# Formulas provided on the SAT

Hello! I'm preparing for the SAT and I heard that some formulas are actually given during the exam. Can anyone provide a list of formulas that will be provided on test day, and which ones I need to memorize myself? Thanks in advance!

Hey there! It's true that the SAT math section does provide some key formulas for you during the test. They'll be available in the test booklet on the reference sheet, so you don't have to worry about memorizing them all yourself. Some of these provided formulas include:

1. Area of a circle: A = πr²

2. Circumference of a circle: C = 2πr

3. Area of a rectangle: A = lw

4. Area of a triangle: A = 1/2bh

5. Pythagorean Theorem: a² + b² = c²

While these formulas are provided, it's a great idea to become familiar with them beforehand, so you know exactly where to find them when needed. As for other formulas, you should generally know quadratic formula, slope-intercept form of a linear equation (y = mx + b), and distance formula. There might be some other minor ones depending on the specific problems encountered, but focusing on those should be a solid start. Best of luck with your SAT preparation!
