A population is all the organisms that both belong to the same group or species and live in the samegeographical area. In ecology the population of a certain species in a certain area is estimated using the Lincoln Index. The area that is used to define a sexual population is such that inter-breeding is possible between any pair within the area and more probable than cross-breeding with individuals from other areas. Normally breeding is substantially more common within the area than across the border.[1] In sociology, population refers to a collection of human beings. Demography is a social science which entails the statistical study of human populations. This article refers mainly to human population.

The term community has two distinct commutive meanings: 1) Community usually refers to a social unit larger than a small village that shares common values. The term can also refer to the national community or international community, and, 2) in biology, a community is a group of interacting living organisms sharing...

Quadratics is used to help to determine what is on a graph. There are many formulas that are used to put points on a graph to create parabolas. Parabolas are “U” shaped figures on a graph. Parabolas are examples of quadratics on a graph. Parabolas can be positioned up or down, which means if the arrows are going up it has a minimum point, and if the arrows are going down that means it has a maximum point. When graphing using the vertex formula: or the roots formula: whether the “a” is positive or negative helps identify if the graph has a maximum or minimum. Below are some examples and a visual representation of what a parabola looks like at its minimum and maximum points.
Example1:

There are three positions you may see a parabola when it is on a graph. Each position of the parabola determines the Nature of Roots. A parabola eithers has two real roots, one real root, or no real roots. The way you determine if a parabola has two real roots if the parabola “cuts” or cross” the x- axis in two places.
The roots formula also shows when a parabola has two real roots, which is the reason it is called the roots formula: because you can identify the two real roots by looking at the formula. To identify the roots you will set the. equal to...

Ascertaining Mathematics With Equations
The abstract science of a number, quantity and space that can be studied in its very own right or as it may be applied to other disciplines and subject matters in several aspects, one considers to be that of mathematics. The problem of testing a given number for “primality” has been known to be proven by Euclid in ancient Greece that there are in fact infinitely many primes. In such relations, a mathematician will describe in example two projects that use prime numbers, composite numbers and the quadratic formula to solve equations.
From the projects section on page 397 of Mathematics in Our World, for Project One, the mathematician will work only equations ( a ) and ( c ), but complete each of the six steps (a-f) and for Project Two, the mathematician will select a minimal of five numbers including zero (0) as one number and the other four are to be two even and two odd numbers.
PROJECT ONE
Basically, the foundation of Project One originates from a thought provoking methodology for finding solutions to quadraticequations. These particular methodologies or rather the identifiable method became founded and created in the country of India. For project one, the mathematician...

...the nature of the roots of quadratics and cubic functions.
Part One
Case One
For Case One, the discriminant of the quadratic will always be equal to zero. This will result in the parabola cutting the axis once, or twice in the same place, creating a distinct root or two of the same root.
For PROOF 1, the equation y=a(x-b)2 is used.
PROOF 1
y = 3 (x – 2)2
= y = 3 (x2 – 4x + 4)
= y = 3x2 – 12x + 12
^ = b2 – 4ac
= (-12)2 – 4 x 3 x 12
= 144 – 144
= 0
The discriminant is equal to zero. The parabola touches the x-axis at (2, 0) and as a in the equation is a positive value, the parabola curves upwards.
For PROOF 2, the equation y=-a(x-b)2 is used.
PROOF 2
y = -3(x - 2)2
= y = -3 (x2- 4x + 4)
= y = -3x2 + 12x – 12
^ = b2 – 4ac
= 122 – 4 x (-3) x (-12)
= 144 – 144
= 0
The discriminant of the parabola is equal to zero. The parabola touches the x-axis at (2,0) and as a is a negative value, the parabola curves downwards.
For PROOF 3, the equation y=a(x-A)2 is used.
y = a (x – A)2
= y = a (x2 – 2Ax + A2)
= y = ax2 – 2aAx + aA2
^ = b2 – 4ac
= (- 2aA)2 – 4 x (a) x (aA2)
= 4a2A2 - 4a2A2
= 0
The discriminant of the parabola is equal to zero. The parabola touches the x- axis at (A, 0) and whether the parabola curves up or down is dependent on the whether A is a positive or negative value.
Case Two
In Case Two, the discriminant of the...

Solving QuadraticEquations
Using correct methods to solve quadraticequations can make math an interesting task. In the paper below I will square the coefficient of the x term, yield composite numbers, move a constant term and see if prime numbers occur. I will use the text and the correct formulas to create the proper solutions of the two projects that are required and solve for the equations...
In project one, I will move the constant term to the right side of the equation and square the coefficient of the original x term and add it to both sides of the equation.
Solve for project one: Part A
X2 – 2x – 13 = 0.
4x*4 + 8 = 52
4x*4 + 8 +16 = 52 + 16
4x*4 + 8 + 16 = 68
2x + 4 = 12 2x + 12 + -12
2x = 4 2x = -6
X = 2 x = -3
Part C.
X2 + 12x – 64 + 0
4xsquared + 12x = 64 – 4 squared
16 + 48 = 64 – 16
64 = 48 + 4x squared
In project two, I will substitute numbers for x to see if prime numbers occur and then try to find a number for x when substituted in the formula, yields a composite number.
Project 2, Part A.
X2 – x + 41
8 x 8 + 41= 105 not a prime number
3 x 3 + 41 = 50 not a prime number
7 x 7 + 41 = 90 not a prime number
2 x 2 + 41 = 46 not a prime number
6 x 6 +...

QUADRATICEQUATIONS
Recall that an algebraic equation of the second degree is written in general form as
ax 2 + bx + c = 0, a ≠ 0
It is called a quadraticequation in x. The coefficient ‘a’ is the first or leading coefficient, ‘b’
is the second or middle coefficient and ‘c’ is the constant term (or third coefficient).
For example, 7x² + 2x + 5 = 0,

x² + x + 1 = 0,

Class X: Maths Chapter 2: Polynomials Top Concepts: 1. The graph of a polynomial p(x) of degree n can intersects or touch the x axis at atmost n points. 2. 3. 4. A polynomial of degree n has at most n distinct real zeroes. The zero of the polynomial p(x) satisfies the equation p(x) = 0. For any linear polynomial ax + b, zero of the polynomial will be given by the expression (-b/a). 5. The number of real zeros of the polynomial is the number of times its graph touches or intersects x axis. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. A polynomial p(x) of degree n will have atmost n real zeroes A linear polynomial has atmost one real zero. A quadratic polynomial has atmost two real zeroes. A cubic polynomial has atmost three real zeroes. Division algorithm can also be used to find the zeroes of a polynomial. If ‘a’ and ‘b’ are two zeroes of a fourth degree polynomial f(x), then other two zeroes can be found out by dividing f(x) by (x-a)(x-b) 11. If f(x) = q(x) g(x) + r(x), and r(x) = 0 then polynomial g(x) is a factor of polynomial f(x). 12. Process of dividing a polynomial f(x) by another polynomial g(x) is as follows: Step1: To obtain the first term of the quotient, divide the highest degree term of the dividend by the highest degree term of the divisor. Then carry out the division process. Step2: To obtain the second term of the quotient, divide the highest degree term of the new dividend by the highest degree term of the divisor. Then again carry out the division...
