Hi Guys,

perhaps most of the time you have wondered how to post here on the board a quant question for which you are puzzled and need help. This is perfectly fine, and importantly we are here to help you. However, GRE quant question has a particular format that could confuse you the way you post, correctly, and at the same time is somewhat weird how they look like.

As such, I am going to guide you throughout a 360° way to create the perfect post under all its aspects. Following a sort of strategy, you going to have it even to turn on the light, I will show you step by step how to use tags and bb-code in a way as much simple as possible.

Premise



    1) Read the rules for posting in quant section, regardless of the sub-forum quant forum you need to spoil. Here is the post to read very carefully and is mandatory http://greprepclub.com/forum/rules-for- ... -1083.html.

    2) It is crucial to point out that all such rules are important to keep the board clean and efficient, BUT if we really wanna say the basic rules, you must follow :
    • Using the first sentence of the same question OR a phrase that well sum up the entire question and its key concepts
    • At least 3 (Three) tags to identify properly the question you are posting : an example could be the level of difficulty of the question, the area of content(algebra, word problem, and so forth), and the SOURCE.
    • The Official answer and possible the Official Explanation.



In this tutorial, we are going to cover every aspect of three crucial aspects




How to Posting a question in quant section


As you know, we do have five types of quant questions during the GRE exam.




Quantitative Comparison


x is an integer

Quantity A
Quantity B
\(\frac{1}{100^x}\)
\(\frac{1}{99^x}\)


Quantity A is greater.
Quantity B is greater.
The two quantities are equal.
The relationship cannot be determined from the information given.

Then, the code behind the question is quite simple.

Code:
[quantity]([m][fraction]1/100^x[/fraction][/m])([m][fraction]1/99^x[/fraction][/m])[/quantity]


As you can see inside the round parenthesis you can use the code to create a fraction, root and so forth. Notice, also, that the two parentheses must be touched. NO space in between the first one and the second


Put it in simple terms: When you are going to create a new Quantitative Comparison Question you only need two set up the two quantities to push the tag button.
The insert your values INSIDE the parenthesis

Attachment:

#GREprepclub How to use the tag in a question.jpg [ 31.57 KiB | Viewed 14916 times ]

Quote:
[quantity]( quantity A goes here )( quantity B goes here)[/quantity]




Multiple-choice Questions — Select One Answer Choice


The question looks like this

Quote:
If \(z=3^4\), then \(( 3^z)^z\)

A. \(3^{16}\)

B. \(3^{81}\)

C. \(3^{324}\)

D. \(3^{405}\)

E. \(3^{6,561}\)


Creating a question under this sub-forum is quite easy: the format is simple, and you should choose only one answer choice. Pretty straightforward.



Multiple-choice Questions — Select One or More Answer Choices


It is pretty much the same the previous one with the only twist that you must choose one or more answer choices, even all the ballpark

The question looks like this

Quote:
Which of the following could be the units digit of \(57^n\), where n is a positive integer?

Indicate all such digits.

 0

 1

 2

 3

 4

 5

 6

 7

 8

 9




Numeric Entry Question


You will find a square in which you must insert some sort of datum: a number, a fraction, and so forth. Here is how the question formatted should look like

If \(| x + 1 | \leq 5\) and \(|y — 1| \leq 5\), what is the least possible value of the product \(xy\) ?

Enter your value


Use the spoiler tag to enter the OA

Attachment:
#GREprepclub Spoiler tag.jpg
#GREprepclub Spoiler tag.jpg [ 31.69 KiB | Viewed 14885 times ]


The result will be the following. Insert your value between the brackets [ ]

Code:
[spoiler=OA][m]-36[/m][/spoiler]




Data Interpretation Sets


The question looks like this shot below

Attachment:
#GREprepclub data Interpretation.jpg
#GREprepclub data Interpretation.jpg [ 57.13 KiB | Viewed 14904 times ]


when you are going to create a new one post you can upload the image related to the question, here on the board, directly.

Attachment:
#GREprepclub Upload attachment.jpg
#GREprepclub Upload attachment.jpg [ 23.16 KiB | Viewed 14864 times ]


Of course, then at the bottom, you will post the question related to the graph. remember: the following question could be a Problem Solving (one or more answer choices) or a Numeri Entry question.

How to use and to set up the timer [#permalink] New post 29 Mar 2019, 02:38
Expert's post
How to use the timer and to set up



After we have explained how to post every GRE question type in the right manner, it is the time to understand how the timer usage and how to set up it, in order to be useful for the student and the entire community. I.e. to the other students who want to practice a question on the board under a time constraint.

The GREPrepclub team's work is student-centered. We work hard on a daily basis to provide to the students not only features that are user-friendly but also every possible assistance he/she could imagine to achieve the best score as fast as the student can.
Broadly speaking, we do have two timer case scenarios.

One one hand the usage of the timer, and on the other extreme how to set up it when you do create a new quant question.
Depending on the question you are going to post on the board: QCQ, PS (one or multiple answer choices), NE, or DI the timer itself shows up differently. We have # three possible case scenarios.



# First scenario - Quantitative Comparison Question

The quantitative comparison questions as you do know have always four answer choices

A)The quantity in Column A is greater.
B)The quantity in Column B is greater.
C)The two quantities are equal.
D)The relationship cannot be determined from the information given.

