Solving for unknown angles is a category of math problems that usually concentrates on the properties of two-dimensional shapes. For example, solving for unknown angles with triangles relies on the fact that all triangles have three sides, which intersect to form three inside angles, and the sum of these three inside angles is always 180 degrees. In a typical problem asking one to solve for the unknown angle in a triangle, one will be given the values of two of the inside angles. The task is to understand that by adding together the quantities of the two known angles, and subtracting this sum from 180, one can determine the value of the unknown angle.
Factorization is a method of breaking down complex mathematical objects into simpler units (factors) that may be multiplied together to produce the original object. It is commonly used to simplify polynomials across many subdivisions of mathematics and science.
Exponentiation, a mathematical operation, corresponds to multiplication. Written with a base and an exponent. The base can be either a natural number or a negative integer. The exponent shows how many times to multiply the base with itself. Exponentiation is also called involution because you are raising a number to a power.
A polynomial is a mathematical expression consisting of variables and their coefficients and involving only addition, subtraction, multiplication, and non-negative exponents; a binomial is a polynomial which is the sum of two monomial terms. A polynomial can be divided by a binomial using long division.
Division is a mathematical operation and is one of the four basic functions in mathematics, the others being multiplication, addition, and subtraction. It is the inverse of multiplication and is denoted using this symbol / or this symbol ÷. Division involves splitting a number into smaller components. This can be as simple as calculating the number of times a small number makes up a larger number, so for example 6 divided by 2 is 3, as 6 is twice the number 3. In this example, the number 6 is the dividend or numerator, 2 is the divisor or denominator and the result 3 is called the quotient.
