minuend
A number from which another number is subtracted.
12 - 8 = 4 (12 is minuend)
subtrahend
A number that is subtracted.
12 - 8 = 4 (8 is subtrahend)
difference
The result of subtraction.
12 - 8 = 4 (4 is difference)
quotient
The result of division.
12 / 3 = 4 (four is quotient)
divisor
A number by which another number is divided.
12 / 3 = 4 (3 is divisor)
dividend
A number that is divided.
12 / 3 = 4 (12 is dividend)
digits
Any of the symbols used to write numbers: 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9.
decimal point
A numeral that contains a decimal point.
expanded notation
A way of writing a number as the sum of the products of the digits and the place values of the digits.
origin
The location of the number 0 on a number line.
opposites
Two numbers whose sum is zero; a positive number and a negative number whose absolute values are equal.
coordinate
A number used to locate a point on a number line.
inverse operations
Operations that "undo" one another.
algorithm
Any process for solving a mathematical problem.
decimal numbers
A numeral that contains a decimal point.
decimal fractions
A decimal number.
line
A straight collection of points extending in opposite directions without end.
power
The value of an exponential expression.
point
An exact position on a line, on a plane, or in space.
ray
A part of a line that begins at a point and continues without end in one direction.
perpendicular
Two lines that intersect at right angles.
right angle
an angle that forms a square corner and measures 90degrees. often marked with a small square.
straight angle
An angle that measures 180degrees and thus forms a straight line.
obtuse angle
An angle whose measure is between 90 and 180 degrees.
perimeter
The distance around a closed, flat shape.
divisible
Able to be divided by a whole number without a remainder.
composite number
A counting number greater than 1 that is divisible by a number other than itself and 1. Every composite number has three or more factors.
prime number
A counting number greater than 1 whose only two factors are the number 1 and itself.
greatest common factor
The largest whole number that is a factor of two or more indicated numbers.
numerator
The top term of a fraction.
denominator
The bottom term of a fraction.
repetend
The repeating digits of a decimal number. The symbol for a repetend is an overbar.
expanded notation
A way of writing a number as the sum of the products of the digits and the place values of the digits.
exponent
The upper number in an exponential expression that shows how many times the base is to be used as a factor.
base
(1) A designated side (or face) of a geometric figure. (2) the lower number in an exponential expression.
exponential expression
An expression that indicates that the base is to be used as a factor the number of times shown by the exponent.
average
The number found when the sum of two or more numbers is divided by the number of addends in the sum; also called mean.
unite multiplier
A ratio equal to 1 that is composed of two equivalent measures.
mode
The number or numbers that appear most often in a list of date.
median
The middle number of a list of data when the numbers are arranged in order from the least of the greatest.
mean
The number found when the sum of two or more numbers is divided by the number of addends in the sum.
reciprocal
The results of inventing a fraction.
multiple
A product of a counting number and another number.
least common multiple
The smallest whole number that is a multiple of two or more given numbers.
range
The difference between the largest number and smallest number in a list.
altitude

rate
A ratio of two measures.
ratio
A comparison of two numbers by division.
equation
