10 Math Equations That Have Never Been Solved

10 September 2020

Mathematics has played a major role in so many life-altering inventions and theories. But there are still some math equations that have managed to elude even the greatest minds, like Einstein and Hawkins. Other equations, however, are simply too large to compute. So for whatever reason, these puzzling problems have never been solved. But what […]

Finding Dimensional Formula For Acceleration

10 September 2020

Physical quantities are used to quantify the properties of a system. To give meaning to these physical quantities, a numerical value and a unit, which is universally accepted, are combined. For example, to measure the length of a beam, we say the beam is 6 [numerical quantity] + meters [unit]. Dimensional formulas represent an essential way […]

Determining if a Plane Figure Can Be Regular

10 September 2020

Faced with the task of teaching your kids the geometry you learned in school, but no longer remember? Panicking because you can't remember a simple phone number anymore, let alone mathematical theories? Fell asleep during your Zoom math class? You're not alone. COVID-19 has everyone hunkered down at home, and "school teacher" has been added to our […]

Finding The Angle Line Using the Y-Axis

10 September 2020

To find the angle line using the y-axis, you'll need the equation of a line in reference to the vertical line. When dealing with graphs, the x- and y-axis are considered codependent. The x-axis is usually referred to as the independent variable, while the y-axis belongs to the dependent variable. Dependent Variables Let’s say you are conducting […]

How To Find the Radix of an Equation

10 September 2020

A radix refers to the number of digits that are used when representing numerical figures in a positional numeral system. The maximum number of unique numbers used is called the radix. The radix can include "0." For example, the decimal system contains 10 unique digits from 0 to 9. The radix of the decimal system, therefore, is 10, or […]

How To Find The Origin of a Line

10 September 2020

"Let’s go back to the beginning." How many times have you heard this line come up in movies, novels, or even had it said to you? Most things in life usually have a beginning, a starting point, or an origin -- even math. One important principle is understanding how to find the origin of a […]

Finding the Cube Root of Decimals

18 July 2020

A decimal number is essentially a fraction that uses a point to separate the whole number part and the fractional part. The fractional parts are expressed as parts in tens, hundreds, thousands, etc. An example of a decimal number is 2.5, where 2 is the whole number, and 5 is the fractional part. The 5 after […]

Finding the Regular Mean in Geometry

18 July 2020

Mathematics is like any other language. To work in it, you need to first understand a particular set of definitions and rules. That's why when faced with a phrase like "find the regular mean in geometry," step back and look at the language. In this case, we have three different words to interpret: regular, mean, […]

Finding Integers in Algebraic Equations

18 July 2020

Integers include any whole number found on a number line. They also include any negative number that falls on a number line. Whole numbers are strictly positive. Integers do not include anything that is a fraction or decimal. For example: -4 is an integer. 0 is an integer. 5.3 is not an integer. It is worth noting that […]

How To Write Your Own Equation in Algebra

3 July 2020

An equation is like a sentence, just using a different language. Mathematical equations are telling you to do something, giving you information on how to respond, or come up with an answer. It's up to you to learn this language. However, once you know it, you can write in this language! You, too, can write […]
