Number Terms to Know:

brackets

group terms inside that should be treated alike.

common factor

a factor that two or more numbers have in common.

counting numbers

also called natural numbers, the positive numbers used to count.

cube

to multiply a number times itself and then times itself again. 2 x 2 x 2 = 2

3

= 8

cube root

is the number that, when cubed, gives a certain number.The cube root of 8

= 2.

decimal

a number with a decimal point separating the whole and decimal part.

decimal places

the digits to the right of a decimal point in a number.

denominator

the number on the bottom of a fraction. It is the number of pieces thewhole is divided into.

divisible

a number is

divisible

by another number if it can be divided equally by thatnumber.

Divisibility RulesA number can be dividedby:If:

1 It is any number2 It is an even number (ends in 0, 2,4, 6, 8)The digits add to a number divisible by 34 the last two digits are divisible by 45 It ends in 0 or 56 It is divisible by 2 and 378 Last three digits are divisible by 89 The digits add to a number divisible by 910 It ends in 0A number is divisible by something if that number goes into it evenly with noremainder

Because a number divided by itself always yields 1, a number is always divisible byitself.

No number is divisible by a number greater than itself.

Number Terms to Know (continued):

equivalent

two fractions that express the same part of a whole. If you multiply thenumerator and denominator of one fraction by a number you get an equivalentfraction. 1/4, 2/8, and 3/12 are all equivalent fractions.

estimate

to find an approximate value for a calculation by rounding each of thenumbers.

exponent

the number that tells you how many times to multiply the base number byitself.

factor

a number which divides evenly into another number.

factorise

to find all the factors of a number.

fraction

written as one whole number over another, it describes part of a whole.Ex. 3/4, 1/6, 19/4.

Highest (or Greatest) Common Factor

The greatest (highest, largest) numberthat divides into two or more givennumbers.

improper fraction

A fraction whosenumerator is equal to or greater than itsdenominator.

index

(see

exponent

) also called a

power

.

index notation

when a product is writtenas one or more base numbers andexponents.

integers

all the whole numbers and theiropposites (the positive whole numbers,the negative whole numbers, and zero) --fractions and decimals are

not

integers.

inverse operation

the operation thatundoes or reverses an operation. For example,addition and subtraction are inverse operations.

irrational numbers

a number that is not an integer and cannot be written as afraction. They are infinite, non-recurring decimals.

Least Common Denominator

the least common multiple of the denominators of two ormore fractions. That is, the lowest number which is a multiple of both denominators.

Least Common Multiple

the smallest number that is divisible by two or more givennumbers.

Number Terms to Know (continued):

lowest terms

when a fraction‘s numerator and denominator have no common factors

mixed number

a number composed of a whole number and a fraction. 5

the multiples of a number are the products of the multiplication table.

The set of numbers less than zero, to the left of 0 on the numberline.

numerator

the number above the line in a fraction. It is the number of parts that arebeing

.

Order of Operations (BODMAS or BIDMAS):

The order in which to carry outoperations when evaluating an expression-- brackets, powers (or indices),multiplication and division, addition and subtraction.

percentage

meaning "parts per hundred;" a fraction in which the number to the leftof the % sign is the numerator and 100 is the denominator. 57% = 57/100 =0.57.

place value

the value of a digit, based on where it appears in a numeral. The value of eachposition in a numeral is ten times the value of the position to its right.

prime factorization
