### How many points will you score? Test your mathematical skills by taking this blam quiz!

Mathematics and numbers can sometimes be a bit scary, but they can be very useful on this spinning rock we call Earth. Maths isn't something that was invented to fill the hour between Geography and lunch time. Nope! This origin story dates back to Sumerians, who created their own study of measurement in Mesopotamia around 5000 years ago. That's just before your teacher was born!

Early civilisations developed maths to help them in many aspects of every day life, like keeping an eye on their stock or working out how much land they needed to work on to ensure crops would sustain their community.

But it was the likes of BC boffins Euclid, Pythagoras, and Archimedes who did the groundwork for the maths we know and use today. They truly were the influencers of their era and came up with theories that are still put in practice now. You may have learned about Pythagoras' theorem: "the square on the hypotenuse of a right-angled triangle is equal in area to the sum of the squares on the other two sides". Thanks Pythagz!

In the 10th century, Islamic scientists worked on the ideas behind arithmetic, algebra and geometry. The introduction of Arabic numeral and the idea of zero was a total game-changer. If the word 'blam' existed back then, you would have heard it a lot when it came to mathematics.

Lots of maths history to take in there, but never fear, we're not going to test you on that. This is a simple quiz with some basic maths questions to get your brain ticking.

Once you've tackled this quiz, we're sure that you'll want to take even more number-based tests! If you're in a rush, we've got a Quick Maths Quiz, if you're hundreds of years old, we're got a Roman Numerals Quiz, or if you love maths and just want even more fun we have the Extra Fun Maths Quiz!
