A Variation of Test It

1. It’s useful on 3 – 4 Test Day questions
2. It’s SIGNIFICANTLY FASTER than the conventional math approach
3. It’s easy to prove what the correct answer is

CLUES that you can use TEST THE ANSWERS
(all 3 MUST occur for you to use this tactic):

1. The 5 answers are numbers
2. The prompt contains at least 1 ﬁxed value/number
3. You are asked to solve for 1 variable

HOW to use TEST THE ANSWERS:

1. Conﬁrm that all 3 clues (above) occur in the question/answers
3. Do the necessary calculations that the question requires

Example:
A 50 inch long piece of paper is cut into two pieces. One piece is 14 inches longer than the other. What is the length, in inches of the longer piece?

(A) 14
(B) 18
(C) 25
(D) 32
(E) 36

Special situations for TEST THE ANSWERS:

1. If the question asks for the “largest” or “smallest” answer, then begin by TESTING THE ANSWER that is largest or smallest and working through the list until you ﬁnd the correct answer.

2. If you’re not sure whether to test a larger or smaller answer, then testing BOTH B and D should help you to establish the pattern behind the question. With those 2 results, even if you don’t have the correct answer, you should be able to determine whether the results are going “up” or “down” and pick the correct answer from the remaining 3 choices (A, C and E).