The time once set-up looks like the following

Attachment:
#GREquantitative comparison question timer.jpg
#GREquantitative comparison question timer.jpg [ 68.65 KiB | Viewed 14765 times ]


How to set the timer is pretty simple. Suppose the answer is B

Attachment:
#GRE QCQ 2.jpg
#GRE QCQ 2.jpg [ 46.68 KiB | Viewed 14750 times ]


On the right side (red ) you have to flag the OA; in the middle ( blue ) the other answer choices which are wrong and on the left ( green ) the flags must be blank. The most common mistake that the students do is to mark only and solely the right answer choice, leaving the rest of the choice in the green zone and blank in the blue (the middle). The result, in this case, looks like the following

Attachment:
#GRE QCQ 3.jpg
#GRE QCQ 3.jpg [ 55.61 KiB | Viewed 14751 times ]


This is the worst scenario: not only the OA is suddenly revealed without even make a bare attempt of the question itself but also it would vanish your personal workbook because it will not show up the question you pick wrong, practicing. As I mentioned earlier this article, we put a lot of effort to create a future such as a timer. The reason, aside from the bulky work behind it to create, why the time is so crucial is because attempting a question not using the timer or under NOT a time constraint is a complete failure. The GRE test is a tough test just because the questions are tricky under time condition. Every question during the exam before or after could be solved if we would have one hour to solve it. Therefore, practice always with the timer runs on.



# Second scenario - Problem Solving (one answer choice)

Problem Solving question with five answer choices

Attachment:
#GREPrepclub timer.jpg
#GREPrepclub timer.jpg [ 64.12 KiB | Viewed 14768 times ]

As you can see, the timer has five possible answers and only ONE is correct.


In this example, supposing the OA is D you have to set up the time, which is always at the bottom of the frame in which you are going to type or create a question, in the following manner

Attachment:
#GREprepclub timer problem solving one answer choice.jpg
#GREprepclub timer problem solving one answer choice.jpg [ 101.29 KiB | Viewed 14759 times ]



# Second scenario - Problem Solving (one or more answer choices)

In case you do have a Problem Solving multiple choices and multiple answer choices are correct, the timers look like the following

Attachment:
#GREPrepclub timer more choices.jpg
#GREPrepclub timer more choices.jpg [ 75.55 KiB | Viewed 14777 times ]


Attachment:
#GRE problem solving multiple answers.jpg
#GRE problem solving multiple answers.jpg [ 97.97 KiB | Viewed 14751 times ]





# Second scenario - Numeri Entry

In case of a numeric answer question, the timer set-up boils down to whether I pick it right or wrong: YES or NO. This is because I have to insert the value of my answer into the spoiler tag (see above when I explain how to post a NE question).

Attachment:
#GREPrepclub timer numeric entry.jpg
#GREPrepclub timer numeric entry.jpg [ 63.69 KiB | Viewed 14773 times ]


Attachment:
#GRE Numeric Entry.jpg
#GRE Numeric Entry.jpg [ 108.58 KiB | Viewed 14752 times ]




# Third scenario - Data Interpretation

A DI question could be a Problem Solving ( one or multiple answer choices) question, a Numeric Entry Question. Never a Quantitative Comparison Question. So refer above how to configure the timer.

Writing Mathematical Formulas on the Forum



I think that everybody will agree that \({(\sqrt{9+\sqrt{80}}+\sqrt{9-\sqrt{80}})^2}\) is much easier to understand than (sqr root of (9 +sqr root of 80)+sqr root of (9 - sqr root 80))^2.

So, in order to help you with the questions you post more efficiently please use the following guide to write math formulas.

In most cases you'll just need to do 2-3 simple steps:

Simple Formulas


How to make 7x^2+5(x+3)>1 to look like \(7x^2+5(x+3)>1\)
Step 1: Mark 7x^2+5(x+3)>1;
Step 2: Press m button.


Fractions


How to make (x+3)/(x+5)>0 to look like \(\frac{x+3}{x+5}>0\):
Step 1: Mark the fraction (x+3)/(x+5);
Step 2: Press fraction button;
Step 3: Now, mark the whole expression and press m button.


Square roots


How to make (x+5)^(1/2)<17^(1/2) to look like \(\sqrt{x+5}<\sqrt{17}\):
Step 1: Mark x+5 and press square_root button, then mark 17 and press square_root button again;
Step 2: Now, mark the whole expression and press m button.


Other Useful Symbols



Another Way of Writing Fractions:
How to make (a+b)/c to look like \(\frac{a+b}{c}\)
Step 1: Write \frac{a+b}{c}, (note that numerator and denominator must be enclosed in { } and you must write out \frac to tell the system that it is a fraction);
Step 2. Mark the whole expression and press m button.

Exponents
How to make x^12 to look like \(x^{12}\)
Step 1: Write x^{12}, (note that multi-digit powers must be enclosed in { });
Step 2. Mark the whole expression and press m button.

Roots
How to make 3rd root of x^2 to look like \(\sqrt[3]{x^2}\)
Step 1: Write \sqrt[3]{x^2}, (note that 3 must be enclosed in [ ] and 2 must be enclosed in { });
Step 2. Highlight the whole expression and press m button.

Inequalities
\(x\approx{3}\): write x\approx{3} and press m button (note that 3 must be enclosed in { }).
\(x\leq5\): write x\leq{5} and press m button.
\(x\geq3\): write x\geq{3} and press m button.
\(x\neq0\): write x\neq{0} and press m button.

Subscript
\(x_1\): write x_1 and press m button. If a subscript is more than one-digit number, for example \(x_{15}\) then write x_{15} and press m button (note that such kind of subscripts must be enclosed in { }).

Geometry
\(\pi\): write \pi and press m button;
\(\angle\): write \angle and press m button;
\(90^{\circ}\): write 90^{\circ} and press m button;
\(\alpha\): write \alpha and press m button;
\(\triangle\): write \triangle and press m button.
