30 Questions

All numbcrs uscdarc real numbers.


Position of points, angJes, regioos,etc. c:rn be assumedto bc in the order sbown; and angle measures can be assurnedto bc positive, Lincs showDas straight can bc assumcd to b straiglt. Figures can be assumcdto lie in a plane unlcss otherwise indicatcd. Figures tbat accompany qucstions are intcnded to provide informatioa uscfut in answcring the questions- Hoscver, unlessa notc atates that a figure is drawn to scete,you should solvc thesc-problims NOT by cstimating sizesby sight or by mcasuremcnt, but by using your lnowlcdge of matlrcmatics (see Examplc 2 bclow).

Directions: Each of thc QuesJignsl-15 consists of two quantities, onc-in Column A aqd oo. in Column B- you are to compare thc two quantitiesand choosc A B C D Note: Common IIl6EIiion: if if if if thc quantity ia Column A is greater; thc quantity in Column B is greater; thc two quantities are equal; thc relationship cannot be derermined from the information girrcn.

Since there areonly four choiccs, NEVER MARK (E).


In a question, information conccrning onc or both of the quantities to be compa.redis centered above the two columns.A symbol that appearsin both columns represents the samc thing in Column A as it does in Column B. Column A

Figures tbat accompany qucstions are intcnded to provide informatioa uscfut in answcring the questions- Hoscver, unlessa notc atates that a figure is drawn to scete,you should solvc thesc-problims NOT by cstimating sizesby sight or by mcasuremcnt, but by using your lnowlcdge of matlrcmatics (see Examplc 2 bclow).

Figures: All numben usedare real numbers. Position of points, angles,regions, etc. c;rn bc assumed to bc in the order shom; and angle measures can be assumed to be positive. Lines shown as straight can be assumedto bc straight. Figurescan be asiumed to lie in a plane unlessorhcrwisc indicated. Figurcsthat accomPanyquestionsare intendedto provide information uscful in answeringthe questions' However,unlessa note statesthat a figure is drawnto scale,you should solve theseproblems Nor by estimatingsizesby sight or by meaiurement, but by using your knowledgeof mathematics(see Example 2 bclow). Each qf the Ques-tions l-.15. consistsof two quandties,one in column A and one in column 3T!!tf ""st B. you are to compare rhe two quantiriEilEFhoose A B C D Note: Common if the quantity in Column A is greareq if the quantiry in Column B is lrearer; if the two quantitiesare equal; if the rerationshipcannot be determined from the information given.

Position of points, angles,regions,etc. can be assumed to be in the order showa; and angle measures can be assumedto be positive. Lines shown as straight can be assumcdto be straight. Figures can bc as.sumed to lie in a planc unlessotherwisc indicated. Figurcs_that accomPanyquestionsare intendedto provide information useful in answeringthe questions. However, unlessa note statcsthat a figure is drawn ro scale,you should solve theselroblcms NoT by estimatingsizcsby sight or by measurement, but by using your knowledgeof mathematics(see Example 2 bclow).

Numbcn: FiBurcs:

All numbcrs uscd arc rcal numbers. Position of points, angles,regons, etc. een bc assumedto bc in the ordcr shown; and angle measures cen bc assumedto be positive. Lines shown as straight can be assumed to be straight. Figurcs can be assumedto lic in a planc unlessotherwise indicated. Figures-thataccompanyquestionsare intendedto provide information useful in answering the questlons. However, unlessa note statesthat a figure is drawn to scate,you should solve theselroblems NOT by estimatingsizcsby sightor by measurement, but by using your knowledge of mat'hematics (see Example 2 below).

SECTION 2 Trme-30 minutes 30 Questions

Numbers:
Figures:

All numbers usedarc real numbers Position of points, angles, regions,etc. can be assumedto be in rhc order shown;and angle measures can be assumed to be positive. Lines shown as straightcan be assumedto be straight. Figures can be assumed to lie in a phne unlessotherwiseindicated. Figures that accompany questjonsare intended to provide information usefulin answeringthe questions. However,unless a note'states that a figure is drawn to scale,you should solve these"prolt.-, NOT by estimatingsizesby sight or by measurement, but by using your knowledgeof mat'tre*atics (see Example 2 below).

Diryctions: Each of the Questions l-15 consists of two quantities, one in Column A and one in Column B. you are to comparethe two quantities and choose A B C D Note: if if if if the quantityin Column A is grearer; tbe quanriryin Column B is greater; thc two quantities are equal; the relationshipcannot be determinedfrom the information givcn.

SECTION 6 Time-3O minutes 30 Questions

Numbers:
Figures:

All numbersusedare real numbcrs. Position of points, angles,regions,etc. can be assumedto be in the order shown; and angle measures can be assumcd to be positive. Lincs shownas straightcan bc assumed to be straight. Figurescan be assumed to lie in a plane unlessotherwiseindicated. Figures_that accompany questionsare intended to provide information usefulin answering the questions. However,unlessa note.statcsthat a figure is drawn to scale,you should solve these-probt.1n, NoT by estimating sizes by sightor by measurement, but by usingyour knowledge of matiremarics (see Example2 below).

Directions: Each of the Questions l-15 consists of two quantities, one in Column A and one in Column B. you are to comparethe two quandties and choose A B C D Note: Common if if if if tbe quantityin Column A is greater; thc quantityin Column B is greater; the two quantities are equal; the reiationship cannot be determined ffom the informationgiven.

Sincethereare only four choices, NEVER MARK (E).

Numbcn: FiBurcs:

All numbcrs uscd arc rcal numbers. Position of points, angles,regons, etc. een bc assumedto bc in the ordcr shown; and angle measures cen bc assumedto be positive. Lines shown as straight can be assumed to be straight. Figurcs can be assumedto lic in a planc unlessotherwise indicated. Figures-thataccompanyquestionsare intendedto provide information useful in answering the questlons. However, unlessa note statesthat a figure is drawn to scate,you should solve theselroblems NOT by estimatingsizcsby sightor by measurement, but by using your knowledge of mat'hematics (see Example 2 below).

Figures:

All numbers usedarc real numbers Position of points, angles, regions,etc. can be assumedto be in rhc order shown;and angle measures can be assumed to be positive. Lines shown as straightcan be assumedto be straight. Figures can be assumed to lie in a phne unlessotherwiseindicated. Figures that accompany questjonsare intended to provide information usefulin answeringthe questions. However,unless a note'states that a figure is drawn to scale,you should solve these"prolt.-, NOT by estimatingsizesby sight or by measurement, but by using your knowledgeof mat'tre*atics (see Example 2 below).

Numbers:
Figures:

All numbersusedare real numbcrs. Position of points, angles,regions,etc. can be assumedto be in the order shown; and angle measures can be assumcd to be positive. Lincs shownas straightcan bc assumed to be straight. Figurescan be assumed to lie in a plane unlessotherwiseindicated. Figures_that accompany questionsare intended to provide information usefulin answering the questions. However,unlessa note.statcsthat a figure is drawn to scale,you should solve these-probt.1n, NoT by estimating sizes by sightor by measurement, but by usingyour knowledge of matiremarics (see Example2 below).

Directions: Each of the Questions l-15 consists of two quantities, one in Column A and one in Column B. you are to comparethe two quandties and choose A B C D Note: Common if if if if tbe quantityin Column A is greater; thc quantityin Column B is greater; the two quantities are equal; the reiationship cannot be determined ffom the informationgiven.
