Inverse Operation

Inverse Operation is an operation that reverses or undo the effect of another operation. Definition of Inverse Operation What are Inverse Operations? Inverse means reverse in position / direction. The word “inverse” comes from the Latin word “inversus” which means to turn inside out or upside down. Inverse operation in mathematics is an operation that undoes what was done by the previous operation. Most


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

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

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,

Least Common Denominator

What is a Denominator? The denominator is the bottom number in a fraction. It shows how many equal parts the item is divided into Common Denominator? When the denominators of 2 or more fractions are the same, they have Common Denominators. Finding a Common Denominator One simple answer is to multiply the current denominators together.

Mixed Fractions

Mixed Fraction is also known as Mixed Number A Mixed Fraction is a whole number and a proper fraction combined. Each example is made up of a whole number and a proper fraction together. That is why it is called a mixed fraction or mixed number. 3 Types of Fractions There are 3 types of

Equal, Greater, or Less Than

As well as the familiar equals sign (=) it is also very useful to show if something is not equal to (≠) greater than (>) or less than (<) Equality and Inequality Definition In mathematics, equality is a relationship between 2 quantities or more (generally 2 mathematical expressions) asserting that the expressions represent the same

Expanded Notation

Definition Expanded Notation is about Writing a number to show the value of each digit. Expanded Notation is shown as a sum of each digit multiplied by its matching place value (ones, tens, hundreds, etc.) Examples 1,234 = 1 × 1,000 + 2 × 100 + 3 × 10 + 4 × 1 98,765 = 9 ×

Rational Function

Definition Rational Function is A function that is the ratio of 2 polynomials. It is Rational because one polynomial is divided by the other polynomial, like a ratio.
