# What Do You Know About Map Folding?

10 Questions | Total Attempts: 103  Settings  Map folding is a subtopic in the mathematics of paper folding, which is greatly associated with stamp folding. It simply is a problem in which you have to track the number of ways a piece of paper can be folded. Even though it can used for most types of paper, it is geared towards the number of ways a piece of map can be folded. Now, let's see what you know about map folding in the quiz below.
