Q

factor x^3+8

A

(x+2)(x^2-2x+4)

1
Q

how do you factor a perfect cube

A

in the first (), take the cubed root of both variables in the equation
in the second (), first, put in whatever you need to get the leading coefficient, then put in the opposite of the product of the first (), then whatever you need to get the constant

2
Q

is (x-1)(x^2+x+1) a product of linear factors

A

no, simplify the last trinomial by doing quadratic formula to get a product of linear factors

3
Q

is x^2 + 49 factorable?

yes

x-7i) (x+7i

4
Q

what is the rational zero test

some factors of both of these things will present a zero of the equation

5
Q

what are the possible root combinations for a cubed equation

A

all real, 2 imaginary and one real

6
Q

what does lower bound say

A

you plug in a negative number and get alternating sums in return,
this will be your lowest zero

7
Q

what is upper bound

A

you plug in a higher number and get all positive sums in return
this will be your highest zero

8
Q

what is DesCartes’s Rule of signs

A

the number of positive real zeros=the number of sign variations or less than that by an even integer
the number of negative real zeros=the number of sign variations at
f(-x) or less than that by an even integer

9
Q

what does irreducible over the reals mean

A

does not reduce into real factors

x^2-2x+10

10

write x^6-x^7 as a product of linear factors

A

(x)(x)(x)(x)(x)(x)(1-x)

A

relation

21
Q

what is a rational function

A

fraction with polynomials

22
Q

how do you find the vertical asymptote

A

whatever makes the denominator 0
roots of denominator
x=
be sure to factor function first as asymptotes might cancel

23
Q

how do you find the horizontal asymptote if numerator’s degree is < denominator’s degree

A

y=0

it is the x-axis

24
Q

how do you find HA if the numerator’s degree=denominator’s degree

A

f(x)=2x-5/4-x HA:y=-2

how do you find the HA if you numerator’s degree > denominator’s degree by 1?
by 2?

A

by 1: y=quotient slant asymptote

by 2: y=quotient parabolic asymptote

Q

how do you find x intercepts and y intercepts of a rational function

A

x: roots of numerator (set=0) make sure to factor first in case things cancel
y: plug 0 in for x
NOTE- be sure to write as ordered pairs, (0,0) is not a y or x intercept
