Word Problem - Grade Level

I am understanding that homeschooling does not have officical school
grade level but I need to know where to start my child since unlike
school I can start where I feel is best for my child. Please answer the
following question to help me out.

At what school grade level would you place a child who correctly
answers the following word problem by calculating in their head in less
than a minute's time?

Stacy had $4.00, her friend April borrowed a portion of Stacy's money.
Stacy now has $2.50 left. How much money does April owe Stacy?

Thank you for respectfully replying,

Jacqueline

Different states have different standards. What state do you live in?
You could go to your state's education site and give one of the grade level tests to your child and see how he/she does.
If you live in TX, here is a list of grade level tests given and the answer keys.

I am not an elementary teacher so I can only approximate where your sample question is. I would guess 2nd or 3rd grade....
