

• June 23, 2009 pm30 8:14 pm 8:14 pm

exactly same here hes wrong about that question because when you multiply 12 times 5 or whatever it was you get 50.4 not 5.04.

• Math Person. permalink
June 24, 2009 pm30 7:54 pm 7:54 pm

You’re correct, when you multiply the two number you do get 50.4. But in order to make it one of those equations are are a number x10 to a power, the decimal point NEEDS to be right next to the second number, so to fully solve the problem, you need to move the decimal one to the left, and then add one to the exponent. Trust me, we went over it in class.

So i am taking the regents integrated algebra tomorrow, IS THIS THE same test on this site

ARE AUGUST 2009 AND JUNE2009 THE SAME REGENTS (Integrated Algebra)

• KMTMB permalink
August 12, 2009 pm31 2:20 pm 2:20 pm

The Regents are scheduled annually in January,June and August. Each test administration is a different set of questions.The exams are not identical but they cover the same “curriculum”.
The exam on this site is NOT the Aug. 2009 exam and no other site has a copy since the Regents exams are kept under lock and key. The exam is released immediately prior to the actual exam time. The exam on this site is the June 2009 exam. It was released after the embargo date and time.

Take a deep breath; repeat to yourself, “I know this stuff”, get a good night’s sleep and bring pens,pencils and a calculator(just in case one isn’t available)
Good Luck
