**GEOMETRY **

**Polygons**

Polygons include any shape with 4 or more sides and usually involve calculating an area or perimeter.

**Circles**

ALL circle questions come down to the RADIUS. With the radius, you can solve almost any question. When a circle interacts with another shape, pay careful attention to how the radius factors into that other shape.

**Area** = πr^{2}**circumference** = 2πr**Sector Area:** A fraction of the area**Arc Length:** A fraction of the circumference

**Example:****Area **= 36π**Sector Shaded** (90° is a quarter of the circle) = 9π**Circumference** = 12π**Arc** (90° carves a quarter of the circumference) = 3π

**Multi-Shape**

These shapes will always vary. Nevertheless, they are always combinations of the other GMAT geometry rules, and therefore rarely contains any unique rules. Break this shapes apart by looking for shapes you’re familiar with.

**Note:** Multi-Shape generally show up 1 time on Test Day, can take 3 minutes to solve, and tend to be worth very little (and sometimes nothing). Your best move on these questions is typically to TRIAGE.

**Solids**

Solid questions involve rectangular solids (boxes), cubes (a type of rectangular solid in which all dimensions are the same) and cylinders (cans or tubes). They usually involve volume (what the solid will “hold”) and sometimes surface area.

**Volume** = base x width x height**Surface Area** (Sum of the faces) = Sum of: 2(base x width) 2(width x height) 2(base x height)

**Volume** = πr^{2}h** **

Surface Area (top + bottom + side) = 2πr^{2} + 2πr
