GMAT Math Problem Solving

Problem solving questions are standard 5-choice multiple choice questions.

How to approach problem solving questions

Practice your math problem solving skills with our 10 tests. You shouldn't need more than three lines of working for any problem. Redraw geometry figures on your scratch pad to include the information in the question.

Each test has ten questions and should take 12 minutes. Reading the explanations to the questions you get wrong will strengthen your fundamentals and remind you of important multiple choice techniques such as picking numbers and back solving.

Initially don't worry too much about the time until you have a feel for the type of questions. But, by the time you have done two or three tests you should start getting tough about the time you take.


Solve each problem and then click on the correct answer choice. Have a sheet of paper ready for any rough work.
