Cubic function

In algebra, a cubic function is a function of the form where a is nonzero.

Distributive property

In abstract algebra and formal logic, the distributive property of binary operations generalizes the distributive law from elementary algebra.

Exponentiation

Exponentiation is a mathematical operation, written as bn, involving two numbers, the base b and the exponent n.

Identity (mathematics)

In mathematics an identity is an equality relation A = B, such that A and B contain some variables and A and B produce the same value as each other regardless of what values (usually numbers) are substituted for the variables.

Inequality (mathematics)

In mathematics, an inequality is a relation that holds between two values when they are different (see also: equality).

Division by zero

In mathematics, division by zero is division where the divisor (denominator) is zero.

Linear function (calculus)

In calculus and related areas of mathematics, a linear function from the real numbers to the real numbers is a function whose graph (in Cartesian coordinates with uniform scales) is a line in the plane.

Elementary algebra

Elementary algebra encompasses some of the basic concepts of algebra, one of the main branches of mathematics.

Nth root

In mathematics, an nth root of a number x, where n is usually assumed to be a positive integer, is a number r which, when raised to the power n yields x where n is the degree of the root.

Partial fraction decomposition

In algebra, the partial fraction decomposition or partial fraction expansion of a rational function (that is a fraction such that the numerator and the denominator are both polynomials) is the operation that consists in expressing the fraction as a sum of a polynomial (possibly zero) and one or several fractions with a simpler denominator.

Linearity

Linearity is the property of a mathematical relationship or function which means that it can be graphically represented as a straight line, that is, that one quantity is simply proportional to another.

Algebraic fraction

In algebra, an algebraic fraction is a fraction whose numerator and denominator are algebraic expressions.
