# 5th GRADE MATH STAAR TEST PRACTICE

Problem 11 :

A student will graph the point (5, 3) on a coordinate grid. Which steps can the student take in order to graph the point correctly?

A)  Start at the origin. Move 5 units up. Move 3 units right. Graph the point.

B)  Start at the origin. Move 5 units right. Move 3 units right. Graph the point.

C)  Start at the origin. Move 5 units up. Move 3 units up. Graph the point.

D)  Start at the origin. Move 5 units right. Move 3 units up. Graph the point.

Solution :

The given point can be compared with (x , y)

x - moving horizontally, y - moving vertically.

5 = moving right 5 units and 3 = moving up 3 units.

So, option D is correct.

Problem 12 :

What is the value of the expression shown?

4 [4.5 - 2(1.2)]

A)  8.4     B)  15.6      C)  12      D)  19.2

Solution :

= 4 [4.5 - 2(1.2)]

= 4[4.5 - 2.4]

= 4[2.1]

= 8.4

So, option A is correct.

Problem 13 :

Paula wants to buy 3 shirts and 2 belts. The shirts cost \$16.89 each, and the belts cost \$8.97 each. Paula has \$45. Which of these amounts is the best estimate of how much more money Paula needs in order to buy the shirts and belts?

A)  \$16    B)  \$10      C)  \$24       D)   \$5

Solution :

Cost of 1 shirt = 16.89

Cost of 1 belt = 8.97

Cost of 3 shirts + cost of 2 belts = 3(16.89) + 2(8.97)

= 50.67 + 17.94

= 68.61 approximately 69

Amount Paula has = 45

Difference = 69 - 45

= 24

So, option C is correct.

Problem 14 :

Ella finished a bike race in 37.6 minutes. Miranda finished the race 9  1/10 minutes sooner than Ella finished it. How many minutes did it take Miranda to finish the race?

F)   32.5 minutes          G)  46.7 minutes

H)   28.59 minutes        J)  Not here

Solution :

Time taken by Ella to finish the race = 37.6 minutes

Miranda finishes = 9  1/10 minutes sooner.

Difference = 37.6 - 9  1/10

= 37.6  - 91/10

= 37.6 - 9.1

= 28.5 minutes

So, option C is correct.

Problem 15 :

Four students each wrote down a number between 30 and 40. The list shows the numbers they wrote.

• Elly—35

• Ulysses—39

• Maggie—37

• Palmer—33

Which student wrote down a prime number?

A)  Elly     B)   Ulysses     C)  Maggie     D)   Palmer

Solution :

 Divisor of 35 :1, 5, 7, 35 Divisor of 39 :1, 3, 39 Divisor of 37 :1, 37 Divisor of 33 :1, 3, 11, 33

37 is the number having only two divisors. So, option C Maggie has written prime number.

Problem 16 :

What is the value of this expression?

Solution :

Problem 17 :

The graph shows three of the four vertices of parallelogram VWXY.

At which location on the coordinate grid could point Y be located?

A)  (1.5, 6.5)     B)  (6.5, 2)     C)  (6.5, 1.5)    D)  (2, 6.5)

Solution :

So, option C is correct.

Problem 18 :

A family spent \$93 at a carnival.

• They spent \$18 on tickets to the carnival and \$36 on food.

• They spent the rest of the money on games.

Which equation can be used to find g, the amount of money in dollars the family spent on games?

A)  93 = g + 36 −− 18        B)  93 = 18 + 36 − g

C)  93 = 36 − 18 − g         D)  93 = g + 36 + 18

Solution :

Amount that family has = \$93

Amount spent for tickets = 18

Amount spent for food = 36

Amount spent on games = 93 - (18 + 36)

g = 93 - 18 - 36

g + 18 + 36 = 93

So, option D is correct.

Problem 19 :

A student builds some rectangular prisms using cubes that each have a volume of 1 cubic inch. Which rectangular prism has a volume of 12 cubic inches?

Solution :

Option A :

Length = 3, width = 2, height = 4

Volume = 3(2)(4) ==> 24 cubic units

Option B :

Length = 3, width = 2, height = 2

Volume = 3(2)(2) ==> 12 cubic units

So, option B is correct.

Problem 20 :

Shauna is reading a 528 page book. She reads 22 pages every day. How many days will it take Shauna to read the entire book?

A)  506      B)  26        C)  24      D)  550

Solution :

Number of pages she reads everyday = 22

Total number of pages in the book = 528

Number of days taken to read the book completely = 528/22

= 24

So, option C is correct.
