Normal Math-Formulas

Introduction

Following you find a nomination of various mathematical formulas. They should be a reference and also be helpful, to close possibly knowledge gaps. Because without good math knowledge complex games and applications can't be realized.

Note: Instead of the used sign '^' please use the PureBasic function Pow() from the 'Math' library. 'PI' stands for the constant value "PI = 3.1415...". An example for realizing such a formula in PureBasic code: A = PI*r^2 will be A = PI*Pow(r,2)

Memory consumption of a picture

bits = Colordepth of the picture (in Bits)

size = a * b * (bits / 8)

Distance between two points

(x1|y1) = XY coordinates of point No. 1
(x2|y2) = XY coordinates of point No. 2
a = Distance between the points

a = SQR((x1-x2)^2 + (y1-y2)^2)

"Mixing" of two values

a = 1st Number
b = 2nd Number
v = Relationship (0% - 100%)
e = Result
