### If there are 48 beats in the whole song, how many measures are in a song, and what operation do you use to solve this problem?

• A.

10 measures, division

• B.

8 measures, multiplication

• C.

12 measures, division

C. 12 measures, division
Explanation
To determine the number of measures in a song, we need to divide the total number of beats in the song by the number of beats in each measure. Since the question states that there are 48 beats in the whole song, we need to divide this by the number of beats in each measure. Therefore, the correct answer is 12 measures, using division.

### If you play 40 beats only, how many measures do you play?

• A.

6 measures

• B.

8 measures

• C.

10 measures

C. 10 measures
Explanation
If you play 40 beats, and assuming each measure has 4 beats, then you can calculate the number of measures by dividing the total beats (40) by the beats per measure (4). Therefore, 40 divided by 4 equals 10 measures.

Rate this question:

• 9.

### If you play 6 measures and your partners play 3 measures, how many beats do you play in all?
