Hi, my daughter has been asked to sit an assessment test for a school this Saturday; it includes verbal/non-verbal reasoning, and numerical reasoning. We've done some of the first two, but can anyone point me in the direction of some online examples of numerical reasoning questions???

Any help much appreciated!

I think numerical reasoning is also called quantative reasoning if that helps.

Quantitative reasoning gets my vote.

Have a look on google there are lots of free online tests. I know a site called jobtestprep that have some example questions. Hope that helps

If you can find it in time this book would help.

Example questions:
What is the number when: 8 is 2 smaller than half this number?

Halve the number of months in a year and multiply by half the number of years in a decade.

Using 3 numbers from the set (4, 5, 6, 7, 10), place them in the spaces to make the following sum _ x _ - _ = 26

Sequences:
37, 39, 36, 40, 35, _, _

3 digit addition/subtraction with missing digits (ie work out the digit)

My watch is 15 minutes slow. In 20 minutes it will sy 2:35pm. What is the correct time now?

I think numerical reasoning can often include interpreting the data from charts / graphs - so worth finding some examples of those as well. (Sorry don't know where you would look)
