Bernoulli's formula in integration |
∫ u dv = uv - u' v₁ + u'' v₂ .............. |
Basic proportionality theorem |
If a straight line is drawn parallel to one side of a triangle, it cuts the other two sides proportionally. That is AD/DB = AE/EC |
Binary Operation |
Binary operation such that addition of any two natural numbers is a natural number,the product of any two natural number is also a natural number. Each of these operation associates two elements and produces the third element. Bi mean two that is combining two elements. |
