    The word Millimetre literally means

    • A.

      One tenth of a centimetre

    • B.

    Prefix Symbol Value Example Meaning
    Milli m One thousandth of 1 mm 1 millimetre
    Centi c One hundredth of 1 cm 1 centimetre
    Deci d One Tenth of 1 dB 1 decibel
    Kilo k 1000 times 1 kg 1 kilogram

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    12 X _ = 72

    Correct Answer
    6
    Explanation
    The equation 12 multiplied by a number equals 72. To find the missing number, we need to divide 72 by 12. The result is 6, which is the missing number that, when multiplied by 12, equals 72.

  • 4. 

    ½ X 10 =

    • A.

      20

    • B.

      5

    • C.

      1

    • D.

      D

    Correct Answer
    B. 5
    Explanation
    ½ means one of two pieces, or, one half. The question ½ X 10 is the same as asking for half of 10. If you divide ten in half you are left with two groups of five. One of these groups, or one half, would equal 5.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    0.60 is the same as

    • A.

      60/10

    • B.

      6/10

    • C.

      6/100

    • D.

      6/1

    Correct Answer
    B. 6/10
    Explanation
    0.60 is the same as 6/10 because when we divide 60 by 10, we get 6. The number 6 represents the numerator in the fraction, and the number 10 represents the denominator. Therefore, the fraction 6/10 is equivalent to the decimal 0.60.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    A triangle is

    • A.

      Anything pointy

    • B.

      A sandwich

    • C.

      Any shape with three sides and three angles

    • D.

      The roof of a house

    Correct Answer
    C. Any shape with three sides and three angles
    Explanation
    Although triangles are pointy, and roofs and sandwiches can often take the shape of a triangle, roofs, sandwiches and pointy things are not always triangles. Tri means 3 and angle means angle, therefore, the best description is a two dimensional shape with three sides and three angles.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    The 3 dimensions in ‘3D’ are

    • A.

      Up/down, left/right and in/out

    • B.

      Space, time and matter

    • C.

      Darlek, Human and Aliens

    • D.

      A really cool Sci-fi series.

    Correct Answer
    A. Up/down, left/right and in/out
    Explanation
    When looking at a two dimensional shape (2D), such as a square, it can be measured in two ways, height (up and down) and width (left and right). A three dimensional shape (3D), such as a cube, can be measured by its height (up and down), width (left and right) and depth (in and out).

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    52 =

    • A.

      10

    • B.

      7

    • C.

      5

    • D.

      25

    Correct Answer
    D. 25
    Explanation
    52 or 5 squared means 5 X 5. The little two lets you know how many times the number is multiplied by itself. 52 means that when you write it out, there will be two 5s in the equation (5 X 5). Bigger numbers mean you multiply it more times, for example 53 would mean 5 X 5 X 5, 54 would mean 5 X 5 X 5 X 5 etc.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    What is the next number in this pattern256, 128, 64, 32, __ 

    • A.

      16

    • B.

      8

    • C.

      31

    • D.

      0

    Correct Answer
    A. 16
    Explanation
    The given pattern is a sequence where each number is halved to get the next number. Starting with 256, we divide it by 2 to get 128. Then, we divide 128 by 2 to get 64, and so on. Therefore, the next number in the pattern would be 16, as we divide 32 by 2.
