<p>The question is two fold:
1) This is from the PSAT last year:</p>
<p>Points A, B, and X do not all lie on the same line. Point X is 5 units from A and 3 units from B. How many other points in the same plane as A, B, and X are also 5 units from A and 3 units from B ?</p>
(E) More than four</p>
<p>What answer did you choose? And how did you work out from that?</p>
<p>2) I'm not sure about the SAT. But on the PSAT I'm never guaranteed to get a 800. I would do the Hard math first for the first 5 minutes, working from number 17->20, and usually got half of the hard question right. Then I proceed on from the beginning to #16 until 5 minutes before the end. But then I will make silly mistakes, since I have 20 questions to check in 5 mins and I will run out of time doing that. So basically my score will be deducted a lot, and honestly I've never touched a 700 on Math.</p>
<p>Hey 800-er, the question I want to ask you for this part is: How do you think I should pace myself? Please don't just say find your comfortable pace, but also show you way. How do you tackle the hard problems since they are usually out of the pattern with so little time?
