Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. You love music and own an acoustic guitar, a bass guitar, a ukulele, and a violin. How many strings do you have altogether? (use the most common variants of the instruments)

The bass guitars, ukulele and violin each have four strings, but the acoustic guitar has six.

4 + 4 + 4 + 6 = 18
2. You open a carton of one dozen eggs, then make two omelettes using two eggs each. How many eggs are left in the carton?

A dozen is equal to 12.

Two omelettes made with two eggs each is 2 + 2 = 4.

12 - 4 = 8 eggs left.
3. Your three friends join you for pizza. The pizza is cut to make twelve slices and everybody eats two slices each. How many slices are left?

Don't forget to add yourself to the equation!

Three friends plus you make four altogether.

Twelve pieces of pizza. Four friends. Two pieces each.

That could be 12 - 2 - 2 - 2 - 2 = 4.

Or you could say:

12 - (4 x 2) = 4
4. Playing marbles with your friend, you each begin with 20 marbles. Your friend captures half of yours, then you win four back. How many do you have now?

Half of twenty (20) is ten (10). Or you could say 20 ÷ 2 = 10. Or 20 - 10 = 10.

And after losing ten marbles, you win back four.

10 + 4 = 14.
5. On Saturday you slept in until 10 a.m., then you fell asleep again at 8 p.m., meaning you were awake for how many hours?

With clocks you have to remember that there are 24 hours in a day, usually divided into two sets of 12 hours (a.m. and p.m.).

Starting at 10 a.m., you have to add two hours to get to 12 p.m. (noon), then add another eight hours to get to 8 p.m.

2 + 8 = 10
6. You're growing quickly, and right now you are four and a half feet tall. How many more inches to reach five feet?

There are twelve inches in a foot, so that means that four and a half feet could be written as four feet and six inches (4'6"). You need to add another half of a foot (6") to reach five feet in total.
7. Your younger sister is about to have a birthday. Right now you are four times her age, but tomorrow you will be three times her age once she has had her birthday. How old are you?

You have to think carefully about this one, or maybe try out some different numbers to see if it works.

Your sister is three right now. If you are 12, you are four times her age. 4 x 3 = 12

Tomorrow your sister will be four, and you will be three times her age. 3 x 4 = 12.

The equation to make it work is a little tricky, because you have to remember that *YOUR* age isn't changing.

So... if your sister's age is 'x', then here is the equation:

4x = 3(x + 1)
4x = 3x + 3
x = 3

And the proof:

4(3) = 12
3(3 + 1) = 9 + 3 = 12
8. You have a \$5 bill and you buy three chocolate bars for \$1 each. How many dollars do you have left over?

To figure this out, you need to add your three chocolate bars together. Leaving out the dollar signs you have:

1 + 1 + 1 = 3 (or 3 x 1 = 3)

Then, subtract the \$3 from the \$5. Ignoring the dollar sign, the basic math leaves you with:

5 - 3 = 2

12 x 2 = 24 (or 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 = 24)

4 x 2 = 8 (or 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 = 8)

Then you have to subtract.

24 - 8 = 16

Or if it's easier to do it in steps, 24 - 4 = 20 (leaving 4 of 8 points not used), then 20 - 4 = 16.
10. Your cousin is ten years old and has twin brothers half his age. What number do you get when you add all of their ages together?

Your cousin is ten years old and twins half his age would be five years old.

So that means you have to add up 10 + 5 + 5, which equals 20.
