## How to Convert Percent to Decimal

Understanding Percentages and Decimals Percentages and decimals are two common ways to express values that are less than one. Percentages are typically used to express a fraction of 100, while decimals represent a fraction of one. For example, 50% is equivalent to 0.5 as a decimal. Understanding the relationship between percentages and decimals is important in a variety of contexts,…

## How to Do Long Division with Polynomials

Understanding the Basics of Polynomial Long Division Polynomial long division is an essential mathematical concept that is used in algebra to divide polynomials by other polynomials. It involves dividing a polynomial by another polynomial of lower degree to obtain a quotient and remainder. The quotient represents the exact division of the polynomials, while the remainder is the leftover polynomial that…

## How to Solve a Quadratic Equation

Understanding the Basics of Quadratic Equations A quadratic equation is a second-degree polynomial equation that contains one or more variables raised to the power of two. The general form of a quadratic equation is: ax² + bx + c = 0 Where a, b, and c are coefficients, and x is the variable. The value of x that satisfies the…

## How to Find the Domain of a Function

Identifying Restricted Values and Excluded Points In order to find the domain of a function, it is important to identify any restricted values or excluded points. Restricted values are values of the independent variable (usually denoted as x) for which the function is undefined, while excluded points are values for which the function is defined, but not included in the…

## How to Find the Volume of a Pyramid

Formulas for Finding the Volume of Different Types of Pyramids Once you have identified the type of pyramid you are dealing with, you can use the appropriate formula to find its volume. The volume of a pyramid is given by the formula: V = 1/3 × B × h where V is the volume, B is the area of the…

• ## How to Find an Asymptote: A Beginner’s Guide

Understanding the Concept of an Asymptote An asymptote is a line that a curve approaches but never touches. In other words, it is a line that a function gets arbitrarily close to as the independent variable (usually denoted as “x”) increases or decreases without bound. Asymptotes can be found in various mathematical functions such as rational, exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric…

## How to Find Interquartile Range

Understanding Quartiles and Percentiles In statistics, quartiles are values that divide a dataset into quarters or four equal parts. They are commonly used to describe the distribution of a dataset, especially when it is not normally distributed. The first quartile (Q1) is the value below which 25% of the data falls, while the third quartile (Q3) is the value below…

## How to Find Period

Finding Period in Simple Harmonic Motion Simple harmonic motion is a type of periodic motion that occurs when a system is subjected to a restoring force that is proportional to the displacement from equilibrium. This type of motion is seen in many physical systems such as a mass-spring system, a simple pendulum, and the motion of a mass on a…
