Numerical Word Problems, also simply called math word problems, are mathematical questions presented in a written format. The questions will assess your mathematical ability and your logical reasoning.

**What questions can I expect?**

The word problems can range from short to long, from simple to complex. Some questions will only require mathematical ability to solve, others will require logical reasoning as well.

A) 6

B) 5

C) 3

D) 2

__Explanation:__

First find how many teddy bears one machine can create in 50 minutes:

10 ÷ 2 = 5

50 ÷ 5 = 10 minutes per teddy bear
At last find how many teddy bears the machine can create in 30 minutes:

30 ÷ 10 = 3 teddy bears
