Integer
Integer

  • 1. A member of the set of positive whole numbers {1, 2, 3, . . . }, negative whole numbers {-1, -2, -3, . . . }, and zero {0}.

  • 2. A complete unit or entity.


Rational number
Rational Number

  • A number that can be expressed as an integer or a quotient of integers. For example, 2, -5, and 1/2 are rational numbers.


Scientific notation
Scientific Notation

  • A method of writing or displaying numbers in terms of a decimal number between 1 and 10 multiplied by a power of 10. The scientific notation of 10,492, for example, is 1.0492 × 104


Perfect square
Perfect Square

  • An integer that is the square of an integer.


Irrational number
Irrational Number

  • A number that cannot be expressed as a ratio between two integers and is not an imaginary number. If written in decimal notation, an irrational number would have an infinite number of digits to the right of the decimal point, without repetition. Pi and the square root of 2 (2) are irrational numbers.


Real numbers
Real Numbers

  • A number that can be written as a terminating or no terminating decimal; a rational or irrational number. The numbers 2, -12.5, 3/7 , and pie are all real numbers.


Density property
Density Property

  • The commutative property of addition says that we can add numbers in any order. The commutative property of multiplication is very similar. It says that we can multiply numbers in any order we want without changing the result.


Adjacent angles
Adjacent Angles

  • (Mathematics) two angles that have the same vertex and a side in common


Coefficient
Coefficient

  • 1. A number or symbol multiplied with a variable or an unknown quantity in an algebraic term, as 4 in the term 4x, or x in the term x(a + b).

  • 2. A numerical measure of a physical or chemical property that is constant for a system under specified conditions such as the coefficient of friction.


Distance formula
Distance Formula

  • Given the points ( 1, -2 ) and ( -3, 5 ), find the distance between them.


Domain
Domain

  • 1. Mathematics The set of all values that an independent variable of a function can have. In the function y = 2x, the set of values that x (the independent variable) can have is the domain. Compare range.

  • 2. Computer Science A group of networked computers that share a common communications address.

  • 3. Biology A division of organisms that ranks above a kingdom in systems of classification that are based on shared similarities in DNA sequences rather than shared structural similarities. In these systems, there are three domains: the archaea, the bacteria, and the eukaryotes.

  • 4. Physics A region in a ferromagnetic substance in which the substance is magnetized with the same polarization throughout.


Hypotenuse
Hypotenuse

  • The side of a right triangle opposite the right angle. It is the longest side, and the square of its length is equal to the sum of the squares of the lengths of the other two sides.


Legs of a right triangle
Legs Of A Right Triangle

  • In a right triangle, the sides opposite to the acute angles are called the Legs of a Triangle.


Range
Range

  • The difference between the lowest and highest values.In {4, 6, 9, 3, 7} the lowest value is 3, and the highest is 9, so the range is 9-3 = 6.Range can also mean all the output values of a function.


Slope
Slope

  • The rate of change of a line. For any two points, it is the change in the y values divided by the change in the x values, and is referred to as the change in the rise over the change in the run of a line.

Slope Intercept Form

  •   Slope Intercept Form is also called as gradient, y-intercept form. Slope Intercept Form is used to generate the Equation of a straight line with a slope m and y - intercept c of the line.

Pythagorean theorem
Pythagorean Theorem

  • The theorem that the sum of the squares of the lengths of the sides of a right triangle is equal to the square of the length of the hypotenuse.

  • A triangle where all three internal angles are acute (less than 90 degrees).


Probability
Probability

  • Probability is the likelihood of something happening in the future. It is expressed as a number between zero (can never happen) to 1 (will always happen). It can be expressed as a fraction, a decimal, a percent, or as "odds".


Factor
Factor

  • To factor a number means to break it up into numbers that can be multiplied together to get the original number.

Median
Median

  • The median of a set of numbers is the number in the middle. For example, in the set of numbers {4,6,25}, the median is 6. However the numbers must be in order for the median to be in the middle. If there are an even number of numbers, then the median is the average of the last 2 middle numbers. There are 2 ways to find the median of a set of numbers: 1. Rewrite the numbers in order, then find the one in the middle2. Cross off the highest number, then the lowest, then the highest, lowest, on and on, until only one number is left. That number will be the median. This second method works best when you have a large number of numbers. So, here is a problem for you: What is the median of {9,2,1,6,3}?
