Subtracting Fractions

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).

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

Polynomials: Definition, Adding, Subtraction, Examples

What is Polynomial? Poly means “many” and nomials means “terms”. Polynomial means one of algebraic expression that consist of variable, coefficient, and constant. The characteristic of polynomial is it has non-negative integer power. Polynomial can be written as anxn + an-1xn-1 + an-2xn-2 + …. + a2x2 + a1x1 + a0 or Where an,….a0   : any number(as coefficient and

Difference

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 =

Rectangle: Definition, Area, Perimeter, Diagonal, Properties, & Examples

One type of shape in geometry is rectangle. There are many rectangle-shape things in daily life for example table, whiteboard, books, phone, door, window, etc. Definition of Rectangle Rectangle is one of a two-dimensional shape in geometry. It has two (pairs) parallel sides that they are two lengths and two widths. The length and width

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

Angles

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

L’hopital’s rule: Definition, Proof, Examples

What is l’hopital’s rule L’hospital rule is one of ways to make limit easier to solve. It was introduced by French mathematicians, Guillaume de l’Hôpital. It was 1969 in his book “Analyse des Infiniment Petits pour l’Intelligence des Lignes Courbes.” L’hospital rule use derivative concept. In calculus, L’hospital use derivative to determine limit value in

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
