1 CHAPTER 5 5-8 solving radical equations and inequalities

2 OBJECTIVES Solve radical equations and inequalities.

3 RADICAL A radical equation contains a variable within a radical. Recall that you can solve quadratic equations by taking the square root of both sides. Similarly, radical equations can be solved by raising both sides to a power.

4 STEPS TO SOLVE

5 EXAMPLE#1 Solve each equation.

6 EXAMPLE#2 Solve each equation

7 EXAMPLE Solve

8 EXAMPLE Solve

9 SOLVING RADICALS WITH EXTRANEOUS SOLUTIONS Raising each side of an equation to an even power may introduce extraneous solutions.

10 EXAMPLE Solve Method 1 Use a graphing calculator. Let Y1 = and Y2 = 5 – x. The graphs intersect in only one point, so there is exactly one solution. The solution is x = – 1

11 CONTINUE Method 2 Use algebra to solve the equation.

12 EXAMPLE Solve

13 EXAMPLE Solve

14 SOLVING EQUATIONS WITH RATIONAL EXPONENTS Solve (5x + 7) = 3 1 3

15 EXAMPLES Solve 2x = (4x + 8) 1 2

16 EXAMPLE Solve (2x + 15) = x 1 2

17 RADICAL INEQUALITIES A radical inequality is an inequality that contains a variable within a radical. You can solve radical inequalities by graphing or using algebra.

18 EXAMPLE Solve. Method 1 Use a graph and a table. On a graphing calculator, let Y1 = and Y2 = 9. The graph of Y1 is at or below the graph of Y2 for values of x between 3 and 21. Notice that Y1 is undefined when < 3. The solution is 3 ≤ x ≤ 21.

19 CONTINUE Method 2 Use algebra to solve the inequality.

20 EXAMPLE Solve.

21 APPLICATION The speed s in miles per hour that a car is traveling when it goes into a skid can be estimated by using the formula s =, where f is the coefficient of friction and d is the length of the skid marks in feet. A car skids to a stop on a street with a speed limit of 30 mi/h. The skid marks measure 35 ft, and the coefficient of friction was 0.7. Was the car speeding? Explain.

22 STUDENT GUIDED PRACTICE Do even problems 2 -14 in your book page 380

23 HOMEWORK Do even problems from 27-41 in your book page 381
