Unformatted text preview: • Multiply, divide, add, subtract, and simplify rational expressions. • Simplify complex rational expressions. • Solve rational equations. (Don’t forget to check!) • Solve work problems. (There will be no motion problems.) • Perform long division of polynomials. • Use synthetic division (and know when it can be used). • Solve an equation for a speciﬁed variable. (There will be no variation problems.) Formulas to Memorize ( a + b ) 2 = a 2 + 2 ab + b 2 ( a-b ) 2 = a 2-2 ab + b 2 a 2-b 2 = ( a-b )( a + b ) a 3-b 3 = ( a-b )( a 2 + ab + b 2 ) a 3 + b 3 = ( a + b )( a 2-ab + b 2 )...
