The Quantitative section of the **GMAT** measures the ability to reason quantitatively, solve quantitative problems, and interpret graphic data. Two types of multiple-choice questions are used in the Quantitative section of the GMAT exam-**Problem Solving** and **Data Sufficiency**.

Problem-Solving and Data-Sufficiency questions are intermingled throughout the section. Both types of questions require knowledge of:

– arithmetic

– elementary algebra, and

– commonly known concepts of geometry.

**Problem-Solving questions are designed to measure your ability to:**

– basic mathematical skills,

– understanding of elementary mathematical concepts, and

– the ability to reason quantitatively and solve quantitative problems.

**Data-Sufficiency questions are designed to measure your ability to:**

– analyze a quantitative problem,

– recognize which information is relevant, and

– determine at what point there is sufficient information to solve a problem.
