**1.5 Scientific Notation A number is in scientific notation if :**

It is the product of a number and a 10 raised to a power. The absolute value of the first number is between 1 and 10 Which of the following are in scientific notation? 2.45 x 102 12,345 x 10-5 0.8 x 10-12 -5.2 x 1012

29
**1.5 Scientific Notation Writing a number in scientific notation:**

Move the decimal point to the right of the first non-zero digit. Count the places you moved the decimal point. The number of places that you counted in step 2 is the exponent (without the sign) If your original number (without the sign) was smaller than 1, the exponent is negative. If it was bigger than 1, the exponent is positive

**1.5 Scientific Notation Converting to scientific notation (examples):**

Converting back – just undo the process:

1.6 Roots and Radicals is the positive square root of a, and is the negative square root of a because If a is a positive number that is not a perfect square then the square root of a is irrational. If a is a negative number then square root of a is not a real number. For any real number a:

33
1.6 Roots and Radicals The nth root of a: is the nth root of a. It is a number whose nth power equals a, so: n is the index or order of the radical Example:

34
**1.6 Roots and Radicals The nth root of nth powers:**

If n is even, then If n is odd, then The nth root of a negative number: If n is even, then the nth root is an imaginary number If n is odd, then the nth root is negative

55
1.12 Applied Word Problems Example: Renting a car for one day costs $20 plus $.25 per mile. How much would it cost to rent the car for one day if 68 miles are driven? $20 = fixed cost, $.25 68 = variable cost
