Logarithms

You should understand logarithms and how to rewrite them.   asks b to what power (y) will result in x. You can rewrite it as:. When x is a product of two different numbers, it may be easier to solve if you remember the following formula:

Quadratic Formula

Solve any quadratic equation in the form ax^2+bx+c=0 with this formula. For those formulas that are difficult to find the difference of squares, or if you are in a rush on an exam, the quadratic formula will be very nice to know.

Slope-Intercept Formula

In this formula, m is the slope and is the y-intercept.  If you get an equation that is not in this format, you will want to re-write it so that it is. It makes graphing a line much easier.

Percentages
