SURFACE AREA AND VOLUME OF SOLIDS math capsule

In this chapter we will study to find the surface area and volume of solid figure , like parallelepiped , cube, cuboid, cylinder , cone , frustum of cone , sphere and hemisphere and we will study to find the surface area and volume of combination of solid figures combination of two or more different or similar solid figures.

SOLID FIGURES

The objects which occupy space (i.e. they have three dimensions ) are called solids.
The solid figures can be derived from the plane figures.
e.g. In figure (i) , we have a paper cut in the form as shown. It is a plane figure. But when we fold the paper along the dotted lines, a box can be made as shown in figure (ii) , which occupies some part of the space. It has more than two dimensions and therefore it fulfils the criteria of being a solid figure.

SOLID FIGURES

RATIONAL EXPRESSIONS math capsule

Today we are going to study about  rational expressions,

RATIONAL EXPRESSIONS

An expression of the form p(x) / q (x) , where p(x) and q(x) are polynomials and q(x) ≠ 0 is called a rational expression.

* In the rational expression p(x) / q(x) , p(x) is called the numerator and q(x) is called the denominator of the rational expression.

* Every polynomial can be said to be rational expression. Since p(x) can always be written as p(x) / 1 .

* Every rational expression need not be a polynomial .

PROGRESSION : ARITHMETICAL PROGRESSION, GEOMETRIC PROGRESSION & HARMONIC PROGRESSION math capsule

Today we are going to learn about how the sequence of various numbers work and how we can trace out what number would follow after a certain number , or at a particular index,

PROGRESSION

Sequence following certain patterns are called progression.
e.g. 2,3,4,5,..... is a progression, here each term is interesting, here each term is increasing by 1.

ARITHMETICAL PROGRESSION

An arithmetic progression is a sequence in which the difference between any term and its just preceding term is constant through. The constant 'd' is called the common difference. The first term of AP is represented by 'a' and the formula for the xth term is 

aₓ = a + (x - 1) d

SURDS AND RADICALS math capsule

Today we are going to learn about surds and radicals  in this blog post .

Before beginning with 'surds and radicals' you should visit and revise the concepts of number system ,

NUMBER SYSTEM

So, lets begin with surds and radicals

Let x be a rational number and n be a positive number such that ⁿ√x is  irrational , then ⁿ√x is called a radical of order n or surd and here x is called the radicand.

* A surd of order 2 is called quadratic surd, i.e. √2
* A surd of order 3 is called a cubic surd i.e. ³√5
* A surd of order 4 is called a biquadratic surd
* A surd has no fraction under the radical sign .
* The radicand has no factor with exponent n.
* A surd is not equal to any surd of order lower than n.
* ⁿ√x is a surd only if x is a rational and ⁿ√x is irrational.
* When x is irrational or ⁿ√x is rational then ⁿ√x is not a surd.

NUMBER SYSTEM math capsule

Today we are going to study about the number system and how we can really play with the numbers.

NUMBER SYSTEM

The system of numeration employing then ten digits 0, 1,2,3,4,.....,8 ,9 is known as number system .
A group of digits, denoting a number is called a numeral.

A number may be a natural number , a whole number , an integer , a rational number , a real number etc.It is important to mention here that the above classification of numbers is not mutually exclusive, e.g. . An integer can also be a whole number or a natural number.

HEIGHT AND DISTANCE math capsule

HEIGHT AND DISTANCE -

Sometimes , we need to find the height of tower , building , tree , distance of a ship from light house, width of river and angle subtended by any object at a given point, etc.

We cannot measure them accurately , though we can find them using the concepts of ,

(1) Angle of elevation
(2) Angle of depression

ANGLE OF ELEVATION -

Angle of elevation is defined as an angle subtended by an eye with the horizontal axis to see an object in the upward direction.

LINEAR EQUATIONS math capsule

Do you want to learn something about linear equations and how to play with them?
Here is your guide to it . 

Tips : grab a cup of coffee and enjoy this long article .

so here we begin ,

EQUATION

An equation is a statement of equality of two algebraic polynomial(monomials) involving one or more variable.
or
An equation is a statement in which two algebraic expressions are equal.
e.g. 7x+5 = 0 is an equation but only 7x+5 is an expression.

LOCUS math capsule

How to learn locus ?
What is a 'locus'?
Why do we need to read about it? Here is your answer to every question  in your head 

LOCUS

The curve described by any point which moves under the given geometrical conditions is called locus.
e.g. The locus of a point (in a plane) equidistant from a fixed point (in a plane) is a circle with the fixed point as centre.
The plural of locus is loci and it is a read as losai.
* The locus may be a line or lines , straight or curve.
* Every point which satisfies the given geometrical conditions lies on the locus and vice versa.
* A point which does not satisfy the given geometrical conditions cannot lie on the locus and vice versa.


HCF AND LCM OF POLYNOMIALS math capsule

I hate long articles or blog posts , don't you ?
That's why i write mine really very short, descriptive and covering all the concepts in one go .
This post is regarding the hcf and lcm of polynomials and monomials. If you want to learn about the hcf and lcm of numbers then click this yellow link below . It will take you to another article . Sorry ;)


 HCF and LCM 

HCF OF POLYNOMIALS                                     

The highest common factor of two or more algebraic expressions is the factor of the highest degree which divides each of the expressions without a remainder.
It is denoted by HCF or GCD.
It is a convention to take HCF in such a way that the coefficient of the highest power of the variable is positive.

LOGARITHM math capsule

log ! log ! log!
You know this was the most scary term in mathematics for me when i was in high school!
But when i studied it , it became the most easy concept to learn and i used to do the problems in seconds . And sometimes that too without using pen and paper.

LOGARITHM

If 'a' is a positive real number other than 1 and 'b' is a rational number such that aⁿ= B then we say that logarithm of B to base 'a' is n or 'b' is the logarithm of N to base 'a', written as 

logₐ B = n
So, aⁿ = B <=> log ₐ B = n

e.g. 7º = 1 <=> log ₇ 1 = 0

So good to see you here !
I think learning is the most valuable thing we can do to ourselves .
I don't know i may be biased with studies, but i love it to do .
Hope that you will digest this article and start loving the numbers :) 

SQUARE OF A NUMBER

The square of a number is obtained by multiplying it by itself.
e.g. Square of 5 = 5 * 5 = 25 , square of 6 = 6 * 6 = 36

Perfect square or square number -
A natural number n is called a perfect square or a square number , if there exists a natural number m i.e. n = m².
e.g. The numbers 1 , 4 , 9 , 16 , 25 ,........  are square number.

PERCENTAGE math capsule

I was always the first kid in my classroom to whom the teacher used to ask what percentage of studies do you do at home?
And i was confused every time, why because i did not know the answer? Not really , i knew it .... but the answer was 0% .
hehe
But yeah of course i used to cover all this during the school hours of mine ,
so , lets start this blog post and i hope this will help you guys learn at a much faster rate.

PER CENT 

Per cent is a fraction whose denominator is 100 and numerator of the fraction is called the rate per cent . Per cent is denoted by the symbol '%'.

RATIO AND PROPORTION math capsule

Tips: have a cup of tea ! i know you are going to love this .

RATIO

A ratio is the fraction or comparison of two or more quantities of the same type by division , i.e. if a and b are two quantities of same kind then the fraction a/b is called the ratio a to b . Here , a is called the first term (or antecedent) and b is called the second term (or consequent ) .
e.g. The ratio of 7m to 9m or 7 : 9.
