1: Introduction

Geometry is always a logical puzzle. The GMAT gives you a tiny piece of information about a figure, and you must logically deduce the information the question wants. Geometry questions require you to follow a series of “if…then” statements, constantly solving the puzzle, piece by piece, to the correct answer.

II. Lines and Angles (Beginner)

The most basic element in geometry is the point:
If we have two points, we can connect them to form a line
When two lines originate from the same point, they form an angle:

The point of intersection is the vertex and the two lines form the sides of the angle. The angle is designated in a number of ways. It is BAC where the middle letter is the vertex, A where A is the vertex, or x where x is located inside the angle.
