## Fractional Exponents

A fractional exponent is an alternate notation for expressing powers and roots together. Fractional Exponents are also known as Radicals or Rational Exponents. Whole Number Exponents First, look at whole number exponents: The exponent of a number says how many times to use the number in a multiplication. Fractional Exponents Remember that when aa is a … Continue reading "Fractional Exponents"

Definition What is “Standard Form”? It depends on what you are dealing with! Standard Form of a Decimal Number In Britain, this is another name for Scientific Notation, where you write down a number this way: 4321 = 4.321 × 103 In this example, 4321 is written as 4.321 × 103, because 4321 = 4.321 × … Continue reading "Standard Form"

A linear equation is an equation for a straight line. Different Forms There are many ways of writing linear equations. They usually have constants (like “3” or “c”) and must have simple variables (like “x” or “y”). The variables (like “x” or “y”) in Linear Equations do NOT have: Exponents (like the 2 in x2) Square … Continue reading "Linear Equations"

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 … Continue reading "Quadratic Equation Solver"
