The following College Mathematics sample questions don't appear on an actual CLEP examination. They are intended to give potential test takers an indication of the format and difficulty level of the examination and to provide content for practice and review. Knowing the correct answers to all of the sample questions isn't a guarantee of satisfactory performance on the exam.

Directions: An online scientific calculator will be available for the questions on this test. For each of the questions below, select the BEST of the choices given.

Notes:

  1. Unless otherwise specified, the domain of any function f  is assumed to be the set of all real numbers x  for which f (x)  is a real number.
  2. Figures that accompany questions are intended to provide information useful in answering the questions. The figures are drawn as accurately as possible EXCEPT when it is stated in a specific question that the figure is not drawn to scale.
  3. If a principal of dollars is invested at an annual interest rate r , compounded times per year, and no further withdrawals or deposits are made to the account, then the future value A , the account balance after t  years, is given by the formula A equals P times begin parenthesis 1 plus the fraction r over n end parenthesis to the power of n times t end power.
  4. If a principal of dollars is invested at an annual interest rate r , compounded continuously, and no further withdrawals or deposits are made to the account, then the future value A , the account balance after t  years, is given by the formula A = Pe rt .
  5. At an interest rate r , compounded times per year, the effective annual yield or annual percentage rate (APR), is given by the formula  A times P times R equals begin parenthesis 1 plus the fraction r over n end parenthesis to the power of n, minus 1.
