For example, a year-old with a maximum heart rate of beats per minute should strive for a target heart rate zone of between 98 and beats per minute. An introduction to modeling is presented here in Chapter R along with the standard order of operations used to carry out these calculations. Chapter R reviews skills and concepts required for success in college algebra. Just as an athlete must first learn the basics of a sport and build endurance and speed, a student studying mathematics must focus on necessary basic skills to prepare for the challenge ahead.

Preparation for algebra is comparable to an athlete preparing for a sporting event. Putting the time and effort into the basics here in Chapter R will be your foundation for success in later chapters. Identify Subsets of the Set of Real Numbers 1. Identify Subsets of the Set of A hybrid vehicle gets 48 mpg in city driving and 52 mpg on the highway. The formula A 5 c 1 h gives the amount of gas A in gal for c miles of city driving and h miles of highway driving. In the formula, A, c, and h are called variables and these represent values that are subject to change. The values and are called constants because their values do not change in the formula. For a trip from Houston, Texas, to Dallas, Texas, a motorist travels 36 mi of city driving and 91 mi of highway driving.

The amount of fuel used by this hybrid vehicle is given by 1 1 A5 1 48 52 5 2. Real Numbers Use Inequality Symbols and Interval Notation Find the Union and Intersection of Sets Evaluate Absolute Value Expressions Use Absolute Value to Represent Distance Apply the Order of Operations Simplify Algebraic Expressions Write Algebraic Models The numbers used in day-to-day life such as those used to determine fuel consumption come from the set of real numbers, denoted by R. A set is a collection of items called elements. The braces { and } are used to enclose the elements of a set. For example, {gold, silver, bronze} represents the set of medals awarded to the top three finishers in an Olympic event. A set that contains no elements is called the empty set or null set and is denoted by { } or [. Listing the elements in a set within braces is called the roster method. Using the roster method, the set of the even numbers between 0 and 10 is represented by {2, 4, 6, 8}. Another method to define this set is by using set-builder notation.

This uses a description of the elements of the set. For example, 5x Z x is an even number between 0 and The set of all x such that x is an even number between 0 and 10 In our study of college algebra, we will often refer to several important subsets parts of the set of real numbers Table R Table R-1 Subsets of the Set of Real Numbers, R Set TIP Notice that the first five letters of the word rational spell ratio. This will help you remember that a rational number is a ratio of integers. Examples: ratio of 26 and 11 and 9 ratio of 9 and 1. Examples: 0. Irrational numbers are real numbers that cannot be expressed as a ratio of integers.

The decimal form of an irrational number is nonterminating and nonrepeating. Examples: π and 12 Section R. It is important to realize that for nonterminating decimals, a calculator or spreadsheet will only give approximate values, not exact values. Real Numbers R Rational Numbers Integers Whole Numbers Irrational Numbers Natural Numbers Figure R-1 The relationships among the subsets of real numbers defined in Table R-1 are shown in Figure R In particular, notice that together the elements of the set of rational numbers and the set of irrational numbers make up the set of real numbers. EXAMPLE 1 Identifying Elements of a Set Given A 5 E 13, 0.

Solution: a. B 5 E, , 4. Use Inequality Symbols and Interval Notation All real numbers can be located on the real number line. We say that a is less than b written symbolically as a , b if a lies to the left of b on the number line. This is equivalent to saying that b is greater than a written symbolically as b. a because b lies to the right of a. a b a , b is equivalent to b. a Answers 1.

gov Chapter 2 Functions and Relations SECTION 2. Therefore, it is important to learn how to create and interpret meaningful graphs. Understanding how points are located relative to a fixed origin is important for many graphing applications. For example, computer game developers use a rectangular coordinate system to define the locations of objects moving around the screen. Plot Points on a Rectangular Coordinate System 2. Use the Distance and Midpoint Formulas 3. Graph Equations by Plotting Points 4. Identify x- and y-Intercepts 5. Graph Equations Using a 1. He did this by intersecting two perpendicular number lines with the point of intersection called the origin. These lines form a rectangular coordinate system also known in his honor as the Cartesian coordinate system or simply a coordinate plane. The horizontal line is called the x-axis and the vertical line is called the y-axis.

