The SAT Math Test: Additional Topics in Math

In this series of articles, we take a closer look at the SAT Math Test.

Math questions on the test fall into different categories called "domains." One of these domains is Additional Topics in Math: questions that ask about geometry and complex numbers.

While the majority of problems on the SAT Math Test fall into the first three domains, the test also includes additional topics in high school math. The additional topics include essential geometric and trigonometric concepts and the Pythagorean theorem.
Just a few examples of problems you will be asked to solve:
  • Problems involving area and volume
  • Right triangle trigonometry
  • Using the complex number system to add, subtract, multiply, and divide with complex numbers
  • Using definitions, properties, and theorems relating to circles
A circle in the x, y-plane has equation left parenthesis, x, minus, 3, right parenthesis, squared, plus, left parenthesis, y, minus, 4, right parenthesis, squared, equals, 36. What is the radius of the circle?

  • Concepts relating to lines, angles, and triangles
In the figure above, line segments start overline, A, F, end overline and start overline, B, E, end overline are perpendicular and intersect at point C. Angle B is congruent to angle E, and the measure of angle A is 55, degrees. What is the measure, in degrees, of angle E ? (Disregard the degree sign when entering your answer.)
  • Prawidłowa odpowiedź to:
  • liczba całkowita, taka jak 6
