How To: Solve percent proportions

A percent problem is one in which you are given a quantity and asked to compute the value of a percent of it. You may also be given the whole quantity and a part of it and asked to compute the percentage of the part in the whole. To do these kind of problems you need to use the rule which states that the ratio of the part to the base it equal to the ratio of the percent to hundred. That is part/base = percent/100. This comes from the definition of percentage which states that percentage is eq...

How To: Solve multi-step equations with absolute values

This educational math video describes the steps necessary to solve an equation involving absolute values. "Absolute value" refers to the magnitude of a quantity and is always expressed as a positive number. You can think of absolute value as the distance a number would be from zero if plotted on a number line. Positive 17 and negative 17 both have the same absolute value because both are 17 units from zero on a number line. Because of this, all absolute value problems have two answers, one wh...

How To: Find the percent change using proportions

In this video, the instructor shows how to identify the percentage change using proportions. When a given quantity increases or decreases by certain amount then we can calculate the percentage change in the quantity, which can be either increase or decrease based on the new value of the quantity. To solve these kind of situations you should know that the ratio of amount of increase (or decrease) of an amount to its original amount is equal to the ratio of percentage increase (or decrease) to ...

How To: Square expressions involving radicals

Here we look at squaring expressions that involve radicals because people tend to make some common mistakes while solving such expressions. Take 5 times the square root of y quantity squared, the answer here is not 5y. Here's the reason, square means to multiply something with itself so the square of 5 root y would be 5 root y into 5 root y. So 5 x 5 is 25 and under root y into under root y equals just y so the answer will be 25y.

How To: Find the percent increase or decrease in a quantity

This video shows us the method to find the percent increase or decrease in a quantity. This can be done in 30 seconds.

How To: Balance chemical equations

n this tutorial, we learn how to balance chemical equations. This is a straight-forward concept to balance out both sides of the equation of chemicals. To start, you will need to analyze how many atoms in each chemical you have on each side. Once you do this, you will need to find what you can multiply by on each side to make them equal to the other side. Once you do this and have equal atoms on each side, then the equation will be equal. Remember that you cant have a half of an atom, so that...

How To: Use cross products to solve proportions

To solve a proportion for a variable you should employ cross multiplication. The basis of cross multiplication is the property which states that the product of the numerator of one fraction and the denominator of what it is set equal to is equal to the product of the remaining denominator and numerator. For example if you have x/15=21/45 you simply need to multiply x by 45 and 15 by 21 then set them equal to each other. The result of this is 45x=315. To solve this new problem for x, divide bo...

How To: Interpret derivatives of marginal cost and revenue

This video tells us the method of interpreting derivatives of marginal cost and revenue. If C(x) is the cost of producing x units of a product, C(400) would be the cost to produce 400 units. Now marginal cost is the cost of producing one unit which is equal to the derivative of the cost function or C'(400) which is equal to limit of h tends to zero or lim h->0 [lim(400+h)-lim(400)]/h which is approximately equal to [lim(401)-lim(400)]/1. Similarly, if R(x) is your revenue function, marginal r...

How To: Use the laws of logarithms

ProfessorElvisZap teaches you about the laws of logarithms. When x is positive, meaning 0<x. x times y equals y times x. This is the commutative property. x times (y times z) equals (x times y) times z. This is the associative property. x times 1 equals x. This is the multiplicative property. x times x to the power of -1 equals 1. This is the multiplicative inverse property. You can use these properties with addition: a+b=b+a, (a+b)+c=a+(b+c), a+0=a and a+(-a)=0. A logarithm is a homomorphism...

How To: Calculate the age of the universe w/ Hubble's constant

How To: Solve single-step inequalities using the reciprocal

This video tutorial is in the Education category which will show you how to solve single-step inequalities using the reciprocal. Let's solve the problem "negative 5/2 X is less than equal to negative 1/5". To solve for "X", we need to get rid of "negative 5/2". To do that, we multiply both sides of the inequality by the reciprocal of 5/2 and we need to keep the negative sign also. So, we multiply both sides by "negative 2/5". Whenever we multiply a negative to both sides of an inequality, the...
