Not completely mathematically hopeless, then.

You Passed 8th Grade Math

Congratulations, you got 10/10 correct!

I got an 8/10 and I'm an ex-math major. I want to know what I got wrong! This is so upsetting!

Well, I almost got tripped up by the 4 1/3 + x = 7, so maybe that was it (I almost said 3 2/3 instead of 2 2/3. But then, my math is /almost/ completely hopeless.)

I got that one right...I think I screwed up the mean/median/mode problem. I've never understood anything but averages when it comes to that sort of stuff.

I don't remember what the mean is (same as average, I think), but median is the value in the middle of the scale, and mode is the value most often repeated.

But I had to think about that one for a minute or so to be sure I was remembering correctly.

That would explain it, then.

The one that assumes that 45% = 0.45 is poorly phrased.

Yes - I had to read it about three times to make sure I was getting what the author intended.
