6th Grade MAP Math Question

Farmer Brown needs to fit all his cows and sheep into a large pen. He sees two rectangular pens for sale. One measures 30 m by 15 m. The other measures 45 m by 10 m. Farmer Brown thinks they are both the same, and therefore, just buys the cheaper pen. Which property does he use to say they are the same?

A) They have the same perimeter

B) They have the same area

C) They have the same supplier

D) They have the same volume

Answer and Explanation

The correct answer is (B).

Farmer Brown is interested in how much space there will be inside the pen for the animals. He has been told the length and width of two rectangular pens. From this, you can calculate the area of ground the animals will be in. The first pen has an area of 30 x 15 = 450 m2. The second pen has an area of 45 x 10 = 450 m2. Therefore, he sees they have the same area, so just buys the cheaper pen.

Answer (A) is wrong, because if you add up the perimeter of both pens, they are different. Perimeter of pen A is 30 + 30 + 15 + 15 = 90 m. Perimeter of pen B is 45 + 45 + 10 + 10 = 110m.
Answer (C) is wrong, because this information is not given.
Answer (D) is wrong, because the volume is not given. To calculate the volume, you would need the height of the pens, which is not given.


6th Grade MAP Reading Comprehension Question

Read the paragraph.

Her clever jokes and her quick tongue always get her out of trouble. She is extremely ______ and everyone who knows her talks about her puns and how she plays with words.

Which of the following words can be used to fill the blank in the best way?

A) funny






Answer and Explanation

The correct answer is (B).

The words in the answers are all related—their meanings are very close. Each of them can fit in the blank, but you are asked which one fits in the best way. Therefore, it is necessary to pay attention to detail and think about the small differences between the words.

Funny means "causing laughter." A funny person is a person who makes others laugh. This meaning is general. Funny can also mean "strange."

Witty means "intelligently funny." A witty person uses intelligent and mature humor to make others laugh.

Amusing means "quietly and pleasantly entertaining." An amusing person makes others laugh, but in a more quiet and less evident way than a funny person.

Hilarious means "extremely funny." A hilarious person makes others laugh very hard.

The individual described in the given paragraph has "clever jokes" and a "quick tongue", and "everyone who knows her talks about her puns and how she plays with words." Since there is so much focus on her cleverness and her intelligent jokes (such as puns and wordplay) and not just on how she makes people laugh, the best answer choice is (B), "witty."
