Re: UPCAT Math Reviewer PDF
The University of the Philippines College Admission Test (UPCAT) is part of the admission requirements of the University of the Philippines, administered to graduates of Philippine and foreign high schools. It was first administered in 1968. UPCAT Math Reviewer Section 1 Mathematics I. Linear Equations Linear Algebra refers to equations in the form y=mx+b, where y = y-value at a certain point in the graph x = x-value at a certain point in the graph b = a constant m = the slope of the line This is useful for a variety of problems and is often represented by a graph that has a simple, straight line (Which is why it is called linear). You can solve for specific characteristics of a linear equation by plugging in known values and using a technique called isolation, which involves isolating the unknown variable. The unknowns that many questions ask students to find would include the following: The y-intercept, or the value of y when it intercepts the y-axis The x-intercept, or the value of x when it intercepts the x-axis Slope The constant Isolation is fairly straightforward to use, as in the following example. Example 1: What is the slope of the equation y=mx+3 if it intersects the x-axis at the point (4,0)? So what do we know? We know the equation, and that it passes through the point (4,0) somewhere along its graph, so we can simply plug in 4 for x and 0 for y to isolate m. y=mx+3 0=m(4)+3 -3=m(4) -3/4=m Weve now isolated m, or the slope, so we have our answer: -3/4 or -0.75.
