# MAT Practice — Analogies Involving Mathematics

At least a few of the 120 analogies (questions) on your MAT will test your knowledge of mathematics and your mathematical skills. MAT mathematics content is limited to basic arithmetic, number theory, descriptive statistics, algebra and geometry.

On this page are five MAT-style practice analogies involving mathematics. Further down the page you'll find an analysis of each question.

Directions: In each of the following questions, you will find three terms in upper-case letters and, in parentheses, four answer options lettered (a), (b), (c) and (d). Select the answer option that best completes the analogy with the three other terms.

1. (a. XXIII, b. XVI, c. LVIII, d. XLII) : XCII :: XVI : LXIV

2. QUADRILATERAL : OCTAGON :: (a. septagon, b. square, c. rhombus, d. triangle) : HEXAGON

3. 22 : SQUARE ROOT OF 64 :: CUBE ROOT OF 64 : (a. 22, b. 23, c. 32, d. 33)

4. (a. 4, b. 8, c. 16, d. 32) : GALLON :: 2 : PINT

5. 1–1 : (a. –40, b. 50, c. 100, d. 1,000) :: 5–1 : 20
