1 Overview

GRE general test includes a math-related section: quantitative reasoning. It evaluates the ability to reason quantitatively and to address problems with quantitative methods, or say necessary mathematical skills.The questions are in two sorts:

**Pure mathematical problems:**answer by math knowledge only**Word problems:**answer by modeling problems mathematically

- All numbers used are real numbers.
- All figures are in a plane unless otherwise indicated.
- Geometric figures are not necessarily drawn to scale.
- Coordinate systems are drawn to scale

2 GRE Quantitative Reasoning

GRE Quantitative Reasoning isn't real math test. It doesn't test all high school math skills; for example, it does not include trigonometry, calculus, or other higher-level mathematics. Instead, it just covers four primary math parts: arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and data analysis.Arithmetic Topics include properties and types of integers, arithmetic operations, exponents and roots, and concepts of estimation, percent, absolute value, the number line, and decimal representation.

Example:

Directions: Compare Quantity A and Quantity B, using additional information centered above the two quantities if such information is given, and select one of the following four answer choices:

Quantity A is greater.

Quantity B is greater.

The two quantities are equal.

The relationship cannot be determined from the information given.

A symbol that appears more than once in a question has the same meaning throughout the question.

Quantity A is greater.

Quantity B is greater.

The two quantities are equal.

The relationship cannot be determined from the information given.

A symbol that appears more than once in a question has the same meaning throughout the question.

Quantity A | Quantity B |

Number of prime numbers between 3 and 19 | 5 |

Quantity A is greater. | |

Quantity B is greater. | |

The two quantities are equal. | |

The relationship cannot be determined from the information given. |

Algebra Topics include operations with exponents; algebraic expressions; equations and inequalities; linear and quadratic equations and inequalities; and coordinate geometry, including graphs of functions, intercepts and slopes of lines.

Example:

Directions: Compare Quantity A and Quantity B, using additional information centered above the two quantities if such information is given, and select one of the following four answer choices:

Quantity A is greater.

Quantity B is greater.

The two quantities are equal.

The relationship cannot be determined from the information given.

A symbol that appears more than once in a question has the same meaning throughout the question.

Quantity A is greater.

Quantity B is greater.

The two quantities are equal.

The relationship cannot be determined from the information given.

A symbol that appears more than once in a question has the same meaning throughout the question.

x = - 10^{-2} | |

Quantity A | Quantity B |

x^{3} | x^{2} |

Quantity A is greater. | |

Quantity B is greater. | |

The two quantities are equal. | |

The relationship cannot be determined from the information given. |

Geometry Topics include parallel and perpendicular lines, circles, triangles, quadrilaterals, other polygons, three-dimensional figures, area, perimeter, volume, and angle measurement in degrees. (Not need to construct proofs of geometry.)

Example:

Directions: Compare Quantity A and Quantity B, using additional information centered above the two quantities if such information is given, and select one of the following four answer choices:

Quantity A is greater.

Quantity B is greater.

The two quantities are equal.

The relationship cannot be determined from the information given.

A symbol that appears more than once in a question has the same meaning throughout the question.

Quantity A is greater.

Quantity B is greater.

The two quantities are equal.

The relationship cannot be determined from the information given.

A symbol that appears more than once in a question has the same meaning throughout the question.

Quantity A | Quantity B |

Area of rectangle of perimeter 240. | Area of square of perimeter 240 |

Quantity A is greater. | |

Quantity B is greater. | |

The two quantities are equal. | |

The relationship cannot be determined from the information given. |

Data Analysis Topics include basic descriptive statistics; interpretation of data in tables and graphs; elementary probability; conditional probability; random variables and probability distributions, including normal distributions; and counting methods, such as combinations and permutations.

Example:

Quantity A is greater.

Quantity B is greater.

The two quantities are equal.

The relationship cannot be determined from the information given.

A symbol that appears more than once in a question has the same meaning throughout the question.

A fair coin is tossed three times | |

Quantity A | Quantity B |

The chances of getting 3 heads | The chances of getting no heads |

Quantity A is greater. | |

Quantity B is greater. | |

The two quantities are equal. | |

The relationship cannot be determined from the information given. |

3 GRE Quantitative Reasoning Question Type

GRE Quantitative Reasoning has four common types of questions. A question may be promoted in two ways: either independently as a discrete question or as part of a set of questions, the latter case is usually in Data Interpretation whose all questions are based on the same data source, like tables or graphs.Quantitative Comparison is the primary type in GRE quantitative reasoning and usually ask you select one answer choice from multiple options.

Exercises of quantitative comparisonExample:

Quantity A is greater.

Quantity B is greater.

The two quantities are equal.

The relationship cannot be determined from the information given.

A symbol that appears more than once in a question has the same meaning throughout the question.

A jar of 90 marbles contains marbles of three different solid colors: red, blue and green. More than half the marbles are either red or blue. | |

Quantity A | Quantity B |

The number of blue marbles in the jar | Twice the number of green marbles in the jar |

Quantity A is greater. | |

Quantity B is greater. | |

The two quantities are equal. | |

The relationship cannot be determined without further information. |

Numeric Entry needs you calculate the answer; some Words Problem question also needs you give the numeric answer after modeling.

Exercises of numeric entryExample:

Directions: Enter your answer as an integer or a decimal if there is a single answer box OR as a fraction if there are two separate boxes — one for the numerator and one for the denominator.

One pen costs $0.25 and one marker costs $0.35. At those prices, what is the total cost of 18 pens and 100 markers?

$

Word Problem emphasizes to translate the problem to the mathematical model, you need to calculate the answer, select one or more choices from multiple options.

Exercises of word problemExample:

Directions: Select a single answer choice or multiple choice.

A rectangular airport runway is x feet long and y feet wide. If its length is to be made 100 feet longer, by how many square feet will its area be increased?

xy + 100y | |

xy + 100 | |

100 ly | |

100l | |

100 y |

Data Interpretation usually has a set of questions based on the same data source; the problems are diversity, like calculating the answer, selecting one or more choices from multiple options.

Exercises of data interpretationExample:

Directions: Questions 1 to 3 are based on the following data.

1. If the dollar amount of sales at Store P was $800,000 for 2006, what was the dollar amount of sales at that store for 2008?

$727,200 | |

$792,000 | |

$800,000 | |

$880,000 | |

$968,000 |

2. At Store T, the dollar amount of sales for 2007 was what percent of the dollar amount of sales for 2008?

Give your answer to the nearest 0.1 percent.

Give your answer to the nearest 0.1 percent.

%

3.Based on the information given, which of the following statements must be true?

Indicate all such statements.

Indicate all such statements.

For 2008 the dollar amount of sales at Store R was greater than that at each of the other four stores. | |

The dollar amount of sales at Store S for 2008 was 22 percent less than that for 2006. | |

The dollar amount of sales at Store R for 2008 was more than 17 percent greater than that for 2006. |
