Introduction: "Five questions with numbers for answers."  Question 1: What's the next number for this series: 2,3,10,15,26? Answer: …………….. ((Number))  Question 2: If the distance between two Stars in the Universe is 4.2 lightyears; what is the distance expressed in miles? 18,493 trillion miles 25,998 trillion miles 24,696 trillion miles 21,568 trillion miles  Question 3: What's the next number for this series: 6, 12, 20, 30, 42? Answer: …………… ((Number))  Question 4: How many zeros follow a 1 in a googol? Answer:………… ((one word or number))  Question 5: How many zeros follow the number 1 in a vigintillion written in Germany? 120 93 126 63 Could you qualify for the AIME? Introduction: "This is a quiz similar to the American Invitational Math Exam (AIME), a difficult test given to qualified HS students every March. Every answer is an integer from 0 to 999 inclusive. A score of 3 out of 5 would be great."  Question 1: Consider the set of numbers S = 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10. You take every distinct twoelement subset of S and write down the number that is larger. For example, if you take the subset 4, 6, you would write down the number 6 because it is larger than 4. What is the sum of all of the numbers that you write down? Answer: ……(A number)  Question 2: What is the sum of all integers, n, 1 < n < 100, that satisfy the condition that 13 is a factor of (n^2 + 27n + 7)? Answer:……….. (A number)  Question 3: An ellipse on the xyplane has foci at (41, 23) and (115, 42). The ellipse is tangent to the xaxis. What is the length of the major axis of the ellipse? Answer :………. (A number)  Question 4: Suppose we are playing a board game with the following rules: 1. The board has 5 spaces on it. 2. Your playing piece starts out on space number 1. 3. Each move consists of moving the piece to a randomly chosen space other than the one which you currently occupy (for example, if you are on space number 2, you randomly move to either space 1, 3, 4, or 5, with each space having equal chance of being selected, but you cannot stay on space number 2). 4. You win if, after seven moves, you are back on space 1. The probability of winning this game is p. Find 4096p. Answer: ……….. (A number)  Question 5: Suppose log.4a (40*sqrt(3)) = log.3a (45) (Log.m (n) denotes log base m of n. sqrt(x) denotes the square root of x.) Find a^3 (a^3 denotes "a cubed.") Answer: ………… (A number) Special Numbers Introduction: "This quiz is all about weird or special numbers or groups of numbers. Lots of interesting facts in this one  ENJOY!"  Question 1: This kind of number is divisible by only one and itself. The first few examples are 2, 3, 5, 7, and 11. Rational Deficient Mersenne Prime  Question 2: What is the set of positive numbers that results in whole numbers when raised to the power of one half? Square Cubic Triangular Pentagonal  Question 3: What is the name for the type of number that cannot be written as a ratio of two integers? Abundant Prime Deficient Irrational  Question 4: This kind of number is equal to the sum of its positive factors, excluding itself. The first 3 examples are 6, 28, and 496. Answer:…….. (One Word)  Question 5: Real numbers are rational, irrational, whole, and imaginary. True False  Question 6: The numbers 3, 7, 31, and 127 are what? Fermat Primes Mersenne Primes Leibniz Primes Newton Primes  Question 7: What group of numbers does the letter "i" represent? Irrational Numbers Indefinite Numbers Imaginary Numbers Infinite Numbers  Question 8: Since every even number is divisible by 2, there are no even prime numbers. True False  Question 9: The number 12 has 6 factors: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, and 12. If you add up those factors you will get 28. Because of this fact, and the special properties of 6 and 28, the number 12 is called a _______ number. Answer: ……. (One Word)  Question 10: What is extremely special about these two numbers: 220 and 284? They are ______ pairs. Answer: …….. (One word) A Tricky 'n' Easy Maths Quiz! (4) Introduction: "I'm back with another maths quiz. Be careful... These questions might tease your brain! There are some easy ones though, and you can use a calculator for the tough questions.

(Hint: 1 pound = 100 pence) 0.4812 p £4812 £48.12 48.12 p Question 4:A box contains 20 fresh fruits: some mangoes and some grapes. If there are 8 more mangoes than grapes, how many mangoes are there? Answer: (Type the number only (in digits)) Question 5:A card is drawn at random from an ordinary pack of playing cards. What is the probability that it is neither a face card nor a black card? 14/52 = 7/26 20/52 = 5/13 10/52 = 5/26 16/52 = 4/13 Question 6:A certain number of two digits is decreased by 54 when the digits are interchanged. The tens digit is three times the unit digit. Find the number. Answer: (The number 23 does not mean 2 * 3; it means 2 * 10 + 3. Type the number only (in digits).) Question 7:What is the value of 64^(2/3)? 16 42.67 8 455.11 Question 8:A pile of 15 boxes is 3 metres high.
