MATH REVIEW Getting ready for the ACT

ACT MATH: Broken Down 60 Q, 60 Minutes 23% Pre-Algebra 17% Elementary Algebra 15% Intermediate Algebra 15% Coordinate Geometry 23% Plane Geometry 7% Trigonometry

Formulas Area of a circle = π* (radius)^2 Circumference of a circle = π *diameter Area of a triangle = (1/2)*base*height Area of rectangle = base*height Area of a trapezoid = (1/2)*height*(base1 +base2) Volume of rectangular solid = length*width*height Pythagorean Theorem: a^2 + b^2 = c^2 (for a non-isosceles right triangle) Perimeter of rectangle = 2(length + width)

Equations Standard Form: Ax + By + C = 0 Point-slope Form: Y- y1= m*(X - x1); m=slope, (x1, y1)=point given Slope-intercept Form: y = mx + b; m=slope, b= y-intercept Of a circle with center (h,k) and radius r: (x-h)^2 + (y-k)^2 = r^2 Distance = rate*time Slope = -(a/b); for all ax+by+c=0

Trigonometry sin^2(A) + cos^2(A) = 1 SOH: sin= opposite/hypotenuse CAH: cosine= adjacent/hypotenuse TOA: tangent= opposite/adjacent sin(x)= cos(90-x) Ratio for 30:60:90 triangles: 1:√3:2 Ratio for 45:45:90 triangles: √2:√2:1

Exponents Add: c*x^a + d*x^a = (c+d)*x^a Subtract: c*x^a - d*x^a = (c-d)*x^a Multiply: (c*x^a)*(d*x^b) = (cd)*x^(a+b) Divide: (c*x^a)/(d*x^b) = (c/d)*x^(a-b) Distribution: (cd)^a = (c^a)*(d^a) Power of a power: c(x^a)^b= c*x^(ab)

Other Helpful things to know Rule for divisibility by 3: adding the digits of a number divisible by 3 will give you a multiple of 3 (Ex: 57; 5+7=12). Know how to set up proportions and use cross-multiplication. There are 180° in a triangle. Multiplying/Dividing inequalities by a negative will switch the sign from or visa versa. A larger denominator will make the fraction a smaller number/decimal.
