### GRE Quantitative Reasoning Objectives

The GRE is a test used to determine how prepared a student is for the rigors of a graduate academic program. The quantitative reasoning portion of the exam makes up a little more than a third of the test, and it includes multiple-choice and open-ended questions. Our instructional videos on plane geometry teach you about the geometric principles you'll encounter on this section of the GRE. Some of the topics covered in the plane geometry lessons include:

• Identifying various types of angles
• Calculating the perimeter of rectangles and triangles
• Deriving the circumference of a circle
• Determining a shape's area
• Finding the volume of different shapes
• Using visualization to solve geometry problems
• Recognizing and utilizing similar triangles
• Understanding the Pythagorean Theorem

In the GRE's quantitative reasoning section, you'll find multiple-choice questions that may have a single answer or more than one correct response. There are also questions that require the calculation and provision of a numerical answer. There are also multiple-choice problems that ask you to examine two given quantities and then select the answer that describes the relationship between their respective values.
