ANSWERS TO SAMPLE QUESTIONS – MATHS ASSESSMENT

QUESTION 1

Q1. 11

EXPLANATION: 71 + 6 ÷ 7 = 11. (Remember, to work out the original number, you must work backwards. In order for you to work backwards, you must do the opposite to what the machine is telling you to do).

QUESTION 2

Q2. 8.53

EXPLANATION: 71 + 6 ÷ 7 = 11. (Remember, to work out the original number, you must work backwards. In order for you to work backwards, you must do the opposite to what the machine is telling you to do). between 8.5 and 8.6, the numbers go up by .01 each time. For example 8.5, 8.51, 8.52, 8.53 and so forth.

QUESTION 3

Q3. 24

EXPLANATION: starting with the number 4, you can get 6 numbers (4931, 4913, 4319, 4391, 4139, 4193). This can be done for all 4 numbers (if you start with a different number; you will be able to make 6 different numbers). Therefore 6 groups of 4 = 24.

QUESTION 4

Q4. B = 23

EXPLANATION: James was 16 = 1965 + 16 = 1981. So Sam died in 1981, 1981 – 1958 = 23.

QUESTION 7

Q7. £9.03

EXPLANATION: 25.99 + 19.98 + 25.00 = 70.97.

To work out the change from £80.00 = 80.00 – 70.97 = £9.03
