Pre-Calculus Exam 3 (Section 7.1-7.2, 3.1 – 3.5) Review Section 7.1 * solve a systemby substitution method * solve a system by addition method Consistent system(has at least one solution) Inconsistent system (A false statement occurs. There is no solution.) Dependent system (has infinitely many solutions) * number of solutions to a systemof two linear equations Exactly one ordered pair. (Lines intersect at one point.) -Write solutions as an ordered pair No solution. (When solving for example, you get 0 = 12. This meanslines are parallel.) Infinitely many solutions. (When solving for example, you get 3 = 3. This means lines are identical.) - Write solutions in set builder notation } ) , {( b mx y y x + = * application problems (upriver/downriver, mixtures – solutions and cost per unit, using cost function and revenue function to find break-even point, etc.) Section 7.2 * Solve system of linear equations in three variables. Pair the equations are reduceit down to systemof two variables. Solve for those two variables and substitute into the original equations to find the remaining variable. *Application problems (i=prt (money), etc.) Section 3.1 * the exponential function 1 , 0 , ) ( = b b b x f x * evaluate exponentials using your calculator * graphing exponential functions and do transformations using a parent graph. An exponential function will have a horizontal asymptote . * application problems with compound interest and continuous compound interest. (Interest formulas do not need to be memorized…they will be given to you.) Section 3.2 * the logarithmic function 0 , 1 , 0 ), ( log ) ( = x b b x x f b * evaluate logarithms without a calculator by writing a logarithmic equation as an equivalent exponential equation. ( y x b = ) ( log and x b y = are equivalent equations) * remembera common logarithm is a log whose base is understood to be 10.

What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
