Match each statement with the correct term.
Don't refresh. All questions and answers are randomly picked and ordered every time you load a test.
This is a study tool. The 3 wrong answers for each question are randomly chosen from answers to other questions. So, you might find at times the answers obvious, but you will see it reenforces your understanding as you take the test each time.
1. Combination problems
Here's a good clue: permutation problems usually ask for arrangements. Combination problems usually ask for group's
When the job is not specified you could use the plugging in acne to make the math easier. Or you can take each of the variables and figure out how much the job can be done within one hour to ultimately solve the problem.
For a problem that asks you to choose a number of items to fill specific spots  when each spot is built from a different source  all you have to do is multiply the number of choices for each of the spots. So if you were to have to pick from two app
A type of GMAT problem that requires an equation is the work problem. It is easy to spot because it's always involves two people or factories or machines working at different rates. In this problem the trick is not to think about how long it takes to
2. What is a factorial?
One of the most often used functions on the GMAT consists of a factorial a number followed by an exclamation point. I factorial is the product of a positive integer and all the positive integers less than that number. the only counter intuitive facto
When you are trying to find the probability that a or B will happen you add the probability of each event together
To find the probability of a series of events you must multiply the probabilities of each individual events
Any problem that mentions planes trains cars bicycles distance miles per hour for any other travel related terminology is asking you to write an equation based on the formula rate multiplied time equals distance. This equation can also be written as
3. The probability that a or B will happen
To calculate the probability of at least one thing happening just use this equation: the probability of what you want to happen plus the probability of what you don't want to happen equals the 1.
When you are trying to find the probability that a or B will happen you add the probability of each event together
Six horses are running in a race. How many different groups of horses could make up the first three finishers. To find the number of combinations first find the number of permutations if six horses run the race and we are interested in the top three
A function is basically a set of directions. To solve the function problem on the GMAT you essentially take the set of instructions and apply it to whatever numbers you are given
4. Permutations: single source  order matters
One of the most often used functions on the GMAT consists of a factorial a number followed by an exclamation point. I factorial is the product of a positive integer and all the positive integers less than that number. the only counter intuitive facto
For a problem that asks you to choose from the same source to fill specific spots  all you have to do is simply multiply the number of choices for each of the spots but the number of choices keeps getting smaller. For example three bath bowl teams p
To find all the possible permutations of the top 3/7 teams simply multiply the number of combinations for each spot in the standings. Comedy teams are possibilities for the firstplace slot? If you said seven you're right how about the second slot? W

5. Finding the probability of something happening at least once
6. How to crack rate multiplied by time equals distance
A function is basically a set of directions. To solve the function problem on the GMAT you essentially take the set of instructions and apply it to whatever numbers you are given
As soon as you see the word strove for travel make a little chart for yourself. Include the variables rate time distance and who is being analyzed.
To find the probability of a series of events you must multiply the probabilities of each individual events
For a problem that asks you to choose from the same source to fill specific spots  all you have to do is simply multiply the number of choices for each of the spots but the number of choices keeps getting smaller. For example three bath bowl teams p
7. Permutations: single source  order matters but only for a selection
8. The probability that both a and B will both happen
For a problem that asks you to choose from the same source to fill specific spots  all you have to do is simply multiply the number of choices for each of the spots but the number of choices keeps getting smaller. For example three bath bowl teams p
To figure out the probability that something won't happen simply figure out the probability that it will happen and then subtract that fraction from the 1.

9. What is the basic probability formula?
The basic probability formula equals the number of outcomes you want divided by the total number of possible outcomes. For example if you rolled a six sided dice one time what is the probability that it would land with either of the two side facing u
