Filed under: Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery | Comments Off on A set of ASVAB like mathematics knowledge and arithmetic reasoning Questions
I am trying to create a set of arithmetic and mathematical knowledge questions that are similar to those that are found in study guides for the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery. All the questions are original, I did not copy a question from another source and mix up the names or numbers. ASVAB test questions have a variety of styles for each subtest. I am guessing that the test creators examine the responses from all test takers and try to improve the questions to eliminate those that are too easy and those that take too long to answer.
that is multiplied by the original number number to equal 1.0 34/12 times 12/34 = 408/408 = 1
corridor that is 6 feet wide by 12 feet 9 inches long.
length 4 and [square root of 20, a number between integers 4 and 5]. 4 x 4 + [square root 20][square root 20 = 6 x6
If 6 and 4 were the sides that formed the right angle, the hypotenuse would be [square root of 52].
than 6 but less than 10. If the third side was length 10, it would equal the length of the other two sides.
The angle of the two sides length 4 and 6 would be 180 degrees. A triangle is three intersecting lines with internal angles
equal to 180 degrees.
chapter in his U.S. History book, and a 24 page chapter from the chemistry book. He has completed 1/3 of the reading.
How many pages has he read. 14 + 22 + 12 + 24 = 72 72 x 1/3 = 24
the trip, how many miles per hour did it fly? 750/ 6 = 125
B. The item was purchased by the purchasing department.
C. The equipment cost $ 119.99 plus sales tax.
D. An employee bought the equipment with her own money, and was reimbursed when she came back to the office.

the apartment. What fraction of one month’s rent is the dog fee? 270/900 9 x 30 / 9 x 100 = 3 / 10
for 15 hours per week. The building is closed to everyone on Labor Day, Columbus Day, Thanksgiving Day, and
the Friday after Thanksgiving Day. His hourly pay is $ 8.00 per hour. How many hours will he work?
213 hours 15 weeks but 4 unpaid days = 14 weeks plus 1 day (14 weeks x 15 hours) + (1 day x 3 hours)
to get the product number 24. If there are 24/24ths in a gallon, a pint (1/8th of a gallon) must be 3/24th of a
gallon. 2/3 = 16/24 4 gallons x 24/24 = 96/24 + 16/24 = 112/24 112 divided by 3 = 37, and a remainder of 1.
There are 37 and 1/3 pints [1/3 pint = 1/24 gallon] in 4 2/3 gallons.
One lathe, estimated auction value of 1000 dollars
Two drill presses, estimated value 450 dollars
Three equipment lockers 25 dollars each
Box of wrenches 35 dollars
An auctioneer commission of 15 percent is charged for each item auctioned. What is the estimated charge? $ 234
What is the area of the triangle?
A. [square root of 11, divided by 10] plus [square root of 39, divided by 2]
B. [square root of 22, divided by 5] (originally, square root of 11 times square root of 32 , divided by 20)
C. 2 times [square root of 11] / divided by 10 times [square root of 39]
The answer is 24. This is a right angle triangle, with the hypotenuse side lying flat
base, imagine that it is tilted so that either the 6 or 8 length side is the base. 1/2 b X h 1/2 (6×8) = 24
If a picture were shown, it might seem as if the perpendicular line intersects the base at 5 inches on either side.
in the past about a “Balanced Billing Program”. The three highest bills and the three lowest bills of the past 12 bills are
added together, and an average billing amount is calculated. The average is changed with each September bill.
Gretchen’s three high and three low bills were 150, 100, 90, 45, 39, and 32 dollars. If she chose balanced billing,
how much would she be billed each month? 456 dollars divided by 6 = 76
exercise without being leashed. Three condemned homes were razed so that the lots can be joined together to make
the park. Each lot was 120 feet deep with 60 feet width. What length of fencing is needed to surround the park.? 600 feet
exercise. The design plan calls for the use of prefabricated fence panels on posts that are eight feet long and
seven feet high. If the perimeter of the lot is six hundred feet, how many fence panels need to be purchased? 75
108 120 135 144 135 An octagon has 8 points. Lines from a center point can be drawn to points
A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H on the corners of the octagon. Eight triangles are formed inside the octagon.
360 degrees divided by 8 = 45 degrees. The interior angles of a triangle total 180 degrees. The other angles
are 135 degrees divided by 2 or 67.5 on each corner. Add the angles on each side of the line together.
180 sided figure. 2 degrees at top, 89 degree angles on the sides, 178 degrees of angle of points A,B,C
of the 180 side points.
Mathematics: 20 Which equation is incorrect? A. [square root of 3] + [square root of 4] = [square root of 5]
A > 4 but A < 11
D.5,6,7,8,9,10 D. the > sign is for greater than, the < is less than The characters with a bar underneath them
are “equal to or greater than” and “less than or equal to” / with an equal sign through it
means that the number is not equal the next number.
measures ____ degrees?
of the longest side? Answer 11 The average length of the three sides is 27/3 or 9. 9 is probably one of the
three numbers. 5 + 7 + 9 = 25 7 + 9 + 11 = 27 9 + 11 + 13 =33 .
