figures 1 signiﬁcant ﬁgure A signiﬁcant ﬁgure in a number is a digit that counts. The digits 1 to 9 are always signiﬁcant, but 0 is not. However, 0 becomes signiﬁcant when it occurs between two signiﬁcant ﬁgures, or if an exact answer is needed. 3 signiﬁcant ﬁgures 200 200 200 Real value anywhere between 150–249 110,012 round down 2 signiﬁcant ﬁgures Real value anywhere between 195–204 Real value anywhere between 199.5–200.4 3.047 these 0s are not signiﬁcant round down 3 100,000 1

example, 3.5 and 7.2. 7.2 × 7.2 equals 12.25 + 51.84 = c Calculate the squares of each of the triangle’s known sides by multiplying them. 12.25 + 51.84 equals 64.09 = c Add these answers together to find the square of the hypotenuse. 13 cm (hypotenuse) this side is known a + b = c known side the square root of 64.09 is the same as the square root of c2 answer rounded to the hundredths place Use a calculator to find the square root of 64.09. This gives the length of side c. The

one of the most important parts of a circle—its diameter. A circle may also be rotated about its center and still ﬁt into its own outline, giving it a “rotational symmetry” about its center point. ce a r ound the the distan c i rc l e e c n e r e f segment the space m u between a chord and an arc chord a str aight line the cir cumferen ce of the circumference diam eter a line that c uts a circle r sector the space e exac t t n ly e enclosed by two radii a li ne ▷ A circle divided This

triangles. Isosceles triangles have 2 sides and 2 angles that are the same. In this case, two sides of triangles POR and QOR are formed from 2 radii of the circle. angle O subtended from P and Q R O P Q the angle at O is twice the angle at R R these are also right angles subtended from diameter, CD △ Angles subtended from the diameter Any angle at the circumference that is subtended from two points either side of the diameter is equal to 90°, which is a right angle. circumference (edge
