## Questions

### Subject: SAT

Taken from an SAT English section: The passage most strongly suggests which of the following about Gregor's attitude towards his profession? A. He is resentful. B. He is diligent. C. He is depressed. D. He is eager to please.

To begin deciphering the answer, we have to first consider who Gregor is in the passage. Is he the author of the written passage we are analyzing or a character in the story? Second, we have to thoughtfully consider each choice by understanding what each of the words means. What is resentful? Diligent? Depressed? Eagar to please? Third, we have to understand the implications of these words and how the actions of Gregor in the passage help to either support or reject these claims. Fourth, using context clues and the information provided in the passage, the student can make an informed decision about the answer.

### Subject: Pre-Algebra

Common themes of Pre-Algebra include manipulation of numbers and understanding how to properly add, divide, multiply, or divide: What are the positive factors of 9?

Positive factors of 9 would be 1, 3, and 9. This is because 1 x 9 = 9 and 3 x 3 = 9. Since 3 is a repeat factor, we would only include/count it once.

### Subject: ACT

Taken from an ACT Math section: What is the value of x when 2x + 3 = 3x – 4 ?

1. Subtract 3 to the other side to isolate the variable x. 2. Subtract 3x to the other side. 3. Divide by negative 1 to get x = 7. 2x + 3 = 3x -4 2x = 3x - 7 -x = -7 x = 7
