•Algebra Aerobics, p. 18 : 1a. Describe:
Here we take an x, square it and multiply by 3,
then subtract that x from the result and add 1.
b.
On checking the ordered pairs, we discover that only (0,1) satisfies this equation.

Here we need to be sure we take the square of x correctly (2 squared is 4, not 4) and
be sure to subtract x correctly when it is negative.
•Algebra Aerobics, p. 18:2a. Describe.
Here take an x, subtract 1 from it and square the
entire result.
Note, (x1)^2 is NOT x^21^2.
Also note that for this problem (and 1a) we
are evaluating the expression for various x's.
We are not looking to solve for when this
expression is equal to zero.
b. On checking ordered pairs, we discover that (0,1) and (1,0) satisfy this equation.
