Algebra Review for PreCalculus

 Topic Review on "Title": Algebra: Mathematics branch of mathematics that uses basic operations to solve expressions Linear equations: A linear equation is an equation involving only the sum or product of constants and the first power of a variable. y=f(x)=mx+b where m is the slope and b is the y intercept is the general form of an equation in slope intercept form. The formula of a slope= where and are two points in ordered pair form. The general form of point slope form is: where m is the slope, and is the two points in ordered pair form.   Polynomial equations: The quadratic formula equals: where a, b and c are constants of a quadratic equation is of the form . Factoring: Factoring is a process of dividing out a factor from a mathematical expression. Common factors technique is of the form ax+bx=x(a+b). Difference of squares: . Difference of cubes: . Rationalizing is the process of removing an irrational expression from the numerator of a fraction. Order and Inequalities: Number line: An axis or ray usually horizontal on which real numbers are represented and ordered from left to right. Absolute value: For a real number a, it is a if a is greater than or equal to zero or –a if a is less than zero. It is denoted . Conic sections: The general equation of a circle: . Where r is the radius of the circle and is the center of the circle. The general equation of an ellipse: . Natural logarithm: A log taken to base “e”, is approximately 2.7. Natural Log Function: . Exponential function: .
