### Linear Word Problems is a sub-topic under ....

• A.

Decimals

• B.

Algebra

• C.

Proportions

• D.

Ratio

B. Algebra
Explanation
Linear Word Problems is a sub-topic under Algebra. This is because linear word problems involve using algebraic equations to solve real-world problems. In these types of problems, variables are used to represent unknown quantities, and equations are set up to represent the relationships between these quantities. By solving these equations, we can find the values of the variables and solve the word problems. Therefore, linear word problems are a specific application of algebra in a real-world context.

### In Word Problems, English words are translated into ....

• A.

Mathematics

• B.

Physics

• C.

Biology

• D.

Creative Art

A. Mathematics
Explanation
In word problems, English words are translated into mathematics. Word problems involve using mathematical operations and concepts to solve real-life situations. By translating the information provided in the problem into mathematical equations and expressions, we can find the solution. This process helps us apply mathematical principles to practical scenarios and develop problem-solving skills. Therefore, mathematics is the correct answer as it is the subject that deals with the translation and application of English words in word problems.

### Represent unknown numbers with ...

• A.

Constants

• B.

Coefficients

• C.

Operators

• D.

Variables

D. Variables
Explanation
Unknown numbers are typically represented by variables in mathematics. Variables are symbols that can represent any unknown quantity or value. They are used to create algebraic expressions and equations, allowing for the manipulation and solving of mathematical problems. By using variables, we can generalize mathematical relationships and find solutions that apply to a wide range of specific numbers or situations. Therefore, representing unknown numbers with variables is a fundamental concept in mathematics.

### Who was a known for a topic in Maths?

• A.

Pythagoras

• B.

Albert Einstein

• C.

Isaac Newton

• D.

Bill Nye

A. Pythagoras
Explanation
Pythagoras is known for his contributions to the field of mathematics, particularly for his theorem in geometry known as the Pythagorean theorem. This theorem states that in a right-angled triangle, the square of the length of the hypotenuse (the side opposite the right angle) is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides. Pythagoras' theorem is fundamental in various mathematical applications and has significant implications in geometry, trigonometry, and even physics. Therefore, Pythagoras is widely recognized as a prominent figure in the history of mathematics.
