Check: (2x – 1)(x – 1) = 2x2 – 2x – 1x + 1 = 2x2 – 3x + 1
Rational Expressions ALGEBRA 2 LESSON 9-4 Solutions 1. 2x2 – 3x + 1 = (2x – 1)(x – 1) Check: (2x – 1)(x – 1) = 2x2 – 2x – 1x + 1 = 2x2 – 3x + 1 3. 5x2 + 6x + 1 = (5x + 1)(x + 1) Check: (5x + 1)(x + 1) = 5x2 + 5x + 1x + 1 = 5x2 + 6x + 1 2. 4x2 – 9 = (2x)2 – 32 = (2x + 3)(2x – 3) 4. 10x2 – 10 = 10(x2 – 1) = 10(x2 – 12) = 10(x + 1)(x – 1) 6. • = = = 8. • = = ÷ = • = = = or 1 ÷ = • = = = 1 2 4 6 1 • 4 2 • 6 1 • 2 • 2 2 • 2 • 3 / 3 5 7 2 • 3 5 • 7 35 15 8 5 • 8 4 • 15 5 • 2 • 4 4 • 5 • 3 3 • 2 4 • 1 2 • 2 • 1 5. • = = = 7. • = = = 9. ÷ 4 = • = = ÷ = • = = = 3 8 5 6 3 • 5 8 • 6 8 • 3 • 2 16 / 2 8 • 2 3 • 16 1 • 16 1 4 5 • 1 8 • 4 32 9 9 • 4 16 • 3 3 • 3 • 4 4 • 4 • 3 9-4

Simplify . State any restrictions on the variable.
Rational Expressions ALGEBRA 2 LESSON 9-4 Simplify State any restrictions on the variable. x2 – 6x – 16 x2 + 5x + 6 = Factor the polynomials. Notice x = –3 or –2. / x2 – 6x – 16 x2 + 5x + 6 (x – 8)(x + 2) (x + 3)(x + 2) = Divide out common factors. (x – 8)(x + 2) (x + 3)(x + 2) 1 = x – 8 x + 3 The simplified expression for x = –3 or –2. x + 8 x + 3 / The restrictions on x are needed to prevent the denominator of the original expression from being zero.

Use the formulas for volume and surface area of a sphere.
Rational Expressions ALGEBRA 2 LESSON 9-4 Quick Check Compare the ratio of the volume to surface area of a sphere with radius r with the ratio of volume to surface area of a sphere with radius 2r. Use the formulas for volume and surface area of a sphere. Volume (V) = • r 3 Surface Area (S.A.) = 4 r 2 4 3 Sphere with radius r Sphere with radius 2r = = Write a ratio. V S.A. 4 3 r 3 4 r 2 4 3 (r ) 3 4 (r )2 =      = Substitute for r. (2r ) 3 4 (2r )2 = = Simplify. r 3 2r The ratio of volume to surface area is twice as great for a sphere whose radius is 2r than a sphere with a radius of r. 9-4

Multiply and . State any restrictions on the variable.
Rational Expressions ALGEBRA 2 LESSON 9-4 Multiply and State any restrictions on the variable. 3x2 + 5x – 2 x – 5 x2 – 25 3x2 – 7x + 2 • = • Factor. 3x2 + 5x – 2 x – 5 x2 – 25 3x2 – 7x + 2 (3x – 1)(x + 2) (x + 5)(x – 5) (3x – 1)(x – 2) = • Divide out common factors. (3x – 1)(x + 2) x – 5 (x + 5)(x – 5) (3x – 1)(x – 2) 1 = (x + 2)(x + 5) x – 2 = x2 + 7x + 10 x – 2 The product is for x 5, 2, or . x2 + 7x + 10 x – 2 1 3 = / Quick Check 9-4

Divide by . State any restrictions on the variables.
Rational Expressions ALGEBRA 2 LESSON 9-4 Divide by . State any restrictions on the variables. 3 – y (2x – 1)(x + 5) 6(y – 3) (2x – 1)(x – 7) ÷ = • Multiply by the reciprocal. 3 – y (2x – 1)(x + 5) 6(y – 3) (2x – 1)(x – 7) = • Divide out common factors. 3 – y (2x – 1)(x + 5) (2x – 1)(x – 7) 6(y – 3) 1 –1 = • –1 (x + 5) (x – 7) 6 = 7 – x 6(x + 5) = Multiply. 7 – x 6x + 30 The quotient is for x = –5, , or 7, and y = 3. 7 – x 6x + 30 / 1 2 Quick Check 9-4
