There's a Police Numeracy Assessment?
I've always believed that there was no intelligence test to join the NZ Police.
The fact that the "correct" answer is given as 1 as opposed to 3/5 suggests that the situation is far worse... the Police apparently seek to avoid hiring people with numeracy skills. Perhaps this reduces Police payroll costs?
I cannot see a way to arrive at the answer 1, can you?
Prezactly! Anyone with the necessary numeracy to come up with 3/5 will be penalised. Only the innumerate *and* lucky guessers will get 1.
Must try this... "Speeding? Oh no, officer. My speed was to limit as 5/3 is to 1/5".
