Welcome back to our fifth and final article on GMAT circles. Last time we explored the possibilities of treating a circle’s radius as the hypotenuse of a right triangle. This time we will introduce you to the concept of cylinders and spheres — two 3-dimensional...

Welcome back to our fourth article on GMAT circles. Last time we considered inscribed angles and learned that where there is a 90-degree inscribed angle, there is a hypotenuse that is also a diameter of the circle. This time we will explore a class of problems where...

Welcome back to our third article on GMAT circles. In the second article, we explored central angles, sectors, and arcs. This time we will introduce another kind of angle: the inscribed angle. An inscribed angle is an angle drawn by using line segments to connect one...

Welcome back to our series on GMAT circles. In the first article, we introduced the properties of radius/diameter, circumference, and area, discussing the relationships between all of these. This time we will introduce something called a central angle, which creates...

Circles on the GMAT function like any other GMAT quant topic: the list of “knowledge bits” you need is short, but the questions creatively combine and/or disguise these few “knowledge bits” to create complex problems. In this first article, we will discuss the most...

GMAT 3D Geometry Problem In this problem we’re going to take a look at 3D objects and in particular a special problem type on the GMAT that measures the longest distance within a three-dimensional object. Typically, they give you rectangular solids, but they...
