Which agrees with e to fourth decimal places 6 6.5 applications of decimals and percent  Addition and subtraction of Decimals  To add or subtract decimal numbers, line up the decimal points in a column and perform the operation  Example  .46+3.9+12.58= 16.94  12.1-8.723= 3.377  Multiplication and division of Decimals  Multiplication: multiply in the same manner as integers are multiplied. The number of decimal point in the product is the sum of the numbers of places to the right of the decimal points in the factors  Division: Move the decimal point to the right the same number of places in the divisor and dividend so as to obtain a whole number in the divisor. Divide in the same manner as integers are divided. The number of decimals places to the right of the decimal point in the quotient in the same as the number of places to the right of the dividend.  Example:  4.613 x 2.52= 11.62476  65.175/ 8.25= 7.9  Rules for Rounding Decimals 1. Locate the place to which the number is being rounded 2. Look at the next digit to the right of the place to which the number is being rounded 3. If this digit is less than 5 drop all digits to the right of the place to which the number is being rounded. Do not change the digit in the place to which the number is being rounded. (9.43 turns to 9.4) If the digit is 5 or greater add one to the digit in the place to which the number is being rounded. (9.45 turns to 9.5)  Example:  Round 3.917 to the nearest hundredth  3.92  Round 14.39646 to the nearest thousandth  14.3964 turns to 14.396  Percent 1% = 1/100 =0.01  Converting between decimals (a fraction) and percents  to convert a percent to a decimal, drop the percent symbol and move the decimal point two places to the left inserting zeros as placeholders if necessary  To convert a decimal to a percent, move the decimal two places to the right, inserting zeros as placeholders if necessary, and add the percent symbol  To convert a fraction to a percent, convert the fraction to a decimal then convert the decimal to a percent  Example: convert each percent to a decimal  3.4%-> 0.034  150% -> 1.5  Example: convert each decimal to a percent  0.13 -> 13% 2  2.3 -> 230%  Convert each fraction to a percent 3  5 -> 0.6 -> 60%  14 -> .56 -> 56% 25  Example: find 18% of 250  250x .18 = 45  example: what percent of 500 is 75  Cross multiply and divide  75= x 500 100  500x=7500  x=15  Example: 38 is 5% of what number  Cross multiply and divide 38 5  = x 100  3500/5=x 3 Q. How much of this amount (41.2 billion) was spent of pet food About 16.2 billion  Finding percent Increase or Decrease  To find the percent increase from a to b, where b>a, subtract a from b, and divide this result by a. Convert to a percent b−a  a ∗100  To find the percent decrease from a to b, where b<a, subtract b from a and divide this result by a. convert to a percent a−b∗100  a  Example: 4  An electronics store marked up a laptop computer from their cost of $1,200 to a selling price of $1,464. What was the percent markup?  22% increase  The enrollment in a community college declined from 12,750 during one school year to 11,350 to the following year. Find the percent decrease to the nearest tenth.  About 11% decrease 5 7.1 Linear Equations  Linear Equations in One Variable o An equation in the variable x is linear if it can be written in the form  Ax+B=C o Where A,B, and C are real numbers, with A 0. o Note) a linear equation in one variable is also called a first-degree equation, because the greatest power on the variable is one. o If the variable in an equation is replaced by a real number that makes the statement true, then that number is a solution of the equation.  