Doug Andrew has a short math quiz that imparts some very important lessons. It’s only 3 questions long but a surprising number of professionals like CPAs or tax attorneys will still miss one or more of the answers.

It’s not that they are lacking brainpower. More often than not, they simply don’t know what they don’t know.

How will you do?

1. If it take 5 machines 5 minutes to make 5 widgets, how long would it take 100 machines to make 100 widgets?
2. In a pond there is a patch of lilies. Every day the patch doubles in size. If it takes 48 days for the patch to cover the entire lake, how long would it take for the patch to cover half the lake?
3. A bat and a ball cost \$1.10. The bat costs one dollar more than the ball. How much does the ball cost?
