(back when Bob Dole was learning geometry), came up with one of the most famous theorems ever, the Pythagorean Theorem. It says - in a right triangle, the square of the measure of the hypotenuse equals the sum of the squares of the measures of the two legs. This theorem is normally represented by the following equation: a2 + b2 = c2, where c represents the hypotenuse.<br /><br />With this theorem, if you are given the measures of two sides of a triangle, you can easily find the measure of the other side.<br /><br /><a onblur="try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}" href="http://bp2.blogger.com/_t5CE3xleH5M/RkOHjO3Rw4I/AAAAAAAAABY/XAPPqOlZqO8/s1600-h/geo_pythagorean.gif"><img style="cursor:pointer; cursor:hand;" src="http://bp2.blogger.com/_t5CE3xleH5M/RkOHjO3Rw4I/AAAAAAAAABY/XAPPqOlZqO8/s320/geo_pythagorean.gif" border="0" alt=""id="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5063039445449687938" /></a><br /><br /><br />Example<br /><br />1.

I find adding and subtracting and multiplying fractions easy too.

It was not to hard and not to easy it was just right. I learned quite a few things that i didn't learn in elementry. Like for subtracting I learned how to borrow numbers from a mix number, although i have problems sometimes on that. I have problems for dividing still because I wasnt there when he taught the class so i have to learn from someone FAST. Also multiplication, i still have to work on that. Adding and Subtracting are easy for me I have no problem with that.<br /></em><br /><br /><br /><strong>Did you like the unproject?</strong><br />Yeah, I did like the unproject and especially with abdul! Couldn't do it without him! Haha I also liked how you can learn something and still have fun on that unproject.<br /><br /><strong>Did the unproject make you work harder than you usually would? </strong><br />Actully yes it did. But i work harder then anything when I work on computer because thats what I mainly do at home anyways so i can just work on something and still chat on msn while working :D.<br /><br /><strong>What did you like best about the unproject?</strong><br />The thing i like best about the unproject was messing with the HTML , like putting songs and banners. But I could do better but then theres some HTML that dont work with it so I had to leave it out. But the graphicy stuff is just for fun, whats important is that we got the information needed.<br /><br /><strong>What would you change about the next unproject? </strong><br />I would change the quiz , the quiz was a bit difficult to make because you got one right answer, then you have to make up some other possibilities and its just hard cause its a smile question. So if i had the chance to i'd change the quiz and make like a game or something.<br /><br /><strong>Did the unproject make you learn more because you were doing a different type of project? </strong><br />No not really because i already knew more about Adding and Subtracting so it didnt really make much of a diffrence.jdeguzmanhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/15633501746613952827noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-669425294728525667.post-10710820298169411072007-04-05T12:28:00.000-05:002007-04-05T16:57:09.617-05:00B.logging O.n B.loggingI found this unit on fractions quite easy, although I'm still having <span style="color:#6666cc;">a bit of trouble</span> on <span style="color:#6666cc;">subtracting fractions</span> and <span style="color:#6666cc;">diving fractions</span>.

I guess because i didn't understand it that well until now. Now i get adding, subtracting and multiplying fractions. But i'm still geting used to dividing fractions. I hope i do well on the next test.<br /><br /> 1. Did you like the unproject. Yah it was kinda easy because i knew what to do.<br /><br /> 2. Did the unproject make you work harder than you usually would? Nope i always work hard on blogs and stuff like that.<br /> 3. What did you like best about the unproject? Puting music and other applications on it.<br /> 4. What would you change about the next unproject? I don't really no wat i could.<br /><br /> 5.

SINCE <span style="color:#cc33cc;">8 x 3 = 24 and 41 x 3 = 123</span>. The other fraction is 16/24 because <span style="color:#ff0000;">8 x 2 = 16</span> and <span style="color:#ff6600;">8 x 3 = 24.</span> Then <strong>subtract</strong> <span style="color:#33ccff;">123 </span>from <span style="color:#33ccff;">16 </span>and that equals <span style="color:#663366;">107/24</span>.. if you want to convert it back to a mixed number you have to see how much <span style="color:#ff9966;">24</span> goes into <span style="color:#ff6666;">107</span> . which is <span style="color:#339999;">4</span> times, then how much remains and that would be <span style="color:#660000;">11</span>. mixed fraction is <span style="color:#33cc00;">4 11/24</span>...<br />If the fractions aren't in a mixed number.. heres the way to do it.<br />2/3 - 3/5 = 10/15 = 9/15 = 1/15 .. multiply the denominators by each other ( 5 x 3 =15) .. then cross multiply 2 x 5 = 10 and 3 x 3 = 9 .. fraction is now 10/15 and 9/15 then subtract 10 from 9 and that gives you 1/15 ..<br />If the fractions have different denominators<br />1) Find the least common denominator.<br />2) Find the equivalent fraction using this denominator.<br />3) Subtract the fractions, if you could reduce then you should.chendahttp://www.blogger.com/profile/06521156711273190295noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-669425294728525667.post-65206677046417705012007-03-12T20:24:00.000-05:002007-03-13T07:48:33.429-05:00Adding Fractions for dummies Author abdul .s<h3>There are 3 Simple Steps to add fractions: </h3> <p>Step 1: Make sure the bottom numbers (the <span style="color:blue;">denominators</span>) are the same </p> <p>Step 2: Add the top numbers (the <span style="color:purple;">numerators</span>).
