In this module, you'll learn all of the concepts, techniques and strategies needed to answer integer properties questions on the GMAT. In particular, this module covers:

  • Divisibility and divisors
  • Prime numbers
  • Squares of integers
  • Rules of divisors
  • Odd/even numbers
  • Testing cases
  • Greatest common divisor (GCD)
  • Least common multiple (LCM)
  • The GCD-LCM formula
  • Properties of consecutive integers
  • Remainders

Two ways to prepare

Beneath each video lesson in this module, we have a Related Resource box with practice questions that test the concepts covered in the video. With this lesson format, you have two learning options:

  • Watch the video lesson first and then reinforce your learning by answering several related questions, or…
  • Tackle the practice questions first and watch the lesson only if you need help with the concepts the practice questions test

Additional Practice

NOTE: In each of the above video lessons, you’ll find a Related Resources box containing several practice questions that are specifically related to the concepts covered in that lesson (e.g., the lesson on remainders). Conversely, the practice questions below cover a variety of topics under the umbrella of GMAT Integer Properties, and are intended for general reinforcement.

Given this, you may find it beneficial to work on the questions below after you’ve mastered the module content by watching the video lessons and answering concept-specific practice questions from the Related Resources boxes. For more on this learning strategy, visit our course overview page.
