A symbol or letter used to represent a quantity that can change.
A value that does not change. Ex. 5, 7, -10
A number multiplied by a variable.
A part of an expression to be added or subtracted.
A mathematical phrase that can contain ordinary numbers, variables (like x or y³) and operators (like add,subtract,multiply, divide).
Product Property of Exponents
When multiplying like bases you add the exponents.
x⁴ x⁵ = x⁹
Quotient Property of Exponents
When dividing like bases you subtract the exponents
x⁶/x⁴ = x²
Power Property of Exponents
When raising a base to a power then another power you multiply the exponents. (x³)² = x⁶
Base of a power
The number or variable used a factor Ex. x⁵ the x indicates it is used as a factor
An expression that indicates how many times the base is used as a factor. Ex. x⁵ the 5 indicates the base is used 5 times.
Another name for the exponent.
The order of operations - Parenthesis, Exponents, Multiply & Divide L->R, Add & Subtract L->R
The distance of a number on the number line from zero. Represented by to vertical bars |x|.
Always represented by a positive number it represents the space between two locations.
Rule for Adding Real Numbers - Same Sign
Add the numbers and keep the sign
Rule for Adding Real Numbers - Different Signs
Subtract the numbers' absolute values and keep the sign of the greater number
Rules for Subtracting Real Numbers
KFC - Keep the sign of the first number
- Flip the subtract sign to an add sign
- Change the sign of the second number
Rules for Multiplying/Dividing Non-Zero Real Numbers
Same Signs = Positive Opposite Signs = Negative
Ex. (-4)(2) = -8 | (-4)(-2) = 8
(4)/(-2) = -2 | (-4)/(-2) = 2
For all real numbers a( b + c ) = ab + ac
a( b - c ) = ab - ac
Two or more terms that have the same variable(s) with the same power(s)
a process for converting measures into different units by using unit multipliers
Area of a square
A = s²
Area of a rectangle
A = lw
Area of a parallelogram
A = bh
Area of a circle
A = πr²
Area of a triangle
A = ½bh
Square Root √x
The number multiplied by itself to give x
A number that is a square of an integer.
A measure of how likely a given event, or outcome, will occur. Represented by a fraction, decimal, or percent. (# ways to get what you want)/(Total # of possibilities)
Solve an equation
To find the value or values of a variable which will make the statement true. There is always a possibility of no solution or all numbers are a solution.
Operations that undo each other.
Addition ↔ Subtraction Multiplication ↔ Division
The variable whose value can be chosen. INPUT
The variable whose value is determined by the input value of another variable. OUTPUT
A display where the data is organized by PLACE VALUE, very useful if you need to find the mean, median, or mode of the data set.
A display where the data is represented by vertical or horizontal bars.
The average of a set of numbers. The sum of values in a data set divided by the number of data values.
The middle number in a set of numbers when they are arranged in order. If there is an even number of data values in the set, find the mean of the two middle numbers.
The value or values that occur most frequently in a data set. If all values occur the same number of times, then it does not exist.
The set of possible values for the independent variable. The x values.
The set of possible values for the dependent variable.
The y values.
A point on the coordinate plane (x,y)
A set of ordered pairs where each number in the domain is matched to one or more numbers in the range.
A special relation where every x value in the domain pairs with exactly one value in the range (y).
f(x) This is read as "f of x" This does NOT mean f times x. This is a special way to show an expression is a function. It can use other letters but must have the same format where (?) is the independent variable. A(l) G(e) B(r)
