  • Question 1

Write the missing number in the calculation below:

 

93  ÷    =  31

CORRECT ANSWER
3

Notice that 31 × 3 = 93
  • Question 2

Write the missing number in the calculation below:

 

572 -   = 444

CORRECT ANSWER
128

572 - 444 = 128, so 572 - 128 = 444
  • Question 3

Look at the following price list.

 

Jill has a £5 note.

She buys 3 notepads, a ruler and 2 ballpoint pens.                                         

How much change does she get in pence?

 

(Just write the number)

CORRECT ANSWER
70
EDDIE SAYS
3 notepads cost 3 × 95p = 285p
A ruler costs 75p
2 ballpoint pens cost 2 × 35p = 70p
She spends 285p + 75p + 70p = 430p
She gets 500p - 430p = 70p change.
  • Question 4

What is 50% of a tenth?

Write your answer as a decimal.

 

CORRECT ANSWER
0.05
EDDIE SAYS
On tenth is 0.1 or 0.10.
50% or half of 0.10 is 0.05

not a multiple of 4 C D

 

CORRECT ANSWER

Column A

Column B

A
528
B
360
C
414
D
234
EDDIE SAYS
You could do the divisions or.... remember that:
A number is divisible by 4 if the number formed by its last two digits is divisible by 4.

528 is divisible by 4 because 28 is divisible by 4.
360 is divisible by 4 because 60 is divisible by 4.
414 is not divisible by 4 because 14 is not divisible by 4.
234 is not divisible by 4 because 34 is not divisible by 4.
  • Question 6

What is 50% of 25.6?

Write your answer as a decimal.                                     

 

CORRECT ANSWER
12.8
EDDIE SAYS
256 ÷ 2 = 128
25.6 ÷ 2 = 12.8
  • Question 7

90° is 1/4 of the circle, so 45° is 1/8 of the circle.
160 ÷ 8 = 20
  • Question 16

 
 
  Alfie

                 

 
  
  Jaz


For every 2 toy cars that Alfie has, Jaz has 3.

 

Alfie actually has 30 toy cars.

How many does Jaz have?

  cm2 

(Just write the number)

CORRECT ANSWER
51
EDDIE SAYS
There are 49 full squares and 4 half squares.
  • Question 19

Calculate:

 

25% of 364

 

CORRECT ANSWER
91
EDDIE SAYS
1% of 364 is 364 ÷ 100 = 3.64
25% of 364 is 25 × 3.64 = 91
Alternative 25% is the same as 1/4, so just work out 364 ÷ 4 = 91
  • Question 20

Select the factors of 24 from this list of numbers.

 

1     2     4     8     12     16     20     24     46     48     50

CORRECT ANSWER
1
2
4
8
12
24
EDDIE SAYS
These are all the numbers which divide into 24 exactly without leaving a remainder.
  • Question 21

Calculate:

 

(7 + 25) ÷ (2 x 4)                   

CORRECT ANSWER
4
EDDIE SAYS
7 + 25 = 32
2 × 4 = 8
32 ÷ 8 = 4
  • Question 22

Calculate the size of angle a in the diagram.

Do not use a protractor (angle measurer).                          

 

 

         

         Not to scale

  ° 

(Just write the number)

CORRECT ANSWER
140
EDDIE SAYS
The angles at a point add to 360°
a = 360° - (30° + 90° + 100°) = 360° - 220° = 140°
  • Question 23

m stands for a number.

4 more than m is m + 4.

 

Match the number sentences on the left to the algebra expressions on the right.

 

CORRECT ANSWER

Column A

Column B

5 more than m
m + 5
2 more than three times m
3m + 2
5 less than m
m - 5
5 less than twice m
2m - 5
EDDIE SAYS
twice m is 2m
5 less than twice m will be 2m - 5
  • Question 24

Here is a parallelogram drawn on a graph.

What are the coordinates of the point at the top right?

 

CORRECT ANSWER
(8, 7)
EDDIE SAYS
Look at the bottom two points, whose x coordinates differ by 3
The top points will also have x coordinates which differ by 3. The x coordinate will be 5 + 3 = 8
The y coordinate of the missing point will be 7 as it is level in height with (5, 7)
  • Question 25

Anne, Bill and Charlie compare the coins in their pockets.

Here are their results.

 

Anne and Bill have £2.25 in total.

Anne and Charlie have £1.65 in total.

How much does Charlie have?

  

 p 

(Just write the number)

CORRECT ANSWER
90
EDDIE SAYS
A and B have 225p, whereas A and C only have 165p, so B has 225 - 165 = 60p more than C.
B and C have 240p together, so B has 150p and C has 90p.