Example: find the solution of x-3=5 o X=8  Thus, 8 is a solution or {8} is the solution set  Equivalent Equations are equations with the same solution set o Ex: 8x+1=17, 8x=16, x=2  Addition Property of Equality o For all real number A,B and C, the equations  A=B and A+C=B+C are equivalent  Multiplication Property of Equality o For all real number A, B and C where C does not equal zero the equations  A=B and AC=BC are equivalent o Example solve  4x-2x-5=4+6x+3  (4-2)x-5=6x+(4+3) -> 2x-5=6x+7  2x-5 (+5) =6x +7+5 ->2x=6x+12  -4x+12 overall x=-3  Solving a Linear Equation in One Variable 1. Clear fractions. Multiply a common denominator 2. Simplify each side separately 3. Isolate the variable terms on one side 4. Transform so that the coefficient of the variable is 1 5. Check the solution into the original equation  Example: solve each equation. Decide whether it’s a conditional equation, and identity or a contradiction o 5x-9=4(x-3)  x=-3 (conditional) 2 o 5x-15=5(x-3)  identity o 5x-15=5(x-4)  contradiction no solution  Solving for a Specified Variable o Transform the equation so that all terms containing the specified variable are on one side and all others are on the other side o Simplify each side separately o Divide both sides by the factor that is multiplied by the specified variable  Solve the formula P=2L+2W for W o P-2L=2W P−2 L o W= 2  A mathematical model is an equation (or inequality) that describes the relationship between two quantities. A linear model is a linear equation o Example: If a range hood removes contaminants at a flow rate of F liters of air per second, then the percent P of contaminants that are also removed from the surrounding air can be modeled by the linear equation  P=1.06F+7.18  Where 10F 75 what flow rate F must a range hood have to remove 50% of the contaminants of the air?  The flow rate is about 40.4 L per second 3 4 7.1 Applications of Linear Equations  Solving an Applied Problem 1. Read the problem carefully 2. Assign a variable to represent the unknown value 3. Write an equation 4. Solve the equation 5. State the answer. does it seem reasonable? 6. Check the answer  Problem-solving Hint: Two unknown quantities. Then choose a variable to represent one of the unknowns and then represent the other quantity in terms of the same variable, using the information for the problem  Example: Two outstanding major League pitches in recent years are Randy Johnson and Johan Santana. In 2004, they combined for a total of 555 strikeouts. Johnson had 24 more strikeouts than Santana. How many strikeouts did each pitcher have?  Johnson had 290 strikeouts and Santana had 265  Example: a woodworking project calls for three pieces of wood. The longest piece must be twice the length of the middle sized piece, and the shortest piece must be 10 inches shorter than the middle sized pieces. If the three pieces are to be cut from a board 70 inches how long can each piece be? 1. Let x = the length of the middle side 2. Longest = 2x, shortest x-10  Mixture and interest Problems  Percents often are used in problems involving mixing different concentrations of substance or different interest rates. In each case, to get the amount of pure substance of the interest, we multiply  Mixture problems  BASE * rate (%) = percentage  Interest problems  Principal * rate(%) = interest  Example  If a chemist has 40 liters of a 35% acid solution, how much pure acid is there? 2  40(amount of solution) *.35 (rate of concentration) = 14 (this is about 14 liters of pure acid)  If $1,300 is invested for one year at 2% simple interest, how much interest is earned in one year?  1300(principal amount) *.02(interest rate)= $26 (interest)  Ex) A chemist must mix 8 liters of a 40% acid solution with some 70% solution to obtain a 50% solution. How much of the 70% solution should be used?  40% (8) + (70%) (x) = 50%  8+x  Amount of pure acid  (8*.4) + x(.7) = (8+x)(.5)  3.2+.7x=4+.5x  32+7x = 40+5x  7x-5x=40-32 (a) 2x=8 (b) x=4  we need 4 liters of 70% acid  Ex) After winning the state lottery, Theo Lieber has 40,000 to invest. He will put part of the money in an account paying 4% interest and the remaining into stocks paying 6% interest. His accountants tells him that the total annual income from these investments should be $2,040. How much should he invest at each rate?  *Interest earned = (principal) * (interest rate)  4% interest + 6% interest (x)=2,040  40,000-x 3  Earned interest  (40,000 –x)(.04) +(x)(.06)=2,040 (a) multiply by 100  (40,000-x)(4)+x*6=204,000  160000-4x+6x=204,000  2x=204,000-160,000  2x=44,000  x=22,000  18,000 goes into the 4% and 22,000 goes into the 6%  Ex) for a bill totaling $5.65, a cashier received 25 coins consisting of nickels and quarters. How many of each denomination did the cashier receive?  