The x- and y-axes divide the plane into four quadrants. The quadrants are labeled counterclockwise as I, II, III, and IV Figure Every point in the plane can be uniquely identified by using an ordered pair x, y to specify its coordinates with respect to the origin. In an ordered pair, the first coordinate is called the x-coordinate, and the second is called the y-coordinate. The origin is identified as 0, 0. In Figure , six points have been graphed. The point 23, 5 , for example, is placed 3 units in the negative x direction to the left and 5 units in the positive y direction upward. Use the Distance and Midpoint Formulas 4, 9 8 3 4 Quadrant IV Figure 10 9 23, 5 x, y 5 2.

Now we want to find the distance between two points in a coordinate plane. For example, consider the points 1, 5 and 4, 9. The distance d between the points is labeled in Figure The dashed horizontal and vertical line segments form a right triangle with hypotenuse d. The horizontal distance between the points is 4 2 [email protected] 5 3. The vertical distance between the points is 9 2 5 5 4. Section 2. The distance between the points is 5 units. We can make this process generic by labeling the points P x1, y1 and Q x2, y2. See Figure Applying the Pythagorean theorem, we have d 2 5 x2 2 x1 2 1 y2 2 y1 2 d 5 2 x2 2 x1 1 y2 2 y1 2 TIP Since x2 2 x1 2 5 x1 2 x2 2 and y2 2 y1 2 5 y1 2 y2 2, the distance formula can also be expressed as 2 We can drop the absolute value bars because 0 a 0 2 5 a 2 for all real numbers a.

Distance Formula The distance between points x1, y1 and x2, y2 is given by d 5 2 x2 2 x1 2 1 y2 2 y1 2 d 5 2 x1 2 x2 2 1 y1 2 y2 2. EXAMPLE 1 Finding the Distance Between Two Points Find the distance between the points 25, 1 and 7, Give the exact distance and an approximation to 2 decimal places. Solution: 25, 1 and 7, 23 x1, y1 and x2, y2 Label the points. Note that the choice for x1, y1 and x2, y2 will not affect the outcome. d 5 2[7 2 25 ]2 1 23 2 1 2 Apply the distance formula. The exact distance is 4 units. This is approximately However, in the case of the Pythagorean theorem, the converse is a true statement. Answer 1. The Pythagorean theorem tells us that if a right triangle has legs of lengths a and b and hypotenuse of length c, then a2 1 b2 5 c2. The following related statement is also true: If a2 1 b2 5 c2, then a triangle with sides of lengths a, b, and c is a right triangle. We use this important concept in Example 2. Solution: TIP We denote the distance between points P and Q as d P, Q or PQ.

The second notation is the length of the line segment with endpoints P and Q. y Determine the distance between each pair of points. Label the shorter sides as a and b. Check the condition that a2 1 b2 5 c2. y x2, y2 x1 1 x2 , y1 1 y2 2 2 x1, y1 Now suppose that we want to find the midpoint of the line segment between the distinct points x1, y1 and x2, y2. The midpoint of a line segment is the point equidistant the same distance from the endpoints Figure The x-coordinate of the midpoint is the average of the x-coordinates from the endpoints. Likewise, the y-coordinate of the midpoint is the average of the y-coordinates from the endpoints.

x Figure Midpoint Formula The midpoint of the line segment with endpoints x1, y1 and x2, y2 is M5a x1 1 x2 y1 1 y2 , b 2 2 average of x-coordinates EXAMPLE 3 Avoiding Mistakes average of y-coordinates The midpoint of a line segment is an ordered pair with two coordinates , not a single number. Finding the Midpoint of a Line Segment Find the midpoint of the line segment with endpoints 4. y Solution: Answer 2. Apply the midpoint formula. Graph Equations by Plotting Points The relationship between two variables can often be expressed as a graph or expressed algebraically as an equation. For example, suppose that two variables, x and y, are related such that y is 2 more than x. An equation to represent this relationship is y 5 x 1 2. A solution to an equation in the variables x and y is an ordered pair x, y that when substituted into the equation makes the equation a true statement.

