## Math Dictionary-G

Math Dictionary-G deals with words starting with letter 'G'.

We may consider the following words which start with the letter “g”.

GCF ( Greatest common factor), Geometry, Geometric mean, Geometric progression, Geometric sequence, Glide reflection, Golden ratio.

In the above listed words, we are already familiar with the words mean, progression, sequence, reflection, and ratio. For all these words, geometric is being as adjective.

We already know meaning for the words mean, progression, sequence, reflection, and ratio, when they come alone without the adjective “Geometric”. But, when we have this adjective “ Geometric”, its meaning would be little bit different and those words give extra details.

GCF or Greatest common factor

The greatest common factor is the largest of all common factors.

Geometry

Geometry is a branch of mathematics dealing with line, angles, shapes and their properties. It discuss with physical shapes and dimensions of the body. Geometry is divided into Plane geometry and solid geometry. To know more about geometry please click here.

Geometric mean

Is a type of mean that indicates the central tendency or value of numbers. Geometric mean of two numbers, a and b is the square root of product of those two numbers.

Geometric progression

It is a sequence of numbers such that the quotient of any two successive numbers in the sequence is a constant which is called as common ration

Geometric sequence:

A sequence in which each consecutive terms differ by a constant ratio.

Glide reflection:

In geometry Glide reflection is a type of isometry of the Euclidean plane. It is a combination of reflection and translation.

Golden ratio

In math, two numbers are said to be in golden ratio, if the ratio of sum of two numbers to the greater number is equal to the ratio of the greater number to the smaller number.

## Quote on Mathematics

“Mathematics, without this we can do nothing in our life. Each and everything around us is math.

Math is not only solving problems and finding solutions and it is also doing many things in our day to day life. They are:

It subtracts sadness and adds happiness in our life.

It divides sorrow and multiplies forgiveness and love.

Some people would not be able accept that the subject Math is easy to understand. That is because; they are unable to realize how the life is complicated. The problems in the subject Math are easier to solve than the problems in our real life. When we people are able to solve all the problems in the complicated life, why can we not solve the simple math problems?

Many people think that the subject math is always complicated and it exists to make things from simple to complicate. But the real existence of the subject math is to make things from complicate to simple.”
