Fractions & Decimals
– A fraction represents division, the numerator
is divided by the denominator.
» 2/3 is read as 2 divided by 3
– Proper fraction: numerator is smaller than
denominator. Example: 3/5
– Improper fraction: numerator is larger than
the denominator. Example: 5/3
– A decimal is a fraction with the division
carried out.
– A decimal is a fraction expressed in powers
of 10.

Algebraic Equations
– Variables are the symbols used to represent a measurement.
» For example; T is the variable for temperature while t is the
variable for time.
– To isolate one variable of an equation remember to divide if the
unwanted variable is on top and to multiply if the variable is on
the bottom. An asterisk * represents multiplication.
» A = B / C
» to isolate C first rearrange the equation to it will read C=?
Do this by multiplying both sides by C (since it is on the
bottom of a fraction (denominator).
» C * A = B * C / C note: C/C = 1
» C * A = B
» Now to isolate C we need to divide by A (it is on top of a
fraction; A/1 = A)
» C * A / A = B / A
» Remember: what ever you do to one side you must do it to
the other side.
» C = B / A

Algebraic Equations
– When multiplication & division is mixed with adding & subtracting,
try the multiplication or division first.
» (A - D) / (C + F) = B
» to solve for C, first rearrange the equation to it will read
C=? Do this by multiplying both sides by C + F (since it is
on the bottom of a fraction (denominator).
» (A - D) * (C + F) / (C + F) = B * (C + F)
» (A - D) = B * (C + F)
» Now to isolate C we need to divide by B
» (A - D) / B = B * (C + F) / B
» (A - D) / B = C + F
» Now you can subtract F from both sides.
» [(A - D) / B] - F = C + F - F
» [(A - D) / B] - F = C
» which is the same as C = [(A-D) / B] -F
If A = 8, D = 2, B = 3, & F = 7
then C must = [(8-2) / 3] - 7 = -5
Mathematical Review
Exponents
– An exponent is a number written as a superscript.
• X2 is X-squared or “X to the power of 2”
– The base (X) is multiplied by itself the number of times
represented in the exponent(superscript, 2 in this example).
• 23 or two cubed (2 is the base and 3 is the exponent)
• 23 is 2 * 2 * 2 = 4 * 2 = 8
– A positive exponent represents a large number (greater than
one).
• 1 x 103 is 10 *10 *10 = 1000 thousand
– A negative exponent represents a small number (less than one).
• 1 x 10-3 is (1/10) * (1/10) * (1/10) = 0.001 thousandths
– When multiplying numbers written with exponents, add the
exponents. If dividing then subtract the exponents.
• x4 * x6 = x
(4+6)
= x10 or (2 x 103)(3 x 106) = 6 x 10(3+6) = 6 x 109
• 2x6/7x3 = 0.2857 x(6-3) = 0.2857 x3
