## Abstract

The objectives of this study are: to examine how mathematical literacy skills, critical thinking skills, and mathematical communication skills simultaneously and partially influence the ability to solve mathematical problems. A quantitative research approach was used in this study. The study was conducted in SMPS Bina Taruna Medan, SMPN 20 Medan, and SMPN 32 Medan. The subjects of 90 students in her class VII-1 from three schools. The sampling method in this study was random sampling technique. The instrument used consists of test literacy mathematical ability, critical thinking ability, mathematical communication ability, and mathematical problem solving ability. Data analysis was performed using multiple regression analysis. Mathematics literacy, critical thinking, and mathematical communication skills simultaneously influence 90.1% of mathematical problem-solving ability, while 9.9% is determined by other variables.
