Integer Properties Strategies

The content provides a comprehensive guide on strategies for tackling integer questions on the GRE, emphasizing the importance of understanding integer properties, prime factorization, and developing mathematical intuition.
  • Ensure you're dealing with integers by looking for explicit statements in the question.
  • Don't forget about zeros, negatives, and the unique properties of prime numbers, including memorizing primes below 60.
  • Understand the interchangeable language of factors and the significance of prime factorization in solving problems.
  • Memorize the perfect squares of the first 15 integers and remember the properties of squaring numbers, including negatives.
  • Develop mathematical intuition and number sense rather than relying solely on procedural knowledge for solving problems.