For example, the following ordered pairs are solutions to the equation y 5 x 1 2. The graph of all solutions to an equation is called the graph of the equation. The graph of y 5 x 1 2 is shown in Figure One of the goals of this text is to identify families of equations and the characteristics of their graphs. As we proceed through the text, we will develop tools to graph equations efficiently. For now, we present the point-plotting method to graph the solution set of an equation. In Example 4, we start by selecting several values of x and using the equation to calculate the corresponding values of y. Then we plot the points to form a general outline of the curve. EXAMPLE 4 Graphing an Equation by Plotting Points Graph the equation by plotting points. Then use the equation to calculate the corresponding y values. Therefore, the values of x must be chosen so that when substituted into the equation, they produce a real number for y. Sometimes the values of x must be restricted to produce real numbers for y.

This is demonstrated in Example 5. EXAMPLE 5 Graphing an Equation by Plotting Points Graph the equation by plotting points. Apply the square root property. y TIP x In Example 5, we choose several convenient values of x such as 21, 0, 3, and 8 so that the radicand will be a perfect square. Identify x- and y-Intercepts y When analyzing graphs, we want to examine their most important features. Two key features are the x- and y-intercepts of a graph. These are the points where a graph intersects the x- and y-axes. Any point on the x-axis has a y-coordinate of zero. Therefore, an x-intercept is a point a, 0 where a graph intersects the x-axis Figure Any point on the y-axis has an x-coordinate of zero.

Therefore, a y-intercept is a point 0, b where a graph intersects the y-axis Figure For example, if an x-intercept is 24, 0 , then the x-intercept may be stated simply as 24 the y-coordinate is understood to be zero. Similarly, we may refer to a y-intercept as the y-coordinate of a point of intersection that a graph makes with the y-axis. For example, if a y-intercept is 0, 2 , then it may be stated simply as 2. Answer y 5. x1 y2 52 To find the x- and y-intercepts from an equation in x and y, follow these steps. Find the x-intercept s. Find the y-intercept s. y 0 0x0 x 5 5 5 5 0x0 2 1 0x0 2 1 1 1 or x 5 21 To find the x-intercept s , substitute 0 for y and solve for x. Isolate the absolute value. Recall that for k.

The x-intercepts are 1, 0 and 21, 0. The y-intercept is 0, The intercepts 1, 0 , 21, 0 , and 0, 21 are consistent with the graph of the equation y 5 0 x 0 2 1 found in Example 4 Figure Skill Practice 6 Given the equation y 5 x2 2 4, a. TIP Sometimes when solving for an x- or y-intercept, we encounter an equation with an imaginary solution. In such a case, the graph has no x- or y-intercept. Graph Equations Using a Graphing Utility Answers 6. We will quickly enhance this method with other techniques that are less cumbersome and use more analysis and strategy. One weakness of the point-plotting method is that it may be slow to execute by pencil and paper. Also, the selected points must fairly represent the shape of the graph. Otherwise the sketch will be inaccurate. Graphing utilities can help with both of these weaknesses. They can graph many points quickly, and the more points that are plotted, the greater the likelihood that we see the key features of the graph.

Graphing utilities include graphing calculators, spreadsheets, specialty graphing programs, and apps on phones. Figures and show a table and a graph for y 5 x2 2 3. Notice that the calculator expects the equation represented with the y variable isolated. To set up a table, enter the starting value for x, in this case, Then set the increment by which to increase x, in this case 1. Figure The table shows eleven x-y pairs but more can be accessed by using the up and down arrow keys on the keypad. In this context, it represents the change from one value of x to the next. The graph in Figure is shown between x and y values from to The tick marks on the axes are 1 unit apart. The viewing window with these parameters is denoted [, 10, 1] by [, 10, 1].

minimum x value TIP The calculator plots a large number of points and then connects the points. So instead of graphing a single smooth curve, it graphs a series of short line segments. This may give the graph a jagged look Figure maximum x value minimum y value maximum y value 10 [, 10, 1] by [, 10, 1]. Solution: Enter the equations using the Y5 editor. Use the WINDOW editor to change the viewing window parameters. The variables Xmin, Xmax, and Xscl relate to [, 20, 2]. The variables Ymin, Ymax, and Yscl relate to [, 15, 3]. Notice that the graphs of both equations appear. This provides us with a tool for visually examining two different models at the same time.

