Math Terms StartingWith Z

In this page math terms startingwith Z we are going to see definitions of mathematical terms starting with the letter "Z". We have listed out almost terms in math startingwith Z.In math also it is very important to know the meaning of many important words which are being used in the subject math.Each term is defined and examples are provided where ever it is necessary. Links are given for every words, by using this students can learn the meaning and its application more clearly.




The axis which is perpendicular to the plane determined by x-y axes at their point of intersection. It also represent a coordinate in the triple ordered pair (x,y,z).


The third number in the triple ordered pair


The point at which the graph intersects the z-axis.


The number 0 which indicates zero quantity, size, or magnitude. Zero is neither negative nor positive.

Zero dimension

The only vector that contained on the point is zero vector.

Zero slope

Slope of a horizontal line

Zero vector

A vector with magnitude zero.

Rational Zero theorem

Rational zeros theorem gives the possible rational zeros of a polynomial function. Equivalently the theorem gives all the possible roots of an equation.

The theorem states that,

If f(x) = anxn+an-1xn-1+…. +a1x+a0 has integer coefficients and p/q(where p/q is reduced) is a rational zero, then .p is the factor of the constant term a0 and q is the factor of leading coefficient an.

Zero matrix

A matrix which having only zero elements is called zero matrix.

Zero product property

If a x b = 0 then a = 0 or b = 0.
