See Arithmetic sequence.

Constant of variation
See Power function.

Coordinate plane
See Cartesian coordinate system.

Difference of two vectors
<u1, u2>  <v1, v2> = <u1  v1, u2  v2> or <u1, u2, u3>  <v1, v2, v3> = <u1  v1, u2  v2, u3  v3>

Distance (on a number line)
The distance between real numbers a and b, or a  b

equation of an ellipse
