8. Each winter, Captain Dan's Ski Lodge rents both 11. A professional baseball team wishes to average
pairs of skis and snowboards to its guests for a flat 45,500 ticket purchases per game for the entire 162-
game season. Through the first 60 games of the
season, the team has averaged 43,000 ticket
purchases per game. Which of the following most
closely approximates how many ticket purchases
per game the team must average for the remainder
of the season in order to hit its overall goal of an
average of 45,500 ticket purchases per game for the
season?
 A. 46970
 B. 47880
 C. 48000
 D. 48220

12. A certain polynomial, P, has a degree of 2.
Polynomial Phas zeros of 2 and -3, and a > 0 when
the function of polynomial P is written in the form
of y = ax2 + bx + c. Given this information, which of
the following could be the graph of polynomial P ?

Question: 148
13. Circle O (not shown) is divided into three
sectors. Points P, Q, and R are on the
circumference of the circle. Sector POR has an area
of 8π, and sector ROQ has an area of 6π. If the
radius of circle O is 4, what is the measure of the
central angle of sector QOP, in degrees?
 A. 45
 B. 90
 C. 135
 D. 180
Question: 149
14. Medical residents at Lakewood Hospital are
choosing their individual specialties. Among them,
40% choose cardiology, 16% choose oncology, 34%
choose endocrinology, and the remaining x%
choose hematology. Once the doctors pick their first
specialty, they are then each asked to choose a
second specialty from the previous four options in
case their original specialty is already filled. They
may not pick their original specialty again. 20% of
those who originally picked cardiology choose
oncology as their second choice. If no other field
chooses oncology as their second choice, and the
hospital boasts 200 medical residents, then what is
the total number of residents who named oncology Question: 151
as either their first or second choice, in terms of x ? 1. Marco is ordering salt, which is only sold
 A. 8x - 128
 B. 8x - 144
in 30-pound bags. He currently has 75
 C. x2 + 24x - 188 pounds of salt, and he needs to have a
 D. x2 - 24x + 188 minimum of 200 pounds. Which of the
Question: 150 following inequalities shows all possible
15. Mr. Lastorka's science class is running values for the number of bags, b, that
experiments with an energy-efficient model electric Marco needs to order to meet his minimum
car. As the initial rate of energy delivered to the car,
measured in watts, increases, the number of requirement?
millimeters moved by the car from its starting  A. b ≥ 4
position increases exponentially. The results of  B. b ≥ 5
several trial runs are shown on the scatterplot graph  C. b ≥ 6
below.  D. b ≥ 7

Based on the data, the students in Mr. Lastorka's


class determine the exact equation involving
Watts, x, and total distance from start, y . They call
the function y = f(x). Mr. Lastorka then instructs his
class to reflect y = f(x) over the x-axis. He
challenges each student to determine the new
function and what it would mean from a physics
perspective. Four student pairs gave their answers
below. Who is correct, and for what reasons?
 A. Charles and Shannon, who identify the new
equation as y = -2x and explain that the new
graph indicates that the car is still moving
forward at the same rate as before.
 B. Michael and Lauren, who identify the new
equation as y = -2x and explain that the new
graph indicates the car is now moving in reverse
at the same rate as before.
 C. Matthew and Karen, who identify the new
equation as y = 2-x and explain that the new
