Numerical Computation Practical Test 1
Numerical computation questions involve basic principles of arithmetic like addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. They also use mathematical terms and methods such as percentages, ratios, fractions and decimals. To score well on these questions you will simply need to make quick and accurate calculations.
This type of test can be categorized as a speed test and is used to determine your basic numeracy. Obviously you will not be allowed to use a calculator.
If you are very rusty with arithmetic, try re-learning the times tables up to 12 and practise multiplication, division and percentage calculations. Practice can improve your test scores for all types of aptitude tests, so try as many examples as you can.
These sample numerical computation questions are directly applicable to many administrative and clerical jobs but can also appear as a component of graduate and managerial tests. The speed at which you can answer these questions is the critical measure, as most people could achieve a very high score given unlimited time in which to answer.
Test 1—20 Questions Instructions: Answer as many questions as you can in 10 minutes. Select the letter which corresponds to the correct answer. Do not use a calculator.
