Try to solve the simple math equations below by using a rest as the answer.

Hover over the equation to see the solution.

A dot after a rest adds half the value of that rest. For example, a dotted half rest will receive 3 beats. That is because a half rest receives 2 beats, half of 2 is 1, and 2 plus 1 is 3. While the dotted half rest is an option, it is more common to see a half rest followed by a quarter rest.
