2nd Quiz = 6
3rd Quiz = 12
a1 = 3 r = 2
\(S_{n}= \frac{a_{1}(1r^{n})}{1r}= \frac{3(12^{5})}{12}\)
\(S_{n}= \frac{3(132)}{1r}= \frac{3(31)}{1}\)

Question 11 
A  26 
B  23

C  24 
D  25 
a1= 1
a6 = 1 + 5(2) = 9
sn = n/2(a1+a6)
s6 = 6/2(1+9)
= (3)8
= 24
Question 12 
X  0  1  2  3  4  5 
y  1  3  5  7  9  11 
A  y = 2x + 1 
B  y = x 
C  y = 2x 
D  y = 2x – 1 
=(31)/(10)

(yintercept) b=1
y=mx+b
y=2x+1
Question 13 
43  33  24  51  36  31 
50  46  50  29  40  25 
38  35  31  35  42  50 
47  21  45  45  28  36 
58  62  37  55  52  49 
A  41 
B  56 
C  40 
D  63 
= 62 – 21 = 41
Question 14 
A  77 
B  51 
C  74 
D  55 
a7 = 20
a20 = 59
a7 = a1 +(71)d
a20 = a1 +(201)d
20 = a1+6d 59 = a1+19d
Solving by elimination, we can solve the value of d.
a1+19d = 59 a1+19d = 59
 a1+6d = 20 + a16d = 20
13d/13 = 39/13
d = 3
Solving for a1: Solving for a25:
20=a1+6(3) a25 = a1+24d
20 = a1+18 = 2 + 24(3)
a1 = 2018 = 2+72
a1 = 2 a25 = 74
Question 15 
A  n/2  1 
B  [n1]/2 
C  [n+1]/2 
D  n/2 + 1 
n1 = Odd number of house
[n1]/2 = Houses that are painted blue
Question 16 
A  Frequency 
B  Array 
C  Matrix 
D  Discriminant 
Question 17 
A  2/3 
B  1/3 
C  7/12 
D  3/4 
= 8/12
= 2/3
Question 18 
A  P69, 700.00 
B  P67, 200.00 
C  P69, 950.00 
D  P64, 100.00 
= 67,200 (starting annual salary)
n = 1 d = 250
a11 = a1+(111)d
= 67,200 +10 (250)
= 67,200 +2,500
= 69,700
Question 19 
A  50 
B  100 
C  25 
D  120 
Question 20 
A  45 meters 
B  40 meters 
C  50 meters 
D  30 meters 
511 = 50
2,250 / 50 = 45 meters
Question 21 
A  P58.00 
B  P50.00 
C  P54.00 
D  P40.00 
d = 4.00
an= 4 * 3 = 12wks
a12 = a1+(121)d
= 10.00 + (11) 4.00
= 10.00 + 44.00
= 54.00
Question 22 
A  The domain of f(x) are all real numbers except 0. 
B  The domain of f(x) are all real numbers except 3. 
C  The domain of f(x) are all real numbers except 3. 
D  The domain of f(x) are all real numbers.

Question 23 
A  8 
B  6 
C  7 
D  9 
sn = 127
a2 =2
n = ?
r=a2/a1 = 2/1 = 2
sum of nth terms in geometric progression:
sn = [a1(1r^n)]/ [1r]
127 = [1(12^n)]/(12)
127 = 12^n
2^7= 2^n
n=7 127 = 12n 1271 = 2n 27= 2n n = 7
Question 24 
A  70 
B  48 
C  24 
D  32 
C = n!/[(nr)!r!]
n = 8 r = 4
8!/[(84!)4!
[4x2x7x6x5]/[4x3x2x1]
=2x7x5
C = 70
Question 25 
A  23 
B  22 
C  20 
D  21 
an= 51 n = ?
an = a1+ (n1)d
51 = 6+(n1)(3)
51 = 6 +3n+3
51 = 9 + 3n
519 = 3n
60 = 3n
n = 20
Question 26 
A  tenths 
B  Quartile 
C  inter quartile 
D  Decile 
Question 27 
A  all real numbers

B  all real numbers greater than 0 
C  all real numbers greater than or equal to 1/5 
D  all real numbers greater than 1/5 
y = \(\frac{2x^{2}1}{5}\)
5y = 2x^21
5y + 1 = 2x^2
\(\frac{5y+1}{2}=x^{2}\)
\(x = \sqrt{\frac{5y+1}{2}}\)
Range is defined as all possible values of y correspond to value of x. From the given equation \(\frac{5y+1}{2}\) must be greater than or equal to zero.
\(\frac{5y+1}{2} \geq 0\)
\(5y+1 \geq 0\)
\(\frac{5y}{5}\geq \frac{1}{5}\)
\(y \geq \frac{1}{5}\)
Therefore, range for given equation: all real numbers greater than or equal to 1/5 5y +1 Therefore, range for given equation: all real numbers greater than or equal to zero.

A  48.3 
B  40.8 
C  40.6 
D  46.4

D  41 
21 24 25 28 29 31 31 33 35 35 36 36 37 38 40 42 43 45 45 46 47 49 50 50 50 51 52 55 58 62
15th = 40
16th = 42
median = [N+1]/2 = [30+1]/2 = 31/2 = 15.5th score
x15 = 40
x16 = 42
[40+42]/2 = 41
Question 30 
A  1 
B  1/3 
C  3 
D  2 
r = a2/a1 = a3/a2 = a4/a3

OMG SANA MAKAPASA AKO. GOODLUCK SA MGA MAGUUPCAT AT SA MGA MAKAKASABAY KO SA NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF PHYSICS AUG 16 6:30 AM!!!!!
thanks
ang hirap pag english pinaguusapan
…i am really dumb…ahahahahahahaha
h! I’m Bea malapit na ang kaming mag take ng entrance exam sa UP, I hoe this website will help me kasi hnd na kami e rereview ng mga teachers namin…di ba mahirap?
sa sana sa ganitong paraan makaya ko ang exam….wish me luck and thank you 😉
i would like to check the answer in No. 13. I think the correct answer there is (n+1)/2. If there are odd no. of houses in a row say: A,B, C, D, E, F, G. First house is A painted with blue and B with yellow… so A, C, E and G are painted blue. 4 houses. So 7 + 1 = 8 /2 = 4…am i right?
yap . thought soo too
hahaha.. i just got 14 out of 30 with this exam .. i need to review more but its still good enough for first time taker :))
i’m only 15 years of age
i’m so glad that i’ll take that exam. !
out of .~*30 questions I only get 19
so kin’da freak di ba p0 .~
but i need more review para
pag’nag college na aco next year alam ko
na kung ano ang mga sagot.~
but don’t forget t0 pray bef0re y0u take the exam.
i hope that i will pass the exam. >>>
<3 i also need more inf0 para makapasa. ?
more strategies .:)
