Which expression below is incorrectly written in scientific notation?
A. 58x10^{5
}B. 5.333x10^{9}
C. 1.8x10^{6}
D. 4.92x10^{10}
Scientific notation is the product of a number between 1 and 10 multiplied by a power of 10.
(a) should be 5.8x10^{6
5.8 is a number between 1 and 10 and 58 is not
}

Zero Rule
Any number to the zero power equals 1 and not zero. This is so because the base is multiplied the exponent number of times so you are left with is 1
2^{0} = 1

Rule of 1
any base raised to the power of 1 is itself
2^{1} = 2

Negative exponents
look at the inverse operation of multiplication, which is division:
2 ^{4} = =

Product rules for exponents
when multiplying exponents w/ the same base, add the exponents and keep the same base
2^{4} x 2^{3} = 2^{ (4+3)} = 2^{7} = 128

Quotient rules for exponents
when dividing exponents w/ the same base, subtract the exponents and keep the same base
= 2 ^{(43)} = 2 ^{1}

Power rules for exponents
When an exponent is raised to another power,multiply the exponents and keep the same base
(2^{4})^{3} = 2 ^{(4x3)} = 2 ^{12}

multiplicative identity
a number is multiplied by 1 equals itself
365 x 1 = 365

commutative property
addition n multiplication stating the order in which 2 numbers are added or multiplied does not change their sum or product
 a + b = b + a
 44 + 55 = 55 + 44
 a x b = b x a
 25 x 5 = 5 x 25

associate property
addition n multiplication stating the grp of 3 numbers does not change their sum or product
 (a + b) + c = a + (b+c)
 (a x b) x c = a x (b x c)

distributive property
addition n multiplication stating that when multiplying a number by a sum or difference, you may either add/subtract first and then multiply, or multiply first then add/subtract
 a x (b+c) =a(b) + a(c)
 a x (bc) =a(b)  a(c)

diving fractions w/ mixed numbers
 1) write in fraction form
 2) multiply first term by the reciprocal of the second term
 3) write in simplest form
divide = x = =

Flipping the inequality sign
occurs only when multiplying or dividing each side by a negative number; add/subtraction of terms from each side of an inequality does not change the direction of the inequality sign.
 3x + 3 ≥ 12
 3x ≥ 9
 x ≥ 3 change to x ≤3

Linear equations and their properties pg 274

System of equations pge 276

Linear equation y=mx+b pg 274
makes lines

quadratic equation ax^{2}+bx+c=0 pg 280
finds a parabola that opens up and down (never sideways)
 x^{2} > 0 up
 x^{2} < 0 down
 x = b/2a axis of symmetry of a parabola
 input "x" into the equation to find "y" to get
 coordinates (x,y)


Steps to graphing quadratic equation
y=ax^{2} + bx + c
1. Determine where the parabola opens upward/downward
a > 0 (up) or a < 0 (down)
2. Use the axis of symmetry formula to find "x"
x = b/2a
3. Vertex of the parabola: substitute the xcoordinate into the equation to find the ycoordinate (x,y)
4. Determine the yintercept: substitute x=0 into the standard form of the quadratic equation (0,y)
5. Determine the xintercept: substitute y=0 into the standard form of the quadratic equation (x,0),(x,0) [zero property]
6. Draw the graph w/ the coordinates. Symmetric to the vertical axis

a^{2}+b^{2}=c^{2}
