An expression of the form , where each variable has a constant accompanying it as its coefficient is called a polynomial of degree ‘n’ in variable x. Each variable separated with an addition or subtraction symbol in the expression is better known as term. Degree is defined as the maximum power of the variable of […]

## What Do You Mean By The Complement Of...

Complement of a set Before studying about the Complement of s set, let us understand what sets are? A well-defined collection of objects or elements is known as a set. Any set consisting of all the objects or elements related to a particular context is defined as a universal set. It is represented by . […]

## Binary Operation

The basic operations of mathematics- addition, subtraction, division and multiplication are performed on two operands. Even when we try to add three numbers, we add two of them and then add the third number to the result of the two numbers. Thus, the basic mathematical operations are performed on two numbers and are known as […]

## Number System

What is number system? A number system is a system of writing for expressing numbers. It is the mathematical notation for representing numbers of a given set by using digits or other symbols in a consistent manner. It provides a unique representation to every number and represents the arithmetic and algebraic structure of the figures. […]

There is an old saying that goes like this: “Tell me and I will forget, Show me and I may remember, involve me and I will understand.” Said by the Chinese philosopher, Confucius. Today’s generation demand an interactive learning model that will engage them and make them learn the facts in a easy way. Earlier, […]

## Applications Of Decimal In Daily Life

We use decimals every day, while dealing with money, weight, length etc. Decimal numbers are used in situations where more precision is required, than the whole numbers can provide. For example, when we calculate our weight on the weighing machine, we do not always find the weight equal to a whole number on the scale. […]

## Conditional Probability: Bayes’ Theor...

Bayes’ theorem describes the probability of occurrence of an event related to any condition. For example: if we have to calculate the probability of taking a blue ball from the second bag out of three different bags of balls, where each bag contains three different color balls viz. red, blue, black. Such case where probability […]

## Trigonometry

Introduction to Trigonometry Trigonometry is defined as one of the branches of mathematics that deals with the relationships that involve lengths and also the angles of triangles. In a simple manner, we can say that Trigonometry is the study of triangles. The word trigonometry was derived from the Greek word, where, ‘TRI‘ means Three, ‘GON‘ […]

## Triangle Inequality Theorem

A polygon bounded by three line segments is known as the Triangle. It is the smallest possible polygon. A triangle has three sides, three vertices, and three interior angles. Triangle Inequality Theorem The triangle inequality theorem describes the relationship between the three sides of a triangle. According to this theorem, for any triangle, the sum […]

## Trigonometric Functions

Trigonometry is composed of two words: Trigon and Metron. Trigon means ‘triangle’ and metron means ‘to measure’. Combined, it means measuring sides or angles of a triangle and that is what trigonometry precisely is. It is the study of angles of triangles and relationships between them. Trigonometric Functions can be defined as ‘The functions which […]
