what a constant is
a constant is a number
it does not change
it in- or decreases the expression
find the constant:
47+2
the constant is 2
the secret to adding easier
61+97 can be broken up to 60+1 and 90+7
add the ones
add the tens
add them together
now you have the answer
how do multiplication
remember, multiplication is just repeated addition
think of 5x4 as 5+5+5+5
that's all you need to know
the secret to keeping isfeld happy-revealed!
1. don't talk, just keep your mouth shut
2. just work on the subject
3. pay attention
4. if you don't understand something, don't be afraid to ask
5. follow these rules
how to model a variable
1. use 10v -9, as an example
2. in this case, v can equal 3
3. replace v with 3
4. solve 10x3
5. solve the rest of the equation
6. congrats
equivalent fractions
1/2 = 2/4=5/10
multiply the denominator and the numerator with the same number
that's all you have to do
Bedmas question

how to add with unlike denominators
1. take the 2 (or more) fractions (2/9 and 5/7)
2. find the LCM (63, for this one)
3. make equivalent fractions (remember, what is done to the bottom must be done to the top
4. add (14/63+45/63)
5. change it to lowest terms (69/63=1 6/63=1 2/21)
6. you're done!
how you can convert mixed numbers into improper fractions
1. you take the fraction (2 5/9 as an example)
2. multiple the whole number by the denominator (2x9=18)
3. take that answer (18) and add it to the numerator (18+5=23)
4. put the new numerator (23) over the denominator (23/9)
5. you just converted a mixed number into a fraction!
how to do #23 on the number of the day

take the answer to question 21 (2/9, for example) and divide the numerator (top number) by the denominator (bottom number) (in this case, it's 2/9) and that's your answer

### number of the day #2 and #11

All you have to do is write the number of the day in expanded form
9000+800+70+6+0.5+0.04+0.003 Easy!
Now for number eleven is square the number which means times the number two times
9x9=81
and you are done

### Number of the day #8

Write a power using the digit in the 100th place as thr base and the digit in the 10s place as the exponent.
Example: 1234.567
two will be the base and three will be the exponent
23
(yes the three is the exponent I just put it in red)

### Variable .

Variable- A letter that represents an unknown number .
x,a,n
35
you can find these in equations .
Like : 3c+2

### Bedmas!

For bedmas all you do is start off with any brackets you do first.
(the red numbers stands for exponents)
(2+3)2x6+3(8-7)3 Do brackets first.
52x6+3(8-7)3 Keep going!
52x6+3 13 Now do exponents.
25x6+3 13 More exponents.
25x6+3 1 Now multiplication.
150+3 1 Adding!
153x1 Now whens theres a space it mean multiplication.
{153} And that's your answer

3C+2
3c= three cups
2= the counters.

### Bedmas .

B-Brackets E-Expontenets D-Division M-Multipication A-Addition S-Subtraction
18-(3x4)+28-(52)
18-12+28-(52)
18-12+28-25
6+28-25
34-25
9
(52) is suppose to be an exponent .

### Number of the day #13

All you do for 13 is multiply.
Example:4975.863
Now times it.
4x9x7x5x8x6x3=181440
See easy!

### Determine The Value Of The Experession.

<--- This when y is 3 .
The y turns into a 3 .

The brackets means to multiple .

### Table of Values .

A table is just like a graph but you put a box around it or a table around it .

This graph shows the term and how much is in that term.

### how to subtact fractions with like denomenaters

this how to subtract fractions. step1 only subtract the top not the bottom eg. 5/6 -4/6=1/6 So thats how you subtract fractions

### how to add fractions

this how to add fractons 1/6 + 4/6 thats the qusetion now theres only one step to this add the top. ONE IMPORTANT RULE DON'T ADD THE DENOMENATERS. now add the numoraters and and you will be done 1/6+4/6=5/6
this is how to add MIXED NUMBERS NUMBERS WITH UNLIKE DENOMENATERS STEP 1 1 2/3 + 5 2/6 that is the question step2 take care of the whole numbers FIRST 1+5=6.now find the comon denominater thats step3 3,6.9,12,18
6,12,18,24, now that the denomenaters or the same now it'stime to find out what the value of the numorater is. 2/3 X3=3/6. 3/6 +2/6= 1 now add them all together
5+1+1=7
this is how to find common denomanaters. step 1 frist put out the common mulitples eg 2 4 6 8 1 12 .
6 12 18 24 30. now both the demonenaters are the same then do the top this is step 1/2 X3= 3/6. now add the top of the fractions. 1/6+3/6=4/6 thats how you add fractoins with unlike denomenaters.

