10. Three individuals form a partnership and agree to divide profits equally. X invests $9,000, Y invests $7,000 and Z invests $4,000. If the profits are $4,800, how much less does X receive than if the profits were divided in proportion to the amount invested?







11. Assume the first two statements are true. Is the final one...

Is this junior high work? No wonder Vince Young failed so hard.

Yeah me too. I kept thinking......"It can't be this simple." But since it's timed and 50 questions, I can see where people would miss things in a rush. I misread a question and I wasn't even rushing or under stress. Still....no one should get under a 20 on this. Ever.

15/15 because I'm good with timed tests. This test is all about paying attention to detail. It's better to take your time and score in the 30's or 40's than to rush and get below a 10.

I got 15/15, but I kind of guessed #14 and #9 took me a minute to work out.

If April was a answer I would have said that, but I had to guess between march and may XD

9 and 10 aren't exactly chip shots. Especially if you refuse to use paper, haha.

The rest though, pretty easy. And I don't consider myself a great tester.

The OP missed one key element to this - time. The Wonderlic Test is 50 questions in 12 minutes which equals to just under 15 seconds per question. So for this 15 question test, you had to complete it in 3.6 minutes.

We either have the smartest MB ever or people are lying or you took as long as you wanted.

True. I didn't even think of that because I answered each question pretty much while I was reading it. There were only 2 that took more time than the others. #9 & #10.

I got #9 wrong since my thinking was you could fit everything into the 20 pages with small print.

And #10 was simple since I had a calculator on my desk but already knew what steps I needed to take to get my answer.

But to get low scores like a 7 is a little ridiculous. Just like everyone else, I was expecting something pretty hard somewhat. Most of this was just common sense and it's believable that the players with low score really have no common sense what so ever. I'm also curious as to what Teo will score because after the whole GF scandal...he must have no brains what so ever.

I answered most quicker than that, but 9 took me a minute without paper so I think I'm pretty sure I went over 3.6 minutes.

I got 12 out of 15, chose not to mess with the ones that had long reading involved due to time. I will add that I got a 28 on the ACT and a 1360 on the SAT before college so I am fairly sharp. LOL

I tried to make it realistic and rushed through it.

Still hit on 11 of 15. That projects to a score of 37 if it were 50 questions.

I have a GED after dropping out in 9th grade.

These players fresh out of college should be getting great scores.
