lowest degree that is divisible by all of a given set of numbers
or polynomials.
LCM
Length
A measure of
distance.
Arclength
A measure of
an arc of a curve.
Light
year
A unit of distance
in astronomy, equal to the distance travelled by light (in a vacuum)
in one year. 1 year light
Line
A line is a
set of points in the plane satisfying an equation of the form
ax+by+c = 0 , where a, b, & c are any constants; and
a and b are not both zero. The equation
of a nonvertical line has the following equivalent forms:
Slopeintercept form: y = mx + b , has
slope m and cuts the yaxis at point (0,b)
Pointslope form: , has slope m passing
through point .
Interceptform: , intercept on xaxis at (a,0)
and the yaxis at(0,b)

Logarithm
For ,
the log to the base b of x, is the function which associates
to each positive number x, the corresponding exponent y
satisfying ,
which is equivalent to ,
i.e., the log to the base b of x is the exponent to which b must
be raised in order to obtain x and thus we have
.
Logarithmic functions obey certain rules:
The log to the base 10 is called common logarithm and is written
as .
The log to the base e (2.71828182...) is called natural logarithm
and is written as .