Let x= the number of nickels  25-x = the number of quarters  Total value  5x+ 25(25-x)=565  5x+625-25x=565  -20x=565-625  x=-60/-20  x=+3  Distance= times * speed. Here, speed can be rate  Motion problems: Distance, Rate, Time Relationship  D=rt, r=d/t, t=d/r  Example 4  The speed of sound is 1,088 feet per second at level at 32 degrees. In 5 seconds under these conditions, how far does sound travel  1088*5= 5440ft  Example: the winnder of the first Indianapolis 500 race (in 1911) was Ray Harroun, driving a Marmon Wasp at an average speed of 74.59 per hour. How long di did it take the 500 mile course?  Time =distance/speed  500/74.59 =6.7 hours  Example: Greg Sabo can bike from home to work in ¾ hour/ by bus the trip takes ¼ hour. If the bus travels 20 mph fast than Greg rides his bike, how far is it to his workplace.  Let x= distance  Speed of bike =x/.75  Speed of bus =x/.25  x/.25-x/.75=20  (x*4/1 – x*4/3= 20) *3  x*4*3-x*4/3*3=20*3  12x-4x=60  8x=60  x=60/8=7.5 miles 5 7.5 Properties of Exponents and Scientific Notation  Exponential expression o If a is a real number and n is a natural number, then the exponential expression a^n is defined as o a^n= a*a*a*a…. o the number a is the base and n is the exponent  example: evaluate o 7^2=49 o (-2)^4=-16 o -4^2=16 o -8^4 = -4096 o (-8)^4 =4096  Product rule for exponents o If m and n are natural numbers and a is any real number then, o a^m* a^n= a^m+n o 3^4*3^7= 3^11 o y^3*y^8*y^2= y^13 o (5y^2)(-3y^4)= -15y^6 o (7p^3q)(2p^5q^2)= 14p^8q^3  Zero Exponent o If a is any nonzero real number than a^0=1  Negative Exponent o For any natural number n and any nonzero real number a, just make it a fraction with 1 above it  A^-n=1/a^n o Example:  2−3  (5z)^-2 = 1/  3^-1+4^-1  1/3+1/4= 7/12 b 2^3 = 8 3^2/2^3= 9/8  Quotient Rule of Exponents 2 o If a is any non zero number and m and n are integers then o 3^7-2=3^5 o p^6-3= p^4 o 7^4/7^6= 7^-2) 1/49  Power rules for Exponents o If a and b are real numbers and m and n are integers then  Special Rules for negative exponents 3 o If a0 and b0 and n is and integer then  Example 83 o 2 p)=8 p  Scientific Notation o A number written in scientific notion when it is expressed in the form  A a∗10 ,where1a|<10,∧nisaninteger o Ex:  8,200,000  8.2X10^6  .000072  7.2X10^-5 o Example: Convert each number from scientific notation to standard notation  6.93x10^5  693,000  4.7x10^-6  .00000047 4 7.4 Linear Inequalities  Linear inequality in One Variable o A linear inequality in one variable can be written in the form  Ax+b<C o The symbol < may be replaced by >,  Addition Property of Inequality o A<B and A+C< B+C o Have the same solution  Example: solve 7+3x>2x-5 o 3x>2x-12 o x>-12  Multiplication Property of Inequality o Let C 0  If C>0 then the inequalities have the same solution o If C< 0 then the inequalities have the same solution  Division Proptery of Inequality o The same rule as multiplication property of inequality  Solve o 3x<-18 o divide each side by 6 and the answer is x<-6 or (-,- 6)  -4x8 o divide each side by -4 o x-2  Solving a linear Inequality in one variable a. Simplify each side separately b. Isolate the variable terns on one side i. Use the addition property of inequality (a- c)x<d-b c. Isolate the variable i. Use the multiplication property of inequality x<k,x>k, etc. ii. *note: reverse the direction of arrow when divide by a negative  example: o 5(x-3)-7x4(x-3)+9 o x is less than or equal to negative 2  ex: o John has test grades of 86,88,78 on his first three tests in calculus, if he wants an average of at least 80 after his fourth test, what are the possible scores he can make on his fourth test?  Let x= josh’s score on his fourth test  86+88+78+x/ 4  80  (x+252/4 80)4  x+252320  x320-252  x68 he must get a 68 or higher  ex: o a rental company charges $15 to rent a chain saw, plus $2 per hour. Ken Pott can spend no more than 2 $35 to clear some logs from his yard. For how long can he rent the saw to stay within budget?  Let H = the number of hours for a chainsaw  15+2h 35  2h35-15 =20  h20/2 =10  the max amount of hours he can have the chainsaw is 10 hours  solve 43x-5<6 o 4=53x<5+5 o 93x<11 o divide it all my 3 o 3x<11/3  3
