As we wind down to the actual FCAT exam…. Introducing FCAT by Request
Commutative : Order Associative : Grouping Distributive : Sharing Identity : Same Identity Enter M.A.6.A.3.5 Hoping this helps you Number Property Questions
FCAT By Request: Properties The picture is of no use to you in answering the question. It is a ‘red herring’ Tom wants to put a fence around the perimeter of a rectangular garden that is 12 feet long and 4 feet wide. The perimeter of the garden can be represented using the expression below: 2(l + w) Using only the distributive property, which expression also correctly represents the perimeter of the garden? A.w(2 + l) B.2l + 2w C.2lw D.2l + w
…Is used to refer to something that misleads or distracts from the relevant or important issue. is a seemingly plausible, though ultimately irrelevant, diversionary tactic may be intentional, or unintentional; it does not necessarily mean a conscious intent to mislead. was probably invented in 1807 by English polemicist [debater] William Cobbett, referring to one occasion on which he ihad supposedly used a kipper to divert hounds from chasing a hare which was never an actual practice of hunters. The phrase was later borrowed to provied a formal name for the logical fallacy and literary device. [www.redherring.com is a tech company ] Literary Idiom Tactic Red Herring Uh…oh….
Simplify all expressions Remember each part of the expression is a term Indirectly this may test the students knowledge of multiplying positive and negative numbers which is not covered in Grade 6. Which expression is equivalent to x + (4xy + 2y – 3) using only the associative property? A.(x – 3) + (4xy + 2y) B.(1 + 4y) x + (226 + (2y – 3) C.(x + 4xy + 2y ) -3 D.x + 2(y + 4x) -3
FCAT By Request: Properties Which expression is the additive inverse of 2u – 4(v + 2)? A.-2u – (4(v – 2) B.-2u + (4(v – 2) C.-2u – (4(v + 2) D.-2u + (4(v + 2)
FCAT By Request: Properties Which of the properties below does the following sentence define? “ The order in which the numbers are added or multipied does not change their sum or product”. A.Associative Property B.Commutative Property C.Distributive Property D.Additive Inverse
FCAT By Request: Properties Which expression is equivalent to 2u(1 + v) – 3(v – 2) using only the distributive property? A.2u – 3v + 2uv – 6 B.-3(v – 2) + (1 + 2v) C.2uv + u – 3(v – 2) D. 2u + 2uv – 3v + 6

A Gridding Puzzle Percentages Enter M.A.6.A.5.1 Hoping this helps you a
FCAT By Request: Percentage Problems In cooking class, Rubin made 50 sugar cookie. His teacher then asked him to decorate the cookies using different colors of frosting. Rubin decorated 15 of the cookies with green icing, 10 with yellow icing, 15 with red icing, and the rest with blue icing. What percent of the cookies did Rubin decorate with blue icing?
