Circuits. If two resistors are connected in parallel, the combined resistance is given by the formula where R 1 and R 2 are the individual resistances. Simplify the formula. 94. Optics. The focal length of a lens can be calculated by applying the formula , where p is the distance that the object is from the lens and q is the distance that the image is from the lens. Simplify the formula. f = 1 1/ p + 1/ q R = 1 1/ R 1 + 1/ R 2 , 91. Finance. The amount of payment made on a loan is given by the formula , where p is the principal (amount borrowed), and , where r is the interest rate expressed as a decimal and n is the number of payments per year. Suppose n 5. Simplify the formula as much as possible. 92. Finance.

62 CHAPTER 0 Prerequisites and Review 95. Simplify . Solution: Factor the numerator. Cancel the common factor, x 1. Write in simplified form. This is incorrect. What mistake was made? = x + 1 = ( x + 1)( x + 1) ( x + 1) x 2 + 2 x + 1 x + 1 = ( x + 1)( x + 1) ( x + 1) x 2 + 2 x + 1 x + 1 96. Simplify . Solution: Cancel the common 1s. Factor the denominator. Cancel the common x . Write in simplified form. , This is incorrect. What mistake was made? x Z 0 x Z - 2 = 1 x + 2 = x x ( x + 2) = x x ( x + 2) x + 1 x 2 + 2 x + 1 x + 1 x 2 + 2 x + 1 In Exercises 97–100, determine whether each of the statements is true or false.
