A set of fractions that are equal to each other.

2/8 is equivalent to 1/4.

factors of 2 = 1, 2

factors of 8 = 1, 2, 4, 8

Greatest Common Factor = 2

2 ÷ 2 = 1

8 ÷ 2 = 4

A whole number and a fraction together as one number.

5 ½ is a mixed number.

The numerator (the top number) is more (larger) than the denominator (the bottom number).

18/2 is an improper fraction.

Any fraction less than 1.

The numerator (the top number) is always less than the denominator (the bottom number).

So, 3/5 and 7/9 are proper fractions.

Also called a terminating decimal; it does not repeat and is not continuous.

1.25 is a finite decimal

And an infinite decimal is a repeating decimal 0.33333… is an infinite decimal.

Determines number value depending on the position of the number; each position has a value of Power of 10.

Rule that states in which order to complete operations;

PEMDAS - parenthesis, exponents, multiplication, division, addition, and subtraction.

10 as a base to use with an exponent.

10 with an exponent of 0 = 1

10 with an exponent of 1 = 10

10 with an exponent of 2 = 100

10 with an exponent of 3 = 1,000

10 with an exponent of 4 = 10,000

It is the number that gets multiplied by itself the amount of times the exponent states.

In 4³, 4 is the **base of the exponent** 3.

An **exponent** tells you how many times to multiply a number by itself.

In 5², 2 is the **exponent**.

Axis is the line of reference for the measurement of coordinates or points.

One line is an axis.

Two intersecting lines are axes.

With a pair of coordinates, or ordered pair of numbers, the x-coordinate is the first value written;

in the coordinates (5, 4), 5 would be the x-coordinate.

With a pair of coordinates, or ordered pair of numbers, the y-coordinate is the second value written;

in the coordinates (2, 6), 6 would be the y-coordinate.

A solid figure is a figure that has three dimensions (3D);

it has length, width, and height - like a cube or box.
