the runner of this messed up
Your question told me to round to the nearest whole number for the first one
the number was this 64 458/781 x 183
The second one said to round to the nearest hundred.
what do you think the answer is?


Devin Cooke October 24, 2013 at 2:50 pm

Bernardita Torrente January 5, 2014 at 3:05 pm

Anyone can help, where can i find the information that says there’s a time limit when practicing!

thank you


The IXL Blog January 6, 2014 at 10:56 am

Hi, Bernardita. Were you asking about how to hide the timer? If you are a parent or teacher, you can do this by clicking on your username in the top right hand corner and selecting “Profile and Settings.” Then scroll down and check the box next to “Hide timer” and hit “Submit.”


Teagan January 8, 2014 at 4:01 pm

I’m very sorry I like ixl but, is it really necessary to take off seven points or more when you get the question wrong? It gets highly frustrating when you do this and it discourages me please fix it.


The IXL Blog January 9, 2014 at 12:57 pm

Hi, Teagan. We’re very sorry to hear you’re feeling discouraged. Your SmartScore is adjusted when you miss a question in order to bring you to a level where you can better understand the topic. This allows you to review the basics of the concept before having to tackle the harder stuff! The idea is that when you reach 100, you can be sure you truly understand the skill. If you are having trouble with a specific topic, we recommend you speak to your teacher or parents about it.


Teagan January 10, 2014 at 5:29 am

I have talked to my parents and they agree. I understand the scoring but I don’t understand why you people have to take off so many points. I spent the other night 3 hours doing an ixl because you kept taking off so many points. Why can’t you take off like three points or 5 points not seven. It is still discouraging.


Teagan January 10, 2014 at 5:33 am

I spent three hours on the ixl trying to get to the hundred on a topic I DID understand. I understand you logic but cant you try to lower the amount of points you take off?


The IXL Blog January 10, 2014 at 9:56 am

Hi, Teagan. It is up to your teacher or parents exactly what score you need to reach before you are finished practicing. We generally say that 90 is very good and 100 is excellent. If you’re struggling with a particular skill, or feel like a certain SmartScore takes too long to achieve, we recommend that you speak to your teacher or parents so they can help!

The IXL Blog February 5, 2014 at 3:42 pm

That’s great! Keep up the hard work.


Lindsi February 7, 2014 at 6:36 pm

I love your website! I wish I could do more problems for free… But I understand why I can’t! You’ve gotta make money somehow!

But anyways, I know that you have a program for the iPad… Will there ever be one for the iPhone? I’m with my phone much more than my computer, and really that’s the only reason I didn’t buy a subscription.

If you are working on it… I can’t wait!
If not… Please consider it! It would help so many people be able to practice their skills!


The IXL Blog February 10, 2014 at 9:51 am

Hi, Lindsi. We’re so glad to hear that you’re enjoying IXL! Currently, our mobile team is focusing on building our app for Android, so the best way to access IXL on your iPhone is by simply visiting the site with a web browser, like Safari. We will certainly pass your comments about the importance of an iPhone app on to our development team. Thanks for taking the time to let us know your thoughts!

Alex February 26, 2014 at 8:37 am

I DO NOT get this QUESTION on YOUR SITE Blanca’s research team collected buckets of sand and weighed each bucket. The first two buckets weighed 2.28 kilograms and 9.84 kilograms. The third bucket weighed 3.26 kilograms. How much sand did Blanca’s research team weigh in all?


The IXL Blog February 26, 2014 at 9:56 am

Hi, Alex. If you are having trouble with a particular question or skill, we recommend you ask your teacher or parents for help. You can also use the explanations that follow each incorrect answer to help you learn how to answer the question correctly the next time!


Alex March 9, 2014 at 9:23 am

IXL is awesome! Ixl thanks for answering my question.


arjun March 10, 2014 at 4:25 pm

Ixl is the BEST ixl i ever been on and it is the BEST Web.I LOVE IXL so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Steve Austin Samuel December 11, 2014 at 3:10 am

It will be good if u cut the daily practice limit


The IXL Blog December 11, 2014 at 1:08 pm

Hi Steve, thank you for your feedback. We do have paid membership options (more info at http://www.ixl.com/membership/) that allow you to practice as many questions as you want, but we think that even practicing just 20 problems a day for free can be helpful for students, especially if they do it consistently!
