GRE Quantitative Reasoning

Quantitative Reasoning in GRE General Test covers arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and data analysis, and its question types are usually quantitative comparison, numeric entry, word problem, and data interpretation. Here we offer hundreds of GRE math exercises grouped by content and question type to practice online.

 Overview and Practice of GRE Quantitative Reasoning
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
The mathematical symbols, terminology, and conventions in the Quantitative Reasoning worksheets are understandable at the high school level. Besides, there are some other assumptions listed in the Quantitative Reasoning section directions:
  • 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
You can use a calculator in the test, but you cannot use your own calculator. In the computer-based GRE test, the calculator is provided on-screen; as for paper-delivered test, the test center will offer a basic calculator. You may get latest and official information of GRE Quantitative Reasoning from Quantitative Reasoning Measure.

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 AQuantity B
The least prime number greater than 24The greatest prime number less than 28
ExerciseQuantity A is greater.

ExerciseQuantity B is greater.

ExerciseThe two quantities are equal.

ExerciseThe relationship cannot be determined from the information given.

Exercises of arithmetic topics

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 AQuantity B

ExerciseQuantity A is greater.

ExerciseQuantity B is greater.

ExerciseThe two quantities are equal.

ExerciseThe relationship cannot be determined from the information given.

Exercises of algebra topics

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.

Exercises of geometry topics

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:
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.

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 comparison

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 AQuantity B
The least prime number greater than 24The greatest prime number less than 28
ExerciseQuantity A is greater.

ExerciseQuantity B is greater.

ExerciseThe two quantities are equal.

ExerciseThe relationship cannot be determined from the information given.



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

Exercises of numeric entry

Example:
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 problem

Example:
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?

Exercisexy + 100y

Exercisexy + 100

Exercise100 ly

Exercise100l

Exercise100 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 interpretation

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

GRE quantitative test


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?

Exercise$727,200

Exercise$792,000

Exercise$800,000

Exercise$880,000

Exercise$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.

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

Indicate all such statements.

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

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

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