Numbers, Sequences, Factors Integers: . . . , -3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3, . . . Rationals: fractions, that is, anything expressable as a ratio of integers Reals: integers plus rationals plus special numbers such as 2, 3 and π Order Of Operations: PEMDAS (Parentheses / Exponents / Multiply / Divide / Add / Subtract) Arithmetic Sequences: each term is equal to the previous term plus d Sequence: t 1 , t 1 + d , t 1 + 2 d , . . . Example: d = 4 and t 1 = 3 gives the sequence 3, 7, 11, 15, . . . Geometric Sequences: each term is equal to the previous term times r Sequence: t 1 , t 1 · r , t 1 · r 2 , . . . Example: r = 2 and t 1 = 3 gives the sequence 3, 6, 12, 24, . . . Factors: the factors of a number divide into that number without a remainder Example: the factors of 52 are 1, 2, 4, 13, 26, and 52 Multiples: the multiples of a number are divisible by that number without a remainder Example: the positive multiples of 20 are 20, 40, 60, 80, . . . Percents: use the following formula to ±nd part, whole, or percent part = percent 100 × whole Example: 75% of 300 is what? Solve x = (75 / 100) × 300 to get 225 Example: 45 is what percent of 60? Solve 45 = ( x/ 100) × 60 to get 75% Example: 30 is 20% of what? Solve 30 = (20 / 100) × x to get 150 www.erikthered.com/tutor pg. 1

Averages, Counting, Statistics, Probability average = sum of terms number of terms average speed = total distance total time sum = average × (number of terms) mode = value in the list that appears most often median = middle value in the list (which must be sorted) Example: median of { 3 , 10 , 9 , 27 , 50 } = 10 Example: median of { 3 , 9 , 10 , 27 } = (9 + 10) / 2 = 9 . 5 Fundamental Counting Principle: If an event can happen in N ways, and another, independent event can happen in M ways, then both events together can happen in N × M
