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.
