**ACT MATH TIP #10: APPROACH EVERY ACT MATH QUESTION WITH THE SAME METHOD**

- Read the question.
- Look at the information provided in the question and the answer choices.
- Solve: Backsolve. Pick Numbers. Use Traditional
**Math**. Strategically Guess. - Check to make sure that you answered the specific question that was asked.

Similarly one may ask, how do you get a 30 on the ACT math?

Because your composite score is the average of your four section scores (English, **Math**, Reading, and Science), you must aim for at least a composite **ACT** score of 29.5—or around **30** on each section.

**pre**-algebra, algebra 1 and 2, and geometry.

In respect to this, how hard is the ACT math section?

The **ACT math section** is 60 minutes long, with 60 **questions** total – so you'll have just one minute to complete each question. You'll definitely have to work quickly if you want to answer each one! Every question is multiple choice, and there is no penalty for guessing.

Let's break down exactly what the **Math section** of the **ACT** consists of.

**Plane Geometry**

- Area of Triangle: area = (1/2) (base) (height)
- Pythagorean Theorem: a²+b²=c²
- Area of Rectangle: area = length x width.
- Area of Parallelogram: area = base x height.
- Area of Circle: π * r²
- Circumference of Circle: circumference = 2π * r.
