While we offer the largest collection of WAEC past questions on the web, we decided it would be better to create a free WASSCE quiz page that’d test students in real time on various WASSCE subjects.

Questions in our WASSCE Mathematics quiz section have been carefully curated from WASSCE past questions and other helpful resources.

## Quick Notes

- For the WASSCE Math quiz, we used the
**dollar sign ($**) when dealing with currencies to create a common standard that’d prevent confusion. - The answer for each question on this practice test will be shown after you’ve made your choice.
- Don’t cheat during the test. You would only be deceiving yourself if you do, so be strict with yourself.
- Not all questions on this practice test include hints.
- Contact us if you experience any problem on the test.

##### 2. Question

If a positive whole number is divisible by 6 and by 9, then the number must be divisible by which of the following?

Correct

A positive whole number that’s divisible by 6 has at least one 2 and one 3 in its prime factorization. An positive whole number that’s divisible by 9 has at least two 3s in its prime factorization. Therefore, an integer that’s divisible by both 6 and 9 has at least one 2 and two 3s in its prime factorization. That means it is divisible by 2 and 3: 2 x 3 6, 3 x 3 9, and 2 x 3 x 3 = 18.

Incorrect

A positive whole number that’s divisible by 6 has at least one 2 and one 3 in its prime factorization. An positive whole number that’s divisible by 9 has at least two 3s in its prime factorization. Therefore, an integer that’s divisible by both 6 and 9 has at least one 2 and two 3s in its prime factorization. That means it is divisible by 2 and 3: 2 x 3 6, 3 x 3 9, and 2 x 3 x 3 = 18.
