What are the three ways to represent rations and proportions? Use x and y as your variables
x/y
x:y
x to y

Keep in mind that the order in which the two numbers in the ratio appear is important; they cannot be reversed and have the ratio mean the same thing.
What is the definition of proportion? What is the good trick for solving proportions?
A proportion in volves ratios. Simply, it is a statement in which two ratios are set equal to each other. A good trick in solving proportions is to CROSS MULTIPLY.

ie. 3/4 = 12/x

can be crossed multiplied resulting in 3x = 48. x = 16
How do you calculate the range in this set: 2,3,4,4,4,5,6,9,10,11,11,11,12,14,17

How many modes are there?
Calculate the range by subtracting the least value in a set from the greatest value.

17 - 2, or 15

There are two modes:

4 and 11 because they appear the most frequently.
What are sets?
simply, a set is a group of numbers or "elements," (i.e., objects other than numbers). In order to deal with sets on the test, you should know the terminology and notation used to describe them.
How are the number of elements in a set notated?
|P|

The set itself is often notated as a list of elements, which do not have to be ordered sequentially. For example, P = {-8, -2, 0, 4} or P = {-2, 3 -8, 0}. In this particular set, |P| = 4 b/c there are 4 elements.
If ALL of the ELEMENTS in one set are also elements of another, that set can be called a ______ of the other.
"subset"

For example, set P= {-8, -2, 0, 4} is a subset of Q = {-8, -2, 0, 3, 4, 9, 12}.
What does the "union" of two sets mean?
A "union" of two sets is a set of all of the elements that are in one set, the other set, or both sets.
NOtated: PUQ
What does the "intersect" of the two sets mean?
An "intersection" of two sets is a set of all of the elements that are in both sets. THis is notated: P (upside down U) Q
If two sets that have no overlap are said to be ...
mutually exclusive.
PUQ =
|P| + |Q| - |P(upside down U)Q|
What rule applies if the sets are mutually exclusive?
|PUQ| = |P| + |Q|
What are three top counting methods that make counting easier?
Factorials, permutations, and combinations
What is factorial?

What is the factor rule?
If an integer n is great than 1, n factorial is equal to all integers from 1 to n multiplied together.

For example:

4! = 1*2*3*4= 24

Another
rule is: 0! = 1! = 1
How are factorials often used?
to determine the number of different ways that sets can be ordered. For example, consider the number of ways that you can order the letters F, G, and H:

FGH, FHG, GFH, GHF, HFG, and HGF.

This is equal to 3!, or 6, and these different orders are called "permutations" of the set of letters.
What is a permutation? How can they generally be written?
The different orders a set can be arranged. Permutations are processes by which objects are selected one at a time in a specific order.

Generally written:

n(n-1)(n-2)...(3)(2)(1)= n!
In addition to thinking about ordering, you can think of permutations as selections; what you're really doing is choosing each "set member" one by one, in a specific order. If you want to select only certain set members and not others, you have to use an equation involving a smaller set, noted as ____
k

The ways of selecting that subset from the bigger set are called COMBINATIONS and are noted this way:

(n over k)
How are combinations calculated?
The value of (n over k) is calculated this way:

(n over k) = (n! / k!(n-k)!)

Basically, this will calculate the number of subsets with k number of elements within a set that has n elements.

i.e.: S = {V, W, X, Y, Z}. The number of 3-element subsets of S, or the number of combinations of 5 letters taken 3 at a time is, 5!/ 3!(5-3)! = 120/(3)(2)(2) = 10. So, you can make 10 different groups of 3 letters from the 5 letters in set S.
When you are asked to find the number of possible combinations for multiple groups____
just multiply the number of possible combinations for each group.
What are the most important probability concepts you'll need to know?
1. Experiment: a test that has a specific number of outcomes.
2. Outcome: one possible result of an experiment. An experiment may have multiple possible outcomes.
3. Event: a particular set of outcomes.
What is an experiment?
1. Experiment: a test that has a specific number of outcomes.
What is an outcome?
2. Outcome: one possible result of an experiment. An experiment may have multiple possible outcomes.
What is an event?
3. Event: a particular set of outcomes.
EQUATION: For an experiment that has the SAME likelihood for each individual event, the probability of an event X happening is:
P(X) = The number of outcomes of X / The Total number of possible outcomes.

i.e. Consider the experiment of rolling 12-sided die. This experiment has 12 possible outcomes (1-12). One possible EVENT is that you will roll a 7 (this is the outcome, which is written inside curly brackets: {7}).

Another possible EVENT is that you will roll an even number. There are 6 such outcomes: {2,4,6,8,10,12} (Ryan: this kind of looks like a set). So according to our equation the probability of rolling an even number is:

P({2,4,6,8,10,12}) = |
{2,4,6,8,10,12}| / 12 = 6/12 = 1/2
Like with permutations, the probability of multiple events occurring calls for multiplying the separate probabilities together.

