49/50 the only one I got wrong was the miserly one. Tbf it seems a bit weighted towards good mental maths. The clock one was the hardest for me, took me ages to realise the pattern was 7/8 back, 6/8 back, 5/8 back, 4/8 back. Or come to think of it also 1/8 forward, 1/4 forward, 3/8 forward, 4/8 forward.

And weighted toward knowing mathematical rules. For example, the question "Which number times itself is 1,369?" The options are 12, 25, 37, and 50. The only way to get an odd answer is to multiply odd x odd, so 12 and 50 are out. That leaves 25 and 37. The answer whenever you multiply by a number ending in 5 always ends in 5 or 0, so 25 is out. The answer has to be 37. Another way to come at it is that "1,369" ends in 9, so the square root has to end in 3 or 7, because those are the only digits who squares end in 9. There's no option ending in 3, so it has to be the one ending in 7. There are several math questions on this thing like that: where it looks like you have to do a lot of calculating, but if you understand the rules and relationships, you can do them quickly without calculating. Seems like that's how you get a high score, because given the time crunch, it seems really tough to do all the calculations and finish in time.

I got them all except the coin-flip one, which I still cannot compute. I thought with independent probability, each flip has 1/2 chance of being heads, and because each flip is independent of the others, it's 1/2 overall. Seems like you get to the /8 denominator by multiplying the three denominators (/2) from each flip, but where does the 7/ numerator come from? Is this the calculation where you get the opposite conclusion and then subtract from one? So...1/2 odds of getting tails on a given flip...three flips...1/2 x 1/2 x 1/2 = 1/8 chance you'll get tails three times, which means the odds of not getting tails three times (i.e., at least one flip is heads) is 7/8. I think I just answered my own question, but can someone confirm this is right? I don't remember learning this in school.
+5
Level 82
Sep 18, 2020
that's right
+8
Level 46
Sep 18, 2020
It is because it is the odds of a heads on the first flip + the odds of a head on the second flip given a tails on the first + the odds of a heads on the third flip given a tails on the first and second flips. Ie 1/2 + (1/2*1/2) + (1/2*1/2*1/2) = 1/2 + 1/4 + 1/8 = 4/8 + 2/8 + 1/8 = 7/8.

it's a different way to ask what the odds of getting all tails on 3 flips would be, which is 1/2 3 times.

Level 28
Jun 19, 2021
I think if you draw a probability tree out, with each throw having an outcome of heads or tails (1/2 each), you then have to add up each time you get a head, it should be 7/8. I'm not sure how that would work but I think that's how you get the answer. You would end up with 7 chances of a head but I'm not sure where the 8 comes from

The 8 is the number of possible outcomes of flipping a coin 3 times:

HHH

HTT

THT

TTH

HHT

HTH

TTT

of which 7 contain at least one H, so the chance of getting at least one H is 7/8.

Sep 19, 2020
Your answer to number 40 is wrong. As a matter of fact, the right answer doesn't appear as one of the choices.

40. Only 20% of farms have good soil. But these farms produce 80% of the crops. How many times more productive is a farm with good soil than one without?

Farms with good soil are 15 times more productive. They are 16 times as productive, but only 15 times more productive.

+3
Level 65
Sep 23, 2020

Suppose there are 5 farms in the scenario that make 10 crops. 1 farm (1/5 = 20%) is the most productive, and it makes 8 crops (80%). The other 4 farms collectively make 2 crops, or 0.5 each. So the top farm makes 8 crops to any other farm's 0.5. 8 is 16x 0.5

+5
Level 62
Sep 29, 2020
If I have one, and you have 16, you have 16 times as much as me, not 16 times more than me. You would need to have 17 to my one in order to have 16 times more. The answer is 16 times as much or 15 times more. 16 times more is wrong.
+2
Level 78
Jan 2, 2021
I suppose this comes down to the way you translate this into understanding. Most people would say "16 times as much as" is the same as "16 times more". If this were a question about percents, it would be different. e.g. 30% more=1.3x as much. But this is asking for the factor. Although I do agree that the wording could be made more clear.

This is a great quiz, however, the question with the fan, the car, the bike, and the boat confused me a little... since the car and the boat are both vehicles, and they contain fans for the engine (in some of them), just like some bikes contain fans (for the engine/motor). Basically I just feel like a different set of answers would improve it a little, but it's only minor! Thanks!

You probably suffer from availability bias. Many smart people overestimate the intelligence of average people since they interact with so few of them.

This leads to the frequent, but very incorrect, opinion that IQ doesn't matter. Spend some time around people with below average intelligence and you'll realize that IQ matters. A lot.

I think intelligence matters but IQ doesn't. At least where I'm from, anyway. It's not a common test for people to take and IQ tests are not well regarded in the education community.

50/50 - The difference between getting a 45 and a 50 (if math is your hangup), is just being able to move on as soon as you've ruled out answers that can't be right. For example the 119 * 119 question: I don't need to figure it out, I just know that 100 * 100 is 10,000, and there's only one answer bigger than 10,000. There are a bunch of problems like that, and if you can do that problem in 2 seconds instead of 45, it lets you spend more time elsewhere if you need it.

An IQ test measures the raw processing power of your brain, so of course time is a factor. It measures how quickly your brain can process data and do abstract calculations.

It's similar to a computer benchmark in which you measure how many operations a computer chip can do in a certain time, or how long it takes to do a certain job (both measure how many calculations per second).

The time limit is an important part of an IQ test. It is an assessment that measures a range of cognitive abilities, including solving problems, using logic, and spatial reasoning and how well the test taker can do these things within a time limit. Cognitive abilities by definition includes how fast you can do things and how well you can do them under pressure. Taking it away would make this test not an IQ test.

47/50 with 2 minutes left, though I got fooled by how numbers are written in english (as opposed to french) : we use a komma to indicate decimals and space out groops of 3 numbers, while in english the point is used for the decimals and a komma for thousands.

Example :

French writing : this house costs 1 000 000,00€

English writing : this house costs \$1,000,000.00

So I misinterpreted a number in the thousands as a much smaller number with decimals, whose order of magnitude couldn't be true.

The odds question is incorrect. 7/8 is the probability. Odds are equal to the probability of an event happening divided by the probability of the event not happening. Here, that is 7/8 / 1/8 = 7/1 = 7. The odds are 7, or as odds are most typically expressed, 7:1 or 7 to 1.
