New cards

Absolute Value

The distance a number is away from zero

New cards

New cards

Distance vs. Change

Distance is always positive

To find:

Find absolute value of difference (#'s can be in any order)

*OR*

Subtracting the smaller # from the larger #

____________________________________

Change in elevation/temperature may be pos. or neg. depending on if it's increasing or decreasing (going up or down)

Find just like distance, but pos. or neg. answer depending on direction

New cards

Commutative Property (addition and multiplication only)

You can swap numbers around and still get the same answer (Only for all adding or all multiplying)

**Order does not matter **

Examples:

-5 + 3 = 3 + -5

(4)(2) = (2)(4)

New cards

New cards

Associative Property (addition and multiplication only)

It doesn't matter how we group the numbers (i.e. which we calculate first)

You will still get the same answer. (Only for all adding or all multiplying)

Examples:

(3 + 4) + 5 = 3 + (4 + 5)

(3 x 4) x 5 = 3 x (4 x 5)

New cards

New cards

Distributive Property

The distributive property: we get the same answer when we:

added first, then multiply

5(1 + 3) = 5(4)= 20

**OR**

multiply each separately then add them

5(1 + 3) = 5(1) + 5(3) = 5 + 15 = 20

New cards

Identity Property of Addition

Adding zero to a number leaves it unchanged

Example:

-4 + 0 = -4

New cards

New cards

Identity Property of Multiplication

Multiplying a number by one leaves the number unchanged

Example:

3(1) = 3

New cards

New cards

Inverse Property of Addition

What you add to a number to get zero.

Example:

The additive inverse of -5 is 5

because -5 + 5 = 0.

The additive inverse will be the opposite sign.

New cards

Inverse Property of Multiplication

"When you multiply a number by its Multiplicative Inverse you get 1.

Example:

8 x (1/8) = 1

The multiplicative inverse is also called the reciprocal.

How do you change a decimal to a fraction?

Place the digits you see in the numerator

The denominator will be the place value that the last digit is in

Simplify

Example: 0.015 = 15/1000 = 3/200

New cards

New cards

How do you change a fraction to a decimal?

You can always divide the numerator (top) by the denominator (bottom)

**Remember:**

numerator goes in the house AND numerator goes in calculator first

OR:

Change the denominator to a power of ten. (This will not always work)

New cards

Adding and Subtracting Fractions

You MUST have a common denominator before you add or subtract fractions Follow rules for rational numbers once denominators are the same

New cards

New cards

Multiplying Fractions

*Don't get a common denominator*

Simplify a numerator with a denominator if you can

Multiply numerators together, then multiply denominators

Simplify the fraction if you can

New cards

New cards

Dividing Fractions

Remember: Dividing is the same as multiplying by the reciprocal

Change the division to multiplication

Flip the second fraction over

Follow the rules for multiplying fractions

New cards

New cards

Even/Odd Rule of Multiplication

If there are an even number of negative signs, the product will be positive.

Ex. -2 x -3 x -4 x -5 = 120

If there are an odd number of negative signs, the product will be negative.

Ex. -2 x -3 x -4 = -24

New cards

New cards

Order of Operations

MUST be followed when multiple operations are in an expression.

Following the Order of Operations:

Remember it with *PEMDAS*

1st *P*arentheses and brackets

2nd *E*xponents

3rd *M*ultiply or *D*ivide from left to right

4th *A*dd or *S*ubtract from left to right
