7 1 radical expressions and functions
7.1 Radical Expressions and Functions
  • Square Root
    • If a>= 0, then b >= 0, such that b2 = a, is the principal square root of a
    • √ a = b
  • E.g.,
    • √25 = 5
    • √100 = 10

negative square root
Negative Square Root
  • 25 = 5 ---- principal square root
  • - 25 = -5 ---- negative square root
  • Given: a
    • What is the square root of a?
  • Given: 25
    • What is the square root of 25?
    • sqrt = 5, sqrt = -5, because 52 = 25, (-5)2 = 25
evaluating a square root function
Evaluating a Square Root Function
  • Given: f(x) = 12x – 20
  • Find: f(3)
  • Solution:
    • f(3) = 12(3) – 20 = 36 – 20 = 16 = 4

  • Solution:
    • 3x + 12 ≥ 03x ≥ -12X ≥ -4[-4, ∞)
application
Application
  • By 2005, an “hour-long” show on prime time TV was 45.4 min on the average, and the rest was commercials, plugs, etc. But this amount of “clutter“ was leveling off in recent years. The amount of non-program “clutter”, in minutes, was given by:M(x) = 0.7 x + 12.5where x is the number of years after 1996.
  • What was the number of minutes of “clutter” in an hour program in 2002?
solution
Solution
  • Solution:
    • M(x) = 0.7 x + 12.5
    • x = 2002 – 1996 = 6M(6) = 0.7 6 + 12.5 ~ 0.7(2.45) + 12.5 ~ 14.2 (min)
  • In 2009?
    • x = 2009 – 1996 = 13
    • M(13) = 0.7 13 + 12.5 ~ 15 (min)

  • -64x3 = (-4x)3 = -4x
  • 81 = (3)4 = 3
  • -81 = x has no solution in R,
    • since there is no x such that x4 = -81
  • In general
    • -a has an nth root when n is odd
    • -a has no nth root when n is even

7.3 Multiplying & SimplifyingRadical Expressions
  • Product Rule
    • a · b = ab or
    • a1/n· b1/n = (ab)1/n
    • Note: Factors have same order of root.
  • E.g,
    • 25 4 = 25 · 4 = 100 = 10
    • 2000 = 400 · 5 = 400 · 5 = 20 5
