Review for beginning of Math 242 This document covers some topics that you should have learned in Math 241 or whatever your equivalent course was. If x = 3, evaluate x 2 , - x 2 , 2 x 2 , and - 2 x 2 . If x = - 3, evaluate x 2 , - x 2 , 2 x 2 , and - 2 x 2 . Expand and simplify: ( a + b )( x - y + z ) = ( a + b )( a - b ) = ( a + b )( a 2 - ab + b 2 ) = ( a + b )( a - b ) = 2 - 3 2 + 3 · 2 - 3 2 - 3 = ( x 2 + x - x ) · x 2 + x + x x 2 + x + x = Be very aware that a + b is VERY DIFFERENT from a + b ( a + b ) 2 is VERY DIFFERENT from a 2 + b 2 sin( a + b ) is VERY DIFFERENT from sin a + sin b ‘n ( a + b ) is VERY DIFFERENT from ‘na + ‘nb Play around with this to convince yourself! Try some “nice” numbers, like a = 1 and b = 1. (For the sine function, examples of “nice” numbers might be a = π/ 2 and b = π/ 2.) 1
