8th Grade Math Help

Eighth grade Math help is good for those students, who need more time to understand Math topics. This learning process gives personalized attention to students along with detailed explanation of each concept. Most importantly, students can take these one-on-one learning sessions at any time by staying at home. To get these educational sessions, they do not need to go any place and attend the class. The only thing they need to do is scheduling sessions with tutors. Some essential topics are added in class 8 Math syllabus and to cover these topics, students can take as many sessions as they need. TutorVista is a well-known name among students as it provides worthwhile learning sessions to students of different grades.

Tutoring programs designed for grade 8 students cover different Math topics including algebra, number system, mensuration, data handling and others. Moreover, students can choose homework help and assessment help from TutorVista.Online learning programs are well-designed and most importantly, students get one-on-one sessions on any topic. Vast subject coverage is one of the advantages of this learning method. Apart from this, students can download Math worksheets and practice these repeatedly to get more convenient with each topic. However, by following this way, they can revise each chapter in a systematic manner. Integers, algebraic expressions, fractions and decimals are some important topics, which students need to practice rigorously before their exams. Virtual whiteboard and chat option are two online tools that make each learning session active as well as effective for students.

Students can schedule their online sessions as per their convenience and solve all Math problems in an organized manner. As we all know, Math needs constant practice and hence, students should practice Math worksheets on a regular basis. While solving Math worksheets, students may face many problems and to solve these problems clearly, they can choose online sessions with expert Math tutors. In this session, they can understand each problem in a step-by-step manner. Students can opt for sessions for solving different Math problems of grade 8. Each of these sessions is done under the supervision of subject experts and therefore, these are worthwhile for students in all manners.

Solved Examples

Question 1: Determine the value of y when x = 9 given y = $\sqrt{9x}$ + 2x.
Solution:
 

Given, y = $\sqrt{9x}$ + 2x

Put x = 9

=> y = $\sqrt{9 * 9}$ + 2 * 9

=> y = $\sqrt{9^2}$ + 18

=> y = 9 + 18

=> y = 27
 

Question 2: Express the 72 as product of prime factors.
Solution:
 
Number = 72

Prime factors of 72

72 = 2 * 2 * 2 * 3 * 3

 

Question 3: Subtract $2\frac{3}{5}$ - $1\frac{3}{5}$
Solution:
 
Convert mixed fractions into improper fractions

$2\frac{3}{5}$ = $\frac{13}{5}$

and $1\frac{3}{5}$ = $\frac{8}{5}$

=> $\frac{13}{5}$ - $\frac{8}{5}$ = $\frac{13 - 8}{5}$

= $\frac{5}{5}$

= 1

=> $2\frac{3}{5}$ - $1\frac{3}{5}$ = 1
 

Question 4: The sum of two numbers is 13. If two times one of these numbers exceeds three times the other number by 1, find the numbers.
Solution:
 
Let the numbers be x and y

The sum of numbers = 13

=> x + y = 13                 ...............(1)
and
2x - 3y = 1                    .................(2)

Step 2:

(1) => y = 13 - x

Step 3:

Put y = 13 - x in equation (2)

=> 2x - 3(13 - x) = 1

=> 2x - 39 + 3x = 1

=> 5x = 40

=> x = 8

Step 4:
Put x = 8 in equation(1)

=> 8 + y = 13

=> y = 13 - 8 = 5

Hence numbers are 8 and 5.
