Prime Factorization

Prime Numbers A Prime Number is a whole number greater than 1 that can not be made by multiplying other whole numbers. The number that we can make by multiplying other whole numbers is a Composite Number. Factors Factors are the numbers you multiply together to get another number 4 × 2 = 8 From

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

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

Positive and Negative Numbers

Numbers Can be Positive or Negative – Negative sign + Positive sign No Sign Means Positive If a number has no sign it usually means that it is a positive number. Any numbers greater than zero are described as positive numbers. Usually, we don’t put a plus sign in front of positive numbers because the

Irrational Numbers

Irrational means not Rational An Irrational Number is a real number that cannot be written as a simple fraction.   Example Rational Number 0.5 = ½ Irrational Number √2 = 1.414213562373095… = ?/? Rational Numbers A Rational Number can be written as a Ratio of 2 integers (ie a simple fraction). Irrational Numbers The numbers that

Rational Numbers: Definition & Examples

What are rational numbers Numbers are core of mathematics. Almost all of mathematics parts consist of numbers. There are some types of numbers. One of them is rational numbers. Rational numbers were invented by Greek mathematician, Phytagoras. Rational numbers consist of natural numbers and integers. Rational numbers symbolized as boldface Q (Q). It is type

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

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

Absolute Value

Definition of Absolute Value Absolute value or modulus |x| of a real number x is the non-negative value of x without regard to its sign. |x| = x for a positive x, |x| = −x for a negative x (in which case −x is positive) |0| = 0. For example, the absolute value of 5 is
