Closure Property
Addition: a + b is a real number.
Mult: ab is a real number.
Add: a + b= b + a
Mult: ab= ba
Add: (a+b)+c = a+(b+c)
Mult: (ab)c=a(bc)
Add: a+0=a, 0+a=a
Mult: a*1=a, 1*a=a
Add: a +(-a)=0
Mult: a*(1/a)=1, a never = 0

2. Evaluate powers.
3. Do multiplications and divisions left to right.
4. Do additiond and subtractions fromleft to right.
Distance Formula

distance equals rate times time.
Simple Interest

Interest equals principal rate times time
F= 9/5C+ 32
Area of Triangle

Area equals 1/2 base times height
Area of Rectangle

Area equals length times width
Perimeter of Rectangle
P= 2l+2w
Area of Trapezoid
A= 1/2(b1+b2)h
Area of Circle
A= pie R squared
Circumference of Circle
C=2 pie R
M=(y2-y1)/ (x2-x1)
rise over run

Classification of lines by slope:
parallel: same
perpendicular: reciprocal
Horizontal: 0
Vertical: Undefined
Slope Intercept Form
y= mx+b
Point Slope Form
y-y1= m(x-x2)
Two Points
m= (y2-y1)/ (x2-x1)
Then y-y2= m(x-x2)

X coordinate of vertex
-b/ 2a
Axis of symmetry
Vertical line
x= -b/2a
Vertex Form of Quadratic Functions

vetex= (h,k)
Axis of symmetry x=h
Intercept Form of Quadratic
y= a(x-p)(x-q)

X intercepts= p and q
Axis of symm: halfway between
(p,0) and (q,0)
Complex Numbers
Square root of -r = i square root of r

i^2= -1
(i-/ r)^2= -r
Completing the square

1. Move constant to the right side of the equation
2. take 1/2 of b, square it, and add to both sides of the equation.
3. rewrite left side as binomial squared and simplify right side.
4. take square root of both sides.
5. solve for x and simplify.
