Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    1/4" is the same as 2/8.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because both 1/4 and 2/8 represent the same fraction, which is equal to 0.25. When simplified, both fractions have the same numerator and denominator, meaning they are equivalent.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    5/8" is the same as 10/16".

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The given statement is true because when we simplify both fractions, 5/8 and 10/16, we find that they are equivalent. By multiplying the numerator and denominator of 5/8 by 2, we get 10/16. Therefore, 5/8" is indeed the same as 10/16".

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    16/16" is the same as 2"

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "16/16" is the same as "2" is false. This is because when we simplify the fraction 16/16, we get 1, not 2. The numerator and denominator are both 16, so they cancel out, leaving us with 1. Therefore, the correct answer is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    1-5/8" is the same as 11/8"

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because 1-5/8" is not the same as 11/8". 1-5/8" is equal to 13/8", not 11/8".

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    There are 4, 16ths in a quarter inch.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In a quarter inch, there are four equal parts called 16ths. This means that if we divide a quarter inch into 16 equal parts, each part would be called a 16th. Therefore, the statement "There are 4, 16ths in a quarter inch" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    How man sixteenths in 9/16" over a half inch?

    Correct Answer
    one, 1
    Explanation
    There is only one sixteenth in 9/16". The question is asking how many sixteenths are there in 9/16", which is equivalent to one sixteenth.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    How many sixteenths are in One quarter of an inch?

    Correct Answer
    4, four
    Explanation
    One quarter of an inch is equal to 4 sixteenths. This is because there are 16 sixteenths in one whole inch, and one quarter of an inch is one-fourth of that. So, if we divide 16 by 4, we get 4 sixteenths in one quarter of an inch.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    How many eights are in an inch?

    Correct Answer
    8, eight
    Explanation
    In the given question, the answer "8, eight" implies that there are 8 instances of the number eight in an inch. This answer is correct because an inch is a unit of measurement and does not contain any specific number of eights. Therefore, the answer simply states that there are 8 eights in an inch without any additional context or calculation.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    How many sixteenths are in 3/8 of an inch?

    Correct Answer
    6, six
    Explanation
    To find out how many sixteenths are in 3/8 of an inch, we need to convert 3/8 into sixteenths. Since there are 16 sixteenths in one whole inch, we can multiply 3/8 by 16/1 to get the answer. Multiplying the numerators gives us 3x16=48, and multiplying the denominators gives us 8x1=8. Therefore, 3/8 of an inch is equal to 48/8 or 6 sixteenths.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    .250 is the same as _________

    Correct Answer
    1/4
    Explanation
    The fraction 1/4 is equivalent to the decimal 0.25. When we multiply 0.25 by 100, we get 25. Therefore, 0.25 is equal to 25/100. Simplifying this fraction by dividing both the numerator and denominator by 25, we get 1/4. Hence, 250 is the same as 1/4.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    .312 is the same as _________

    Correct Answer
    5/16
    Explanation
    The given question asks for an equivalent fraction to 312. To find the equivalent fraction, we need to simplify the given fraction. By dividing both the numerator and denominator by their greatest common divisor, which is 4, we get 312/4 = 78/1. Therefore, the equivalent fraction to 312 is 78/1, which can also be written as 78.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    .875 is the same as _________

    Correct Answer
    7/8
    Explanation
    The decimal number .875 is equivalent to the fraction 7/8. To convert a decimal to a fraction, we can write the decimal as a fraction with the decimal value as the numerator and a power of 10 as the denominator. In this case, .875 can be written as 875/1000. Simplifying this fraction by dividing both the numerator and denominator by 125 gives us 7/8.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    The decimal for 9/16 is _________

    Correct Answer
    .562
    Explanation
    The decimal for 9/16 is .562 because when you divide 9 by 16, you get a quotient of 0.5625. However, since the question asks for the decimal, we round down to the nearest thousandth, which is .562.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    The decimal for 13/16 is ____________

    Correct Answer
    .812
    Explanation
    The decimal for 13/16 is .812 because when we divide 13 by 16, we get the decimal value of 0.8125. However, since the question asks for the decimal to be rounded to three decimal places, we round down and the final answer is .812.
