## What’s On the GRE Quantitative Reasoning Test?

The Quantitative Reasoning questions are also grouped into two sections. Each section has a different number of questions and a different time limit:

The good news is that you are allowed to use an on-screen calculator for the entirety of the Quantitative Reasoning section! You likely won’t need it for most of the questions, but rest assured that it’s there if you do want to use it.

There are three different question types to test your ability to solve problems dealing with number properties and geometric figures.

### Quantitative Comparison

These questions will present you with two quantities, and you’ll be asked to determine which quantity is greater. In some cases, the quantities will be equal.

Here’s an example question:

- $0<y<1$
**Quantity A**

${y}^{2}$**Quantity B**

$y$

- Quantity A is greater.
- Quantity B is greater.
- The two quantities are equal.
- The relationship cannot be determined from the information given.

The correct answer in this case is B. When a positive number less than 1 is squared, the result is smaller than the original number. For example if $y$ = 0.5 then ${y}^{2}$ = 0.25.

### Multiple-Choice

These are your standard multiple-choice questions. You’ll be given a question and a list of five answer choices, only one of which is the correct answer.

Here’s an example question:

- A rectangle has a length of 12 and a width of 5. What is the length of its diagonal?

- 10
- 12
- 13
- 15
- 17

The correct answer in this case is C. The diagonal of a rectangle divides it into two right-angled triangles. You can use the Pythagorean theorem (${a}^{2}+{b}^{2}={c}^{2}$) to find the answer, making $a$ = 12 and $b$ = 5:

$144+25={c}^{2}$

$169={c}^{2}$

$c=\sqrt{169}=13$

### Numeric Entry

For these questions, you’ll have to input your answer into one or more boxes. If your answer is a decimal or an integer, it goes into a single box. If your answer is a fraction, the numerator goes in one box and the denominator in another box.

Here’s an example question:

- A bag contains 5 red marbles, 3 blue marbles, and 2 green marbles. What is the probability of randomly selecting a blue marble?

The correct answer in this case is $\frac{3}{10}$, which means you would type 3 into the top box and 10 into the bottom box. Since there are 10 total marbles and 3 blue marbles, you can use $\frac{\text{Favorable outcomes}}{\text{Total possible outcomes}}$ to get the correct answer: $\frac{3}{10}$.
