The **circumference** of a circle is the distance around its perimeter and equals π (approx. 3.14159) x diameter: c = π d. The **area** of a circle is π x (radius)^{2} : a = π r^{2}.

To multiply binomials, use the FOIL method. FOIL stands for **F**irst, **O**utside, **I**nside, **L**ast and refers to the position of each term in the parentheses.

You can only add or subtract monomials that have the same variable and the same exponent. However, you can multiply and divide monomials with unlike terms.

A rectangle is a parallelogram containing four right angles. Opposite sides (a = c, b = d) are equal and the perimeter is the sum of the lengths of all sides (a + b + c + d) or, comonly, 2 x length x width. The area of a rectangle is length x width. A **square** is a rectangle with four equal length sides. The perimeter of a square is 4 x length of one side (4s) and the area is the length of one side squared (s^{2}).

A triangle is a three-sided polygon. It has three interior angles that add up to 180° (a + b + c = 180°). An exterior angle of a triangle is equal to the sum of the two interior angles that are opposite (d = b + c). The **perimeter** of a triangle is equal to the sum of the lengths of its three sides, the **height** of a triangle is equal to the length from the **base** to the opposite **vertex** (angle) and the **area** equals one-half triangle base x height: a = ½ base x height.
