Integers

Algebra
• Simplifying
– Remember: You can’t add a variable (x) with a
number that does not have a variable

• Example: 2x + 3x + 3 + 2 = 5x + 5
• Remember:
1. What you do on one side of the equal (=)
symbol, you must do on the other side
2. What ever is outside the bracket you must
multiply what is inside the bracket.

Cartesian Coordinates
• The first number is the x coordinate and the second
number is the y coordinate
• Example: (4, 6) = (x, y)
1st quadrant (+, +)
2nd quadrant (-, +)
3rd quadrant (-, -)
4th quadrant (+, -)

Slope of a line

Percent, Decimal & Fraction
• Fraction to Decimal
– Top # ÷ by the bottom #

• Fraction to Percent
– Top # ÷ by bottom #, multiply by 100

• Decimal to Percent
– Move decimal two places to the right

Taxes
• How do you figure out the taxes on things you
buy?
– What do you do If taxes are 15% and the item you
want to buy is $19.91?
Step 1: Change the 15% into a decimal
15% = 0.15
Step 2: Multiply your item amount $19.91 by 0.15
19.91 × 0.15 = 2.9865 = $2.99
Step 3: Add your item price and your tax amount
$19.91 + $2.99 = $22.90

Discounts
• How do you figure out how much a discount is on
a certain item?
Let’s say you want to buy a new computer and it is
$1489.70 and it is 40% off. How much is the final
price?
Step 1: Multiply your total by percent in a decimal
1489.70 × .40 = 595.88
Step 2: Subtract item total from discount (step 1)
1489.70 – 595.88 = $902.82

Circles
• Radius = Diameter ÷ 2
• Formulas:
Diameter
d=r×2
d=c

Perimeter (Circumference)
C= d
C=2 r

Measurement of the ARC.

Polygons
• What is the definition of a polygon?
• Regular vs. Irregular?
• Concave vs. Convex?

Polygon names







Triangle – 3 sides
Quadrilateral – 4 sides
Pentagon – 5 sides
Hexagon – 6 sides
Heptagon – 7 sides
Octagon – 8 sides
Nonagon – 9 sides
Decagon – 10 sides

Polygons
• Sum of Interior Angles =
(n-2) × 180°

• Each Angle (of a Regular Polygon) =
(n-2) × 180° / n
n = amount of sides on the polygon

Area of a Polygon
Formula:
A = P × ap
2
P = Perimeter
ap = apothem

Diagonals
• A straight line drawn from one vertices
(corner) to another vertices (corner)
Formula: n (n-3)
2

n = sides of the shape

Angles





Acute – Less than 90°
Obtuse – More than 90°, but less than 180°
Right – 90°
Supplementary – 2 angles that equal 180°
Complementary – 2 angles that equal 90°
Opposite – Angles that are across from each
other that are the same angle

Angles
• Finding angles without using a protractor
• Using Supplementary angles is a great way to
help you find unknown angles.
• Triangles are always 180°

Triangles




4 kinds of triangles
Equilateral:
Scalene:
Right angle:
Isosceles:

Geometric Solids

Area of Geometric Solids
• Formulas:
Cube: 6 × s2
Cylinder

Rectangular Prism
Front/back
Ends
Top/bottom

A=l×w

Triangular Prism:

A=bxh
2
A=lxw

Geometric Solids
• When getting the area of a geometric solid,
remember to do all of the sides.
• Example: When the area for a triangular prism
you need to:
• 1. Calculate the triangle, then multiply by 2
• 2. Calculate the rectangle, then multiply by 3

Probability
• Probability Tree

Exponents
• If you have the same number multiplied together a
bunch of times, you can use powers to express all that
multiplication
Example: a x a x a x a… = an

a1 = a

Any number to the power of 1 is just itself!
Ex: 51 = 5, 201 = 20, (-6242)1 = -6242

a0 = 1 Any number to the power of 0 is 1.
Ex: 50 = 1, 450=1, (-6242)0 = 1
If you have a negative base:
Even exponent = (+)
Odd exponent = (-)

Unit Conversion
When you move a
number's decimal
point, be sure to
add zeroes for each
space that you
move the decimal
point beyond the
available digits. For
instance, when
converting 1
kilometer to
centimeters, the
decimal point is
initially to the right
of the number 1, as
so: 1. Moving the
decimal place to the
right means you
must insert a zero
so that the number
becomes 10.

Unit Conversion

Pythagorean Theorem
• The two shorter sides are called legs. It
doesn’t matter which one is which!
• The side across from the 90° angle is called
the hypotenuse. This is usually labelled with
“c”.
• The hypotenuse is always the longest side
• Formula:
