## GMAT Math

The GMAT has two kinds of problems on the test.

Tom gives Sarah 2 of his apples. If Sarah had 4 apples, how many apples does she now have?

A) 4

B) 5

C) 6

D) 7

E) 8

A) Is Fact A alone enough to solve the question if you add it to the word problem?

B) Is Fact B alone enough to solve the question if you add it to the word problem?

C) Do you need BOTH to solve the question because A or B alone is not enough?---> Choose this only if A is wrong and B is wrong but putting them together gives you the information you need.

D) Either A or B would be enough to solve the question. ---> Choose this only if you find A could solve the problem AND B could solve the problem.

E) Neither A nor B nor together will be enough to solve the question.

Tom gives Sarah 2 of his apples. How many apples does Sarah have now?

A) Sarah's apples after were 2 more than Tom's.

B) Sarah had 3 apples before.

A) Is Fact A alone enough to solve the question if you add it to the word problem?

B) Is Fact B alone enough to solve the question if you add it to the word problem?

C) Do you need BOTH to solve the question because A or B alone is not enough?

D) Either A or B would be enough to solve the question.

E) Neither A nor B nor A + B will be enough to solve the question.

**Problem Solving:**The Problem Solving questions should be very familiar to you. They will give you a Word Problem and ask you to find some solution. You will have five different possible answers to choose from (A, B, C, D, E)Tom gives Sarah 2 of his apples. If Sarah had 4 apples, how many apples does she now have?

A) 4

B) 5

C) 6

D) 7

E) 8

*(except questions will generally be a lot more tricky :P)*

**Data Sufficiency:**The Data Sufficiency questions will give you PART of a word problem. They will then ask you a question (e.g. What is X or is X > Y) Immediately following will be two separate pieces of information (Fact A and Fact B). Your job is to decide:A) Is Fact A alone enough to solve the question if you add it to the word problem?

B) Is Fact B alone enough to solve the question if you add it to the word problem?

C) Do you need BOTH to solve the question because A or B alone is not enough?---> Choose this only if A is wrong and B is wrong but putting them together gives you the information you need.

D) Either A or B would be enough to solve the question. ---> Choose this only if you find A could solve the problem AND B could solve the problem.

E) Neither A nor B nor together will be enough to solve the question.

*Options A-E will always be the same for Data Sufficiency. So go ahead and memorize them before the test.*Tom gives Sarah 2 of his apples. How many apples does Sarah have now?
