## Algebraic equationAlgebraic equation is a combination of numbers and letters equivalent to a sentence in language | |

## Algebraic expressionAlgebraic expression is a combination of numbers and letters equivalent to a phrase in language | |

## AlgorithmAlgorithm is a step by step procedure by which an operation can be carried out. | |

## Associative propertyAssociative property is a property (which applies both to multiplication and addition) by which numbers can be added or multiplied in any order and still yield the same value | |

## AsymptoteAsymptote is a line that the curve of a function tends towards as the independent variable of the curve approaches some limit (usually infinity) i.e. The distance between the curve and the line approaches zero. | |

## AxiomAxiom is a proposition that is not actually proved or demonstrated, but is considered to be self-evident and universally accepted as a starting point for deducing and inferring other truths and theorems, without any need of proof. | |

## Base nBase n is the number of unique digits (including zero) that a positional numeral system uses to represent numbers, e.g. Base 10 (decimal) uses 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 in each place value position; base 2 (binary) uses just 0 and 1; base 60 (sexagesimal, as used in ancient mesopotamia) uses all the numbers from 0 to 59; etc. | |

## BinomialBinomial is a polynomial algebraic expression or equation with just two terms | |
