We can find an unknown angle in a right-angled triangle, as long as we know the lengths of two of its sides. Use Sine, Cosine or Tangent! Use SOHCAHTOA to help you, like this: How to Finding an Angle in a Right Angled Triangle 1. find the names of the two sides we know Adjacent … Continue reading "Finding an Angle in a Right Angled Triangle"

## Directly and Inversely Proportional

Directly Proportional Directly proportional: when one amount increases, another amount increases at the same rate. The symbol for “directly proportional” is ∝ Inversely Proportional Inversely Proportional: when one value increases, at the same rate that the other decreases. Examples Directly Proportional Inversely Proportional Have more workers You pay more Work time is shorter How … Continue reading "Directly and Inversely Proportional"

Definition If a × b = 0 then a = 0 or b = 0 or a = b = 0 A product of factors is zero if and only if one or more of the factors is zero. Standard Form of an Equation The Standard Form of an equation is: “some expression” = 0 Learn More Partial Sum General Form of … Continue reading "Zero Product Property"

Read More## Partial Sum

A series is the sum of the terms in a sequence (not the list of terms, like a sequence). The series with a finite number of terms is a easy to find the sum of the series just by adding the terms. However, for the series with an infinite number of terms, the summation is more difficult and complicated. … Continue reading "Partial Sum"

Read More## General Form of Equation of a Line

Definition General Form of the equation of a straight line is: Ax + By + C = 0 Note: A or B can’t be zero at the same time. (if A = 0 then B ≠ 0, vice versa) The General Form is not always the most useful form, and you may prefer to use: Slope-Intercept Form … Continue reading "General Form of Equation of a Line"

Definition A fraction like 2/3 says we have 2 out of the 3 parts the whole is divided into. The top number is called numerator The bottom number is called denominator There are 3 simple steps to subtract fractions Make sure the bottom numbers (the denominators) are the same Subtract the top numbers (the numerators). … Continue reading "Subtracting Fractions"

Read More## Infinite Series

Definition of Infinite Series Infinite series are the sum of infinitely many numbers listed in a given order & related in a given way. For an infinite series a1 + a2 + a3 + … , a quantity sn = a1 + a2 + … + an, which involves adding only the first n terms, is called a partial sum. For Sn approaches a fixed number … Continue reading "Infinite Series"

There are 3 Simple Steps to Divide Fractions: Turn the second fraction (the one you want to divide by) upside down (this is now a reciprocal). Multiply the first fraction by that reciprocal of second fraction Simplify the fraction (if needed) Fractions and Whole Numbers What about division with fractions and whole numbers? Make the … Continue reading "Dividing Fractions"

Sequence A Sequence is a set of things (usually numbers) that are in order. 2, 4, 6, 8, … Geometric Sequences In a Geometric Sequence, each term is found by multiplying the previous term by a constant. This sequence has a factor of 3 between each number. Each term (except the first term) is found … Continue reading "Geometric Sequences and Sums"

Definition of Parallel Lines If 2 lines are parallel, their slopes are same. Slope is the value m in the equation of a line. y = mx + b If two lines are parallel lines, they will never intersect. They have exactly the same steepness which means their slopes are identical. Since: Slope is a … Continue reading "Parallel and Perpendicular Lines"
