This week the MacAulay and Co. team are helping parents support their children through the exam period.

Along with lots of advice and tips, all week they're going to be challenging Radio Scotland presenters to sit a 5 minute standard grade exam. Today it was the turn of Scotland Live and Newsdrive presenter Nick Rougvie and here's the maths question he was asked:

There were 4 girls and 14 boys in a class.
A child is chosen at random and is asked to roll a die, numbered 1 to 6.

Which of these is more likely?

A: the child is female.
B: the child rolls a 5.

....Listen again to the show to find out how he got on and tune in to Tuesday's show when they'll be testing Kaye Adams.
