Relative Frequency

Definition Relative Frequency is How often something happens divided by all outcomes. To compute relative frequency, one obtains a frequency count for a subgroup of the population and a frequency count for the total population. The relative frequency is: How to Find Relative Frequency Relative frequency = Subgroup count / Total count The above equation

Reciprocal of Number

The reciprocal of a number is one divided by that number Reciprocal of a Fraction To get the reciprocal of a fraction, simply switch the top and bottom of the fraction (numerator and denominator). Reciprocal of a Reciprocal The reciprocal of a reciprocal takes you back to where we started: Remember that “Reciprocal” comes from the Latin reciprocus


Definition Difference is the result of subtracting one number from another. How much one number differs from another. More Examples Here are more examples about difference: Numbers Difference Reason 7 and 5 2 7 – 5 = 2 4 and 9 5 9 – 4 = 5 11 and 8 3 11 – 8 =

Multiplicative Inverse

Multiplicative Inverse is Another name for Reciprocal. What you multiply by a number to get 1 In other words: When we multiply a number by its “Multiplicative Inverse” we get 1. But not when the number is 0 because 1/0 is undefined! More Examples of Multiplicative Inverse Number Multiplicative inverse 2 1/2 3 1/3 5


Definition An angle measures the amount of turn Names of Angles As the Angle Increases, the Name Changes: Type of Angle Description Illustration Acute Angle is less than 90°   Right Angle is 90° exactly         Obtuse Angle is greater than 90° butless than 180°    Straight Angle is 180° exactly   Reflex Angle is

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

Additive Inverse

Definition of Additive Inverse The additive inverse of a number is another number you add to a number to create the sum of zero. In other words, additive inverse of x is another number, for examle y, as long as the sum of x + y equals zero. The additive inverse of x is equal

Composite Number

Composite number is a whole number that can be made by multiplying other whole numbers. Example: 10 can be made by 5 × 2 so is a composite number. Not Composite number 5 = 1 × 5, Is not composite number because 1 × 5 isn’t using other whole numbers 7 = 2 × 3.5, Is

Equivalent Fractions

Equivalent Fractions have the same value, even though they may look different. These fractions are really the same: Why are they the same? Because when you multiply or divide both the top and bottom by the same number, the fraction keeps it’s value. The rule to remember is: “Change the bottom using multiply or divide,

Homogeneous Differential Equations

A Differential Equation is an equation with a function and one or more of its derivatives: Example: an equation with the function y and its derivative Homogeneous Differential Equations A first order Differential Equation is Homogeneous when it can be in this form: We can solve it using Separation of Variables but first we create
