Are You Smarter Than A Fourth Grader?

Here are 12 of the 30 questions from the 2016 Whatcom County Math Championship test given to fourth graders. To beat math champ Ethan Rockwell of Silver Beach Elementary, you will need to get at least nine of the 12 correct. How many can you get right (even with the help of multiple choice)? No calculators, Google or mathematically inclined friends allowed (not even fourth-graders).

Blanche Templar, 5! = 1 x 2 x 3 x 4 x 5 = 120 combinations of 5 distinct elements.

stanbbren, Sorry, 125% is the correct answer. 60 is larger than 48 so just using good old logic, the answer HAS to be over 100%

THIS IS NOT a Fourth Grade test! I only taught for 45 years.

8 out of 12...well, considering that I guess for 6 out of those 8, I should've purchased a lotto ticket, yesterday...
