## Setup problems

 Whole numbers

Fortunately, for many of the questions on the GED Math test, you don't actually have to do the arithmetic: you just have to know what to do -- how you would "set up" the problem. Here is an example of what you might see on the test:

Margaret sells baked goods at her local Farmer's Market. She sells bread for $2 a loaf, and pies for$3 each. Which expression below represents how much money she will earn if she sells 25 loaves of bread and 22 pies?

1. 25 + 22
2. 2 + 3
3. (2) + 22(25)
4. 2(25) + 3(22)
5. 3(25) + 2(22)
