# Wonderlic Assessment (WPT-R) Test

#### Nick, the supplier, sent 350 yards of ribbon per day from Tuesday to Friday. He supplied 700 yards of ribbon per day from Saturday to Monday. What was the average length of ribbon provided by Nick each day?

Explanation:

Multiply the number from Tuesday to Friday by 4.

350 x 4 = 1400

Multiply the number from Saturday to Monday by 3.

700 x 3 = 2100

Add the numbers.

1400+ 2100= 3500

Divide by 7.

3500 ÷ 7 = 500

#### Every __ years, there is a leap year.

Explanation:

#### There are 120 cookies in a cookie jar. 75 of the cookies have chocolate chips in them. How many chocolate chip cookies are there in the jar?

Explanation:

Because the values of each option are so close, we'll have to calculate the percentage manually. To make things easier, reduce the figures listed in the question to 10%. 120 = 12 75 = 7.5 7.5 / 120 = 0.625 0.625 x 100 = 62.50%

#### What is the following number in the sequence?

325 300 310 285 295 270 280 255 __?

Explanation:

Remember that a series might be made up of different operations or relationships. As a result, choose an answer from the options only after you've determined the series' flow.

Determine the link between the second and first numbers, the third and fourth numbers, and so on.

When you look at the series, you'll see a pattern: subtract 25, then add 10.

265 is the correct answer.

5.2 x 15 = 78

This method is particularly effective in the final minutes of the test.

To make sensible predictions for math questions like this, use approximation calculations.
