Practical Algebra Lessons
Hey guys so I am teaching myself math from the start. But I don't know if I am getting it right or not.
So the first thing I came up to was Square Numbers.
Is it right that you multiply by itslf. So 22 (can't do the little 2 above it) would be 4?
The next one I did was Fractions, this is where I am lost.
So 3/5 = 2 is that right, is it just taking the top number from the bottom number? I am confused here, and if we get a question about fraction would it be like 4/7=3 or would it be in a diffrent way?
ok so the last one is Exponents.
Is it just multiplying the number by how many time the little number shows? so
33 = 12?
Thanks so much guys I hope this is what this forum is for, if it is it would be a gift from GOD!!!
Thanks so much!!
Means ' out of ', which is to say that is you split a cake into pieces, you would have of them. Numerically speaking it's a way of saying ' divided by ' which can be written in decimal form as 0.6 through short division.
Hope it helped.
