The mathematics knowledge subtest contains 25 questions about basic high school mathematics. You have 24 minutes to complete it.

The vast majority of questions on this subtest are mathematical equations that you’ll have to solve. Topics include multiplying variables with exponents, working with fractions, area and volume calculations, factoring, and other basic mathematics concepts. The questions are designed to be done on scratch paper or in your head as no calculator is allowed on the ASVAB test.

You’ll see a question containing a mathematical problem and four choices for answers. Choose the option that best answers the question. Each question also has explanatory text on the answers page to take you through getting the answer to any questions you may have missed.
