Member it is a term that has multiple meanings. From the Latin word membrum, can refer to each tip of the animals or of the Humans which is articulated with the trunk.
In the persons, the members are the legs (which can be mentioned as lower limbs) and the arms (the superior members). It can therefore be stated that each individual has four limbs or extremities: two legs (one right and one left) and two arms (one right and one left).
To the penis it is also called virile member or simply a member. It is the male sexual organ, used in copulation and in the excretion of urine. Member characteristics vary according to species and even according to each individual.
As a curious fact, the use of a member in reference to a man’s sexual organ can appear both in a formal and even technical sphere as well as in an informal one, with small differences. Usually in the first case it is mentioned as virile member while in the second, like member. In a conversation between people who are not confident enough to talk about their genitalia using a language direct, resorting to this synonym may be appropriate.
The member of a organization, a association or one entity it may be referred to as a member. For example: “The detainee is a member of a terrorist group that has a strong presence in the central region of the country”, “For five years I was a member of the academic committee of the Universidad del Sudeste”, “My neighbor is a member of an NGO that works to clean the beaches”.
Members of associations or entities usually have rights and obligations that differentiate them from other people. In the case of a terrorist group or government agency, its members have access to different degrees of information about strategies for its different attack and defense operations, as well as secret keys, building addresses and names of people that are not public knowledge.
In non-profit organizations that carry out humanitarian tasks, their members take responsibility for completing different jobs simply for the sake of helping others. Although these are not secret operations, for organizational reasons the members are also given certain data that are not made public, in the same way that a specific response is expected from them.
In the field of math, a member is a expression of a equation. The members are separated from each other by the sign of inequality or equality.
It can be said, therefore, that the expressions that are located on each side of these signs are the members of the equation. Let’s look at a case:
3x + 5 = 2x – 3
3x + 5 is a member, while 2x – 3 is another member. On the other hand, 3x, 5, 2x Y 3 are the terms of the equation.
The correct learning of the different topics in which the mathematical members appear is necessary to solve many types of unknown, which are represented by means of variables, letters of different alphabets that do not have a fixed value at the global level, but that do keep it within the limits of each problem; for example: x it is not always the same, but it does represent the same value within a given equation.
In this framework we speak of clear the variables, that is, to pass the elements from one member to another until a variable is completely isolated and its value can be ascertained. For this we must respect the rules of mathematics, as appropriate.
