How To: Use the A-A Property to determine 2 similar triangles

Dougsimmsonline shows how to determine whether or not 2 triangles are similar. Not only does he go on to show that they are but he describes step by step how to do the math to find missing angles. He does this process twice to show one set of triangles being similar and show the other set of triangles as not being similar. Doug is using a large computer touch screen as his drawing board to show you how this process is done.

How To: Solve an equation by the distributive property

In this simple tutorial the tutor shows how to solve equation by the distributive property. He states that when there is a number which is multiplied to a full equation, we have to multiply each and every term of that equation by that multiplying number. This is called the distributive property as the value is distributed to each and every term inside the equation. He goes on and solves a problem based on this property to give a clear idea of the property. This video shows how to solve equati...

How To: Apply the distributive property in math

To solve simple algebraic expressions you have to use different properties. Distributive property is one among them. To apply distributive property in a algebraic expression multiply each term inside the parenthesis by the outside term. In this way you are distributing the outside term to all the inside terms and removing the parenthesis. Hence it is called distributive property. After multiplying add the like terms to simplify it further. Care should be taken to ensure the proper sign change...

How To: Check property lines before putting a fence up

You may have all the tools and people needed for putting up a fence, but something that should not be skipped is coding. Checking the coding and property lines to your place is important for making sure you don't cross into a place that you aren't supposed to be. This can result in bad blood forming and the removal of your hard work. So check out what you'll need to do in order to prevent that, in this tutorial. Enjoy!

How To: Apply the distributive property

The distributive property is a very important factor to consider in math and may save you a lot of trouble on your math homework. For values which lie right outside parentheses, you will need to distribute this value across the contents of whatever is inside the parentheses. You will need to multiply the value outside of the parentheses by first the first term inside the parentheses and then by the following terms inside the parentheses, distributing the value across all the terms found insid...

How To: Solve linear equations w/ the multiplication property

This video demonstrates how to solve a linear function with rational coefficients by multiplying by the reciprocal of the coefficient. The reciprocal is just a fancy way of saying the numerator and denominator are swapped. Two sample problems are solved using this method. Multiplying each side of the equation by the reciprocal of the rational coefficient of the variable 'x' is an allowed operation, but only because both sides are multiplies by the the same amount. The teacher then demonstrate...

How To: Perform a math addition card trick great for kids

This video is actually about how to perform a math addition card trick. Firstly take two sets of four cards in which one of the sets consists of 2 of hearts whereas the other set consists of 3 of spades. Then take the set of 3's and place it under the 2's then once it is turned over you get four cards of 3's on the top which is placed aside and the remaining cards are of 2's. Now if you just give a shake then one of the cards of 2's turn into 3 of spades and when the shake is repeated another...

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...
