Equivalent Rational Numbers – Definition – Examples Rational Numbers A rational number can be represented in the form of p/q, where q is not equal to zero. Equivalent Rational Numbers Two rational numbers are said to be equivalent, if they have same value but can be represented in different forms. We know that if we […]

Lines of symmetry in a regular Pentagon What is line of symmetry ? The line of symmetry is the imaginary line where we could fold the image and have both halves match exactly. If a given line splits a given figure into two identical halves, we say that the line has a line of symmetry […]

Corresponding Angles – Definition – Examples Two angles that are corresponding are those that are located on the same side of a transversal in identical relative position. They typically result from a transversal cutting two lines, whether they are parallel or not. In other words corresponding angles formed when a transversal line cuts across two […]

Alternate Angles: Definition and Types In this tutorial we will learn definition and types of alternate angles. In geometry, alternate angles are a special kind of angles. Alternate interior angles are formed when a transversal intersect two parallel or non-parallel lines. If a straight line intersects two lines, in the same plane at two distinct […]

Alternate Interior Angles – Definition – Examples – Properties What are alternate interior angles? The term alternate interior angles is often used when two lines are intersected by a third line(transversal). Alternate interior angles are formed when two lines are intersected by a third line. The third line is known as the transversal line. Alternate […]

Perimeter of a Square – Definition – Examples – Formula What is perimeter? Perimeter comes from the Greek words ‘Peri’ meaning surrounding or inclosing of a surface and ‘Meter’ meaning distance. So perimeter means total measurement of boundaries of a surface. Definition: The Perimeter of a square is the distance (total of length) covered by […]

Complex Numbers – Definition and Examples Complex Numbers The concept Complex numbers was first used in 1st century by a Greek mathematician Alexandria, when he tried to find the square root of a negative number. After that in 16th century complex number was define by Italian mathematician Gerolamo Cardano, in the process of finding the […]
