WORKING WITH NUMBERS

Here is some basic information about the actual Working With Numbers Assessment:

• This is a timed assessment. You will have 3 minutes to complete the 24 questions in this assessment.
• Don't be concerned about completing all the questions. You are not expected to be able to answer all the questions within the allotted time, so just do as many as you can.

And finally, a couple of MUST OBSERVE instructions to avoid having your assessment terminated.

• You must use your mouse to answer the questions in this assessment.
• Do not use your keyboard.
• Do not use the ‘back’ or ‘refresh’ features of your browser.

There are 24 questions in this assessment; these are divided into three types:

• A. CALCULATIONS
• B. NUMBER SEQUENCES
• C. NUMERICAL ANALOGIES

You must use your mouse to answer the questions in this assessment. Do not use your keyboard.

A. CALCULATIONS
Example 1
Subtract the middle figure from the last
2,7,11,15,19

.
Solution: The middle figure is 11. The last figure is 19. Therefore, the answer is 8.
Now do the following samples. Remember to use your mouse to select the numbers for your answers.
Sample 1
Add the second figure to the third figure
1, 17, 2, 5, 11

Solution: The second figure is 17. The third figure is 2. Therefore the answer is 19.
Sample 2
Multiply the last figure by 3

Solution: The last figure is 4. Therefore the answer is 12.
B. NUMBER SEQUENCES
Example 1
Write the number which comes next
1.1, 1.3, 1.5, 1.7
ERASE
SOLVE
1

.
Solution: The answer is 1.9 because 0.2 has been added to each of the previous numbers.
Now do the following samples. Remember to use your mouse to select the numbers for your answers.
Sample 1
What number comes next?
70 50 35 25
ERASE
SOLVE
1

8
9
0
.
Solution: The difference between 70 and 50 is 20. The difference between 50 and 35 is 15. The difference between 35 and 25 is 10. As the sequence difference is 20, 15, 10 the next difference should be 5. Therefore, the number in the sequence is 20 (25 - 5 = 20).
Sample 2
Write the number which comes next:
2, 5, 8, 11, 14
ERASE
SOLVE
1

.
Solution: The difference between 2 and 5 is 3. The difference between 5 and 8 is 3. The difference between 8 and 11 is 3. The difference between 11 and 14 is 3. Therefore the answer is 17 (14 + 3 = 17).
C. NUMERICAL ANALOGIES
Example 1
12 is to 24 as
5 is to ___
ERASE
SOLVE
1

0
.
Solution: As 24 is 2 times larger than 12, then the number which is 2 times larger than 5 is 10.
Now do the following samples. Remember to use your mouse to select the numbers for your answers.
Sample 1
36 is to 12 as
21 is to ___
ERASE
SOLVE
1

.
Solution: When 36 is divided by 12 the result is 3. Therefore 21 divided by 3 is 7.
Sample 2
14 is to 10 as
20 is to ___
ERASE
SOLVE

.
Solution: When 10 is subtracted from 14 the result is 4. Therefore is 4 subtracted from 20 result is 16.
Note: When you start your Working With Numbers Assessment these instructions are repeated. You will also have an opportunity to review further example and sample questions.