### Number of the day #21 and 25

Okay so to do number 21 and 25 you start off with any two numbers
Example: 2794.681
Now use these to create a fraction, 2/4 easy!
Take that fraction and put it into a percent
50% and that's your answer for number 25 and 21
Hoped you learned something!

### Number of the day #10

For number 10 in number of the day it asks you to cube a number.
To cube a number you must times the number 3 times.
example: 4327.895
7x7x7=343
See all you do is cube the ones place simple!
Hoped you learned something
expression-any single number or variable, or combination or operations(-,+,x) involving numbers and variables.

### What does N stand for?

Since were starting to learn algebra in math I thought you should know what N means.

N = any number
It is not N, because it's the first letter of the word number.

### How to add fractions with the same denominator

When you add fractions with common denominators, all you have to add is the numerator and when you get the sum of adding the 2 numerators you put the sum as the numerator and the denominator you had as a common denominator the denominator.

Here is an example of adding fractions with common denominators.

### Subtracting Factions

### Adding Mixed Numbers

What is a mixed number? A number made up of a whole number and a fraction such as:

Try this:
Step 1) Deal with fractions. Already has common denominator.
Step 2) Deal with whole numbers.
Step 3) Combine whole numbers and fractions.

### Adding Mixed Numbers

Eg. 1 1/3 + 1 1/4

First your find the L.C.M

3 - 3,6,9,12
4 - 4,8,12

Then add how many multiples to the numerator
1/3 = 4/12
1/4 = 3/12
Then add them together
4/12 + 3/12 = 7/12

Then add the whole numbers
1 + 1 = 2
Then combine the fraction and whole number
2 7/12

### Number of the day #13

The product of all the digits

Eg. 1234.567

Just multiply each number in the whole number

How you do it:

1 x 2 x 3 x 4 x 5 x 6 x 7 = 5040

### L.C.M (Lowest Common Multiple)

Here's one of the things we learned in math for the past couple months.

1. add it, Instead of Minus

2. take your denominator and make it a whole.
eg. 1/4 make it 4/4

3.plus then minus
eg. 4/4 + 1/4 - 3/4

4. solve it like the one that i maed on top and then minus it and see what you get! (thats the answer)

.

If I did divide it would be like this...
9753.182
.
--- 2
.
_________=_
4876.591

and I did that on a calculater.

### Number of The Day: Question 12.

Divide the number of the day by 3.55 and round to the nearest hundredth.
*As an example, we'll use the number 2364.578*

2364.578.
1 - Divide the number of the day by 3.55 (2364.578
÷3.55=666.07830985915).
2 - We only need to know the whole number (666) and the tenths, hundredths and thousandths (0.078). So that leaves us with the number 666.078.
3 - The question states we have to then round to the nearest hundredth, which in this case, is the 7. To determine if it will stay as 7 or go onto 8, we need to use the next place value beside it (the thousandths). If the number that determines whether you round up or down is between 0-4, you round down. If the number is between 5-9, you round up. Since the thousandths place has an 8, we'll round the hundredth up. We end up with 666.08.
4 - We've done all the steps so the answer to this would be 666.08.

2 - Any whole number that ends with a 0, 2, 4, 6 and 8 (examples: 50, 9002, 5634, 1188).
3 - The sum of the whole number must have the factor of 3 (example: 1234. 1+2+3+4=10. 10 does not have the factor of 3).
4 - Any whole number that can be divisible by 2 twice (example: 240. 240÷2=120. 120÷2=60. 240 is divisible by 4).
5 - Any whole number that ends with 5 or 0 (examples: 3425, 100 etc..).
6 - The sum of the whole number must have the factor of 6/must be divisible by 2 and 3 (examples: 570. 5+7+0=12. 12 has the factor of 6/12. 12 is divisible by 2 and 3).
8 - Any whole number that can be divisible by 2 thrice (example: 624. 624÷2=312. 312÷2=156. 156÷2=78. 624 is divisible by 8).
9 - The sum of the whole number must have the factor of 9 (example: 6376. 6+3+7+6=22. 22 does not have the factor of 9).
10 - Any whole number ending in 0 (example: 10, 20, 30 etc..).
*These are the rules that we've gone through already*
