Overview Factoring a monomial from a polynomial is a process of finding the greatest common factor for the constants, the greatest common factor for the variable terms, and then using the distributive property to factor out the greatest common factor (GCF). Identifying Factors In symbol form, if a ∙ b = c, then both a […]
Overview Solving application problems is a process that includes understanding the problem, translating it into an equation, solving the equation, checking the answer, and answering the question. This process can be used to solve many different types of problems. Understanding and Setting up The Application Problem The first part of the process involves understanding what […]
Overview The first step in solving real-world problems mathematically is to change the problem into an equation. Sometimes, it is a matter of deciding what operations need to be used. It is also a matter of seeing how quantities relate to one another. Operations Words and phrases that represent addition include such things as added […]
Overview Real numbers include rational and irrational numbers, whole numbers, positive and negative integers, and the number 0. They can be used in operations such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, as well as in expressions involving variables. Real Numbers Real numbers include many different types of numbers that are familiar, such as positive and […]
Overview Decimals and percent are used in many different types of mathematical calculations and applications. They require attention to detail to use correctly. Adding and Subtracting Decimals In order to add and subtract numbers that contain decimal points, the numbers must be aligned so that the place values are the same. Then they can be […]
