Problems pp92 7 93 General Steps for Solving Applications 1 and reread the problem carefully and slowly until you understand and 2 to represent the unknown value Use diagrams or tables to organize the information Express other unknowns in terms of the variable using the variable expressions 4 the equation 5 to the problem Does it seem reasonable in the words of the original problem 7 Write the answer to the question in a complete sentence being careful to use the correct units required II Geometry Problems p 93 Example 1 page 93 Use two figures to represent the old square and the new square Label each completely Recall that the perimeter of a square is the sum of all 4 sides or 43 Read the problem and look for key math words that can be used later to make an equation Find the verb of the key math sentence FIRST That will anchor the entire equation Put the left phrase of the sentence on the left side of the equals sign and the right phrase of the sentence on the right side of the equals sign Don t scramble the order of the words of the problem Example Problem 13 page 101 Remember that operation phrases like less than and fewer than and even more than must be translated in reverse order of the English statement Ex 5 less than a number x 7 5 Recall that perimeter is the sum of all the sides III Motion Problems pp 94 7 95 Example Problem 21 page 103 Use a chart to organize the information Units of time must be consistent from one entry to the other and also be consistent with the context of the problem Miles per hour dictates what the units of time in problem

Summary of Properties 1 The function given by fx anx n an1xquot 1 xn2xquot 2 a2x2 a1x an is called a polynomial function ofx with degree n where n is a nonnegative integer and an an1 an2 a2 a1 an are real numbers with an 0 2 The graphs of polynomial functions are continuous and have no sharp corners The sign of the leading coef cient an determines the end behavior of the function The degree n determines the number of complex zeros ofthe function The number of real zeros ofthe function will be less than or equal tothe number of complex zeros 3 The real zeros of a polynomial function may be found by factoring where possible or by nding where the graph touches the xaxis The number of times a zero occurs is called its multiplicity If a function has a zero of odd multiplicity the graph ofthe function crosses the xaxis at that xvalue However if a function has a zero of even multiplicity the graph of the function only touches the xaxis at that xvalue 4 The graphing calculator has a builtin function for nding a zero or root of a function As an alternative method you can graph y 0 the xaxis as a second function and use the intersection function to nd the zero While this latter method is somewhat easier to use on some calculators it may not work for finding zeros of even multiplicity Finding the Zeros of Polynomial Functions Find the real zeros and state the multiplicity of each for the following polynomial functions Algebraic solution Graphical solution 1 fx4x2 3x 7 4x2 3x 70 4x 7x10 4 x 70 or x10 X1 or x 1 E0 4 x17s 0 Each zero has multiplicity one Repeat to nd other

Inverse Functions and One 7 to 7 One Functions pp390 7 Inverses of arithmetic are addition and subtraction multiplication and division etc A function takes a value of the domain x and operates on it

domain EX fx5x and gx For f6 5 6 30 and g30 6 These two functions are inverses of each other How to determine whether a function is onetoone p 391 1 Work several examples and see if one y value is

Write a general formula using k value and the variables of the problem 3 Substitute the values from the incomplete statement and answer the question I Direct Variation pp 369 7 370 Direct Variation can be stated as y varies as x or y is directly proportional to x This means that there is a nonzero real number k such that y k x The constant of proportionality is EX The total cost of making copies varies directly as the number of copies made If the cost of making 520 copies is 2080 what is the cost of 178 copies The first sentence sets up the type of variation of the problem C k w where C is

fraction being overreduced We have to multiply by a form of l to bring the number out from under the radical sign Rationalizing the denominator when the denominator is a monomial 2x 7 5 EX czle 9abc 7

Discriminant Restrictions and Domain The de nition of a quadratic equation is an equation that can be written as where a b and c are and A quadratic equation that is written in the form ax2 bx c 0 is

be set to 0 This method should be used when the equation can be easily factored EX 2x2 x 3 All quadratics must 0 before factoring Now split into 2 independent parts and solve separately 11 Solving a Quadratic Equation using the Square Root Property p 117 This property allows us to use a to undo a single square term or a parentheses that has been squared We always get 2 answers the and the of the radical This method should be used only when the quadratic has a single square term EX a2 20 Note that the number is positive Val iVZO This number under the radical 20 has a perfect square factor that can be used to help simplify this radical a i 405 i2xg EX b2 49 This cannot be done in the real number system since there are no twin factors that can multiply and give us a negative anything even a
