Perfect Squares 1-15
1, 4, 9, 16, 25, 36, 49, 64, 81, 100, 121, 144, 169, 196, 225

How to recognize if a # is a multiple of 12
The sum of the digits it a multiple of 3 and the last two digits is a multiple of 4. (i.e 144: 1+4+4=9 which is a multiple of 3, and 44 is a multiple of 4, so 144 is a multiple of 12.)

Surface area of a right circular cylinder
2(pi(r^2))+ 2 pir h

When asked to find the distance between 2 points on a graph use this formula...
Distance formula. Distance= Sqrareroot[((Xa-Xb)^2) + ((Ya-Yb)^2)]

Area of a rectangle
A=l*w

How to recognize a # as a multiple of 9
The sum of the digits is a multiple of 9.

Slope given 2 points
m= (Y1-Y2)/(X1-X2)

Circumference of a Circle
c=2pi r OR d*pi

Volume of a sphere
V=(4/3)pi (r^3)

Area of a circle

How to find the sum of consecutive #s
Sum= (Average of Consecutive #s) * (# of terms in set)

When solving an inequality, flip the sign when you....
divide or multiply both sides by a NEGATIVE number

Perimeter of a rectangle
P= 2L + 2w

How to find the average of consecutive #s
Take the average of the largest and smallest # in the set. (i.e. for the set of consecutive #s 5....172 would be (172+5)/(2)= 88.5)

Area of a trapezoid
A= (1/2)h*(a+b) where a is the length of the bottom base and b is the length of the top base.

Volume of a rectangular box
V=Lw h

How to recognize a # as a multiple of 4
The last 2 digits are a multiple of 4. (i.e 144. 44 is a multiple of 4, so 144 must also be a multiple of 4.)

How to recognize a # as a multiple of 3
The sum of the digits is a multiple of 3

Surface area of a rectangular solid
