In algebra there are a number of words that mean just the same as add, subtract, multiply and divide. Each words calls for one of the four actions. The quiz below is designed to see how well you understand the vocabulary used. Give it a try and all the best!

• 1.

### More than

• A.

Subtract

• B.

• C.

Divide

Explanation
The given answer is "add". In the context of the question, which is incomplete, it can be inferred that the question is asking for a mathematical operation that should be used with the words "more than", "subtract", and "divide". In this case, the only suitable operation is "add", as it is the opposite of "subtract" and can be used to combine or increase quantities.

Rate this question:

• 2.

### Plus

• A.

• B.

Subtract

• C.

Multipy

Explanation

Rate this question:

• 3.

### Sum

• A.

• B.

Subtract

• C.

Divide

Explanation
The correct answer is "add" because the word "sum" refers to the result of adding two or more numbers together. Therefore, "add" is the most appropriate operation to perform in order to find the sum.

Rate this question:

• 4.

### Minus

• A.

• B.

Subtract

• C.

Divide

B. Subtract
Explanation
The word "subtract" is the correct answer because it is the only word that directly relates to the given word "minus". "Subtract" is a mathematical operation that involves taking away one quantity from another, which is similar to the concept of "minus" where one number is being reduced or deducted from another. The other three words, "add", "divide", and "multiply", do not have a direct correlation to "minus" and involve different mathematical operations.

Rate this question:

• 5.

### Product

• A.

• B.

Subtract

• C.

Multiply

C. Multiply
Explanation
The correct answer is "multiply" because when we talk about a "product," it refers to the result of multiplying two or more numbers together. In this context, "add" and "subtract" are not relevant as they involve combining or taking away quantities, whereas "multiply" specifically refers to the operation of finding the product.

Rate this question:

• 6.

### Quotient

• A.

• B.

Divide

• C.

Multiply

B. Divide
Explanation
The word "quotient" refers to the result of dividing one number by another. Therefore, the operation that is associated with finding the quotient is division.

Rate this question:

• 7.

### Per

• A.

Divide

• B.

Multiply

• C.

Subtract

A. Divide
Explanation
The word "per" is commonly used to indicate division in mathematical expressions. For example, "5 per 2" means dividing 5 by 2. Therefore, the correct answer is "divide" as it is the operation that is typically associated with the word "per".

Rate this question:

• 8.

### Difference

• A.

• B.

Subtract

• C.

Divide

B. Subtract
Explanation
The given answer is "subtract" because the word "difference" suggests finding the result of subtracting one quantity from another. When we calculate the difference between two numbers, we are essentially subtracting one number from the other to determine the gap or distance between them. Therefore, subtracting is the correct operation to perform when finding the difference.

Rate this question:

• 9.

### Sum

• A.

Subtract

• B.

• C.

Multiply

Explanation
The given options are sum, subtract, add, and multiply. Out of these options, "add" is the correct answer. This suggests that the question is asking for a mathematical operation, and "add" is the operation of combining two or more numbers to find their total.

Rate this question:

• 10.

### Split

• A.

Multiply

• B.

Divide

• C.

Subtract

B. Divide
Explanation
The given answer, "divide," is correct because it is one of the basic arithmetic operations. When we divide two numbers, we are finding how many times one number can be divided by another. This operation is the opposite of multiplication and can be used to find the quotient or the size of equal groups.

Rate this question:

• 11.

### Half

• A.

• B.

Divide

• C.

Multiply

B. Divide
Explanation
The word "half" suggests dividing something into two equal parts. Therefore, the correct operation to perform in this case would be division.

Rate this question:

• 12.

### Of

• A.

Subtract

• B.

Divide

• C.

Multiply

C. Multiply
Explanation
The given answer "multiply" is the correct option because "multiply" is a mathematical operation that involves combining two or more numbers to get a product. It is the opposite of addition and can be used to find the total when a number is repeated a certain number of times. In this context, it can be inferred that the question is asking for a mathematical operation, and out of the given options, "multiply" is the only operation mentioned.

Rate this question:

• 13.

### Twice

• A.

Divide

• B.

Multiply

• C.

Subtract

B. Multiply
Explanation
The word "twice" suggests that we need to perform an operation that involves multiplying. Since "multiply" is the only option related to multiplication, it is the correct answer.

Rate this question:

• 14.

### Left over

• A.

Subtract

• B.

• C.

Multiply

A. Subtract
Explanation
The term "left over" implies that there is something remaining or leftover after a certain action or process. In this context, the correct answer "subtract" makes sense as subtracting one number from another would result in the leftover or remaining amount. The other options, such as add or multiply, do not convey the idea of something being left over.

Rate this question:

• 15.

### Decrease

• A.

Divide

• B.

Subtract

• C.

Multiply

B. Subtract
Explanation
The word "subtract" is the correct answer because it is the only option that means to take away or deduct a certain amount from a given quantity. The other options, "decrease," "divide," and "multiply," do not have the same meaning as "subtract" and are not synonymous with it. Therefore, "subtract" is the appropriate choice in this context.

Rate this question:

• 16.

### Together

• A.

Subtract

• B.

Multiply

• C.

Explanation
The word "together" suggests a sense of combining or joining things. When we add numbers, we are combining them to find the total or sum. Therefore, "add" is the correct answer in this context.

Rate this question:

• 17.

### And

• A.

Divide

• B.

• C.

Multiply

Explanation
The given answer "add" is the correct answer because the words "and," "divide," and "multiply" are mathematical operations, while "add" is the only word that does not represent a mathematical operation.

Rate this question:

• 18.

### Increase

• A.

Subtract

• B.

Divide

• C.

Explanation
The word "add" is the correct answer because it is the only option that means to combine or join two or more numbers or quantities together to find their total. "Increase" means to make something larger or higher, "subtract" means to take away or deduct one number from another, and "divide" means to separate or distribute into equal parts. Only "add" fits the context of combining numbers.

Rate this question:

• 19.

### Take away

• A.

Subtract

• B.

• C.

Divide

A. Subtract
Explanation
The term "take away" implies the action of removing or deducting something. In this context, the word "subtract" is the most appropriate answer as it directly relates to the concept of taking away or deducting. The other options, such as add or divide, do not align with the meaning of "take away." Therefore, subtract is the correct answer.

Rate this question:

• 20.

### Less than

• A.

Divide

• B.

• C.

Subtract

C. Subtract
Explanation
This question is incomplete and not readable, so it is not possible to generate an explanation for the given correct answer.
