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.

Which of the following quadratic equations is represented in the graph above?

A. y = x² – x – 6

B. y = x² + x – 12

C. y = x² + 6x + 9

D. y = x² + 5x + 6

2. Dahlia is competing in a group stair-climbing relay challenge with two of her friends. They will take turns climbing the stairs of two of Metropolis’s tallest buildings. The three of them each plan to climb an equal number of stairs, and Dahlia will go first. The first building has s stairs, and the second building has 3,639 stairs. During the race, Dahlia runs out of energy and is only able to complete 75% of her goal. What is the total number of stairs that Dahlia climbs?

A. \( 0.75(\frac{1}{3}s+1213） \)

B. \( 0.75(\frac{1}{3}s+3639） \)

C. \( 75(\frac{1}{3}s+1213） \)

D. \( 75(\frac{1}{3}s+3639） \)

3. Thirty-six percent of the 315 million people residing in the United States currently hold a passport. Of these passport-holding individuals, 8% travel internationally every year. Of those who travel internationally every year, approximately 10% visit European countries. How many U.S. residents visit European countries every year?

A. 9072

B. 90720

C. 907200

D. 9072000

4. If the third degree polynomial x³ – 10x² + 12x + 72 can be factored to (x + 2) · y², what is y in terms of x ?

A. x – 6

B. x – 3

C. x – 1

D. x + 1

5.

To better measure the effects of increases in poaching, the nation of Wakanda began a study in 2000 to track the number of elephants in each of the country’s three administrative districts. Every two years, researchers performed a count of the number of elephants in each region; these counts were performed in January. The table above shows the results of the study.

Researchers determine that at a 95% confidence level, their margin of error for the population of elephants in 2010 was 17.4. If the actual population in 2010 is within the confidence interval, what is the lowest possible population of elephants in Wakanda in 2010 ?

A. 1317

B. 1318

C. 1319

D. 1320
