# The Number System

TermDefinition
Integer The whole numbers and their opposites.
Signed Number Positive and negative numbers.
Absolute Value The distance a number is from 0 on a number line
Additive Inverse A number that when added to another number gives the sum zero.
Commutative Property of Addition Numbers can be added in any order and the sum will remain the same. a + b = b + a
Associative Property of Addition Changing the grouping in which numbers are added, doesn't affect the result of the sum. (a + b) + c = c + (b + a)
Additive Property Any number added to 0 remains unchanged. a + 0 = a
Commutative Property of Multiplication Numbers can be multiplied in any order and the product will remain the same. a(b) = b(a)
Associative Property of Multiplication Changing the grouping in which numbers are multiplied, doesn't affect the result of the product. (a * b) * c = c * (b * a)
Distributive Property The property that states that multiplying a sum by a number is the same as multiplying each addend by the number and then adding the products. a x (b + c) = (a x b) + (a x c)
Multiplicative Identity Property You can multiply 1 to any number and it keeps its identity. The product remains the same. a * 1 = a
Zero Property of Multiplication The product of any number with zero is 0. a * 0 = 0
Complex Fraction A fraction with a fraction in the numerator and/or a fraction in the denominator.
Rational Number Repeating or terminating decimals; any decimal that can be written in fraction form.

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

• SPACEBAR - flip the current card
• LEFT ARROW - move card to the Don't know pile
• RIGHT ARROW - move card to Know pile
• BACKSPACE - undo the previous action

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