See example
The probability of rolling an even number on a 12-sidded die twice in a row is 1/2 x 1/2 = 1/4
PROBABILITY OF DEPENDENT EVENTS: the probability for the "dependent event" will have to be adjusted based on the fraction of the first event.

See example
For example, if you want to know the probability of choosing 2 red cards out of a 52-card deck, you would multiply the probability of choosing the first card: # of outcomes of red/total # of cards) 26/52 = 1/2 ...multiply this by the probability of choosing a red card out of the same deck without REPLACING the first: 25/51. So the probability of choosing 2 red cars is (1/2)(25/51) = 25/102

AWESOME!!
A gumball machine contains only cherry, grape, lemon and orange gumballs in a ratio of 5:4:3:2:1. Which of the following could equal the total number of gumballs in the machine?
The actual number of gumballs must be a multiple of the ratio total 5+4+3+1 = 13.

Now you just have to find the answer choice that's a multiple of 13.

Answer 52
What is the subtracting 1 rule with probability problems?
The probability that an event occurs + the probability that the event does NOT occur must equal 1.

For example if the probability that event A is 65% then the probability that even A does NOT occur is 35%.
When do you know that you should use the subtracting 1 rule with probability problems?
If a probability question involves multiple scenarios where there are significantly fewer way for an event NOT to occur, you should consider finding the probability that the event does NOT occur and then subtract 1.
THE last digit squared rule.

An amazing trick when trying to narrow down two possible answers.
"The last digit of the square of an integer x is the same as the last digit of the square of its last digit."

i.e. which one is square root 7744?

88 or 86

The last digit of 88 is 8. Square that, 8^2, you get, 64. Notice the last digit of 64, is 4. Which matches last digit of square root 7744.

Square root the last digit in 86. 6^2 = 36. The last digit of 36 is 6. 6 does not match the last digit of sqrt.7744.

Choice 88 is the correct answer.
What is the trick with this problem?

20% of A = 40% of B = 60% of C = 80% of D; B/D = C/A*x; solve for x.
Get everything to variable A because A = everything . Once you get everything in terms of A you can plug and chug then cancel out the A's.

1) Any side of a triangle cannot be shorter than the difference of the other two sides.

2) Any side of a triangle cannot be longer than the sum of the other two sides.

7 + x = 12
x = 5 ( so we know that the answer can't be shorter or equal to 5)

7+12 = 19 (We know that x cannot be longer than 19)

C is the answer.

Comparing fractions. List your plan of attack
1) Fastest way is to compare them to 1/2 as the base line.

2) Take difference between numerator and denominator
-> Bigger Difference = largest fractions
-> If same Difference = the largest numerator wins

3) Narrowed down to two numbers. Cross multiply and focus on the numerator
-> Biggest numerator wins.
What does percent mean?
per
cent = 100
-> per 100

How many of something you have per 100 of total
What is the percent verbage?
% = is/of x 100
What is the most effective method for solving for percents?
Solve for the "is"

% =is/of x 100
What is the percentage break down method?

What is 18% of 250
Break down numbers to percentages we can easily do in our head.

10% of 250 = 25
1% of 250 = 2.5

So.. 10% +10% -1% -1% = 18%

25+25-2.5-2.5 = 45 (BAMB!)
What if we are not solving for "is" when talking about percentages?

Look at: 176 is what percentage of 22?
1) Write down your mnemonic
% = is/of x 100

2) % = 176/22 x 100

Better to understand this in your head
1) what is 100% of 22 = 22
=> so we know the number will be way over 100%

2) Give yourself some easy parameters.
10x22 = 220
5x22 = 110

So we know the answer will be between 700-800. you are done if you can find that.
What does each of these mean?

300%
1000%
100% = Full value
200% = x2 full value
300% = x3 full value

176 is what percentage of 22?
Do this in your head, by making them into nice numbers.

176/22 x 100

I decrease numerator to 20. Which creates a small amount of error.
-> Decrease to numerator to minimize the error.

But in this case we know that 178 is closer to 180.

If you:
1) Make the numerator bigger the # is going to be a little bit high. .

2) make the denominator smaller the # is a little high.

So...our approximate answer will come out a little high.

So - ACTUAL answer will be a little low, but close to ours.

what steps would you take if you saw this problem?

$1,200 increased by 20% then decreased by 20%
This method helps you know what side of the equation you will be on.

Since same percentage you know that the percent decrease will be greater than the percent increase. So in your answer you will be looking for something less than the starting amount.

If it asked you to decrease by 20% then increase by 20% the answer will still be below the actual value
