SOLUTION
Part 1: Rashid won.
Work/Explanation: 9,730 > 8,520
OR
Rashid has 9,730 and Matthew has 8,520.
OR
Student states that Rashid’s largest number can have a “9” in the thousands place so it
will be greater than Matthew’s largest number, which can only have an “8” in the
thousands place.
Part 2: Matthew won.
Work/Explanation: 2,058 < 3,079 (or 0258 < 0379)
OR
Matthew has 2,058 and Rashid has 3,079 (or 0258 and 0379).
OR
Student states that Matthew’s smallest number can have a “2” in the thousands place
so it will be less than Rashid’s number since the smallest digit he can have in the
thousands place is a “3.

E. Jake used the 100’s chart above to solve a mystery number puzzle with the
following clues:
● It is a two-digit number greater than 23, but less than 50.
● It is an even number.
● Two, four, and twelve are some of its factors.
● The sum of its digits is a two-digit number.
What is the mystery number?
2004 – /8
SOLUTION AND SCORING
Answer: The mystery number is 48.
Explanations may be:
● Numerical –
 Clue 1: All numbers from 24 to 49 (or 23 to 50) are listed.
 Clue 2: All odd numbers are eliminated: 24, 26, 28, 30, 32, 34, 36, 38, 40, 42,
44, 46, 48 remain.
 Clue 3: All numbers that do not have two, four and twelve as factors are
eliminated: 24, 36 and 48 remain.
 Clue 4: All numbers whose digit sum is not a two-digit number are eliminated:
only 48 remains.
Note: Some students perform Clue 4 before Clue 3 (after Clues 1 and 2).
♦ Example: 28, 38, 46 and 48 remain since the digit sum is a 2-digit number. Then,
the only number remaining with factors of 2, 4 and 12 is 48.
OR
● A chart – The numbers are listed and eliminated clue by clue. The clues are
differentiated in some way.

ELKINS ELEMENTARY (NEVIN) MATH RELEASED ITEMS – 4TH GRADE   UPDATED 7/2008            16
OR
● Verbal – The response contains a correct and complete verbal explanation of the
procedure using elimination clue by clue, with at least 24, 36, and 48 mentioned (or
28, 38, 46, and 48 if Clue 4 is performed before Clue 3).
 Example: “First, I omitted all of the numbers that were not greater than 23 or
less than 50.
Then I omitted all of the odd numbers, since it said the number was even. Then I
crossed out all of the numbers that 2, 4, and 12 did not go into, leaving 24, 36 and
48. Then I saw which of these numbers had a 2-digit sum and it was 48.”

SOLUTION AND SCORING
Part 1: (2 points possible)
AND
Work: 1 point for correct and complete procedure shown and/or explained. Work may
contain a calculation or copy error.
● Give credit for the following explanations or equivalent:
 \$1.25 + \$2.25 + \$1.75 + \$3.50 = Total Cost, or
 “I added 1.25, 2.25, 1.75 and 3.50 to get the cost of the supplies.”
Note: Do not give credit for vague or incomplete explanations.
● Example: “I added his supplies.”
Part 2: (2 points possible)
Answer: 2 points for correct answer and explanation based on total in Part 1.
● Give credit for the following or equivalent:
 “Yes, because he only spent (8.75 or Total Cost in Part 1 ≤ 10.00), and he has
10.00” (both 10.00 and Total Cost from Part 1 are mentioned), or
 “Yes, since 8.75 < 10.00,” or
 “Yes, because 10.00 – 8.75 = 1.25,” or
 “No, because he spent (Total Cost in Part 1 > 10.00) and he only has 10.00”
(both 10.00 and Total Cost from Part 1 are mentioned).
OR
1 point for correct “Yes, No” response based on answer in Part 1. Explanation is partial,
vague, or work contains an error.
● Example: Only 10.00 or 8.75 (or Total Cost from Part 1) is mentioned.
● Example: No “Yes, No” answer is given, but work is correct and complete.
Note: Do not give credit for “Yes” or “No” answer without any valid support.

Note: 1 & 2 Gallons and 4 & 8 Quarts (given) may be missing but are required for a
score of 4. Labels (# of Gallons, # of Quarts) may be missing, but are required for
a score of 4.
Ex:

1 point: Chart is incomplete or incorrect due to one of the following:
• 1 or more #s are incorrect due to one calculation, counting or copy error.
Correct procedure used: 4 is added to all entries to get the next entry, or each
entry for # of gallons is multiplied by 4.
Ex: Response contains 1 calculation error.

Error: 20+4=23, others from that point on are correct based on error (+4).
• Chart is incomplete: One entry is missing from 12–40. The #s listed are correct.
Ex:

• The # of Quarts (12–40) are correct and complete but they aren’t associated

• 10/40 = 20/x, x = #, or
• “The chart shows that it would take 40 quarts to fill a 10-gallon tank. A 20-
gallon tank is 2 times larger, so it would need two times as much water so I

• Correct shapes and # of shapes (> 4) needed to make new design with
support explaining or showing why they will work:
Ex: 1 hexagon, 3 trapezoids and 1 square with given diagram correctly divided.
Ex: “4 trapezoids, 3 triangles and one square because 2 trapezoids could make up
each hexagon and 3 triangles could make up one trapezoid.”
Ex: “2 hexagons, 1 square, 1 triangle, 1 rhombus since a trapezoid can be made up
of 1 triangle and 1 rhombus.”
Ex: 5 trapezoids and 1 square with given diagram correctly divided.
Ex: “15 triangles and 1 square because 6 triangles make up 1 hexagon and 3
triangles make up 1 trapezoid so 6 + 6 + 3 = 15 triangles, + 1 square.”

 12 + 6 = 18 and 24 >18, or
 24/12 = 2 and 2 >1 ½, or
 “Twenty-four inches equals two feet, so William’s plant is longer,” or
 “His plant is longer since a foot and a half would only be eighteen inches.”
● Do not give credit for the following incomplete explanations:
 “His plant is 6 inches longer,” or

Part 2: (2 points possible)
1 point for correct answer of “12 inches” or “1 foot.” Label must be correct.
AND
1 point for correct procedure shown and/or explained.
● Give credit for any of the following explanations or equivalent:
 There are 36 inches in a yard. William’s plant is 24 inches long. The difference is
12 inches, or
 1 yard = 3 feet and he has 2 feet. Therefore, it needs to grow 1 foot, or
 1 yard = 36 inches. 36 - 24 = 12 inches.

1 point for correct answer of 4,000 (with or without square feet),
AND
1 point for correct and complete procedure for finding area shown and/or explained.
● Give credit for the following explanations or equivalent:
 Area is found by multiplying the length by the width. The length is 80 feet and
the width is 50 feet. Therefore, the area is 4,000 (square feet), or
 A = 80 x 50 = 4,000 (square feet), or

● Give credit for the following explanations or equivalent:
 Perimeter is found by multiplying the length and the width times two, then
adding these two numbers. Two times 80 is 160. Two times 50 is 100; therefore
160 added to 100 is 260 feet, or
 P = 2l + 2w = 2(80) + 2(50) = 160 + 100 = 260 (feet), or
