Terms in this set (50)
decimals, fractions and integers. written in the form a/b, where a and b are both integers, but b is not zero, can be located on the number line
numbers that are not fractions, decimals, nor negative numbers, rather counting numbers like 0,1, 2, 3, 4, 5...
a number's distance from zero, always positive
numbers that are the same distance from zero like nine and negative nine
middle value in an ordered data set
a decimal that has a recurring number or pattern of numbers that continues
the amount of space within a figure
the distance around a figure like a border
the amount of 3-D space an object occupies, also its capacity or how much it can hold
to use the opposite operation such as the inverse of multiplication is division
to solve a problem
a letter or symbol that represents one or more numbers
multiplying a number by a group of numbers added together is the same as doing each multiplication separately. 3(2 + 4) = 3×2 + 3×4
two perpendicular number lines that form the x and y-axis used to plot a location of a point
When you multiply a number by its "Multiplicative Inverse" you get 1.
Example: 8 × (1/8) = 1
Two numbers written in a certain order.
Usually written in parentheses like this: (2,3)
Can be used to show the position on a graph, where the "x" (horizontal) value is first, and the "y" (vertical) value is second.
Here the point (2,3) is 2 units along, and 3 units up.
the number that occurs the most in a set of scores, values or numbers
Percent means parts per 100
The symbol is %
Example: 25% means 25 per 100
Part of a whole.
• the bottom number (the denominator) says how many parts the whole is divided into
• the top number (the numerator) says how many parts we have.
In an expression, terms that are all constants or that have the same variable and power.
the answer to a subtraction problem
the answer to a multiplication problem
the answer to an addition problem
the answer to a division problem
the number being divided
the number that does the dividing
a whole number that divides another number equally, for example, four and five are factors of twenty
sequence of products using the same base number multiplied by different numbers. For example, the multiples of nine include: 9; 18; 27; 36...
the number of times a base number is multiplied by itself.
statement that uses an = sign to show that two expressions have the same value.
a number multiplied by a variable in an expression
a value in an expression that does not change
a constant number, a variable, or a grouping of numbers and variables in an expression.
greatest common factor (GCF)
the largest whole number that divides two or more numbers exactly. For example, 6 is the GCF of 24 and 42.
least common multiple (LCM)
the smallest number that is a multiple of two or more numbers. For example 12 is the LCM of 6 and 12.
any number ending in 0, 2, 4, 6, or 8
any number ending in 1, 3, 5, 7, or 9
a value that is far from a majority of values in a data set
the average of a set of numbers found by adding all of the numbers and dividing by the amount of numbers in the set.
a comparison of two or more amounts
two ratios that are equivalent
unit Rate / unit Price
quantity or cost per one item
to replace variable with a number
the total area of the faces or other surfaces of a solid shape.
the four regions of the coordinate plane, formed by the intersection of the x-axes and y-axes.
when the the GCF of a fraction's numerator and denominator is one
in a set of data, the difference between the minimum and maximum values.
in addition and multiplication the order of the numbers does not affect the answer for example 6 times 5 is the same as 5 times 6
the point where the x and y-axis intersect
a two dimensional pattern that can be folded to create a three-dimensional shape
