## Study Notes

### Algebra Vocabulary

• Solution: A value that satisfies an equation, making it true.

• Linear Function: Defined by a degree of 1 and represented graphically as a straight line.

• Quadratic Function: Characterized by a degree of 2, forming a parabolic shape on a graph.

• Exponential Function: Features the variable x as an exponent, leading to rapid growth or decay in value.

• Variable: An algebraic symbol (usually a letter) that signifies an unknown quantity in equations.

• Domain: Represents the set of possible x-values for a given relation or function.

• Range: Encompasses the set of possible y-values for a relation or function.

• Term: Consists of products of numbers and variables, combined by addition or subtraction operations.

• Slope: Expressed as the ratio of the vertical change (difference in y-values) to the horizontal change (difference in x-values), commonly referred to as "rise over run."

• Slope-Intercept Form: The standard linear equation format represented as y = mx + b, where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept.

• Inequality: A mathematical expression indicating that two quantities are not equal, represented by symbols like > or <.

• Exponential Decay: Expressed by the formula y = a(b)^x, indicating a decrease in value over time or as x increases, where a is the initial value and b is a base factor less than 1.
