The four steps to every word problem is to Read, Say, Focus & Think
Read Through the whole problem
Say I can do this
Focus On Bottom Line Question
Think About The Words Of The Question
Name two questions to ask about a math word problem. Ask what operation do I use?

Ask what do the words mean?

If words are Combine and then you ADD
Question: Asking MORE or LESS or what is the DIFFERENCE or LEFT (comparing words) then you Subtract
If asking how many are IN something then you Divide
A part OF something (1/2 of 2000, 90% of salary, etc.) then you Multiply
Per (per or unit rate refers to one) in question then you Divide
If you know something about ONE and want to know about MORE then you Multiply
If you know something about MORE and want to know about ONE then you Divide

Question Answer
outcome one possible result of a probability event
simple events one outcome or a collection of outcomes
probability The chance that some event will happen. It is the ratio of the number of ways a certain event can occur to the number of possible outcomes.
complementary events The events of one outcome hapening and that outcome not happening are complementary events. The sum of the probabilities of complementary events is 1.
sample space the set of all possible outcomes of a probability experiment
compound (composite) event an event consisting or two or more simple events
independent events two or more events in which the outcome of one event does not affect the outcome of the other event(s)
fair game a game in which players of equal skill have an equal chance of winning
dependent events the outcome of one event affects the outcome of the other event

Term Definition
Base When a number is written in exponential form, the number that is used as a factor.
(Example: 5^4 (5 is the base) which equals 5x5x5x5.)
Composite Number A whole number greater than 1 with more than two factors. (Example: 24 is a composite number that has 1,2,3,4,6,8,12,and 24 as factors.)
Divisible A number is this term by a second whole number if the first number can be divided by the second number with a remainder of 0. (Example: 16 is divisible by 1,2,4,8,and 16.
Exponent Tells how many times a number, or base, is used as a factor. (Example: 3^4 (4 is the exponent) equals 3x3x3x3.
Factor A whole number that divides another whole number with a remainder of 0. (Example: 1,2,3,46,12,18,and 36 are factors of 36.)
Formula A rule that shows the relationship between two or more quantities. (Example: The formula p=2L+2W gives the perimeter of a rectangle in terms of its length and width.
Greatest Common Factor (GCF) This term of two or more numbers is the greatest number that is a factor of all of the numbers. (Example: The GCF of 12 and 30 is 6.)
Least Common Denominator (LCD) This term of two or more fractions is the least common multiple of their denominators. (Example: The LCD of fractions 3/8 and 7/10 is 40.
Least Common Multiple (LCM) This term of two numbers is the smallest number that is a multiple of both numbers. (Example: The LCM of 15 and 6 is 30.)
Multiplicative Inverse The reciprocal of a number is called this term. (Example: The multiplicative inverse of 4/9 is 9/4.
Power A number that can be expressed using a base and exponent. (Example: 3^4,5^2, and 2^10 are powers.
Prime Factorization Writing a composite number as the product of its prime factors is the prime factorization of the number. (Example: The prime factorization of 12 is 2x2x3, or 2^2×3.)
Prime Number A whole number with exactly two factors, 1 and itself. (Example: 13 is a prime number because its only factors are 1 and 13.)
Rational Number Any number written as a quotient of two integers where the denominator is not 0. (Example: 1/3,-5,6.4,0.666…,-2 4/5,0, and 7/3 are rational numbers.
Reciprocals Two numbers are this term if their product is 1. (Example: The numbers 4/9 and 9/4 are reciprocals.
Relatively Prime A fraction a/b is in simplest form when a and b are relatively prime, which means they only have 1 as a common factor. (Example: 9/10, 1/4, and 2/3 are examples of this term.)
Repeating Decimal A decimal that repeats the same digits without end. The repeating block can contain one digit or more than one digit. (Example: 0.888…=0.8 with the repeating sign over 8.
Scientific Notation A number is in scientific notation if the first factor is greater than or equal to 1 and less than 10, and the second factor is a power of 10. (Example: 37,000,000 is written as 3.7×10^7 in this term.
Terminating Decimal A decimal that stops. (Example: Both 0.6 and 0.7265 are this term.)
