Volume of a Cylinder
Volume of a Cylinder
$$V = \pi r^2 h$$

A cylinder with a radius of r and height h units has a volume of V cubic units. One of those simple formulas that tends to be forgotten.

Volume of a Triangular Prism
Volume of a Triangular Prism
$$V = {1 \over 2} B * H * L$$

A simple adaptation of the Area of a Triangle formula (http://automathic.org/114) to calculate the volume (V) of a Triangular Prism (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triangular_prism) with a base of B, height of H, and length of L.

Like what you see? There's so much more.

Circumference of a Circle
Circumference of a Circle
$$C = 2 \pi r = \pi d$$

"Circumference is the linear distance around the outside of a closed curve or circular object." It can be calculated using the above, where C is the circumference using either the radius (r) or the diameter (d), depending on what's convenient.

Radius of a Circle from its Area
Radius of a Circle from its Area
$$r = \sqrt{A \over \pi}$$

If you need to find the Radius ($r$) of a circle, and only have the Area ($A$) to work with, you can use this handy formula.

If you have the Circumference, use this formula: www.automathic.org/152_radius-of-a-circle

Area of a Kite
Area of a Kite
$$Area = { d_1 * d_2 \over 2}$$

If you know the lengths of the diagonals — d1 and d2 — of a kite, finding the area is simple with the formula above.

Otherwise, you can use this method:

$$Area = a * b * sin(c)$$

Where $a, b$ are the lengths of two unequal sides, and $c$ is the angle between them ($sin$ being the trignometric function sine https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sine)

Area of an Ellipse
$$Area = \pi ab$$

The area of an ellipse can be found when you know the measures of the major and minor semi-axis, $a$ and $b$. Image courtesy of Wikimedia commons, licensed as creative commons.

Surface Area of a Sphere
$$4 \pi r^2$$

The surface area of a sphere can be found with the above formula, where $r$ is the radius. It can also be notated as $$\pi d^2$$ Where $d$ is the diameter.

Improper Fraction to Mixed Number
Improper Fraction to Mixed Number
$${a \over b} = quotient + {remainder \over divisor}$$

To convert an Improper Fraction to a Mixed Number:

• • Divide the numerator by the denominator (with long division)
• • The result (quotient) of the division becomes the who part of the mixed number
• • The fractional part of the mixed number is the remainder over the original denominator

To convert the other way, use this formula: http://automathic.org/158_convert-a-mixed-number-to-an-improper-fraction
