Sample Math Word Problem question.

In the example question above the right answer is E, "Thursday 25 September".  Today is 11th August. August has 31 days which means that it will be 11th September in exactly 31 days. This leaves 45 – 31 = 14 days; 11 + 14 = 25, thus the exam presentation will take place on 25 September. Now we need to determine on which day this will fall. Today is Monday. Monday + 1 week is Monday; there are 6 weeks and 3 days in 45 days. Monday + 3 days brings us to Thursday so the exam presentation will happen on Thursday 25th September.

Number Series

In a number series question, you are asked to find a connection between given numbers in a sequence and choose the right number that comes next. These questions provide the employing organization with information about a candidate’s general ability to logically reason with numbers. 

wonderlic-number-series-test-example-question

Sample Number Series question.

In the example above the right answer 63. After the first number, 6 is added, then every next step the number that is added will be increased by 3. So ultimately 18 is added to 45 which comes to 63.
