1 The verbal answers to all of the following questions should be memorized before completion of pre-algebra. Answers that are not memorized will hinder your ability to succeed in algebra 1. Number Basics What are the first six place values to the left of the decimal point? Ones, tens, hundreds, one thousands, ten thousands, hundred thousands. What are the main place value groupings to the left of the decimal point? Ones, thousands, millions, billions, trillions, etc. What are the first three place values to the right of the decimal point? Tenths, hundredths, thousandths. How do you round numbers? Look one digit to the right of the place you are rounding to. If that digit is a 0-4, round down. If that digit is a 5-9, round up. examples: Round 87 to the nearest ten. 90 Round 54,918 to the nearest ten thousand. 50,000 Round to the nearest tenth How do you compare numbers? On a number line, larger numbers are to the right and smaller numbers are to the left. What is the meaning of an exponent? The base needs to be multiplied by itself the number of times of the exponent. 5 example: 2 = = 2 What is the rule for order of operations? PEMDAS. Parenthesis first, exponents next, then multiplication and division left to right, finally addition and subtraction left to right = = = = 17 example: ( ) How do you approximate a square root of a number? The square root of a given number will be a number between the square roots of the two closest perfect square numbers. example: The 12 will be a number between the 9 = and the 16 = 4. Decimals How do you add decimals? Align the decimal points. Add right to left, carrying as necessary example: = = Pre-Algebra (page 1/9)

2 How do you subtract decimals? Align the decimal points. Subtract right to left, borrowing as necessary. example: = 4.8 = 4.8 = How do you multiply decimals? Multiply normally. The sum of the number of decimal places gives the new number of decimal places. example: = How do you multiply decimals by powers of ten? Shift the decimal place to the right by the numbers of zeros in the power of ten. example: ,000 = 124,050. Where are the dividend, divisor, and quotient located in a division problem? quotient divisor dividend How do you divide decimals? Eliminate decimals in the divisor. Shift the decimal point the same number of places in the dividend. Divide normally. 7.9 example: = = How do you divide decimals by powers of ten? Shift the decimal place to the left by the numbers of zeros in the power of ten. example: ,000 = How do you write a number in scientific notation? Starting at the left, put a decimal point to the right of the 1 st nonzero number. Count the number places the decimal point moved. If the number got smaller, the exponent on the ten will be positive. If the number got larger, the exponent on the ten will be negative. 4 6 examples: a) 48,000 = b) = Signed Numbers What does absolute value do to a number? Absolute value makes numbers positive. examples: 5 = 5, 8 = 8 How do you add signed numbers? If the numbers are the same sign, add the numbers and keep the sign. If the numbers are different signs, subtract the numbers and keep the sign of the larger magnitude number. examples: + 8 = 5, = 6 Pre-Algebra (page 2/9)

3 How do you subtract signed numbers? (Subtracting a negative number is the same as adding a positive number. Subtracting a positive number is the same as adding a negative number.) If the numbers are the same sign, add the numbers and keep the sign. If the numbers are different signs, subtract the numbers and keep the sign of the larger magnitude number. examples: 8 = + 8 = 5, 8 2 = = 10, 6 7 = = 1 How do you multiply signed numbers? Multiply normally. If the numbers have the same sign, the answer is positive. If the numbers have different signs, the answer is negative. examples: 2 4 = 8, 6 = 18, 5 4 = 20 How do you divide signed numbers? Divide normally. If the numbers have the same sign, the answer is positive. If the numbers have different signs, the answer is negative. examples: 2 4 = 8, 0 2 = 15, 12 2 = 6 Factors and Multiples What is a factor? A factor is a number that divides evenly into another number. example: 4 is a factor of 20. What is the greatest common factor of two numbers? The largest number that divides evenly into both numbers. example: 12 is the greatest common factor of 24 and 6. What is a prime number? A number having exactly two factors. example: 11 is a prime number since 11 is divisible evenly by only 1 and 11. What is a composite number? A number having more than two factors. example: 10 is a composite number since its factors are 1, 2, 5, and 10. What is the prime factorization of a number? A number written as the product of only prime numbers. 4 example: The prime factorization of 80 is = 2 5 What is a multiple?

Multiply the numerators. Multiply the denominators. example: 15 4 = 1 = How do you divide fractions? Multiply by the reciprocal fraction. example: 1 = 1 4 = 1 2 = Pre-Algebra (page 4/9)

5 How do you convert a mixed number into an improper fraction? Multiply the denominator by the whole number and add the numerator. Leave the denominator the same example: = = How do you convert an improper fraction into a mixed number? Divide the numerator by the denominator. The result is the whole number and the remainder is the numerator of the fraction. The denominator stays the same. 5R example: = 4 21 = How do you convert a fraction into a decimal? Divide the numerator by the denominator. 0.6 example: = = How do you convert a mixed number into a decimal? The whole number stays the same. Convert the fraction into a decimal and combine it with the whole number example: = + = = = How do you convert a decimal into a mixed number? The part to the left of the decimal becomes the whole number. The part to the right of the decimal is written as a fraction and then simplified example: = 12 + = 12 + = How do you add mixed numbers? Add the fraction parts (carrying if necessary). Add the whole number parts example: = = = 6 + = = = 7 + = How do you subtract mixed numbers? Subtract the fraction parts (borrowing if necessary). Subtract the whole number parts example: 4 2 = 4 2 = 2 = How do you multiply mixed numbers? Convert to improper fractions. Multiply the improper fractions.
