Math Cheat Sheet
Strategies:
Don’t work in your head – use scratch paper
Read a math question in chunks rather than straight through
– make notes or draw a picture as you read to help illustrate
the problem
Circle the actual question – make sure you note if there is a
not” in it, or if it asking for the opposite of what you have to
solve for.
Glance at the answer choices for clues – if they are
infractions, work in fractions; if they are in decimals, work in
decimals
If you are stumped, try a backdoor approach – try to plug in
the answer choices
Approximate when appropriate – if the question is asking for
45% of a number, look for an answer that is close to half of
the number
Skip hard questions – return to them later (solve if possible,
or just guess)
Percentages:
Remember this formula, and usually, you’ll be able to plug in
the numbers and solve for X
______ % of __________ = _____________
Here’s another way to remember:
___Part (is) = %___
Whole (of) 100
