## GMAT Problem Solving Questions

The **GMAT Problem Solving questions** in the Quantitative section are the **classic multiple choice math questions** expected on a standardized test. About half of the problems are **algebra**-based. The rest are based on **arithmetic and geometry**.

In terms of **arithmetic**, test takers should be prepared to use fractions, decimals and positive and negative integers, and to be able to find averages and percentages.

In **geometry**, test takers should know the total angles in a triangle; how to find the area and perimeter of squares, rectangles and triangles; how to find the area, circumference, radius and diameter of a circle; and a few other basic geometric equations like how to calculate the slope of a line. There are five choices for each answer.
