you multiply the front numbers and add the exponents
EE on my calculators means...
To add and subtract in scientific notation...
you put both numbers into standard form, solve, put back into scientific

x = a number
one real solution
0 = 0
infinite real solutions. numbers and variables are the same
0 = a number
no real solutions. variables are the same, numbers are different
Solve for a variable
- Draw a wall
- Combine like terms
- Variables on the left, numbers on the right
o Switch sides, switch signs
- Combine like terms
- Divide by the number next to the variable (coefficient) or multiply by the reciprocal

Range and output
To be a function on a graph, the line must pass
the vertical line test
The vertical line test
A test used to determine whether a relation is a function by checking if a vertical line touches 2 or more points on the graph of a relation

squared or in the denominator
A nonlinear association does not have a
constant rate of change
The 4 transformations are
Reflection, Translation, Rotation, Dilation
These 3 transformations are congruent
Reflection, Rotation, Translation
This transformation is similar
If you reflect over the y-axis
change the sign of the x
If you reflect over the x-axis
change the sign of the y
If you reflect over the origin
change the sign of the x and y coordinates
90° means turn
180° means turn
270° means turn
three times or once in the opposite direction
A 180° rotation is the same as
a reflection over the origin
Clockwise you turn to the
Counter-clockwise you turn to the
90° clockwise rotation
90° counter clockwise rotation
larger or tinier
On dilation, you ________________ the coordinates by the scale factor
If your scale factor is more than 1...
the shape gets bigger
If you scale factor is less than 1...
the shape gets smaller
