P (2)Integer that remains unchanged when its digits are written in reverse order.
P (2)A method for finding the volume of a solid of revolution. The volume equals the product of the area of the region being rotated times the distance traveled by the centroid of the region in one rotation.
P (1)For a given point, called the focus, and a given line not through the focus, called the directrix, it is the locus of points such that the distance to the focus equals the distance to the directrix.
P (2)The assumption that, given a point P and a line m not through P, there is exactly one line passing through P that is parallel to m.
P (1)A polyhedron with six faces, all of which are parallelograms.
P (2)A system of equations with more than one dependent variable; are often used to represent the position of a moving point.
P (2)A derivative of a function that has more than one independent variable
P (3)A differential equation that contains at least one partial derivative.
P (2)The process of writing any proper rational expression as a sum of proper rational expressions.
P (4)A finite sequence of the form a = x0 < x1 < x2 < ... < xn = b.
P (5)Rewriting a positive integer as the sum of smaller positive integers; the sum of any two adjacent elements in a row can be found between them on the next row; each row begins and ends with 1.
P (2)A number n for which the sum of all the positive integer factors of n which are less than n add up to n.
