### Basic Arithmetic - Chapter Objectives

The GED exam is a standardized test used to grant high school equivalency diplomas to adult learners who have demonstrated that they have the academic skills needed to succeed on the job or in a postsecondary education program. The test consists of four sections, including a mathematical reasoning portion assessing your quantitative and algebraic problem-solving skills. It's in this 90-minute section where you'll benefit from a knowledge of basic arithmetic functions as well as the ability to reorder operations, determine the least common multiple and read a graph - all of which are covered in this chapter's video lessons and transcripts.