The coordinates of the ordered pair give the number of pixels horizontally and vertically from the origin. Use this scenario for Exercises 65— Suppose that player A is located at 36, and player B is located at , How far apart are the players? Round to the nearest pixel. If the two players move directly toward each other at the same speed, where will they meet? If player A moves three times faster than player B, where will they meet?

Write an Equation of a Circle in Standard Form 1. Write an Equation of a Circle In addition to graphing equations by plotting points, we will learn to recognize specific categories of equations and the characteristics of their graphs. We begin by presenting the definition of a circle. in Standard Form 2. Write the General Form of an Equation of a Circle Definition of a Circle A circle is the set of all points in a plane that are equidistant from a fixed point called the center. The fixed distance from any point on the circle to the center is called the radius. y r x, y h, k x Figure The radius of a circle is often denoted by r, where r.

It is also important to note that the center is not actually part of the graph of a circle. It will be drawn in the text as an open dot for reference only. Suppose that a circle is centered at the point h, k and has radius r Figure The distance formula can be used to derive an equation of the circle. Let x, y be an arbitrary point on the circle. Then by definition the distance between h, k and x, y must be r. Apply the distance formula. EXAMPLE 1 Writing an Equation of a Circle in Standard Form a. Write the standard form of an equation of the circle with center 24, 6 and radius 2. Graph the circle. Point of Interest Solution: Among his many contributions to mathematics, René Descartes discovered analytic geometry, which uses algebraic equations to describe geometric shapes.

For example, a circle can be described by the algebraic equation x 2 h 2 1 y 2 k 2 5 r 2. Standard form: x 2 h 2 1 y 2 k 2 5 r2 Simplify. To graph the circle, first locate the center and draw a small open dot. Then plot points r units to the left, right, above, and below the center. Draw the circle through the points. Write an equation of the circle with center 3, 21 and radius 4. EXAMPLE 2 Write the standard form of an equation of the circle with endpoints of a diameter 21, 0 and 3, 4. Answers 1. Solution: 4 3 2 1 22 21 21 22 23 24 25 26 Writing an Equation of a Circle in Standard Form A sketch of this scenario is given in Figure Notice that the midpoint of the diameter is the center of the circle.

Using the endpoint 21, 0 as x1, y1 and the center 1, 2 as x2, y2 , apply the distance formula. Write the General Form of an Equation of a Circle In Example 2 we have the equation x 2 1 2 1 y 2 2 2 5 8. If we expand the binomials and combine like terms, we can write the equation in general form. x 2 1 2 1 y 2 2 2 5 8 x2 2 2x 1 1 1 y2 2 4y 1 4 5 8 x2 1 y2 2 2x 2 4y 2 3 5 0 Standard form center-radius form Expand the binomials General form General Form of an Equation of a Circle An equation of a circle written in the form x2 1 y2 1 Ax 1 By 1 C 5 0 is called the general form of an equation of a circle. By completing the square we can write an equation of a circle given in general form as an equation in standard form.

The purpose of writing an equation of a circle in standard form is to identify the radius and center. This is demonstrated in Example 3. EXAMPLE 3 Writing an Equation of a Circle in Standard Form Write the equation of the circle in standard form. Then identify the center and radius. Group the y terms. Move the constant term to the right. Complete the squares. The center is 25, 3 , and the radius is 19 5 3. Skill Practice 3 Write the equation of the circle in standard form. x2 1 y2 2 8x 1 2y 2 8 5 0 Not all equations of the form x2 1 y2 1 Ax 1 By 1 C 5 0 represent the graph of a circle. Completing the square results in an equation of the form x 2 h 2 1 y 2 k 2 5 c, where c is a constant. In the case where c.

