My basic math skills aren't a problem it's more of the way the gmat thinks. When it expects you to know about using 100 as the total population or to use a hidden number that isn't mentioned in the problem.

How well was I doing before I cancelled my scores?

When I took the test last Thursday I felt pretty good answering the quant section. A probability question popped up and don't know if that can say that I was on my way towards a 700 + or not.

I need a 700+ to get into the school of my choice....

I have not scored well at all on the two test I took for the test. I'm in need of about a three digit integer of a score raise so I will get accepted and get in for the upcoming fall semester. I'm not seeing anything the way I'm suppose to and having problems seeing it.

I hoped did it right but the way I do my probability is easy for me.
I decided to do (5-4)(3-4)(2-4)/(4-2), the reason is because I took the chance of taking 4 from each possible set and then dividing it by the possibility of the total number of possibilities from the actual amount taken.
