Hi all,

I created a template that gather all the geometry formulas that appear on the GMAT (if i missed any please tell!). I use it every week in order to ensure that I remember all of them.

I think it could be helpful for some of you so I decided to share.

The TEMPLATE is the one for practice.

Good luck!

Sorry, but on page 2 there is a misprint:
in Arc Measure (Intersecting Secants/Tangents) It must be the difference between arcs measures of AD and BD.

Now, what does this mean:

Area of Isosceles Triangle = 1/2[(leg)^2]
(from Geometry Formulas.pdf)

I haven't been able to give myself any convincing explanation of this formula...

Well that's because it's not true.

It should be area of isosceles right triangle = 1/2*(leg)^2, simply because area of right triangle equals to 1/2*leg1*leg2, and since in isosceles right triangle leg1=leg2, then this formula becomes area=1/2*(leg)^2.

Thanks for this memory sheet, very useful!

However I believe some formulas, details might be added...

Angles of a polygons (n-2)* 180, angles inscribed in a circle (compared to central angle there a section about it in the VERITAS Prep book)

Also I did not see two real IMPORTANT triangles sides ratio:

3:4:5
5:12:13

Good you put the formula for the equilateral triangle (which is not given in the OG and allow you to gain so much time)

I found formula I did not know! Thank you for sharing

I'd also add one more element to Coordinate geometry. The coordinates of a point P on line joining two points A(x1,y1) and B(x2,y2) such that PA:PB is in the ration m:n would be ((mx2+nx1)/(m+n),(my2+ny1)/(m+n)).

In the formula sheet.... Arc Measure (Intersecting Secants/Tangents) [2] formula shouldn't it be angle C = AD-BD/2 since C is external point.
