Is there a word equivalent?
Some common synonyms of equivalent are equal, identical, same, selfsame, and very. While all these words mean “not different or not differing from one another,” equivalent implies amounting to the same thing in worth or significance.
What equivalence means?
1a : the state or property of being equivalent. b : the relation holding between two statements if they are either both true or both false so that to affirm one and to deny the other would result in a contradiction. 2 : a presentation of terms as equivalent.
What does equivalent mean example?
The definition of equivalent is something that is essentially the same or equal to something else. An example of equivalent is (2+2) and the number 4. Since 2+2= 4, these two things are equivalent.
What does ≡ mean in math?
≡ means identical to. This is similar to, but not exactly the same as, equals. Therefore, if in doubt, stick to =. ≈ means approximately equal to, or almost equal to.
What is equivalent form?
Parallel forms reliability (also called equivalent forms reliability) uses one set of questions divided into two equivalent sets (“forms”), where both sets contain questions that measure the same construct, knowledge or skill.
What is the simplest equivalent form?
Equivalent Fractions: Fractions that reduce to the same number and have an equal value. They are fractions that name the same amount in different ways. Simplifying: Reducing to lowest terms. Lowest terms/Simplest Form: The numerator and denominator of a fraction in lowest terms have no common factors except one.
How do you write an equivalent expression in simplest form?
How do you know if an expression is in simplest form?
In general, an expression is in simplest form when it is easiest to use.
How do you simplify expression?
To simplify any algebraic expression, the following are the basic rules and steps:
Remove any grouping symbol such as brackets and parentheses by multiplying factors.
Use the exponent rule to remove grouping if the terms are containing exponents.
Combine the like terms by addition or subtraction.
Combine the constants.
What is the simplest form of an algebraic expression?
These three terms are called like terms because they all contain the same variable, p. When we collect or combine the like terms in this way, we are giving an expression in its simplest form, which is called simplifying an expression. like terms Like terms contain the same variable or variables.
What is a polynomial in simplest form?
To simplify a polynomial, we have to do two things: 1) combine like terms, and 2) rearrange the terms so that they’re written in descending order of exponent. For example, you can add 1 “x-squared” to 2 “x-squareds” and get 3 “x-squareds”, but 1 “x-squared” plus an “x” can’t be combined because they’re not like terms.
