About This Quiz & Worksheet

The CLEP scientific calculator can be used to solve implicit and explicit equations. To pass the quiz, you'll need to use the CLEP scientific calculator or your own scientific calculator to find the variable x in several practice problems.

Quiz & Worksheet Goals

You'll be asked to find x for the following equations:

  • x = 1 - sin(x)
  • x^2 = x - sin(x)
  • tan(x) = 3x^2
  • 3^x = 4 + x
  • cos(x) sin^2(x) = x - 1

Skills Practiced

You'll practice the following skills:

  • Problem solving - use acquired knowledge to solve math problems using a scientific calculator
  • Knowledge application - use what you know about sine, cosine and tangent to find x in several practice problems
  • Reading comprehension - ensure you draw the most important information from the related lesson on how to solve equations using the CLEP scientific calculator
