Definition When points or lines are arranged in some formation, rarely does it result in a recognizable geometric figure. Well-known shapes like squares and triangles are actually only subsets of larger groups of geometric figures and other collections of points in space. One of the easiest and most common collections of points in space is […]

Definition of decimals A fraction is that represents a part of a whole or in other words , any number of equal parts. This is the mathematical expression representing the division of one whole number by another. The two numbers separated by a horizontal or diagonal line, fractions are also used to indicate a part of a whole number […]

PERIMETER Perimeter is the distance around the edge of a figure or shape. In other words, distance around the outside of a shape, calculated by adding the length of all sides together.Watch PERIMETER VIDEO to learn more. The word perimeter means a path that surrounds an area. It comes from the Greek word ‘peri,’ meaning around, and […]

Simplification By “simplifying” an algebraic expression, we mean writing it in the most compact or efficient manner, without changing the value of the expression. This mainly involves collecting like terms, which means that we add together anything that can be added together. The rule here is that only like terms can be added together.Watch Simplification Video to learn […]
