police 385x261 300x203 Police Test Math Questions   Get Sample Mathematic Questions for the Police ExamThere are eight main components on the civil service police exam. One area that seems to be a problem for most applicants is the math section. Don’t get me wrong, some recruits sail through this section without a hitch but many fail.  If you are not strong in mathematics, I recommend sites like www.math.com to help you brush up.

The good thing is you can find various sites on the internet to help improve your math. If you decide to invest in a police exam study guide you’ll get practice math questions as well as a detailed review on the other seven components of the police test.

Here’s a sample police exam  math problem:

Example Mathematics Question:

The members of the traffic enforcement division issued the following citations during a recent six-day period.

Officer Millett issued 33 citations.

Officer Rodgers issued 108 citations.

Officer Smith issued 40 citations.

Officer Bryd issued 24 citations.

How many citations were issued by the two traffic enforcement officers writing the most citations for this time period?

(A) 143

(B) 75

(C) 134

(D) 148

The answer is D. 108 + 40 = 148.

The mathematics section of the police officer test is not very difficult, but it can be if you don’t follow instructions. The real reason why some candidates fail this section is because they don’t follow the instructions properly. That’s why it is so vital to read the instructions thoroughly before selecting your answer.
