ASVAB Math - Reciprocals - Chapter Summary
The text and lessons in this chapter focus on the steps you'll need to take to divide radical expressions or take the reciprocal of a rational expression. Work through the lessons and then demonstrate your knowledge of reciprocals on the math portion of the ASVAB military examination. When you finish this chapter, you could:
- Define reciprocals and provide some examples
- Learn to use rational numbers
- Find the reciprocal of a radical
- Discover the steps for simplifying radicals
The instructors in these lessons will provide you with tools and techniques for learning about reciprocals. You can submit questions and use the video tags to go back and study any part of the videos. Use the handy self-assessment quizzes to measure your knowledge of reciprocals and ensure your readiness for the ASVAB Math examination.
ASVAB Math - Reciprocals Objectives
The Mathematical Knowledge and Arithmetic Reasoning sections of the ASVAB test assess your math proficiency in several areas. The multiple-choice Mathematics Knowledge subtest evaluates your knowledge of high school-level math principles, such as algebra, fractions, inequalities, reciprocals, rational numbers and sequences. Once you've studied this chapter, you might be able to successfully answer questions on reciprocals.
