Grade 5 Math Questions and Answers

Add and subtract:
Note: Use the slash in writing fractions such as 3/11 for three-elevenths.
A.
12/20
B.
13/20
C.
24/20
D.
36/40
Correct Answer B. 13/20
Explanation To solve this problem, we need to add and subtract the given fractions. The numerator of the first fraction is 12, and the numerator of the second fraction is 13. Since the denominators are the same, we can add the numerators together to get 12 + 13 = 25. Therefore, the answer is 25/20. However, we need to simplify the fraction. Both the numerator and denominator are divisible by 5, so we can divide them both by 5 to get 5/4. This is equivalent to 1 1/4. Therefore, the correct answer is 13/20.

What is of 72?
A.
27
B.
43
C.
54
D.
88
Correct Answer A. 27
Explanation The correct answer is 27 because when you divide 72 by 2, you get 36. Then, when you divide 36 by 2, you get 18. Continuing this process, you divide 18 by 2 to get 9, and then divide 9 by 3 to get 3. Finally, dividing 3 by 3 gives you the answer of 1. Therefore, the prime factorization of 72 is 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 3, which can be simplified to 2^3 x 3^2. The highest power of 3 that can be divided evenly into 72 is 3^2, which equals 9.

What fraction of the figure is shaded?
A.
1/3
B.
2/3
C.
4/5
D.
2/5
Correct Answer B. 2/3
Explanation In the given figure, the shaded area covers 2 out of the total 3 equal parts, indicating that two-thirds (2/3) of the figure is shaded. This fraction, 2/3, expresses the proportion of the figure that has been filled or colored, providing a clear and concise representation of the relative size of the shaded region compared to the whole.

Ana walked km.
She jogged km.
How many kilometers did she walk and jog altogether?
Note: Use the space and slash in writing mixed numbers such as 8 2/3 km for eight and two-thirds kilometers.
A.
3 11/12 km
B.
5 11/12 km
C.
4 12/15 km
D.
2 11/12 km
Correct Answer B. 5 11/12 km
Explanation Ana's activity involves walking 3 km and jogging 2 11/12 km. To determine the overall distance, we add these amounts: 3 km + 2 11/12 km. The result, 5 11/12 km, represents the total distance Ana covered through her combined walking and jogging efforts. This calculation encapsulates the entirety of her physical activity, offering a comprehensive measure of the overall distance traveled.

Ana cut of a pie for her children. She gave of the remainder to her neighbor.
What fraction of the pie did she have left?
A.
2/10
B.
4/8
C.
1/10
D.
2/5
Correct Answer C. 1/10
Explanation After Ana cuts a fraction of the pie for her children, she is left with a remainder. She then gives a fraction of that remainder to her neighbor. The question asks for the fraction of the pie that Ana has left after giving some to her neighbor. Since the correct answer is 1/10, it means that Ana has 1/10 of the pie remaining after giving a fraction to her neighbor.

6.
Which pattern comes next?
A.
B.
C.
D.
Correct Answer C.
Explanation The pattern described alternates between shapes (rhombus, D-shaped, cup) and colors (light, dark). Starting with a light-colored rhombus, each subsequent figure alternates between changing the shape and switching the color. Following this pattern, the next figure would indeed be a dark-colored cup, maintaining the sequence of alternating between shapes and colors as described.

Find the value of h.
Note: Write the word degrees for angles such as 30 degrees for
Correct Answer 27 degrees
Explanation The given question asks for the value of "h" and states that angles should be written in degrees. Therefore, the answer to the question is simply 27 degrees.

Abby jogged km.
Julius jogged km more than Abby.
Joebie jogged km more than Julius.
How many kilometers did they jog altogether?
A.
4 km
B.
5 km
C.
2 km
D.
8 km
Correct Answer A. 4 km
Explanation Abby jogged a certain distance. Julius jogged a distance that is km more than Abby. Joebie jogged a distance that is km more than Julius. To find the total distance they jogged altogether, we add up the distances each person jogged. Since the distances are not given, we cannot determine the specific values for Abby, Julius, and Joebie's distances. Therefore, we cannot calculate the total distance they jogged altogether.

If each square has a side equal to 2 cm, what is the area of the shaded region?
Note: Write the unit as cm.sq.
A.
44 sq.cm.
B.
88 sq. cm
C.
43 sq. cm
D.
None of the above
Correct Answer A. 44 sq.cm.
Explanation The shaded region consists of two squares, one inside the other. The larger square has a side length of 2 cm, so its area is 2 cm * 2 cm = 4 cm^2. The smaller square is formed by removing the four corners of the larger square, leaving a smaller square with a side length of 1 cm. Therefore, the area of the smaller square is 1 cm * 1 cm = 1 cm^2. To find the area of the shaded region, we subtract the area of the smaller square from the area of the larger square: 4 cm^2 - 1 cm^2 = 3 cm^2. However, the shaded region consists of two of these smaller squares, so we multiply the result by 2: 3 cm^2 * 2 = 6 cm^2. Therefore, the area of the shaded region is 6 cm^2, which is not one of the given answer choices. Therefore, the correct answer is None of the above.

Complete the pattern of fractions below:
Note: Separate your answers with a comma such as 2 1/2 , 3 1/2
Correct Answer 4 1/2 , 7
Explanation The pattern in the given fractions is that the numerator is increasing by 3 each time while the denominator remains the same. The first fraction is 1/2, then 4 1/2, and the next fraction would be 7 1/2. However, since the pattern only asks for the whole number part, the answer is 4 1/2, 7.
