Updated March 04, 2010
Problem solving questions are one of the 2 types of GMAT Quantitative problems. These questions include arithmetic, algebra, and geometry problems. Some problems are mathematical calculations; others are “real life” word problems that will require mathematical solutions.
GMAT Arithmetic questions are multiple choice with 5 possible answers.
GMAT Algebra questions always use the real number system. No need for the imaginary number system you learned in advanced algebra class.
GMAT Geometry questions are usually accomponied by a diagram (figure). These diagrams are drawn as accurately as possible, but may be not to scale if indicated.
