Check your figures – Choice D, 1.2 is correct. You are missing a decimal point. .84 ÷ .7 = 1.2

Sorry. Got it.

Hi, your site is great. I’ve liked you on facebook. How can I please get the other questions?

what a fantastic site

Ok 4) is not c. Its d

Yes – #4 is C 4.7 + .9 + .01 = 5.61

3 calculators and the internet claim you are incorrect

5.7 being the correct answer to Question#4

please explain how exactly is it you get 5.61

lets see – the question is – notice that .9 equals 0.9 and .01 equals 0.01 – that makes it easier to keep straight

Questions is – 4.7 + .9 + .01

Take the first part – 4.7 + 0.9 = 5.6

5.6 + 0.01 = 5.61 Choice C is correct

Watch your decimals!

how?explain

good practice thanks!

Why for number 6 the decimal is moved only once and for number 5 the decimal is all the way in the front?

One is multiplication and one is division

For #5, count the digits behind the decimal place in the question, this will tell you where to place the decimal place in the answer. For #6, you only need to move the decimal one place over for the the denominator to be devisable by the numerator (7 goes into 8)

good explanation is needed” because ” other people don’t understand it

Great practice questions and i really enjoyed the practice on this site. I have a upcoming basic math test to take this weekend for a better job career and i needed a little practice. Thanks…

Number 2 is wrong 703 ÷ 6 is 117

703 / 6 = 117.1667 or 117 R1

Hi Brian, I’m in Fort St. John, BC

I’d like to study for and take this test as soon as possible ….

How do I get started?

how to compute number 10

Which is the equivalent decimal number for forty nine thousandths? A number in the thousanths place means 3 places of decimal so choice C – 0.049 is correct

thanks

No it is C because you have to add 4.7 and 0.9 and than you get 5.6 and than add 0.01 and that is 5.61. So the answer to 4 is C, and i am only 13 and know that?????
