Getting 72 per cent right means if you had 100 questions you would have got 72 correct. Since there were half as many questions (50), you would have got half as many (36) correct.

How many question can you miss to get a 70 percent on a 186 question test?

70 percent of 186 = 130.2. As you cannot get 0.2 of a question right, we'll round that up to 131. That leaves 55 questions you could get wrong and still score 70 percent - 70.43 to be precise. If the examiner is feeling generous, then they would round up 130 questions correctly answered from it's actual value of 69.89% to 70&, but it might be best not to bank on that.

You got 90 on a test that has exactly 40 questions how many questions did you get wrong?

A test score of "90" represents the percentage of correct questions. Multiply this percentage by the total number of questions and you will have the number of questions correctly answered. Subtract this from the total to find answers wrong. 90% of 40 questions = .90 x 40 = 36 questions right. 40-36 = 4 answers wrong.
