Skip to content. The ALT text used on graphical equations is similar to, but not exactly like Math Speak; a few conventions are borrowed. Exponents are read as supe followed by the exponent then base to signify terms representing the exponent have ended. Subscrpts are read as sub followed be the subscript, then base. Parenthesis are read in line as they occur: left parens opens the parenthetical and right parens closes it. Square brackets are read as left bracket then right bracket. Fractions are always read as numerator followed by denominator. One half would be numerator one denominator two.

## Practice Problems

### Introduction

### Objectives

This section contains basic TVOM practice problems. To complete this section, you must fully understand the basis of TVOM and be familiar with definitions and terminologies used in TVOM.

- If you find that you are having difficulty completing the simple practice problems, you may want to review sections 1-4.
- If you find that you are able to complete the simple practice problems easily, you may want to proceed to the advanced practice problems.

This section will include the following:

- Five suggested steps for setting up a TVOM problem.
- Simple practice problems in which you have options to solve the problem using TVOM equations, or using a calculator.
- Advanced practice problems in which you have options to solve the problem using TVOM equations, or using a calculator.

Note: If you are not familiar with your calculator's functions, you may want to locate a copy of your manual or review section 4 of this tutorial.

Upon completing this section of the tutorial, students will be able to:

- Set up simple and advanced TVOM.
- Solve simple and advanced TVOM problems.
- Use a calculator to find the answer to simple and advanced TVOM problems.
