Write or read out the following formulae:

1. C = πD
c equals pi d
/si: i:kwəlz  pɑɪ diː/
2. 2S = U + V
two s = u plus v
/tu: es i:kwəlz  ju: plʌs vi:/
3. x = an + b2
x equals a to the n plus b squared
/eks i:kwəlz  eɪ tə ðɪ en plʌs biː skwɛəd/
4. V = u + at
v equals u plus a t
/viː i:kwəlz  ju: plʌs eɪ ti:/
5. V = π r2h
v equals pi r squared h
/viː i:kwəlz paɪ ɑː skwɛəd eɪʧ/
6. E = mc2
e equals m c squared
/iː i:kwəlz em si: skwɛəd/
7. A = πr2
a equals pi r squared
/eɪː i:kwəlz paɪ ɑː skwɛəd/
8. y = x2 – 2
y equals x squared minus 2
/waɪ i:kwəlz eks skwɛəd maɪnəs tuː/
9. a2 + b2 + c2 = 1
a squared plus b squared plus c squared equals 1
/eɪ skwɛəd plʌs bi: skwɛəd plʌs si: skwɛəd i:kwəlz wʌn/
10. x = an-1
x equals a to the n minus 1
/eks i:kwəlz eɪ tə ðɪ en maɪnəs wʌn/
