additive identity property
For every number a,
a + 0 = 0 + a = a.
algebraic expression
An expression consisting of one of more numbers and variables along with one or more arithmetic operations.
associative property
For any numbers a, b, c,
(a+b)+c = a+(b+c) and
(ab)c = a(bc).
base
The number x in the expression x⁵.
coefficient
The numerical factor in a term.
commutative property
For any numbers a and b,
a+b = b+a, and
ab = ba.
dependent variable
The variable in a function whose value is determined by the independent variable.
distributive property
For any numbers a, b, and c,
a(b+c) = ab+ac.
domain
The set of all first coordinates from the ordered pairs in a relation.
equation
A mathematical sentence that contains an equal sign.
evaluate
To find the value of an expression when the values of the variables are known.
exponent
The number 5 in the expression x⁵.
factors
The quantities being multiplied in a multiplication expression.
function
A relation in which each element of the domain is paired with exactly one element of the range.
horizontal axis
The line in a graph that represents the independent variable.
multiplicative identity property
For any number a,
a•1 = 1•a = a.
multiplicative inverse property
For every nonzero number a/b, where a, b ≠ 0, there is exactly one number b/a such that
a/b • b/a = 1.
multiplicative property of zero
For any number a,
a•0 = 0•a = 0.
reflexive property of equality
For any number a,
a = a.
substitution property of equality
If a = b, then a may be replaced by b in any expression.
symmetric property of equality
For any numbers a and b,
if a = b, then b = a.
transitive property of equality
For any numbers a, b and c,
if a = b and b = c,
then a = c.
additive identity property
6 + 0 = 6
multiplicative identity property
44(1) = 44
multiplicative property of zero
9(0) = 0
multiplicative inverse property
(5/6)(6/5) = 1
reflexive property of equality
5 + a = 5 + a
symmetric property of equality
If (5)(6) = 30,
then 30 = (5)(6).
transitive property of equality
If 5 = 9 - 4 and 9 - 4 = 3 + 2,
then 5 = 3 + 2.
substitution property of equality
(14 - 5)2 = (9)2
distributive property of equality
6(x - 3) = 6x - 18
commutative property
(5 + 3) + 14 = 14 + (5 + 3)
