5 Math Quizzes to Test Your Skills in Arithmetic

The author is a creative and open-minded writer who also loves to attempt and develop quizzes.

Math was my favorite subject when I was in primary school and secondary school because of its straightforwardness. When I reached the university level, I chose to pursue the field of statistics because of the mathematics aspect.

However, just into the first year, I quickly realized that the math in a Bachelor of Science in Statistics was more advanced than the one I had come across in my previous school years. I was introduced to calculus, probability and statistics, time series analysis, and many other math units that required focus and dedication. They were tough, and I barely made it through in the end. But, my passion for math hasn’t stopped. I still look forward to solving all sorts of math problems that come my way.

If you love mathematics too, you should try the following five quizzes, which are moderately easy word problems suitable for anyone above the age of eleven. Every quiz set has a total of five questions. I will provide the answers at the end, but I urge you to attempt the questions first before looking at the solutions.
