Systems of Linear Equations and Their Solutions
We have seen that all equations in the form Ax + By = C are straight lines when graphed. Two
such equations, such as those listed below, are called a system of linear equations. A solution to
a system of lin
Systems of Nonlinear Equations and Their Solutions
A system of two nonlinear equations in two variables contains at least one equation that cannot
be expressed in the form Ax + By = C. Here are two examples:
x2 = 2y + 10
3x y = 9
y = x2 + 3
x2 + y2 = 9

Modeling with Exponential and Logarithmic Functions
Exponential Growth and Decay Models
The mathematical model for exponential growth or decay is given by
f (t) = A0ekt
or
A = A0ekt.
If k > 0, the function models the amount or size of a growing entity. A0
Polynomial Functions and Their Graphs
Definition of a Polynomial Function
Let n be a nonnegative integer and let an, an1, a2, a1, a0, be real numbers with an 0. The
function defined by
f (x) = anxn + an1xn1 + a2x2 + a1x + a0
is called a polynomial func
Properties of Logarithms
The Product Rule
Let b, M, and N be positive real numbers with b 1.
logb (MN) = logb M + logb N
The logarithm of a product is the sum of the logarithms.
For example, we can use the product rule to expand ln (4x):
ln (4x) = ln 4 +

Quadratic Functions
Graphs of Quadratic Functions
The graph of any quadratic function is called a parabola. Parabolas are shaped like cups, as
shown in the graph below. If the coefficient of x2 is positive, the parabola opens upward;
otherwise, the parabo
The Rational Zero Theorem
The Rational Zero Theorem gives a list of possible rational zeros of a polynomial function.
Equivalently, the theorem gives all possible rational roots of a polynomial equation. Not every
number in the list will be a zero of the
