A car’s petrol tank is threequarters full.
The motorist topped up the tank by adding 12 litres.
How many litres does the tank hold when full?
CorrectIncorrectHint
 The fuel tank is ¾ full. The motorist has to add fuel to the remaining ¼ of a tank.
 The motorist adds 12 litres of fuel to fill the remaining ¼ of a tank.
 Therefore if 12 litres is a quarter of the tank, then how much is four quarters?

Question 5 of 10

A wheat silo receives grain at a rate of 15 tonnes per minute.
How long will it take the silo to receive 120 tonnes of grain?

 Fifteen tonnes per minute is the rate.
 To find the number of minutes, it takes to receive 120 tonnes we divide 120 by 15.

Question 6 of 10
6. Question
Category: NumberSkill (Level 3): Applies multiple operations to solve problems in a familiar context.
A shopping centre car park has 900car parking bays divided into three sections.
Section 1 has 480 bays, and section 2 has half as much as Section 1.
The remaining bays are in section 3.
How many bays are there in Section 3?

Question 8 of 10
8. Question
Category: MeasurementSkill (Level 2): Comparing fractions, percentages and decimals to solve a problem in a familiar context.
The proportion of sheep manure found in four different brands of fertiliser is shown below.
Brand A – 0.35
Brand B – 2/5
Brand C – 25%
Brand D – 3/10
Complete the following sentence by correctly inserting A, B, C or D in the relevant space.

The most sheep manure is found in Brand , and the least amount is found in Brand .
CorrectIncorrectHint
 It is best to convert all values to a percentage so a comparison can be made.
 0.35 can be converted to a percentage by removing the decimal point and adding the % symbol.
 2/5 can be converted to a percentage by multiplying top and bottom number by 20.
 25% is already in a percentage format
 3/10 can be converted to a percentage by multiplying top and bottom number by 10.


Question 9 of 10
9. Question
Category: Ratio & RatesSkill (Level 2): Applying knowledge of division and interpreting the remainder in an unfamiliar context.
The local swimming club consisting of 42 swimmers and five coaches,
are booked into a mountain resort for a period of bonding.
How many of the above cabins do they need to book to accommodate every person?
CorrectIncorrectHint
 The total number of beds needed is 47 (42 for the students + 5 for the coaches).
 Divide the answer in step 1 by the number of beds available in a cabin.
 It may be necessary to round up to the nearest cabin as it is not possible to rent part of a cabin.

Question 10 of 10
10. Question
Category: NumberSkill (Level 3): Comparing and ordering percentages and fractions in a measurement context.
Michael’s results of his last four science tests are listed below:
13/20 14/25 73% 34/50
Drag and drop Michael’s lowest and highest percentage scores to their correct positions.
Sort elements
 14/25
 73%
 13/20
 34/50

lowest % score is

highest % score is
CorrectIncorrectHint
 To compare the four scores we need to change all scores to a mark out of 100.
 13/20 (multiply top and bottom by 5).
 14/25 (multiply top and bottom by 4).
 73% = 73/100 (73/100 is the same as 73%).
 34/50 = (multiply top and bottom by 2).
