# Math Vocabulary 8

### SLO VOCAB set 1

Term | Definition |
---|---|

absolute value | the distance between a number and zero on a number line |

additive identity | zero |

y-intercept | the y-coordinate of a point where a line crosses the y-axis also known as "b" |

zero of a function | an x-value for which f(x) = 0 (or y = 0) |

whole number | the set of natural (counting) numbers and zero |

volume | a measurement of the space that would fill an object |

additive inverse | the opposite of a number |

algebraic expression | contains numbers, variables, and operations |

area | a measurement of the space an object covers |

associative property | a(b x c) = (a x b)c OR x + (y + Z) = (x + y) + z |

axis of symmetry | a line that passes through the vertex and divides the parabola into two symmetric parts |

base | the number in a power that represents the factor being repeatedly multiplied |

binomial | a polynomial with two terms |

coefficient | the number part of a term with a variable part |

commutative property | a + b = b + a OR m + n = n + m |

complementary angles | two or more angles that have a sum of 90 degrees |

composite number | a whole number with factors other than one and itself |

compound inequality | two inequalities joined by and or or |

conclusion | the "then" part of a conditional statement |

conditional statements | contain a hypothesis and conclusion |

congruent | equal in size |

constant term | a term in an expression or equation that has no variable part |

converse | a statement formed by interchanging the hypothesis and the conclusion of a conditional statement |

correlation | the relationship between paired data, it can be positive, negative , or relatively no |

constant term | a term that contains a number but no variable part |

counterexample | an example used to show that an if -then statement is false |

cross products property | can be used to solve for an unknown value in a proportion a/b = c/d is the same as ad = bc |

denominator | the number below the fraction bar that show s the number of equal-sized parts the whole has been divided into |

dependent variable | the output of a function, y, range of a function |

direct variation | y = ax when a does not equal zero |
