### How would you explain to a seventh grader the difference between the domains of an odd root radical function and an even root radical function?

To start with, when you multiply an even number of negative numbers, the answer is positive. When you multiply an odd number of negative numbers, the answer is negative. When you multiply any number of positive numbers, the answer is always positive. For positive numbers, the value of a power is always positive. For negative numbers, the value of an odd power is negative, and the value of an even power is positive. Finding roots is the inverse of taking powers, so that an odd-root function can be evaluated for any value of x. An even-root function, however, cannot be evaluated when the value of x is negative, since an even power can never result in a negative answer. The domain of an odd root function is all real numbers; the domain of an even root function is the non-negative real numbers.

### Can you show on a number line how subtracting a negative number ends up positive?

-3...-2...-1...0...1...2...3To find the positive number when subtracting from a (-)number is finding the Absolute Value of the sum. Another way is changing the negative number to a positive and reversing the equation.*Such as, 1-(-3)--> +3-1. So than the answer is a positive 4.* Dots represent the actual line

### How do you know when the slope of a line is negative?

You know when the slope of a line is negative when m in the slope-intercept form equation y=mx+b is negative. For example, y=-3x+2 has a negative slope since m (which is -3 in this case) is negative. This is the same when finding a positive slope, because if m is positive, then the slope is positive.

### What are the positive and negative referred to?

When used with numbers, positive means "more than zero", and negative means "less than zero". Other meanings are:* Positive: something favorable; negative: something unfavorable. * Positive: something is found; negative: nothing was found. Especially used for medical analysis. Note that this meaning is quite contrary to the previous one - since finding a disease can be quite unfavorable for the patient!
