OPERATIONS ON NUMBERS Addition Addition of two or more numbers gives us another number. The numbers which are added are called addends and the new number thus obtained is called the sum. For example, 34670 + 12345 = 47015 Here, 34670 and 12345 are called addends and 47015 is called the sum of 34670 and 12345. Large numbers are added in the same way as the small … [Read more...] about What Are The Four Basic Operations In Mathematics

## Hints for Remembering the Properties of Real Numbers

Hints for Remembering the Properties of Real Numbers Commutative Property - interchange or switch the elements Example shows commutative property for addition: X + Y = Y + X Think of the elements as "commuting" from one location to another. "They get in their cars and drive to their new locations." This explanation will help you to remember that the elements are "moving" … [Read more...] about Hints for Remembering the Properties of Real Numbers

## Percents

Percents Percents are used to describe parts of a whole base amount. When one of the parts of the relationship is unknown, we can solve an algebraic equation for the unknown quantity. (The solution methods shown on this page are of an algebraic, sentence translation nature. Of course, other methods of solution are also possible.)There are two main types of problems … [Read more...] about Percents

## Proportions

ProportionsA proportion is a comparison of ratios. A proportion is an equation that states that two ratios are equal, such asProportions always have an EQUAL sign! A proportion can be written in two ways: In each proportion the first and last terms (4 and 2) are called the extremes. The second and third terms (8 and 1) are called the means.Determine … [Read more...] about Proportions
