Simplifying Radicals

4
Solving Radicals Step 1: Get rid of anything that might not be under the radical. Step 2: Square both sides to get rid of the radical. Step 3: Isolate the variable. Step 4: Solve Step 5: Plug answer back into equation and make sure that it works.

5
What is a Radical Expression? A Radical Expression is an equation that has a variable in a radicand or has a variable with a rational exponent. yes no

6
EXAMPLE – Solving a Radical Equation 2 () 2 Square both sides to get rid of the square root

7
EXAMPLE 2 () 2 NO SOLUTION Since 16 doesn’t plug in as a solution. Let’s Double Check that this works Note: You will get Extraneous Solutions from time to time – always do a quick check

The first three terms of the sequence a n = 2n 2 are a 1 = 2(1) 2 = 2 a 2 = 2(2) 2 = 8 a 3 = 2(3) 2 = 18. finite sequence terms

35
Copyright © by Houghton Mifflin Company, Inc. All rights reserved. 35 The nth Term of a Geometric Sequence The nth term of a geometric sequence has the form a n = a 1 r n - 1 where r is the common ratio of consecutive terms of the sequence. 15, 75, 375, 1875,... a 1 = 15 The nth term is 15(5 n-1 ). a 2 = 15(5) a 3 = 15(5 2 ) a 4 = 15(5 3 )

Introduction Geometric sequences are exponential functions that have a domain of consecutive positive integers. Geometric sequences can be represented by formulas, either explicit or recursive, and those formulas can be used to find a certain term of the sequence or the number of a certain value in the sequence. 42 3.8.2: Geometric Sequences

43
Guided Practice Example 1 Find the constant ratio, write the explicit formula, and find the seventh term for the following geometric sequence. 3, 1.5, 0.75, 0.375, … 43 3.8.2: Geometric Sequences

44
Guided Practice: Example 1, continued 1.Find the constant ratio by dividing two successive terms. 1.5 ÷ 3 = 0.5 44 3.8.2: Geometric Sequences

45
Guided Practice: Example 1, continued 2.Confirm that the ratio is the same between all of the terms. 0.75 ÷ 1.5 = 0.5 and 0.375 ÷ 0.75 = 0.5 45 3.8.2: Geometric Sequences

46
Guided Practice: Example 1, continued 3.Identify the first term (a 1 ). a 1 = 3 46 3.8.2: Geometric Sequences

47
Guided Practice: Example 1, continued 4.Write the explicit formula. a n = a 1 r n – 1 Explicit formula for any given geometric sequence a n = (3)(0.5) n – 1 Substitute values for a 1 and n. 47 3.8.2: Geometric Sequences

48
Guided Practice: Example 1, continued 5.To find the seventh term, substitute 7 for n. a 7 = (3)(0.5) 7 – 1 a 7 = (3)(0.5) 6 Simplify. a 7 = 0.046875Multiply. The seventh term in the sequence is 0.046875. 48 3.8.2: Geometric Sequences ✔

49
Guided Practice Example 3 A geometric sequence is defined recursively by, with a 1 = 729. Find the first five terms of the sequence, write an explicit formula to represent the sequence, and find the eighth term. 49 3.8.2: Geometric Sequences

50
Guided Practice: Example 3, continued 1.Using the recursive formula: 50 3.8.2: Geometric Sequences

51
Guided Practice: Example 3, continued The first five terms of the sequence are 729, –243, 81, –27, and 9. 51 3.8.2: Geometric Sequences

52
Guided Practice: Example 3, continued 2.The first term is a 1 = 729 and the constant ratio is, so the explicit formula is. 52 3.8.2: Geometric Sequences

53
Guided Practice: Example 3, continued 3.Substitute 8 in for n and evaluate. The eighth term in the sequence is. 53 3.8.2: Geometric Sequences ✔
