Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points Rationalize the numerator of x + 4 x 3 x . 1. x x + 4 + x 3 2. 7 x ( x + 4 + x 3) correct 3. 7 x ( x + 4 x 3) 4. 7 x x + 4 x 3 5. 1 x ( x + 4 + x 3) Explanation: By the difference of squares, ( x + 4 x 3)( x + 4 + x 3) = ( x + 4) 2 ( x 3) 2 = 7 . Thus, after multiplying both the numerator and the denominator in the given expression by x + 4 + x 3 , we obtain 7 x ( x + 4 + x 3) . 002 10.0 points Which, if any, of the following statements are true when a, b are real numbers? A. For all positive a and b , a + b = radicalBig a + 2 ab + b . B. For all positive a and b , a b a + b = a b. C. For all a and b , radicalBig ( a + b ) 2 =  a + b  . 1. all of them correct 2. B and C only 3. C only 4. A and C only 5. A and B only 6. A only 7. B only 8. none of them Explanation: A. TRUE: by the known product, ( x + y ) 2 = x 2 + 2 xy + y 2 . On the other hand, radicalBig ( x + y ) 2 =  x + y  , so if x + y > 0, x + y = radicalbig x 2 + 2 xy + y 2 . But if a, b are positive we can set x = a and y = b . The result follows since x and y are then positive. B. TRUE: by the known difference of squares factorizaation, x 2 y 2 = ( x y )( x + y ) . But if a, b are positive we can set x = a and y = b . The result follows after division. jiwani (amj566) Homework01 Fouli (58395) 2 C. TRUE: we know that radicalBig ( x + y ) 2 =  x + y  , and since radicalbig ( ) is always nonnegative, the right hand side has to be nonnegative. Thats why the absolute value sign is needed. keywords: 003 10.0 points Find the domain of the function f ( x ) = x + 3 x 6 . 1. domain = { x : x > 3 , x negationslash = 6 } 2. domain = { x : x 3 } 3. domain = { x : x 3 } 4. domain = { x : x < 3 , x negationslash = 6 } 5. domain = { x : x 3 , x negationslash = 6 } 6. domain = { x : x 3 , x negationslash = 6 } correct Explanation: The domain of f consists of all x for which x + 3 x 6 is welldefined. This requires that x + 3 be defined and that x 6 negationslash = 0. Now x is defined for all x 0, so x + 3 is defined when x + 3 0, i.e. , when x 3. Consequently, f has domain = { x : x 3 , x negationslash = 6 } . keywords: natural domain, square root func tion, quotient of functions, sign chart 004 10.0 points Simplify the expression f ( x ) = 3 + 6 x 3 4 + 32 parenleftBig x x 2 9 parenrightBig as much as possible....
