# Can You Pass A Standardized Test About Life In 2015?

Would you rather: answer geometry questions using selfie angles or seesaws? Vocabulary questions used to describe a social media beef or an ancient poem? Yeah, that’s what we thought!

1. ## 1. Man Bun Arithmetic

Correct!
Wrong!

.25 feet is 3 inches. 12 inches are needed. 12 - 3 inches that you have = 9 inches of hair needed. 9/3=3. 3 months.

3. ## 3. Swipe Right Percentages

Correct!
Wrong!

10% of 200 is 20. 800 / 200 = 4. 20 x 4 = 80

4. ## 4. What Are Those?! Sentence Corrections

Correct!
Wrong!

"simultaneous(C)" needs to appear as an adverb in this sentence since it is describing the verb, pointing.

5. ## 5. Selfie Geometry

Correct!
Wrong!

Using the reference triangle, the side opposite of 60° = x√3. With the selfie stick being 2x at 30” makes x = 15; therefore, 15√3, is the answer.

7. ## 7. Picking A Movie Possibilities

Correct!
Wrong!

There are 6 movies offered; let us refer to them as A, B, C, D, E, and F. One way to find the number of combinations is to list all possible pairings. They are AB, AC, AD, AE, AF, BC, BD, BE, BF, CD, CE, CF, DE, DF, and EF. There are 15 combinations. Note that AB and BA represent the same combination. You could also notice that there are 5 pairings that start with movie A and 4 additional pairings that start with movie 2, and so forth. The total number of combinations is 5 + 4 + 3 +2 + 1 = 15.

8. ## 8. Follower Arithmetic

Correct!
Wrong!

Andrew = Britney + Lance - 0.9; Thomas = Lance + 1.2; Britney = 2 Thomas - 3.4; Lance = 5.3 Thomas = 5.3 + 1.2 = 6.5 Britney = 2(6.5) - 3.4 = 9.6 Andrew = 9.6 + 5.3 - 0.9 = 14

10. ## 10. Pizza Geometry

Correct!
Wrong!

Using the circle reference, area of a circle = (π)r^2. The diameter of the pizza is 12; therefore, the radius is 6. The area of the total pizza is 36. 75% of 36 is 27; therefore, toppings must at least cover 27.
