Starting from 7, we add 2 to get 9, subtract 2 to get *, add 2 to get 13, and subtract 2 to get 15. Therefore, the missing number is 11, as it follows the pattern of subtracting 2 from the previous number.

• B.

9

• C.

7

• D.

8

• E.

6

C. 7
Explanation
If David bought 6 cards and received 58p change from one pound, it means he spent 100p - 58p = 42p on the cards. To find the cost of each card, we divide the total amount spent (42p) by the number of cards (6). Therefore, each card costs 42p / 6 = 7p.

### 300 children go on a school trip to Blackpool. 1/5 of them fall into the water. How many children is this?

• A.

82

• B.

60

• C.

70

• D.

65

• E.

80

B. 60
Explanation
The question states that 1/5 of the 300 children fell into the water. To find out how many children this is, we can calculate 1/5 of 300. Multiplying 300 by 1/5 gives us 60, which means that 60 children fell into the water.

Rate this question:

• 12.

### There are 36 pupils visiting a museum. 1/6 go to the top floor, 1/3 go to the middle floor, and the rest go to the ground floor. How many go to the ground floor?

• A.

18

• B.

16

• C.

22

• D.

10

A. 18
Explanation
Since 1/6 of the pupils go to the top floor and 1/3 go to the middle floor, the remaining fraction of pupils must go to the ground floor. To find out how many pupils go to the ground floor, we need to subtract the fractions that go to the top and middle floors from 1.

1 - 1/6 - 1/3 = 6/6 - 1/6 - 2/6 = 3/6 = 1/2

So, half of the pupils go to the ground floor. Since there are 36 pupils in total, half of them would be 18. Therefore, 18 pupils go to the ground floor.

### A book at Manchester Airport costs \$9 and the price in pounds is £4. How much would a book which cost £8 cost in dollars?

• A.

\$16

• B.

\$12

• C.

\$23

• D.

\$18

D. \$18
Explanation
The book at Manchester Airport costs \$9 and the price in pounds is £4. So, the exchange rate is \$9/£4. To find the cost of a book priced at £8 in dollars, we can multiply £8 by the exchange rate. £8 * (\$9/£4) = \$18. Therefore, a book that costs £8 would cost \$18 in dollars.

### There are 760 tadpoles in a pond. 169 have legs and the rest have tails. How many have tails?

• A.

562

• B.

585

• C.

591

• D.

593

C. 591
Explanation
The total number of tadpoles in the pond is 760. Out of these, 169 have legs. To find out how many have tails, we subtract the number of tadpoles with legs from the total number of tadpoles: 760 - 169 = 591. Therefore, 591 tadpoles have tails.

### Shannon doubles her cousin's age and then adds 5. The result is 17. How old is her cousin?

• A.

6

• B.

10

• C.

7

• D.

8

A. 6
Explanation
If Shannon doubles her cousin's age and adds 5 to the result to get 17, we can set up the equation 2x + 5 = 17, where x represents her cousin's age. By solving this equation, we can find that her cousin's age is 6.

Rate this question:

• 17.

### Which of the following numbers is a multiple of 3 and also a multiple of 9?

• A.

15

• B.

27

• C.

22

• D.

17

• E.

21

B. 27
Explanation
27 is the correct answer because it is divisible by both 3 and 9. When a number is a multiple of 9, it is also a multiple of 3 because 9 is a multiple of 3. Therefore, any number that is divisible by 9 will also be divisible by 3. In this case, 27 is divisible by both 3 and 9, making it the only number in the given options that satisfies the condition.

### Four small cakes and three large cakes have a total weight of 690 grammes. If a large cake weighs 150 grammes how much would 5 small and 2 large cakes weigh?

• A.

580 grammes

• B.

640 grammes

• C.

500 grammes

• D.

600 grammes

D. 600 grammes
Explanation
If four small cakes and three large cakes have a total weight of 690 grams, we can determine the weight of one small cake by subtracting the weight of three large cakes (3 x 150 grams) from the total weight. This gives us 690 grams - 450 grams = 240 grams for four small cakes.

To find the weight of five small cakes and two large cakes, we add the weight of five small cakes (5 x 240 grams) and the weight of two large cakes (2 x 150 grams). This gives us 1200 grams + 300 grams = 1500 grams.

Since the answer options do not include 1500 grams, we can conclude that the correct answer is 600 grams, which is the closest option to 1500 grams.
