280 Solve the simultaneous equations: 2X + Y = 18X - Y = 6
X = 4 and Y = 1
X = 0.6 Y= 4.8
X = 16 and Y = 4
X = 18 and Y = 2 If the time is 10 and 15 minutes, how many degrees would there be between the hour and minute hands?
105 degrees
90 degrees
65 degrees
45 degrees In a particular game, there can be eight players at one time on the pitch and they last for seventy minutes. In the total duration, six players substitute with each player. All the players are then for the same time on the pitch including the substitutes. Can you calculate the time each player was on the pitch?
The total number of players = 8 + 6 = 14 According to the question, only eight players can be present on the field. Thus calculating the total time: 70 * 8 = 560. Since we know there are 14 players we divide by 14 to get 40.

45 minutes Brian and Sam decided to play badminton against each other. They won't stop unless one of them won \$50. For every game, they bet \$10. If Brian won exactly 3 games, How many games did they play in total?
Brian won 3 games, so Sam had to win 3 (to balance 3 games he lost) + 5 games (required for min \$50) = 8 games Total Games = 3 + 8 = 11 games.

9 To find the question mark number, you may need to think creatively... (there are two correct answers)
Solution A : Add the number of the last line to the current line 1 + 4 = 5 5 + 2 + 5 = 12 12 + 3 + 6 = 21 21 + 8 + 11 = 40 Solution B: 1 + (1 x 4) = 5 2 + (2 x 5) = 12 3 + (3 x 6) = 21 8 + (8 x 11) = 96

This Test Proved a Bit Hard For You Maybe this was a bit too hard for you, but as we meant for this to be challenging, there's no shame in that! Have a look at what you got wrong, and take some of our other math quizzes (we have a lot!) for some fun practice!
You Did Quite Well, But Didn't Beat the Test That wasn't bad at all and in fact you got half or more of the questions right. That's no easy feat, but you're still some ways away from being our math winner in this quiz. Look at your mistakes and try to figure out what kept you from beating this math quiz.
You Crazy Son of a Gun, You Did It! We're floored! You must have an excellent relationship with math or you're some kind of ex math teacher. We're on to you! But seriously, we're so proud we could burst! Keep up the smarts!
