The 2024 SAT standardized test is a critical assessment for college admissions. The math section covers a wide range of topics. To help students prepare, we’ve created a practice paper. This paper includes various math problems to help students become familiar with the test format and excel in their exam.

1.

The scatterplot above displays the marathon times of the eight members of a running club in relation to their ages and the line of best fit. How many people have times at least fifteen minutes faster than what would be expected based on the line of best fit?

A. One

B. Two

C. Three

D. Four

2. The table below shows the relative investment in alternative energy sources in the United States by type. One column shows the relative investment in 2007 of $75 million total invested in alternative energy. The other column shows the projected relative investment in 2017 given current trends. The total projected investment in alternative energy in 2017 is $254 million.

Based on the information in the table, if an investment was made in alternative energy in 2007, what is the probability that the money was invested in wind resources?

A. \( \frac{1}{25} \)

B. \( \frac{3}{10} \)

C. \( \frac{2}{5} \)

D. \( \frac{3}{5} \)

3. The table below shows the relative investment in alternative energy sources in the United States by type. One column shows the relative investment in 2007 of $75 million total invested in alternative energy. The other column shows the projected relative investment in 2017 given current trends. The total projected investment in alternative energy in 2017 is $254 million.

Based on the information in the table, which of the following statements is the most accurate?

A. The value of the 2007 investment in biofuels was approximately $50 million.

B. The portion of total alternative energy investment focused on wind sources is projected to decrease by 8% in 2017.

C. The dollar amount invested in fuel cells in 2007 is projected to double in 2017.

D. The top three types of alternative energy were invested in more equally in 2007 than they are projected to be in 2017.

4. Monster Truck Inc. leases a new truck for a down payment of $3,200 plus monthly payments of $380 per month for 36 months. Which of the following functions f represents the total amount paid, in dollars, after m months, where 0 ≤ m ≤ 36 ?

A. f(m) = 380 + 3,200m

B. f(m) = 3,200 + 36m

C. f(m) = 3,200 + 380m

D. f(m) = 10,480 – 380m

5. What is the equation of a line that contains the point (6, -5) and has an x-intercept of 3 ?

A. \( y=-\frac{5}{3}x+5 \)

B. \( y=-\frac{4}{3}x+3 \)

C. \( y=-\frac{3}{5}x+3 \)

D. \( y=\frac{5}{3}x+5 \)
