The Upper and Lower Bound Theorem
Upper Bound
If you divide a polynomial function f(x) by (x - c), where c > 0, using synthetic division and this yields all positive numbers, then c is an upper bound to the real roots of the equation f(x) = 0. Note that t
Rational Zero (or Root) Theorem If , where is a rational zero,
are integer coefficients and the reduced fraction
then p is a factor of the constant term coefficient
and q is a factor of the leading .
We can use this theorem to help us find all of the POSS
Translating an English Phrase Into an Algebraic Expression
Sometimes, you find yourself having to write out your own algebraic expression based on the wording of a problem. In that situation, you want to
1. read the problem carefully, 2. pick out key word
The Standard Form of the Equation of a Circle
(h, k) is the center r is the radius (x, y) is any point on the circle
All points (x, y) on the circle are a fixed distance (radius) away from the center (h, k). The h value of your center is the first value o
Synthetic Division
Synthetic division is another way to divide a polynomial by the binomial x - c , where c is a constant.
Step 1: Set up the synthetic division.
An easy way to do this is to first set it up as if you are doing long division and then set u
Solving Rational Equations
Step 1: Simplify by removing the fractions.

Solving Radical Equations
Step 1: Isolate one of the radicals.

Slope
The slope of a line measures the steepness of the line. Most of you are probably familiar with associating slope with "rise over run". ny units you move up or down from point to point. On the graph that would be a change in the y values. Run means h
Rational Expression A rational expression is one that can be written in the form
where P and Q are polynomials and Q does not equal 0.
An example of a rational expression is:
Domain of a Rational Expression
With rational functions, we need to watch out fo
Rational Inequalities A rational inequality is one that can be written in one of the following standard forms:
or
or
or
Q does not equal 0.
In other words, a rational inequality is in standard form when the inequality is set to 0.
Solving Rational Inequal
Quadratic Inequalities A quadratic inequality is one that can be written in one of the following standard forms:
or or or
In other words, a quadratic inequality is in standard form when the inequality is set to 0. Just like in a quadratic equation, the de
Quadratic in Form An equation is quadratic in form when it can be written in this standard form
where the same expression is inside both ( )'s.
In other words, if you have a times the square of the expression following b plus b times that same expression
Exponential Growth
, (k > 0)
A represents the amount at a given time t. Ao represents the initial amount of the growing entity. Note that this is the amount when t = 0. k is a constant that represents the growth rate. It is POSITIVE when talking in terms
Definition of Exponential Function
The function f defined by
where b > 0, b 1, and the exponent x is any real number, is called an exponential function.
Again, note that the variable x is in the exponent as opposed to the base when we are dealing with an
Solving a Logarithmic Equation of the Form
Step 1: Write as one log isolated on one side.
Get your log on one side everything outside of the log on the other side of your equation using inverse operations. Also use properties of logs to write it so that t
