### SAT Multiple-Choice Math Questions

Your standard run-of-the-mill multiple-choice questions are one of two types you'll see on the SAT Math section (the other type is the SAT Math Grid-In), but although you've seen the format before, the SAT math strategies for solving these may be new. So check them out!

**Question Set-Up**

Each of the 44 questions in this section offers you a problem that you must solve, and five answer choices below it.

**Skills Tested**

These are designed to test your ability to reason mathematically, to understand basic math terminology, and to recall basic mathematic formulas and principles – i.e. factoring polynomials, determining slope, working with sets and sequences, etc. Brush up on your Geometry, Statistics, Algebra and the like.

**Answer These Questions First**

Because these math questions actually have choices, as opposed to the SAT Math grid-in questions, these are the easiest ones to answer and require less time. So, answer them first.

**The Questions Get More Difficult As You Proceed**

As you answer them in order, which you will if you’re test-savvy, they will become increasingly more difficult. So it’s good to get your feet wet on the first ones, because you’ll have an easier time getting them right. (Getting them right = higher SAT score.)

### SAT Math Multiple-Choice Example

*A 19-liter mixture consists by volume of 1 part juice to 18 parts water. If x liters of juice and y liters of water are added to this mixture to make a 54-liter mixture consisting by volume of 1 part juice to 2 parts water, what is the value of x ?*

(A) 17

(B) 18

(C) 27

(D) 35

(E) 36

(A) 17 is the correct answer.
