(Write your answer as a reduced fraction in its lowest terms)

  • Question 1

Write the missing number in the calculation below:

 

24.3 -    = 16.8

CORRECT ANSWER
7.5
EDDIE SAYS
Work out 24.3 - 16.8 = 7.5
  • Question 2

Match each calculation to the number that is nearest to the correct answer.

CORRECT ANSWER

Column A

Column B

56 × 4
200
355 + 127
500
620 ÷ 2
300
725 - 148

EDDIE SAYS
56 × 4 = 224 ≅ 200
355 + 127 = 482 ≅ 500
620 ÷ 2 = 310 ≅ 300
725 - 148 = 577 ≅ 600
1200 ÷ 3 = 400
  • Question 3

A bag contains

 

4 red counters

5 yellow counters

6 blue counters.

 

Aisha says "one third of the counters are yellow."

Is Aisha correct?

CORRECT ANSWER
Yes
EDDIE SAYS
There are 4 + 5 + 6 = 15 counters in the bag.
The fraction 5 /15 reduces to 1/3 by dividing the top and the bottom of the fraction by 5.
  • Question 4

Count the number of pentagons in this selection of shapes.

 

 

CORRECT ANSWER

EDDIE SAYS

  • Question 5

Calculate:                      

 

40% of £320

 

   £ 

(Just write the number)

CORRECT ANSWER
128
EDDIE SAYS
10% of 320 is 32
32 × 4 = 128
  • Question 6

The points A and B are shown on the coordinate axes below.

M is the midpoint of the straight line AB.

 

What are the coordinates of M?

 

CORRECT ANSWER
(11, 8)
EDDIE SAYS
There are 10 x-units between A and B, so we must add 5 to the x-coordinate of A, giving us 6 + 5 = 11
There are 12 y-units between A and B, so we must add 6 to the 6-coordinate of A, giving us 2 + 6 = 8
  • Question 7

Write the missing number in the calculation below:

 

243 - (14 - 10) = 

CORRECT ANSWER
239
EDDIE SAYS
14 - 10 = 4
243 - 4 = 239
  • Question 8

Stamps cost 50p each.

How many of these stamps can be bought for £10?

 

CORRECT ANSWER
20
EDDIE SAYS
2 stamps cost £1
So £10 will buy 20 stamps.
  • Question 9

Write the missing number in the calculation below:

 

370 ÷  + 12 = 49

CORRECT ANSWER
10
EDDIE SAYS
49 - 12 = 37
370 ÷ 37 = 10, so 370 ÷ 10 = 37
  • Question 10

The pictogram shows the number of comics and books read, and the number of films watched by four children in a year.

 

How many films did Dan watch?

 

CORRECT ANSWER
25
EDDIE SAYS
Dan watched 5 × 5 = 25 films.
  • Question 11

The pictogram shows the number of comics and books read, and the number of films watched by four children in a year.

 

Who read the same number of books as the number of comics read by Nikita?

 

CORRECT ANSWER
Aisha
EDDIE SAYS
Nikita read 4 × 6 = 24 comics.
Aisha read 6 × 4 = 24 books.
  • Question 12

Choose the number that is closest to 550.

CORRECT ANSWER
605
EDDIE SAYS
605 is 55 away.
494 is 56 away.
650 is 100 away.
490 is 60 away.
55 is 495 away.
  • Question 13

n stands for a whole number.

 

5n + 7 = 52

 

What is the value of n?                              

 

n

CORRECT ANSWER
9
EDDIE SAYS
52 - 7 = 45
45 ÷ 5 = 9
Check by saying 5 × 9 = 45 and 45 + 7 = 52
  • Question 14

Calculate:

 

CORRECT ANSWER
310
EDDIE SAYS
434 ÷ 7 = 62
62 × 5 = 310
  • Question 15

Children £ 3.95

 

 

  £

(Just write the number)

CORRECT ANSWER
52.45
EDDIE SAYS
Work out:
3 × 6.95 = 20.85
8 × 3.95 = 31.60
20.85 + 31.60 = 52.45
  • Question 16

Jack and Jill take a trip to a town 15 km away on their bicycles.

He adds 5½ to it and then divides the result by 2.

His answer is 10.

 

What number did Antonio first think of?

 

CORRECT ANSWER
14.5
EDDIE SAYS
Work backwards, starting with 10 and do the opposite.
10 × 2 = 20
20 - 5.5 = 14.5
  • Question 20

A rectangle is shown below with a line touching one corner.

Calculate the size of angle x.

 

 

(Do not use a protractor or angle measurer)

 

x = °

(Just write the number)

CORRECT ANSWER
55
EDDIE SAYS
Angles on a straight line add to 180°
x = 180 - 35 - 90 = 55
  • Question 21

Here are five calculations.

Select the calculations whose answers are less than 340.

CORRECT ANSWER
3.35 × 100
¼ of 1200
11 × 30
EDDIE SAYS
3.35 × 100 = 335 < 340
842 ÷ 2 = 421 > 340
¼ of 1200 = 1200 ÷ 4 = 300 < 340
124 + 134 + 82 = 340 which is not < 340
11 × 30 = 330 < 340
  • Question 22

Look at this thermometer.

Select the temperature which is 20 degrees higher than that shown?

 

CORRECT ANSWER
12 °C
EDDIE SAYS
Each small division is worth 2 °C, so the temperature shown is -8 °C.
-8 + 20 = 12
  • Question 23

A shaded shape is shown on a 1 cm square grid.

Calculate the area of the shaded shape.

 

 

 

 cm2
