For several years now you have been learning about how to measure things such as how tall are you or the length of your room and/or how wide or how long a table is. This can all be determined by using a ruler or measuring tape. A ruler generally is the length of 12 inches.
You also learned that 12 inches is equal to 1 foot. Finally, you learned that 3 feet equals 1 yard. This all might seem second nature to you now but it is always important to review, even the basics, before heading into a new area of math such as the metric system. So this quiz will revisit as a refresher the way to add, subtract, multiply and divide measurements.
To make it a little more challenging, we will go beyond just the inch, foot and yard because, although these measurements are very good, what happens when something is not equal to a perfect inch or a perfect foot or even a perfect yard?
The solution is that there are measurements that are smaller than an inch. These measurements include the half inch where 2 half inches are equal to an inch, or four quarter inches where 4 quarters are equal to an inch and the eighth inch where 8 eighth inches are equal to an inch. In fact, we can even go smaller in our measurements on a ruler but for this quiz, we will stick to the inch, the half inch, the quarter inch and the eighth inch.
The math symbol for “inch” is " (almost looks like quotation marks) and the math symbol for a foot is ' which looks very much like an apostrophe.
For each of the following measurement problems, find the correct solution/answer.
