MATH 95 Midterm 1 Study Guide ____________________________________________________________________________  Lines The points on a line satisfy an equation of the form: Ax+By+C=0 Slope= rise Slope = change(y) m = (y 1y2)/(1 -2 ) run change(x) Equations: 1. Standard Form Ax+By+C=0 2. Slope-Intercept y=mx+b 3. Point-Slope y-y1=m(x-x 1 Parallel = lines have same slope ex. 2 Perpendicular = lines have negative reciprocal slopes ex. -½ Example: Find an equation of the line through (-1,2) & (3,1) 2−1 = −1 −1−3 4 m= -¼ −1 y= 4 x+b −1 2= 4 (−1)+b 1 2= 4b b= 1¾  Systems of Linear Equations Substitution Method Addition Method 1) Solve one of equations for 1 1) Multiply both equations to get variable LCM and FOIL 2) Substitute into other sign 3) Use formula from one to find remaining variable Substitution Method Solve 2x+y=1 & 3x+2y=0 X Y y=-2x+1 2(2)+y= 1 3x+2(- 2x+1)=0 4+y=1 -4 -4 3x-4x+2=0 y=-3 -x+2=0 -2 -2 −x=−2 −1 x = 2 (2,-3) Addition Method Solve 3x-4y=-2 5x+3y=1 X Y 3 (3x-4y=- 5 (3x-4y=-2) 2) -3 (5x+3y=1) 4 (5x+3y=1) 15x-20y=-10 -15x-9y=-3 9x-12y=-6 20x+12y=4 −29 y=−13 −29 29 x=−2 29 13 −2 y= 29 x= 29 −2 13 ( , ) 29 29  Factoring To factor something is to write it as a product (multiply) of 2 or more things Greatest Common Factor (GCF): largest # that divides into 2 numbers GCF of 18 & 12 18: 1,2,3,6,9,18 12: 1,2,3,4,6,12 GCF = 6 Least Common Multiple (LCM): smallest # that multiplies both GCF of 18 & 12 18: 18,36,54,72 12: 12,24,36,48 LCM = 36 2 3 3 2 48a c & 18a b 6a Factor GCF = 6a (8c +3ab) AC Method 1) Compute AC 2) Find numbers that multiply to ac & add to b 3) Fill in boxes 4) Factor out GCF of each row / column 5) Answer on edges! 2x +x-6 ac=(2)(-6) = -12 x +4 2 2x 4 x -3x - 6 2x-3 (2x-3)(x+4)  Multiplication & Division of Rational Expressions Rational = RATIO Multiplying Dividing a c ac a c a d ad × = ÷ = × = b d bd b d b c bc Multiply 2 2 (x −2x−8) × (x +3x+2) x −4 x +x−20 (x−4)(x+2)(x+1)(x+2) (x+2)(x−2)(x+5)(x−4) (x+1)(x+2) (x−2)(x+5) Divide (x+2) (x−3) ÷ (x+1) (x+2) (x+2) (x−3) (x+1)× (x+2) (x−3) (x+1)
