The four figures of power of base numbers tables is need to be created for easy synchronization with existing Logarithm table of power of base 10 which is working on four figures. Although the five figures of power of base numbers tables is more accurate because it is having less approximation in its establishment. The four figure tables is easy to compute doing utilization because it is having less digit to work with. This paper presents the four and five figures of Kifilideen (Power of ...

Abstract This research work studies the gross national income on consumption expenditure of the federal republic of Nigeria from 1992 – 2011 It is aimed at fitting a prediction equation for gross national income over consumption expenditure, gross national income over time, to forecast the future national income and to test significant difference between government and private final consumption expenditures. To achieve these, the methods of analysis employed are regression and correlation a...

ABSTRACT The concept of cycle index was first discovered by Howard Redfield in 1927. The cycle index formulas of various group actions have been computed since then by various authors. The formulas have been used to count graphs in mathematics and chemical compounds in chemistry. Therefore cycle index is a very useful tool in enumeration. It is widely applied in other fields of study like biology and jewelry industry. The cycle index of the symmetric group acting on ordered pairs, triples an...

The objectives of this study were to assess the applicability of GeoGebra in the teaching of mathematics in secondary schools in Kenya. The relationship in performance of students taught with the help of this innov...

ABSTRACT This study assesses the performance of three numerical turbulence models; k -e , k -w and k -w - SST in predicting heat transfer due to natural convection inside an air filled cavity. The heat transfer due to natural convection inside a rectangular closed cavity should be modeled to include the effect of turbulence for Rayleigh number greater than or equal to 9 10 .The non-linear terms i j u u and qi u in the averaged momentum and energy equations respectively were modeled using...

ABSTRACT This study models natural turbulent convection in a rectangular enclosure with localized heating and cooling. The equations used in modeling the flow are the equation of continuity, momentum equation and the energy equation. These equations are decomposed using the Reynolds decomposition then the decomposed equations are non – dimensionalised and reduced using the Boussinesq assumptions. The model that is considered is a rectangular enclosure with one side wall being heated and the...

ABSTRACT Magnetohydrodynamic boundary layer flow involving a fluid of varying viscosity subject to thermal radiation and Newtonian heating has various applications in industry and engineering some of the applications include designing of cooling systems used in electronic devices, cooling of nuclear reactors, harvesting of solar energy, thermal insulation, heat exchangers and in geothermal reservoirs. Heat transfer by thermal radiation is of significance to engineering processes that occurs ...

ABSTRACT There have been many investigations on the combinatorial structures and invariants over the group actions on the subsets of its elements. Studies on Group Theory have yielded varied and important results in the advancement of Algebra. Several studies have also been made on Graph Theory. Some Mathematicians have studied the concept of automorphisms on graphs thereby yielding important results. Automorphism groups from graphs containing the cyclic and dihedral groups, Cn and Dn respect...

ABSTRACT The action of the symmetric group Sn on ordered subsets from the set X 1, 2, , n is an aspect that seems to have received little attention for a long time. Most studies have focused on the action of n S on unordered subsets leaving many properties about its action on ordered subsets unknown. This research is set to determine the rank and subdegrees of n S acting on r X , the set of all ordered r-element subsets from X. Particular cases when r 2, 3 and 4 have b...

ABSTRACT The Galois group of a certain type of field extension is a specific group associated with the field extension. The study of field extensions and their relationship to the polynomials that give rise to them via the Galois groups came to be called Galois Theory in honor of Everiste Galois who first discovered them in 1830. In this project we find the extensions of whose Galois group is isomorphic to, , and the quaternion group . In each case we identify the extension, then work ou...

Abstract The concept of the cycle index formulas of a permutation group was discovered in the year 1937. Since then cycle index formulas of several groups have been studied by di_erent scholars. For instance the cycle index of the dihedral group Dn acting on the set of vertices of a regular ngon is known and has been applied in enumeration of di_erent mathematical structures. In this study the relationship between the cycle index formula of a semidirect product group and the cycle index f...

ABSTRACT Trigonometry topics are very important in mathematics education as trigonometric functions have many applications in fields such as adverse physics, mechanical and electrical engineering, music, astronomy and biology. Any challenges encountered by students in learning affect overall performance in the subject. The purpose of the study was to determine the pedagogical factors affecting learning of the topic in secondary schools and recommendation made. The objectives of the study were...

Abstract Platonic solids are 3-dimensional regular, convex polyhedrons. Each of the faces are equidistant and equiangular to each other in any of the solids. They derive their name from the ancient Greek philosopher, Plato who wrote about them in his dialogue, the Timaeus as reported by Cornford (2014). The solids features have fascinated mathematicians for decades including the renown geometer, Euclid: In his Book XIII of the Elements, as rewrote by Heath et al. (1956), he successfully�...

Abstract The action of the symmetric group S5 on the cosets of its non-maximal subgroups is an aspect that seems to have received less attention for sometime. Most studies have infact looked on the action of symmetric group S5 on the cosets of its maximal subgroups leaving many properties about its action on non-maximal subgroups unknown. This project has therefore looked at the action of the symmetric group S5, on the cosets of some of its non-maximal subgroups. Namely; the cyclic grou...
