Directions: The following question (5) is an example of a grid-in math problem. On the SAT, you will solve the problem and indicate your answer by darkening the ovals on the special grid provided. Since you do not have this type of answer sheet to practice on, simply write your response. For more information about grid-in questions, please visit sat.collegeboard.com/practice/sat-practice-questions-math/student-produced-response.
