Mr. Brown is putting a fence around his yard so his dog cannot get out. Of the following measurements, this is a possible amount of fencing that he would buy: A.140 centimeters B.140 yards C.140 square yards D.140 cubic yards
What is B. 140 yards? Explanation: Mr. Brown needs to know the length of the fence he needs, so his answer can’t be square yards (which is an answer for area) or cubic yards (which is an answer for volume). The only possible answers are 140 centimeters or 140 yards. 140 centimeters is much too short, so 140 yards has to be the answer.
A fifth grade student at Leighton made the greatest Mother’s Day present possible.

This is the ordered pair where the blue dot is located on the coordinate grid to the left.
What is (2, 5)?
Jill was drawing a rectangle on a coordinate grid. She put three of the points in the locations shown. This the coordinate where the fourth point needs to be.
What is (5, 3)?
Joe wanted to draw a parallelogram on the grid. She put in the first three points. This is the coordinate where she should put in the fourth point.
What is (-4, 3)?
An ant needed to travel from one blue dot to the other blue dot in the grid that is shown. The ant could only travel on grid lines. If the distance between each grid line on the grid is 1 cm., this is the shortest distance the ant could travel.
What is 10 centimeters?
Sam drew the triangle in blue on the grid to the left. If each square on the grid is 1 square centimeter, this is the area of the blue triangle.
What is 6 square centimeters? Explanation: The base of the triangle is 3 centimeters and the height of the triangle is 4 centimeters. To find the area of a triangle, you need to multiply the base and the height, and then divide by 2.
Look at the following groups of numbers. This is the group that has the numbers in order from least to greatest. A.43%, ½, 0.52, ¼, 87% B.¼, 0.52, ½, 87%, 43% C.87%, 0.52, ½, 43%, ¼ D.¼, 43%, ½, 0.52, 87%
What is D. ¼, 43%, ½, 0.52, 87%?

What is 62.5%?
A B C D The figure to the left is a square. Julie put her finger on Point A. She moved her finger from Point A to Point B to Point C to Point D. This is the percentage of the way she went around the figure.
What is 75% of the way around the figure?
Look at the drawing above. This is the percentage of boxes that have a shape in them.
What is 33 1/3 %?
Tony made a plate of cookies. One fourth of the cookies were chocolate chip, 0.6 of the cookies were peanut butter, and the rest of the cookies were oatmeal. This is the percent of the cookies that were oatmeal.
What is 15%?
Alex has a spinner divided into 8 equal parts with the numbers 1 – 8 on each part. He spins the spinner one time. This is the probability, expressed as a percent, that he will spin a number that is a factor of 8.
What is 50%? Explanation: The numbers 1, 2, 4, and 8 are all factors of the number 8, so 4 of the 8 numbers are factors of 8 and 4 are not. So, Alex has a 50% chance of spinning a factor of 8.
The spinner to the left is divided into 5 equal parts. The spinner is spun 1000 times. According to theoretical probability, this is the number of times it should land on the letter A.
What is 200 times? Explanation: According to theoretical probability, the spinner should land on each section the same number of times. So, if should land on each number 200 times since 200 x 5 = 1000.
Mr. Linden wrote all the letters in his last name on 6 different pieces of paper. He then put the 6 pieces of paper in a paper bag and took 1 piece out at random. This is the probability, expressed as a lowest term fraction, that the letter he took out was the letter ‘n’.
What is 1/3? Explanation: The word LINDEN has six letters, but two of them are the letter N. 2/6 in lowest terms is 1/3.
Of the following choices, this is the number of possible outcomes in the above situation. A. 2 B. 6 C. 8 D. 12
What is D. 12? Explanation: To find the number of possible combinations, you need to multiply the number of choices for each. The coin can land on heads or tails, so that is two choices. The cube has six different possible choices. 6 x 2 = 12.
Andy has 20 marbles in a bag. 10 of them are red, eight are black, and the rest are blue. Andy plans to take out a marble out of the bag, record its color, and then return the marble to the bag. He plans on doing this 10 times. According to theoretical probability, this is the number of times he should pull out a blue marble out of the 10 times.
What is 1 blue marble? Explanation: According to the information given, 2 out of the 20 marbles are blue, which is 10% of the marbles. If he is going to pull out 10 different marbles, that means that 10% of them should be blue, which is one marble.
