Can You Pass This Fourth Grade Math Test?

How well do you remember your fourth grade math class?

Introduction

What do you think of when you hear "school"? Seeing your friends every day, discovering new fields of knowledge, or the feeling of dread when you realized you forgot about studying for that day's quiz? Some might remember math class. In fourth grade, teachers introduced us to more complicated concepts, such as multi-digit multiplication and division. That eternal question, "Am I ever going to use this in real life?", was certainly on many minds when preparing for an upcoming test on fraction equivalence. Little did we know there would be a time when all of this knowledge would come in handy!

Without this knowledge base, we wouldn't know how much that cute $19.99 shirt will cost us after adding that amazing 70% discount, or how much to tip on our restaurant bills when we eat out. The concepts we learned in fourth grade certainly come in handy, whether or not we had fun learning them at the time.

U.S. Common Core now dictates that teachers should focus on the following criteria: multi-digit multiplications and divisions involving multi-digit dividends; understanding fraction equivalence, adding and subtracting like-denominator fractions, and multiplying fractions by whole numbers; and understanding some basic concepts regarding geometric figures (like symmetry). Common Core also encourages knowing basic measurements and their relative sizes within a system, even suggesting some knowledge of not just Imperial units (e.g., inches or feet), but also some basic metric units (e.g., cm or m) as well.

How much do you remember from fourth grade? Can you tell apart an isosceles from a scalene triangle? Do you know whether 4/8 is bigger than 2/4, or if they're equal to each other? If these questions rang a bell, take our quiz to see if you could pass a fourth grade U.S. math test! Click "Let's Play!" to begin!

1. 7

2. 8

3. 6

4. 5

The correct answer is 7. First, take 12 from 89 to get 77 candy bars available to share. Then divide the number of bars left (77) by the number of friends (11); this gives you 7.



19. A rectangle is 9 inches in length and 6 inches in width. How much is its area?


19. A rectangle is 9 inches in length and 6 inches in width. How much is its area?

1. 15 inches

2. 3 inches

3. 48 inches

4. 54 inches

The correct answer is 54 inches. To find the area of a rectangle, you have to multiply its length times its width. So, 9 in x 6 in = 54 in.

22. How many meters are there in 345 kilometers?

1. 3450 meters

2. 0.345 meters

3. 345,000 meters

4. 34,500 meters

The correct answer is 345,000 meters. One kilometer is equal to 1000 meters, so 345 m x 1000 = 345,000 km.



23. Lina has made 3 kg of strawberry jam and she wants to put it in jars that can hold 200 g of jam each. How many jars does she need?


23. Lina has made 3 kg of strawberry jam and she wants to put it in jars that can hold 200 g of jam each. How many jars does she need?

1. 15

2. 150

3. 1500

4. 1.5

The correct answer is 15. One kilogram equals 1000 grams, so 3 x 1000 gives you 3000 g of jam total. Divide this by how much each jar can hold (200 g) to get the correct number of jars (15).



24. If the radius of a circle is 4, how much is its diameter?


24. If the radius of a circle is 4, how much is its diameter?

1. 2

2. 4.5

3. 8

4. 3.14

The correct answer is 8. The radius is the distance between the center and the edge of a circle. The diameter goes through the center of the circle, making the diameter worth two radii. So, 4 x 2 = 8.



25. What is the name of the shape shown here?


25. What is the name of the shape shown here?

1. Pentagon

2. Hexagon

3. Triangle

26. If now it

1. 5:10 AM

2. 6:05 AM

3. 6:15 AM

4. 5:55 AM

The correct answer is 6:05 AM. Hours are measured in 60 minutes. So 20 minutes past 3:45 AM gives us 4:05 AM. Two hours past this is 6:05 AM.



27. Paul can type 2345 words per hour. How many words can he type in 6 hours?


27. Paul can type 2345 words per hour. How many words can he type in 6 hours?

1. 15,010

2. 14,185

3. 15,060

The correct answer is 14,070. 2345 (words) x 6 (hours) = 14,070 (words total).



28. Sam works Monday to Friday from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM. Monday to Thursday he earns $5 per hour, but Friday he earns $6 per hour. How much does he earn in a week?


28. Sam works Monday to Friday from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM. Monday to Thursday he earns $5 per hour, but Friday he earns $6 per hour. How much does he earn in a week?

