Eleven is the number between ten and twelve. Eleven is ten plus one. An eleven-sided figure is called a hendecagon or an undecagon.
An ellipse looks like a flattened circle. It consists of all the points in a plane that satisfy the following: a+b=(twice the length of the semi-major axis), where a is the distance from one focus to the point on the ellipse, and b is the distance from the other focus to the same point on the ellipse.
The empty set (also called the null set) is the set that has no elements.
An enneadecagon is a nineteen-sided polygon.

An exponent is a power that a number is raised to. For example, in 23, the exponent is 3.
Exponential notation (also called scientific notation) is a short-hand way of expressing very small or very large numbers; this system avoids using a lot of zeros by using powers (exponents). In scientific notation, there is a number between 1 and 10 multiplied by a power of ten. For example, the number 250 written in scientific notation is 2.5 x 102. For another example, the number 0.000052 written in scientific notation is 5.2 x 10-5.
An algebraic expression consists of one or more variables, constants, and operations, like 3x-4. Each part of an expression that is added or subtracted is called a term For example, the expression 4x2-2x+7 has three terms.
