 Term Any simple part of an algebraic expression involving only + or - operations. For example, Trinomial A mathematical expression consisting of only three terms. Theorem A true statement that can be deducted from the axioms and or others previous theorems. Transcendental number A number that is real but not algebraic, that is not a root of any polynomial equation with rational coefficients. Some commonly used transcendental numbers are . Transitive A relation R it is said transitive if aR & bRc then aRc (a is related to b and b is related to c then a is related to c). For example: The equality is transive, since for all real numbers a, b, & c, if a = b, and b = c, then a = c. The < relation is transitive, since for all real numbers a, b, & c, if a < b, and b < c, then a < c Transversal A line intersecting two or more other lines. Triangle A polygon of three sides. Special triangles are the equilateral, the isosceles and the right triangle.
