Hint


Answer

The distance of a number from zero.

A

Absolute value

An algebraic expression of the sum or the difference of two terms.

B

Binomial

A constant by which an algebraic term is multiplied.

C

Coefficient

In an arithmetic sequence, the amount that can be added to each number to get the next one.

C

Common difference

For any two numbers a and b, a+b=b+a.

C

Commutative law of addition

A value that does not change.

C

Constant

A variable whose value depends on the value of one or more other variables.

D

Dependent variable

Of fractions, having the same numerical value. Of equations or inequalities, having the same solution set.

E

Equivalent

Solve.

E

Evaluate

The number of times a number is multiplied by itself in an expression such as 3^{3}.

E

Exponent

A combination of variables and numbers using arithmetic.

E

Expression

A fraction in which the numerator is larger than the denominator.

I

Improper fraction

A variable that does not depend on any other variable for its value.

I

Independent variable

A mathematical sentence that uses one of the symbols <, >, ≤, or ≥.

I

Inequality

A whole number or the negative of a whole number.

I

Integer

A number that cannot be written as a fraction ^{m}⁄_{n} where m and n are integers.

I

Irrational number

The average of a collection of data values.

M

Mean

The middle number in an ordered list of data values. If there are an even number of values, the value is halfway between the two middle numbers in the list.

M

Median

The most common value or values in a collection of values.

M

Mode

A number that can be written as a fraction ^{m}⁄_{n} where m and n are integers.

R

Rational number

To represent a mathematical expression in the least complicated form possible.

S

Simplify

In an equation or inequality, a number that can be substituted for the variable to make that equation or inequality true. If the equation or inequality has more than one variable, a list of numbers that when substituted for the list of variables makes the equation or inequality true.

S

Solution

The values on which mathematical operations occur in an algebraic expression.

T

Terms

A symbol that represents an unknown value.

V

Variable

One of the numbers 0, 1, 2, 3, ... .

W

Whole number
