Car Prices - Question II## In additional practice

I'm assuming that the question is asking us to calculate the percent INCREASE.

Percent increase = 100(new - old)/old

= 100(12 - 5)/5

= 100(7)/5

= 140%

## Hello Brent,

I gave my exam today and got a score of 143 in Verbal and 146 in Quants section. Though I have good understanding of Maths, I could not score well in test. I felt the time being less for me as I was thinking a lot for each question. I skipped DI questions in maths as I did not have time to solve them. I could hardly come back to the questions which I skipped. Even though my concepts in Maths are good why I'm I not able to hit a better score? Could you please suggest and assist? Also share your mail ID to give a details about how I felt about the exam.

## How many practice tests did

How many practice tests did you take beforehand?

Keep in mind that the GRE is a test of your math and verbal skills AND it's a test of your test-taking skills. So, 160-level math/verbal skills, combined with 140-level test-taking skills, will likely result in a score that's closer to 140 than to 160.

## Yes, taking practice tests

Yes, taking practice tests will help improve your score. Keep in mind that the GRE is a test of your math and verbal skills, AND it's a test of your test-taking skills. So, 165-level math/verbal skills, combined with 150-level test-taking skills, will likely result in a score that's closer to 150 than to 165.

Also, you can use practice tests to help identify remaining areas of weakness.

With regard to the "not easily unwinding the question," it's important to note that understanding the concepts tested is only one step in doing well on the GRE. You must also become aware of the many different ways the test-makers can challenge your understanding of each individual concept.

I'm having a hard time understanding part a) of this question. How do you choose mortgages out of the rest of the expenses when it doesn't state which expenses in the question are to be calculated, only that 49% of the gross income annual income for the "two categories" are listed. How do we know which category of the expense to calculate?

I believe the person on the Magoosh site used the word "mortgage" to refer to the "Mortgage, Insurance, Property Taxes" bar.
