### Calculator not allowed: How many different factors of 100 are there?

9
Explanation
The question asks for the number of different factors of 100. To find the factors of a number, we need to find all the numbers that divide evenly into it. The factors of 100 are 1, 2, 4, 5, 10, 20, 25, 50, and 100. So, there are 9 different factors of 100.

### Calculator not allowed: Find the highest common factor of 48 and 72

24
Explanation
The highest common factor (HCF) of two numbers is the largest number that divides both of them without leaving a remainder. In this case, we can find the HCF of 48 and 72 by listing out their factors and finding the largest one they have in common. The factors of 48 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 16, 24, and 48. The factors of 72 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 9, 12, 18, 24, 36, and 72. The largest factor that they both have in common is 24, so the HCF of 48 and 72 is 24.

### Calculator not allowed Find the Lowest Common Multiple of 24 and 18

72
Explanation
The lowest common multiple (LCM) of two numbers is the smallest number that is divisible by both numbers. To find the LCM of 24 and 18, we can list the multiples of each number and find the smallest number that appears in both lists. The multiples of 24 are 24, 48, 72, 96, 120, ... and the multiples of 18 are 18, 36, 54, 72, 90, ... The smallest number that appears in both lists is 72, so 72 is the LCM of 24 and 18.

### Calculator not allowed Given that 7 x 8 = 56, what is 70 x 800?

56000
56,000
Explanation
The given question asks to calculate 70 x 800. To find the answer, we can use the distributive property of multiplication. We know that 70 = 7 x 10 and 800 = 8 x 100. Therefore, 70 x 800 = (7 x 10) x (8 x 100) = 7 x 8 x 10 x 100 = 56 x 1000 = 56,000.

### Calculator not allowed Given that 7 x 8 = 56, what is 0.08 x 0.7?

0.056
Explanation
To solve this question, we can multiply 0.08 by 0.7 without using a calculator. We can start by multiplying 8 by 7, which equals 56. Since there are two decimal places in the question (0.08 and 0.7), we need to move the decimal point two places to the left in our answer. Therefore, the answer is 0.056.

Rate this question:

• 20.

### Calculator not allowed Given that 7 x 8 = 56, what is 5.6  ÷  7?

0.8
Explanation
To find the value of 5.6 divided by 7, we can use the fact that 7 multiplied by 8 is equal to 56. Since 5.6 is 10 times smaller than 56, we can divide 56 by 10 to get the answer. Therefore, 5.6 divided by 7 is equal to 0.8.

Rate this question:

• 21.

### Calculator not allowed Given that 7 x 8 = 56, what is 5600  ÷  0.8?

7000
Explanation
To find the answer, we divide 5600 by 0.8. Since calculator is not allowed, we can use long division method. Dividing 5600 by 0.8 gives us 7000. Therefore, the answer is 7000.

• A.

9:12

• B.

7:3

• C.

12:9

• D.

3:7

C. 12:9
Explanation
The correct answer is 12:9. This ratio represents the distribution of marbles where for every 12 marbles, 9 marbles are given to one person and the remaining 3 marbles are given to another person. This ratio can be simplified to 4:3, which means that for every 4 marbles, 3 marbles are given to one person.

### Calculator not allowed A teacher earning £25,000 a year is given a pay rise.  The new salary if £26,000.  What is the percentage increase in salary?

4
4%
Explanation
The percentage increase in salary can be calculated by finding the difference between the new salary and the old salary, which is £26,000 - £25,000 = £1,000. Then, divide this difference by the old salary (£1,000 / £25,000) and multiply by 100 to convert it into a percentage. This gives us a percentage increase of 4%.

### Starting from n=1, what is the 4th numer in a sequence whose general term is n2  +  1?

26
677
Explanation
The general term of the sequence is n^2 + 1. Plugging in n=1 gives us 1^2 + 1 = 2. Plugging in n=2 gives us 2^2 + 1 = 5. Plugging in n=3 gives us 3^2 + 1 = 10. Plugging in n=4 gives us 4^2 + 1 = 17. Therefore, the 4th number in the sequence is 17.

### Which is the general term for this function machine? 1 ------> 3       2 ------> 7       3 ------> 11       4 ------> 15       5 ------> 19       n ------>

• A.

2n + 1

• B.

4n - 1

• C.

• D.

N + 2n

B. 4n - 1
Explanation
The general term for this function machine is 4n - 1. This can be determined by observing the pattern in the given inputs and outputs. Each output is 1 less than 4 times the corresponding input. Therefore, the general rule for this function machine is to multiply the input by 4 and then subtract 1.

### Simplify the following expression: 6a + 3b - 8a + 2b

5b-2a
5b - 2a
Explanation
The given expression involves adding and subtracting variables. To simplify it, we can combine like terms by adding the coefficients of the variables. In this case, we have 6a and -8a, which can be simplified to -2a. Similarly, we have 3b and 2b, which can be simplified to 5b. Therefore, the simplified expression is 5b - 2a.

### If I walk a route which measures 7.5cm on a map with a scale of 1:100,000, how far will I actually walk in km?

7.5
7.5km
7.5 km
Explanation
If the map has a scale of 1:100,000, it means that 1 cm on the map represents 100,000 cm in reality. Therefore, if you walk a route that measures 7.5 cm on the map, you will actually walk a distance of 7.5 x 100,000 cm in reality. Converting this to kilometers, you divide by 100,000 to get the answer of 7.5 km.

### The linear scale factor between ABC and A'B'C' is 0.4. What is the length of A'C'?

10
10cm
Explanation
The length of A'C' is 10cm. This is because the linear scale factor between ABC and A'B'C' is 0.4, which means that every length in ABC is reduced to 0.4 times its original length in A'B'C'. Since the length of AC is 10cm, the length of A'C' will also be 10cm.

Rate this question:

• 35.

### The linear scale factor between ABC and A'B'C' is 0.4. What is the length of B'C'?

6
6cm
Explanation
The length of B'C' is 6 or 6cm because the linear scale factor between ABC and A'B'C' is given as 0.4. This means that every length in ABC is multiplied by 0.4 to get the corresponding length in A'B'C'. Since the length of BC is not specified, we can assume it to be 6 or 6cm and multiply it by 0.4 to get the length of B'C', which is also 6 or 6cm.

### What is the surface area of a cuboid with dimensions 7cm, 10cm and 13cm? (enter the digits only, not the units)

582
Explanation
The surface area of a cuboid can be calculated by adding the areas of all six faces. The formula for the surface area of a cuboid is 2(length × width + length × height + width × height). Plugging in the given dimensions of 7cm, 10cm, and 13cm into the formula, we get 2(7 × 10 + 7 × 13 + 10 × 13) = 2(70 + 91 + 130) = 2(291) = 582.

### What is the average speed for a journey of 175km undertaken in 2 hours and 30 mins? (enter the digits only, not the units)

70
Explanation
The average speed for a journey is calculated by dividing the total distance traveled by the total time taken. In this case, the total distance is 175 km and the total time is 2 hours and 30 minutes, which is equivalent to 2.5 hours. Dividing 175 km by 2.5 hours gives us an average speed of 70 km/h.

### How many planes of symmetry does a cuboid with dimensions 4cm x 4cm x 9cm have?

5
Explanation
A cuboid with dimensions 4cm x 4cm x 9cm has 5 planes of symmetry. This is because a plane of symmetry divides an object into two equal halves that are mirror images of each other. In this case, there are 5 different planes that can divide the cuboid into two equal halves. These planes can be imagined as cutting the cuboid vertically in the middle, horizontally in the middle, and diagonally through the corners.
