Definitions Just an easy way to remember how Sine, Cosine and Tangent work: Soh…   (Sine = Opposite / Hypotenuse) …cah…  (Cosine = Adjacent / Hypotenuse) …toa (Tangent = Opposite / Adjacent) Right Triangle Firstly, the names Opposite, Adjacent and Hypotenuse come from the right triangle: “Opposite” is opposite to the angle θ “Adjacent” is adjacent (next to) to

Fibonacci Sequence

About Fibonacci (The Man) His real name was Leonardo Pisano Bogollo. He lived in Italy between 1170 and 1250. “Fibonacci” was his nickname, which roughly means “Son of Bonacci”. Fibonacci was not the first to know about the sequence, it was known in India hundreds of years before! As well as being famous for the Fibonacci

Quadratic Equation Solver

A quadratic is a type of problem In mathematics that deals with a variable multiplied by itself (an operation known as squaring). It derives from the area of a square being its side length multiplied by itself. The word quadratic comes from “quadratum”, which means square in Latin word. There are a lot of phenomena in the real world that can be

Solving SSA Triangles

SSA (Side, Side, Angle) is when we know 2 sides and 1 angle that is not the angle between the sides. How to solve an SSA triangle ? First, use Law of Sines to calculate one of the other two angles. Then, use the three angles add to 180° to find the other angle. Finally

Vertical Angles

Definition Vertical Angles are the angles opposite each other when two lines cross In this case, “Vertical” means they share the same corner point (Vertex), not the usual meaning of up-down. Example a° and b° are vertical angles. Vertical Angles are Congruent Angles The interesting thing here is that vertical angles are congruent angles: a°

Logarithmic: Definition, Functions & Rules, Examples

Definition of Logarithmic Functions Logarithmic and exponential function has close relation. It is because logarithmic inverse of exponential function. Any exponential function can be changed to be logarithmic function and any logarithmic function can be changed to be exponential function. For example there is exponential function x = ay, so the logarithmic function is alog

Even and Odd Numbers

Even Numbers Any integer that can be divided exactly by 2 is an even number. The last digit is 0, 2, 4, 6 or 8 Example: −10, -4, 0, 8, and 32 are all even numbers Odd Numbers Any integer that cannot be divided exactly by 2 is an odd number. The last digit is 1, 3,

Cardinal and Ordinal Numbers Chart

Definitions A Cardinal Number is a number that says how many of something there are, such as 1, 2, 3, 4. An Ordinal Number is a number that tells the position of something in a list, such as 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th. Most ordinal numbers end in “th” except for: one ⇒ first (1st) two

Set Symbols

Set Symbols – A Set is a collection of things, usually numbers. We can list each element or member of a set inside curly brackets like this: {2, 4, 6, 8, … } Three dots means goes on forever (infinite) Common Symbols Used in Set Theory Symbols save time and space when writing. Here are

Negative Exponents

Definitions Exponents are also called Powers or Indices The exponent of a number says how many times to use the number in a multiplication. General form of exponent an tells you to use a in a multiplication n times Those are positive exponents How About Negative Exponents? Dividing is the inverse (opposite) of Multiplying. A negative exponent
