# MATHS QUIZ: Can You Solve These Pre-Algebra Questions? Take A Shot At Them

Here in this Maths Quiz, we are concentrating on these few Pre-Algebra questions. Let’s not forget that Algebra is the part of mathematics that helps represent problems or situations in the form of mathematical expressions.

LET’S HAVE FUN!!!

• Question of

## Melanie starts the week with \$y During the course of the week, she multiplies this amount by 4. Then she has to pay \$180 rent and a \$60 power bill. At the end of the week Melanie has \$280 left. Write this as an algebraic equation.

• 4y − 240 = 280
• 4y − 120 = 280
• 4(y − 240) = 280
• 4(y − 120) = 280
• Question of

## Nick bakes n batches of muffins with 12 muffins in each batch. He eats one muffin from each batch to try them out. When he’s finished baking, Nick has 88 muffins left. Write this as an algebraic equation.

• 11n = 88
• 11(n − 1) = 88
• 12(n − 1) = 88
• 12n = 88
• Question of

## Olive starts with a number z, divides it by 5, and then subtracts 12. The answer is -z Write this as an algebraic equation.

• z/5 − 12 = -z
• z + 12/5 = z
• z − 12/5 = -z
• Question of

## Pablo starts with a number y, adds 11, and then divides by 4. The answer is 3y Write this as an algebraic equation.

• y + 11 / 4 = 3y
• y/4 + 11 = 3y
• y − 11/ 4 = 3y
• Question of

## Start with a number x, add 7, and then divide by 5. The answer is 2. Write this as an algebraic equation.

• X + 7/5 = 2
• X-7/=5
• x/5 + 7 = 2
• Question of

## Every month Stan earns \$y and pays \$40 in tax. If he doesn’t spend or receive any more money, how much more money does Stan have at the end of the year than he had at the beginning of the year?

• \$12(y − 40)
• \$(12y + 40)
• \$(12y − 40)
• \$12(y + 40)
