Is this a possible NET question?

  1. I was using a review book and it showed this problem

    5(x3 + 4) - x2 + 3 = 4x

    The X3 is x cubed and the x2 is x squared.

    Anyone that took the NET - is this a problem that they would ask us to solve?

    I honestly don't remember anything that involved. But it's been awhile and my brain was really tired after taking it. the problems I remember were something like this

    4 + 2x = 3(x+9) and you would solve for x

    I suppose they could ask that type of problem. If it's in a review book, you should at least be familiar with how to work the problem. I mostly remember solve for x problems, but this one is more likely just asking you to multiply it out. If the direction to this problem was to solve for x, then I'd say no, you won't have to go into that on the NET. The NET math questions are designed to be answered relatively quickly.

    I don't remember it being that complicated.

    Thanks everyone! I didn't think it would be this complicated either. I agree it will be more of a solve for x kind of thing

    Which book are you using? If it's the NET study guide from eriworld, those are exactly the types of questions that will be on your test.

    No, Barron's. The school suggested this one specifically.

    I'm not familiar with that study guide. Sorry I can't remember the exact questions on the NET, but there was some very basic algebra at most.

    Isn't that a quadratic equation? I'm pretty sure it's just simple equations that are on the test (eg: 5(x+3) -2x = 3(x-8) - that type of thing.

    I took the NET in Feb. and I do not remember any problems like that. An overall view of the test I took was this. (1) essential math skills:whole numbers decimal, fraction and percentage operations number system conversions and basic algebra equations. (2) critical thinking:inferential, main ideas, and perdicting the outcome. (3) stress level profile:family social money/time academic and work place. (4) social interaction profile: passive and aggressive.and (5) learning style: auditory, visual, soical, solitary, oral or witing dependent learner.

    AS FOR THE MATH IT WAS MAINLY HOW TO CHANGE PERCENT TO DECIMAL AND FRACTIONS TO PERCENTS ETC I HOPE THIS HELPS AND GOOD LUCK ON THE TEST!

    Thanks everyone! I took it today and got results on the computer and it looks like I have passed with flying colors. Are the scores that the computer gives you at the end of the test the same scores that are mailed to you later?
