### Example Question #124 : Isee Lower Level (Grades 5 6) Mathematics Achievement

A total of students were asked which one of three sports-- basketball, volleyball, or tennis-- they preferred. If students said basketball and said volleyball, how many students said they prefer tennis?

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

To find out how many students prefer tennis, one should add the number of the students who prefer basketball to the number of students who prefer volleyball.

The students who are not included among these are the ones who prefer tennis. To find this number one should subtract from the original group of students.

Therefore, students prefer tennis.

### Example Question #126 : Isee Lower Level (Grades 5 6) Mathematics Achievement

Which of the following is **not** a multiple of 8?

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

A multiple is a number that can be divided by another number (in this case 8) without a remainder. All of the answer choices can be divided by 8 without a remainder exept for the number 20 (which leaves a remainder of 4); therefore, 20 is **not **a multiple of 8.

### Example Question #127 : Isee Lower Level (Grades 5 6) Mathematics Achievement

Which of the following is **not **a factor of 24?

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

Factors are numbers that can be multiplied together to create another number. 3, 4, 8, and 12 are all factors of 24.

There is no number that multiply by 7 to result in 24; therefore, 7 is not a factor of 24.

### Example Question #128 : Isee Lower Level (Grades 5 6) Mathematics Achievement

Brett and Bob love to ski. They planned on a 5 day ski trip together, but Brett decided to stay 40% longer than they had originally planned. How many extra days did Brett stay?

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

If Bob and Brett planned a 5 day ski trip, then 2 days would make the trip 40 percent longer.

This is because 2 extra days out of 5 is equal to . The percent equivalent of .4 is 40 percent. Therefore, 2 is the correct answer.

### Example Question #129 : Isee Lower Level (Grades 5 6) Mathematics Achievement

If there are 15 cookies in a tin, and Rebecca gives 5 of the cookies to her mother and one fifth of the remaining cookies to her father, how many cookies remain?

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

If there are 15 cookies in a tin, and Rebecca gives 5 of the cookies to her mother, then 10 cookies remain. She gives one fifth of them, or 2 cookies, to her father.

Therefore, 8 cookies remain.

### Example Question #130 : Isee Lower Level (Grades 5 6) Mathematics Achievement

If Rebecca has watched 6 and a half minutes of a video that is one hour and five minutes long, what percentage of the video has she watched?

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

Rebecca has watched 6 and a half minutes of a video that is one hour and five minutes long, which can also be written as 6.5 minutes of a video that is 65 minutes long.

Given that , Rebecca has watched 10% of the video.

### Example Question #11 : How To Find The Part From The Whole

In a barrel there are apples. If there are red apples for every green apples, how many of the apples in the barrel are green?

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

If there is a group of green apples for every group of red apples, then in every group of apples there will be green ones and red ones. (). How many groups of apples are there in a barrel containing apples? divided by is , so there are groups of apples. In each group of apples, there is a smaller group of green apples, so there are groups of green apples each. , so there are green apples in a barrel of apples.

Alternatively, one could say that since there are green apples in every group of apples, the fraction of green apples in the barrel is . To find of , multiply and together. is , so there are green apples in the barrel.

### Example Question #12 : How To Find The Part From The Whole

Each of the points on the line above is the same distance from the next. If the distance between point A and point F is inches, what is the distance between point A and point C?

**Possible Answers:**

inches

inches

inches

inches

inches

**Correct answer:**

inches

There are five segments of line between points A and F. divided by is , so each line segment is inches long. There are line segments between points A and C. line segments inches each inches, so inches is the correct answer.

Alternatively, since there are line segments between points A and F and line segments between points A and C, line AC is of the total line AF. To find of , multiply and . , so the correct answer is inches.

### Example Question #13 : How To Find The Part From The Whole

There is a shipment of computer screens arriving today. If there are 1,400 screens, and 35% of them are 23 inches wide, what is the number of 23 inch-wide screens?

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

There is a shipment of computer screens arriving today. If there are 1,400 screens, and 35% of them are 23 inches wide, what is the number of 23 inch-wide screens?

We need to find the portion of screens from the whole.

First, we need to convert our percent to a decimal:

Next, multiply the total number by our new-found decimal

So our answer is 490
