A better strategy
1. Solve it
Can you leverage what you DO know to find what you DON’T know? Can you use the edge of your paper as a ruler to find the length of a side? Sometimes estimating can be even faster than solving directly.
3. Eliminate wrong answers
If you can’t solve it or estimate, can you eliminate any wrong answers? For example, does the answer have to be odd or even in the sequence?
4. Guess A
If you have no idea how to solve it or estimate, and can’t eliminate any wrong answers, choose A, and immediately move on. Don’t waste any time or brain cells trying to tackle a question that you don’t have a good shot of getting right.A better ACT/SAT strategy to tackle math questions: 1. Solve it or 2. Estimate or 3.