1. 318

2. 256

3. 208

4. 119

The correct answer is 208. Monday to Thursday he earns $40/day ($5 x 8 hr = $40/day). This happens for 4 days, so he has $160 ($40/day x 4 days = $160). On Friday, he makes $48 ($6 x 8 hr = $48/day). $160 + $48 = $208.



29. 3 kilograms of apples cost $9 and 5 kilograms cost $15. How much is a kilogram of apples worth?


29. 3 kilograms of apples cost $9 and 5 kilograms cost $15. How much is a kilogram of apples worth?

1. $2

2. $5

3. $4

4. $3

The correct answer is $3. It doesn't matter if you buy 3 kg or 5 kg, the price is the same: 9 / 3 = 3 and 15 / 5 = 3.



30. 1, 4, 2, 8, 3, 12: What are the next two numbers in this series?


30. 1, 4, 2, 8, 3, 12: What are the next two numbers in this series?

1. 4, 15

2. 5, 20

3. 4, 16

4. 5, 15

The correct answer is 4, 16. The odd numbers progress in a +1 chronological order, so logically the seventh number in the series should be 4, since the fifth number was 3 (3 + 1 = 4). The even numbers in this series are the preceding number multiplied by 4. So the eighth number in the series should be 16, since the preceding number is 4 (4 x 4 = 16).



31. The farmers harvested 25 kg of peaches, 15 kg of plums, 24 kg of potatoes, and 30 kg of cherries. How many kilograms of fruit do they have in total?


31. The farmers harvested 25 kg of peaches, 15 kg of plums, 24 kg of potatoes, and 30 kg  of cherries. How many kilograms of fruit do they have in total?

1. 94

2. 70

3. 84

4. 40

The correct answer is 70 kg total, solved by the equation 25 kg (peaches) + 15 kg (plums) + 30 kg (cherries) = 70 kg of fruit. Potatoes are not fruits!



32. A textile factory uses 5 yards of fabric to make a dress. How many dresses can be made with 255 yards of fabric?


32. A textile factory uses 5 yards of fabric to make a dress. How many dresses can be made with 255 yards of fabric?

1. 65

2. 255

3. 51

4. 55

The correct answer is 51. 255 (total yards) divided by 5 (yards needed to make 1 dress) is 51 (dresses possible).



33. How many ounces (oz) are there in 25 pounds (lb)?


33. How many ounces (oz) are there in 25 pounds (lb)?

1. 400

2. 100

3. 350

4. 275

The correct answer is 400. 1 lb equals 16 oz, so 25 x 16 = 400.



34. John and Diane own a field. John owns 12/16 of the field, whereas Diane owns 2/8. Who owns 75% of the field?


34. John and Diane own a field. John owns 12/16 of the field, whereas Diane owns 2/8. Who owns 75% of the field?

1. Diane

2. John

3. Neither

4. Both

The correct answer is John. 12/16 equals 0.75 or 75%.



35. Alex's house is 270 miles away from London while Paula's is 270 kilometers away. Which house is closest to London?


35. Alex

1. Alex's house

2. Paula's house

3. Equal distance

4. Cannot tell with the provided information

The correct answer is Paula's house. One mile roughly equals 1.6 kilometers. So, divide 270 mi by 1.6 to get roughly 168 mi as the distance for Paula's house, which is closer to London.



36. Four friends go to dinner and decide to split the bill evenly. The total is $48.88. How much will each of them pay?


36. Four friends go to dinner and decide to split the bill evenly. The total is $48.88. How much will each of them pay?

1. $13.22

2. $12.22

3. $14.22

4. $15.22

The correct answer is $12.22. 48.88 divided by 4 is 12.22.



37. Kabir had 155 kg of fruit when he opened his shop in the morning. He sold 10 kg of apples, 15 kg of pears, and 50 kg of oranges. How many kilograms of fruit does he have left?


37. Kabir had 155 kg of fruit when he opened his shop in the morning. He sold 10 kg of apples, 15 kg of pears, and 50 kg of oranges. How many kilograms of fruit does he have left?

1. 80

2. 100

3. 95

4. 85

The correct answer is 80. There are two ways of putting it: 155 - 10 - 15 - 50 = 80 or 155 - (10 + 15 + 50) = 80. Essentially, take the beginning amount of fruit and subtract the amount sold to get what is left.
