Are You Smarter than a 120-year old 8th grader?

via Morehead State:

  • Name and define the Fundamental Rules of Arithmetic.

  • A wagon box is 2 ft. deep, 10 feet long, and 3 ft. wide. How many bushels of wheat will it hold?

  • If a load of wheat weighs 3942 lbs., what is it worth at 50 cts. per bu., deducting 1050 lbs. for tare?

  • District No. 33 has a valuation of $35,000. What is the necessary levy to carry on a school seven months at $50 per month, and have $104 for incidentals?

  • Find cost of 6720 lbs. coal at $6.00 per ton.

  • Find the interest of $512.60 for 8 months and 18 days at 7 percent.

  • What is the cost of 40 boards 12 inches wide and 16 ft. long at $20 per m?

  • What is the cost of a square farm at $15 per are, the distance around which is 640 rods?

  • Write a Bank Check, a Promissory Note, and a Receipt.

This is just one of five subjects.  I think I could keep up with the curve on most of these things. Theoretically.
