Synonyms of "Figure" and their differences

A: 'I figured out the math problem.'
'I SOLVED the math problem.'
Both OK. Same meaning.

Resolved is not the same. To decide or determine (verb - resolve in present tense.) Or to be decided or determined (adjective).
Used in 2 different ways:
'I am resolved to begin attending school everyday.' (adjective)
'The group has resolved to address their problems by solving them in parts.' (verb, past tense)

A: They work similarly but I'll try my best to explain it.

To figure out something is to understand something in your head or while you're doing it through trial and error.

"I figured out how to make hamburgers." (Implied that you experimented on it)

To find out is discover the fact of the matter through investigation, observation, or research.

"I found out how to make hamburgers." (Implied that you read about it somewhere)

That said, saying that you "found something out" feels more factual than having "figured something out".

Q: What is the difference between figure and diagram and chart and graph ?
A: A figure can be any of these. I think it is kind of an all purpose word for labeling items that are not text (all the graphs and charts etc are labeled "figure 1, figure 2...) A diagram shows the flow of a process or the workings of a device visually (think of a picture with arrows and text boxes explaining different parts of it. ) A chart is any table or list that organizes text or numerical information outside of the normal paragraph. And a graph has an X and Y axis with numerical data plotted along it.
