That's a Fail
Unfortunately, you got 1/5 or less of the answers right. That means you still have a lot of practice to do if you want to regain your old math skills. It seems that you've already lost some of them and that's a shame. Why not take a gander at the answers below and take more of our math quizzes to learn and practice your math some more?
Below Average
Unfortunately, while not the lowest grade, you did not manage to answer at least half of the questions correctly. While you may have some basic math in place, there is still much to be done for your "mathematical thinking". The best thing for that? Practice, practice, practice! Have a look below at your answers and the correct ones, then try some of our other math quizzes to practice some more.
Above Average
Good work! You definitely have your mathematical bases covered, and that is rare for most adults these days that have at least a few decades between them and school. You have a good head for mathematical thinking and so you easily recalled a lot of the methods needed to solve these questions. Nicely done!
You ACED IT!
Your mathematical prowess is without fault. You have an uncanny memory for the math skills you learned at school. The more years that have passed between you and high school, the more impressed we are! You obviously have a brain that is good at processing and remembering mathematical information. It's a rare skill and one you should cherish and continue to develop. Practice some more with out other math quizzes. If you've had any mistakes, have a look below to see them corrected.
