Most people have seen some basic graphs before. Graphs are pictorial representations of data and values along axes. By understanding basic graphs and how to apply translations to them, you'll realize that each new graph is a variation of the old one. It is not a completely different graph than you've ever seen before. Understanding […]

The perimeter of a triangle is its three sides added together. The area of a triangle is quite interesting. It will usually be expressed as area = (1/2) x base x height, A = (1/2)b*h, where height is measured as a vertical line from the base to the opposite vertex. This formula makes calculating the […]

Trigonometry examines the relationship between the sides of a triangle, more specifically, right triangles. A right triangle has a 90° angle. The equations and ratios that describe the relationship between the sides of a triangle and its angles are trigonometric functions. In this particular article, we're going to explain one specific ratio: "cos" or cosine. […]

The slope-intercept form is the most common linear equation format. Although this form, written as y=mx+b, can look odd and confusing due to its use of variables, it is easy to use with proper explanation and practice. Even more, you can extract vast amounts of information from a single equation. The Basics As mentioned previously, […]

An algebraic fraction is any fraction that uses a variable in the numerator or denominator. For example, the variable x in the fraction x/3 makes it an algebraic fraction. In algebraic fractions, you cannot divide by zero. As such, the denominator has certain restrictions. Take a look at the illustrations below. In the fraction 5/x, […]

The term "imaginary number" describes any number that, when squared, gives a negative result. When you consider that man invented all numbers, you can also consider working with imaginary numbers. It's acceptable to invent new numbers as long as it works within the bounds of the rules that are already in place. Simply put, an imaginary […]

We deal with numbers all the time, whether it's on an individual or corporate level. But rough numbers or data sets don't make a whole lot of sense until we have proper tools to study them. Mean, median, and mode are some of those tools. If you're looking at a large group of data, these terms can […]

Let's say you want to measure the length of any distance or line sitting on horizontal or vertical axes on a coordinate plane. You can count the coordinates. The tricky part is using the same formula for a diagonal line—that's where the distance formula comes in. Based on the Pythagorean Theorem, the distance formula sets […]
