Today marks the beginning of the Chinese New Year celebration, also referred to as Spring Festival. This year, the two-week holiday to mark the year of the Monkey lasts from February 8 through February 22 with the celebration of the Lantern Festival.
If you want to wish someone a happy new year in Chinese Mandarin, you can say, “gong-xi-fa-cai” pronounced like “gong-shee-faa-tsai.” This is written as 恭喜发财。
At Piqosity we’re marking the occasion with a fun math problem set for the New SAT. Through the link, you’ll find three problems that are monkey themed.
Pro Tip – Behind the monkey veneer, these are just normal SAT questions. Don’t let all the monkey business distract you from understanding what the question is asking!
