That's a Fail, We're Afraid
Maybe you like to take your time a bit more and you didn't have enough time to solve these problems, or perhaps you need a refresher course in algebra. There are many online courses to re-learn these math operations once again.
You Did Pretty Well
Not bad, not bad. You solved a good amount of math problems within the time limit. You still had quite a few mistakes, so we'd recommend looking below to see where you went wrong OR trying the quiz again. In any case, you showed you have a good understanding of Algebra even under a time pressure.
You Aced This Test!
Wow, not only are you really good at math and Algebra, but you did it all under a time constraint, which shows you can keep a cool head and focus even when time is running out. That's really impressive focus and mental abilities - so consider us impressed!
