1. Parentheses and other grouping symbols
2. Exponents
3. Multiply & divide left-right
4. Add & subtract left-right

2

What three things can describe an irrational number?

1.A decimal with 3 dots
2.An imperfect square root
3. Pi

3

What is meant by like terms

A term with the same variables and same exponents

4

Define absolute value

The distance of a number from 0 and it must be positive

5

How does one tell whether an equation has one answer, infinitely many, or no answers

One answer- x=4
Infinitely many answers- 3=3
No answer- 4=3

6

What is a conversion factor

A ratio that is equal to 1 used to convert units of measure ex: 1kg
_______
100g

7

How do we find the percent of increase or decrease

|original - new|
__________________
Original

8

Describe what happens when we divided an inequality by a negative number on each side

The inequality sign flips

9

What two words join compound inequalities

And, or

10

1. In an absolute value inequality, < is what type of sentence

2. > is what type of sentence

1. And

2. Or

11

An "and" sentence shows ______________ and an "or" sentence shows _________

Intersection

Union

12

Explain how y=|x-2|+4 is graphed

The parent absolute value graph is shifted to the right 2 and up 4

13

Tell how to find the domain and range of a relation and how to determine whether it is a function

20

What is point slope form of a line

Y-y1=m(x-x1)

21

What is standard form of a line

Ax+by=c
ABC must be integers

I order to have an equation of a line, what two things must one have

1. Slope
2. Point

23

Slopes of parallel lines have __________ slopes, and perpendicular lines have ____________ slopes

Same, negative reciprocal

24

What does the correlation coefficient or "r" tell is

How closely the data fits the line of recognition you want it to be close to one

25

How do the lines look in a system of 2 or more equations with infinitely many answers
In a system with no solution

No solution they are parallel

26

How do we know where to color a linear inequality on a coordinate plane

Less then below
Greater than above

2. Exponential decay

Growth
Y=a(1+r)^t

Decay
Y=a(1-r)^t

34

Use distributive twice

35

Give five statements to decide what method one would use to factor a polynomial

Try common minomial

If two parts try difference of squares

If three parts with understood one try factor pairs
