The internet can be a powerful ally when you are trying to figure out how to solve a problem.
When you click on Section 3.1, Section 3.2 etc. on the right-hand navigation bar in MyMathLab there
are 4 areas that appear to the right:
Lecture and Text - many
Understand basic mathematical definitions.
Simplify fractions to lowest terms using prime numbers.
Convert between improper fractions and mixed numbers.
Change a fraction to an equivalent fraction
Percents, Rounding, and Estimating
Change a decimal to a percent.
Change a percent to a decimal.
Find the percent of a given number.
Find the missing percent when given two numbers.
Use rounding to e
Mercantilism was an economic philosophy that the colonies used to help provide funds for
England. It was a system of manufacturing and trade that involved goods that imported and
exported textile products, gold, silver and other goods which ai
Linear Inequalities in Two Variables
Determining whether an ordered pair is a solution to a linear inequality in 2 variables:
Plug the x value in for the x
Plug the y value in for the y
If the resulting statement is true, the ordered pair is a solution.
Graphing Linear Inequalities
First, pretend its =
If you have an inequality like 2x + 3y > 6
First figure out how to graph 2x + 3y = 6
These are easiest to do if you solve for y
3 y 2 x 6
Remember the slope-intercept equation of a line
Rational Exponents: exponents that are fractions. They are another way of writing
Notice that the bottom of the fraction is the index.
Notice that the top of the fraction is the power:
252 = 2
When you answer these, please incorporate enough of the question so that we all can tell
what youre talking about without having to open this file.
Simply saying #40 All of them is not very informative!

Graphing Linear Equations
the slope-intercept method
The slope-intercept equation
The slope-intercept equation of a line is
y = mx + b
m is the slope of the line
b is the y-intercept
(where the graph crosses the y-axis)
Graph using slope-intercept: 5 y
Solving Systems of Equations by Elimination
Elimination always works: If you find that you like this method, you can always use it.
x + y =
x y =10
2x = 30
x = 15
Equation 2: 15 y = 10
y = 10 15

Slope is a measure of how slanted a line is.
the line goes uphill from left to right.
the line goes downhill from left to right.
Slope of zero:
the line is horizontal (flat).
the line is v
