How do you make a decimal into a fraction? Put it over the number of place values after the decimal point, simplify fraction if necessary.
How do you add and subtract fractions? Make a common denominator then add/subtract
How do you multiply Fractions? Multiply the numerators together, followed by the denominator.
How do you divide Fractions? Turn the 2nd fraction then time.
How do you add mixed numbers? Add together the mixed numbers, then make a common denominator and add together the fractions. Then add together the whole number and the fraction
How do you Subtract mixed numbers? First subtract the second whole number by the first, then subtract the second fraction by the first.
How do you multiply mixed numbers? Write as an improper fraction then times.
How do you divide mixed numbers? Write as an improper fraction, swap round the 2nd fraction and times.
Mixed numbers into improper fractions? Times the whole number by the denominator then add the numerator.
Multiplying decimal numbers? Make the decimal a whole number, then times. But because you timed the decimal you need to undo the operation by dividing the answer by 10, 100, 1000 etc.
How do you add and subtract decimals? Line up the decimals under each other then add/subtract.
Expressing 1 quantity as a percentage as another? Place the two numbers over each other as a fraction and times by 100, turn into a mixed fraction then a percentage.
Making a fraction into a percentage? Change into decimal than percetage.
How do you multiply a single bracket? Everything inside the bracket must be multiplied by the number or term outside the bracket.
What is pi? 3.1415926 (Area of a circle) Pi, r squared.
Directed numbers rules? + + = +- - = +- + = -+ - = -
What is a perimeter? All the sides ADDED together
How do you simplify expression with brackets? BIDMAS
Area of a triangle? 1/2 Base x height
Area of a square? Length of side Squared
Area of a rectangle? Breadth x Height
Area of a Parrallelogram? Breadth x Height
Area of a Trapezoid? Length of the top side + The base divided by 2 timed by Vertical height
Area of a circle? Pi r squared
Volume of a cuboid? Height × Width × Length
Volume of a cube? Height x width x length
Volume of cylinder? Find the area of thr circle than times it by the height.
Volume of a prism? Area if cross section x length
How do you Round? Identify the posistion of the last digit, look at the digit to the right. If the decider is 5 or more you round up if the decider is 4 or less you leave the digit as it is.
What is a significant figure? Sig fig approach from the left and start counting as soon as you meet the non zero figure. Once you have started counting any figure including zero is significant.
