**Solving Radical Equations and Inequalities**

Algebra II January 24 & 25

2
**Evaluate the following expressions.**

Warm - Up Evaluate the following expressions. 1. 2. Solution: 16 Solution: - 8

3
Radicals/Exponents What does it mean when you have a fractions as an exponent? Such as: What this stands for is: the number in the numerator is the power, and the number in the denominator is the radical power. So I could write this in another way like:

4
**Write each statement in a different form than given.**

1. 2. 3.

5
**What about negative exponents**

What about negative exponents? Remember negative exponent means your doing the inverse.

6
**Write each statement in a different form than given.**

1. 2. 3.

7
**Solve the following rational exponential equation:**

Rational Exponents Solve the following rational exponential equation: OPTION #1 Step 1: Convert from exponent to radical form: Step 2: eliminate the radical: Step 3: Simplify:

8
**Solve the following rational exponential equation:**

Rational Exponents Solve the following rational exponential equation: OPTION #2 Step 1: Raise to the reciprocal power of the original power: Step 2: Simplify:

**Solving Radical Equations**

A radical equation is an equation with one or more radicals that have variables in their radicand. Solving Radical Equations Steps Step 1 Isolate the radical on one side of the equation if necessary. Step 2 Raise each side of the equation to the same power to get rid of the radical. Step 3 Solve the equation and check your solution.

10
**Solve a radical Equation**

Write original equation. Cube each side. Simplify. Subtract 7 from each side. x = 10 Divide each side by 2. Solution x = 10 Check.

11
**Try These… 1. SOLUTION: x = 512 2. SOLUTION: x = -9 3.**

12
**Rational Exponent Example**

What is the solution of the equation Write original equation. Divide each side by 3. Raise each side to the power of 3/2. x = 64 Simplify. Solution x = 64 Check.

13
**Solve an equation with a rational Exponent.**

Write original equation. Add 1 to each side. Raise each side to the power of 4/3. Apply exponent properties. x = 14 Solve the equation. Solution x = 14 Check.

14
Try These… 1. 2. 3. SOLUTION: x = 25 SOLUTION: x = 1 SOLUTION: x = 6

15
**Solve an equation w/ an extraneous solution**

Write original equation. Square each side. FOIL the left side and simplify the right. Write in standard form. Factor. x = 7 or x = -2 Solve. x = 7 (The -2 is extraneous) Check.

16
**Solve an equation with 2 radicals**

METHOD 1 Write original equation. Square each side. FOIL the left side and simplify the right. Isolate the radical. Divide both sides by 2 . Square each side again. Simplify. Write in standard form and factor. x = 2 or x = -1 Solve. x = -1 (The 2 is extraneous) Check.

17
**Solve an equation with 2 radicals**

METHOD 2 Write original equation. Graph y1 = Graph y2 = Find the point of intersection! You will find that the ONLY point of intersection is (-1, 2). Therefore, -1 is the only solution of the equation.

18
**Try These… Solve the equation. Check for extraneous solutions.**

1. 2. 3. SOLUTION: x = 1 SOLUTION: x = 0, 4 SOLUTION: x = 3

19
**Solve radical inequalities**

Use a graph to solve SOLUTION Step 1 ENTER the function and y = 3 into the graphing calculator. Step 2 GRAPH the functions from Step 1. Step 3 Identify the x-values for which the graph of lies above the graph of y = 3. SOLUTION: x > 14

20
**Solve the following radical inequalities (try by hand)**

1. 2. SOLUTION: x > 32 SOLUTION: x ≥ 16
