## EIAT Test - Sample Questions

In ancient times, stowaways found onboard a sailing ship were at its captain's mercy and maritime law ___ the captain to throw them overboard.

(5x + 10) / (2xy + 4y) = 1

y = ?

The numerator: 5𝑥 + 10 = 5(𝑥 + 2).

The denominator: 2𝑥𝑦 + 4𝑦 = 2𝑦(𝑥 + 2).

The result is: = = .

You know that 1, thus = 1. Multiply both sides by 2𝑦:

5 = 2𝑦

Hence:

y=2.5

Therefore, the correct answer is 1.

A tank with a water level of 1 meter is shown in the diagram below.

A rock with a volume of 1[m3] is thrown into the tank.

The rock is porous (i.e. contains air) in a ratio of 50%.

What will be the new water level?

Options (in meters):

We will begin by calculating the initial volume of water in the tank:

Vwater = 1[m]*1[m]*2[m] = 2[m3]

The volume of the rock is given: 1[m3]

In addition, it is given that 50% of the rock is air, therefore the actual volume the rock displaces is:

Vrock = 50%*1[m3] = 0.5[m3]

Thus, the total volume of water + rock is equal to 2.5 cubic meters.

We will calculate the new water level according the new total volume in the tank:

Vwater+rock = h[m]*1[m]*2[m] = 2.5[m3]

We will isolate the height and obtain:

h = 1.25 meters.

Therefore, the correct answer is 4.
