In this video tutorial the instructor shows how to solve exponential and logarithmic equations. Solving exponential equations can become very difficult if it involves large numbers. To solve these kinds of complex equations you need to get all the numbers to the same base number. The base number raised to some number should give you your original number. Now if you write the numbers as exponents of your base number you can directly equate the exponent part and solve for the missing variable. ...

Calculating The Area Of A Parallelogram A parallelogram is a 4-sided shape formed by two pairs of parallel lines. Opposite sides are equal in length and opposite angles are equal in measure. To find the area of a parallelogram, multiply the base by the height. The formula is:

The video teaches the viewer how to find the area of a parallelogram and the area of a triangle. For a parallelogram, the first step is to find the right angle, the line perpendicular to the base (this is a line you draw, not part of the parallelogram). The height of the line that forms this right angle with the base is the perpendicular height. Next, find the length of the base. The area is the base times the height. For a triangle, find the right angle with the base (again a line you draw)....

How do you make a water based finish look more like oil-based finish. Its a common problem since water-based finishes are "water-white", which means they don't impart any color to the wood. This can be great in certain situations, but not so great when you want your project to have that warm glow to it. In this woodworking tutorial, you will learn how to use dye, shellac, and boiled linseed oil to try to spice up our water-based finish.

With the TSA's full-body scanners occupying a great deal of airports nationwide, the debate remains as to whether air travelers should continue to be subject to immoral security techniques and possible health risks due to the x-ray scanning devices. The "advanced imaging technology" may help keep obvious weapons out of major airports, but scanning naked bodies seems more voyeuristic than crucial to national security. But while the argument continues, one woman is taking a stand… well, not rea...

In this video, we learn how to find the surface area of a prism using a specific example. First you will need to find the base and height of your prism. If the base edge is 6 and the height is 8 you will do the equation Area= 1/2 bh. Doing this math out on your calculator, you will get the answer of 12.39. This is what the size of each triangle in the prism is going to be. The area of one pentagon (or the base) is 61.92 inches squared. If you need help with this, you can try drawing the pictu...

A pyramid is a three dimensional figure with the base in the form of a triangle and three slant sides to it. To find the surface area of a pyramid you have to find the area of the different pieces that make it up. The pyramid base can be triangle or even other geometric figure like pentagon. So first draw the base of the pyramid separately and compute its area first. Now compute the area of each sides separately. The area of each side can be same if the pyramid is a regular pyramid. Some time...

This video in the Education category will show you how to use a protractor to measure an angle. This video is from Brightstorm. In Geometry it is important to know how to measure an angle. This is a very simple and easy process. In order to measure an angle, you will need a protractor. Every protractor has a base and a center point marked on the base. You will put the center point on the vertex of the angle. Then align the base line of the protractor perfectly on one side of the angle. Now ch...

This video shows the method to find the volume of a cube, cylinder, pyramid or cone. Volume is equal to the multiple of the area of the base and the height or V=(base area)(height). Starting with the cube, the volume= [(side)(side)](side) or side cube or side^3. In the video side=50m or V=125000 cubic centimeter. Volume of the cylinder= [(pi){(radius of base)^2}](height of cylinder) or V=(pi)(r^2)(h). Substituting the values, V=pi(2^2)(4) cubic inches or 16pi cubic inches. Volume of a pyramid...

In this video, Mr. Maisonet provides a quick and easy method for calculating the area of a trapezoid. In the first step, The lengths of the two bases (the two sides of a trapezoid that are parallel to one another) are averaged. The lengths of the bases are first added together, and the sum is divided by two, yielding the average. The average is then multiplied by the height. The resulting product is the area of the trapezoid. This method for finding the area of a trapezoid is mathematically s...

The materials you will need to add snow and other details to the base of your miniature game figure are white tacky or craft glue, super glue, a few small rocks or pebbles, coarse turf, a small paint brush, and baking soda. Begin by using the super glue to apply a few rocks to your base. You don't want to apply too many as the main focus will be on the snow. Add white glue to the base being careful not to get any on the figure itself. Use your paint brush to spread the white glue around until...

The video shows how to solved mixed property problems using the exponent rules. See if there are any rules you can apply to the problem until you get to a point where you can't simplify anymore.