However, if c 5 0, or if c , 0, the graph will be a single point or nonexistent. These are called degenerate cases. The solution set is { h, k }. EXAMPLE 4 Determining if an Equation Represents the Graph of a Circle Write the equation in the form x 2 h 2 1 y 2 k 2 5 r2, and identify the solution set. Note that the x2 term is already a perfect square: x 2 0 2. Complete the square: C 12 D 2 5 Since r2 5 0, the solution set is { 0, 7 }. The sum of two squares will equal zero only if each individual term is zero. Therefore, x 5 0 and y 5 7. Skill Practice 4 Write the equation in the form x 2 h 2 1 y 2 k 2 5 r2, and identify the solution set.

Therefore, to graph an equation of a circle such as x 1 5 2 1 y 2 3 2 5 9, from Example 3, we first solve for y. This is because the calculator has a rectangular screen. If the scaling is the same on the x- and y-axes, the graph will appear elongated horizontally. To eliminate this distortion, use a ZSquare option, located in the Zoom menu. Answer 4. The viewing window between x 5 These may not include x values at the leftmost and rightmost points on the circle. That is, the calculator may graph points close to 28, 3 and 22, 3 but not exactly at 28, 3 and 22, 3. Then factor the trinomial. Find the distance between 2, 3 and 23, Multiply by using the special case products. Express your answer in simplified radical form. x 2 2 2 Concept Connections 1. A is the set of all points in a plane equidistant from a fixed point called the 2.

The distance from the center of a circle to any point on the circle is called the. and is often denoted by r. Glad it was a rental not a purchase. See all reviews. Report an issue.

Prior to her work at DSC, she worked as a software engineer for General Electric in the area of flight and radar simulation.

Julie earned a bachelor of science in applied mathematics from Union College in Schenectady, New York, and a master of science in mathematics from the University of Florida. In addition to this textbook, she has authored textbooks in developmental mathematics, trigonometry, and precalculus, as well as several short works of fiction and nonfiction for young readers. I remember doing simple calculations with him and using graph paper to plot data points for his experiments. He would then tell me what the peaks and features in the graph meant in the context of his experiment. Throughout her career she has been actively involved with many projects at Miami Dade including those on computer learning, curriculum design, and the use of technology in the classroom. Letter from the Authors For many students, college algebra serves as a gateway course to the higher levels of mathematics needed for a variety of careers.

Our goal is to offer every student an opportunity for success in college algebra by bringing together a seamless integration of print and digital content delivery. The clear, concise writing style and pedagogical features of our textbook continue throughout the online content in ConnectMath, in our instructional videos, and in the adaptive reading and learning experience of SmartBook. Julie Miller donna gerken Dedications [email protected] [email protected] o my parents Kent and Joanne Miller who have always taught me the value of education. Through her friendly and engaging writing style, students are able to understand the material easily.

These exercises are linked to examples in the text and direct students to similar problems whose solutions have been stepped-out in detail. They can be easily skipped for those who do not encourage the use of calculators. Problem Recognition Exercises Problem Recognition Exercises appear in strategic locations in each chapter of the text. These exercises provide students with an opportunity to synthesize multiple concepts and decide which problem-solving technique to apply to a given problem. These exercises are highlighted with blue circles in the exercise sets and mirror the related examples.

With increased demands on faculty time, this has been a popular feature that helps faculty write their lectures and develop their presentation of material. If an instructor presents all of the highlighted exercises, then each objective of that section of text will be covered. Modeling and Applications One of the most important tools to motivate our students is to make the mathematics they learn meaningful in their lives. The textbook is filled with robust applications and numerous opportunities for mathematical modeling for those instructors looking to incorporate these features into their course. Callouts Throughout the text, popular tools are included to highlight important ideas. Avoiding Mistakes boxes that fend off common mistakes.

Point of Interest boxes that offer interesting and historical mathematical facts. Instructor Notes to assist with lecture preparation. vii Graphing Calculator Coverage Material is presented throughout the book illustrating how a graphing utility can be used to view a concept in a graphical manner. The goal of the calculator material is not to replace algebraic analysis, but rather, to enhance understanding with a visual approach. Graphing calculator examples are placed in self-contained boxes and may be skipped by instructors who choose not to implement the calculator. Similarly, the graphing calculator exercises are found at the end of the exercise sets and may also be easily skipped. A detailed summary is located at www. Chapter review exercises. Chapter test.
