adding numbers with signs

if the signs are the same (-,-) or (+,+) add the 2 numbers and label with the sign

7 + 3 = 10

-5 + (-3) = -8

If the signs are different (-,+) or (+,-) arrange with the larger number first then subtract then label the answer with the sign of the larger number

4 + -6 = -6 + 4 = -2

7 + 3 = 10

-5 + (-3) = -8

If the signs are different (-,+) or (+,-) arrange with the larger number first then subtract then label the answer with the sign of the larger number

4 + -6 = -6 + 4 = -2

subtracting numbers with signs

step 1: change the subtraction problem into an addition problem

step 2: change the sign of the second number

step 3: follow the rules of adding numbers with signs

- 16 - 6

step 1: -16 + 6 =

step 2: -16 + (-6) =

step 3: -16 + (-6) = -22

12 - (-7) =

12 + (-7) =

12 + 7 =

12 + 7 = 19

step 2: change the sign of the second number

step 3: follow the rules of adding numbers with signs

- 16 - 6

step 1: -16 + 6 =

step 2: -16 + (-6) =

step 3: -16 + (-6) = -22

12 - (-7) =

12 + (-7) =

12 + 7 =

12 + 7 = 19

multiplying and dividing with signed numbers

Signs are alike -- answer is positive

Signs are different -- answer is negative

Signs are different -- answer is negative

ratio

a comparison of two numbers

vertex of an angle

scalene triangle

A triangle with sides of different lengths and no two angles are the same (sum of all angles is 180)

right triangle

one of the angles is always 90 degrees, the other two sides could be the same or different but will always = 90 degrees (sum of all angles is 180)

sum of all angles in a triangle

the sum of all angles of a triangle always adds up to 180 degrees

similar triangles

similar triangles have corresponding angles that are equal and corresponding sides that are proportional

a²+b²=c²

where c always represents the hypotenuse and a and b represent the other sides of a right triangle

where c always represents the hypotenuse and a and b represent the other sides of a right triangle
