What is a "consecutive integer"?

Integers that differ by 1:
(n, n+1, n+2...) 

What is a "prime number"?

A Positive integer greater than 1 that are divisible by only 1 and themselves: 2,3,5,7,11...


What is a "composite" number?

An integer, other than 0, 1, or 1, which are not prime.

How do you change an improper fraction to a mixed number?

You divide the numerator by the denominator. The remainder becomes the numerator of the fractional part of the mixed number, adn the denominator remains the same: 35/4= 35 divided by 4= 8 3/4


How do you find the sum of fractions that have a common denominator?

Add the numerators, put that sum over the common denominator.


How do you find the sum of two fractions that have different denominators?

Find the lowest common denominator (LCD). Multiply the numerator and denominator by the number necessary to make the LCD. Add numerators and put over the new common denominator.


How do you find the product of two or more fractions?

You multiply the numerators and denominators straight across.


How do you find the quotient of two fractions?

Flip over the divisor and multiply straight across.


What is a "complex fraction"?
