Mathematical Knowledge Test

What is a Mathematical Knowledge Test?

In the Mathematical Knowledge test, your understanding of high school-level mathematics will be assessed. Calculators are typically allowed during these tests, and the use of pen and paper is highly recommended.

What questions can I expect?

In a Math Knowledge test, you are required to solve mathematical problems and answer questions related to mathematical theory. When preparing for a Mathematical Knowledge test, we suggest that you brush up on the following topics:

  • Order of Operations
  • Types of Numbers
  • Decimals
  • Percentages
  • Interest
  • Factorials
  • Exponents
  • Pythagorean Theorem
  • 2D and 3D Geometric Figures
  • Names of Common Figures
  • Volume and Area
  • Circumference
  • Linear Equations
  • Quadratic Equations

Mechanical knowledge example question:

A rectangle has a length that is 4 times its width. If the perimeter of the rectangle is 100 cm, what is the area of the rectangle?

Explanation: Select your answer to display explanation.

First, let’s denote the width of the rectangle as w and the length as 4w since the length is 4 times the width. The perimeter of a rectangle is given by the formula 2(length + width).

So, we have:
2(4w + w) = 100
2(5w) = 100
5w = 50
w = 10 cm

Now that we know the width is 10 cm, the length is 4 × 10 = 40 cm. The area of a rectangle is calculated by length × width, so:
Area = 40 cm × 10 cm = 400 cm²

Therefore, the correct answer is A) 400 cm².
