Examples of Quadratic Function Problems

Examples of Quadratic Function Problems

Quadratic functions are polynomial functions that have a maximum degree of two. The graphs of quadratic functions are called parabolas and have a “U” shape. Quadratic functions can be used to model various situations in everyday life such as the parabolic motion...
Examples of Linear Function Problems

Examples of Linear Function Problems

A linear function is defined as a function that has one or more variables without exponents. Linear functions produce straight lines when graphed. Here, we are going to do a brief review of linear functions. We will look at how to graph linear functions and how to...
Compound Proportion – Examples and Practice Problems

Compound Proportion – Examples and Practice Problems

Proportionality allows us to relate two or more quantities. In the case of compound proportionality, we are relating three quantities at the same time. Compound proportionality is represented as y∝xz. If we use the constant k, we can form the...
Inverse Proportion – Examples and Practice Problems

Inverse Proportion – Examples and Practice Problems

Proportionality is a way of relating two quantities. In the case of inverse proportion, the relationship is such that, if we increase one quantity, the other quantity decreases and vice versa. Here, we will look at a brief summary of inverse proportion. Then, we will...
Direct Proportion – Examples and Practice Problems

Direct Proportion – Examples and Practice Problems

Proportionality allows us to relate two quantities and understand how one quantity changes if we change the other. If two quantities are directly proportional, then when we increase one quantity, the other quantity will also increase and vice versa. Here, we will look...
Geometric Sequences – Examples and Practice Problems

Geometric Sequences – Examples and Practice Problems

Geometric sequences have the main characteristic of having a common ratio, which is multiplied by the last term to find the next term. Any term in a geometric sequence can be found using a formula. Here, we will look at a summary of geometric sequences and we will...
