What are Real Numbers? When you are first learning to do math with numbers, you never think about what “kinds” of numbers you use. You just add 2 plus 2, or subtract 10 from 20, and later on begin to multiply (3) times (5) (refer to Multiplying Integers here) and other, more complicated functions. What …

The Theorem of Pythagoras is a specific case of the Cosine Law that applies specifically to right angle triangles. With it, and given any two sides of a right angle triangle, you can find the third side. Then having solved all the sides of the triangle, you can use the standard trig identities (Sine, Cosine, [...]

The Cosine Law works similarly to the Sine Law that I have already discussed. Actually, it may seem somewhat familiar to you. While the Cosine Law can be used on any triangle, the Pythagorean Theorem is a specific case of the Cosine Law which strictly applies to right angle triangles. It’s a bit more of [...]

What is the difference between PRECISION and ACCURACY? Upon first glance, many students would say that the two terms mean the same thing. In normal daytoday usage, you would talk about how precise this is, or how accurate that is, and in both cases you would be comparing “how close” some thing is to the …

I have recently been asked to explain why two negative numbers multiply together to product a positive number. This can be a difficult concept to grasp at first, but I would like to try to simplify an explanation. First, I would like to recommend and give credit to David’s website, at PracticAll. In particular, he …
