**I**t doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know how to solve the quadratic formula, but it does take a whip-smart mathematician with a penchant for memorizing equations and solving square roots. If that sounds like you, these math trivia questions and answers will be easy as pi.

While math isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, there’s no denying the brain-boosting benefits of practicing your arithmetic. After all, our world is full of numbers, and knowing how to manipulate them is practically a superpower. Whether you’re doubling a recipe or painting your house, it’s totally rational to want to keep your calculating prowess primed and ready.

Once you’ve proven your finesse for fractions with our math quiz, keep flexing your brain on other science trivia like physics or chemistry. And if you’re planning to put your knowledge to the test at your local pub’s next trivia night, just remember that it’s dangerous to drink and derive.
