# Revised GRE Math Practice Questions

Maybe you’ve been prepping for months or maybe this is your first foray on-line to see what this GRE thing is all about. Regardless, you need to do well on Quant, so you want to have a sense of where on the Revised GRE scale of 130 – 170 you are scoring. Below are some practice questions that will help you both sharpen your skills and determine at what level you are scoring. So if you struggle with the 165 – 170 problem, don’t despair.

Finally, these five practice questions cover the range of concepts you can expect to see. So if you answered an easier question incorrectly, it is not that you are necessarily at the 150 mark. Perhaps you are struggling with a certain area. No worries – click above each question to access even more practice problems dealing with a certain concept. Good luck!

3. 5
4. D
5. E

## Takeaway

With any practice problems the key is trying to figure out why you answered the questions incorrectly. At first this process can be frustrating. But remember, by forcing yourself to figure out the answer, instead of turning to an explanation, you will understand the problem at a deeper level and so be less likely to miss a similar problem in the future.

If you are still unsure about the answers to the problems above, let me know and I will provide an explanation. For hundreds of Revised GRE practice problems, both math and verbal, try out Magoosh today. Not only do we offer text explanations we also provide excellent video explanations.

yeah , priya demanded right thing i think! we need at least a brief explanation.

• Margarette December 28, 2011 at 10:23 am #

We’ll have the explanations up next week, so keep an eye out for a new follow-up post coming soon!

It would be great if we can get explanation for all of the question ans.

1. in place of x put all the values||x-2|-2|
for x= 5
||-5-2|-2|=|7-2|=5
similarly for x=9

||9-2|-2|=|7-2|=5

2.
Consider if – a=2^1/3, and let b=2^1/3 for case a=b

(a^2)*(b)=2
but none of the option except (E) is suitable.
hope this would suffice

3. prime no. are 2,3,5,7,11,13,17…..
2*3*5=30
2*3*7=42
2*3*11=66
2*3*13=78
2*3*17=greater then 100
2*5*7=70
2*5*11=greater than 100

ans=5

4. couldn’t understand the question

5.
let length of square = ‘L’
therefore area of square=L^2
and from question L^2=X———–1

let ‘w’ be the width of path
{bit of analyzing is required} area of path = 4(L+w)(w)=X ———–2

solve the two equ.

(a^2)*(b)=2
but none of the option except (E) is suitable.
hope this would suffice .
