Sample questions

Here are some sample questions similar in nature to what you will have to solve tomorrow on the test.


Order of operations:
Remember that you can use your calculator for this part of the test.

1. (8+4) x 4 - (70 ÷ 7) =

2. (40 + 2) ÷ (12- 5) x 32 =

3. 6 x (3 x 2 ) + 14 – 40 =

4. 7 x 5 – ( 14 – 3) =

5. 6 x 4 ÷ 8 + 60 ÷ 10 =

Word questons, get the exact answer

6. You are off to the mall to buy some clothes. You buy a shirt costing $12.95, some lunch at $4.65, a backpack costing $42.99 and a pack of gum for 89 cents. How much money have you spent in total?

7. You are painting the walls in your bedroom. Two of the walls are 2.5m long, while two of the walls are 4.3m long. All of the walls are 2.3m tall. If you know that the area of a wall is length x height, what is the total area in m that you are going to paint?

Word questions, estimate the answer only.(remember think happy numbers!)

8. You are throwing a surprise birthday party for your best friend. You've invited 20 people and plan for everyone to show. Now you are going to buy 8 bags of chips at $2.09, a package of party hats for $3.96 and a new dance CD to listen to for $12.49. How much money do you need to bring with you remembering that if you don't bring enough money you can't buy everything.

You will find the solutions to these blog questions below.

As well if you want some more practice on order of operations, try questions 9 to 22 on page 99 of your textbook.

Cheers my grade 7's
