University Algebra with functions for company and lifestyles Sciences meets the call for for classes that emphasize challenge fixing, modeling, and real-world purposes for enterprise and the lifestyles sciences. The authors supply a company beginning in algebraic innovations and instructed scholars to use their realizing to suitable examples and functions they're more likely to stumble upon in collage or of their careers. extra know-how elements to be had via CL MATHSpace improve guide and encourage newcomers. this system addresses the desires of scholars in any respect levels--and particularly those that can have struggled in past algebra courses--offering an abundance of examples and workouts that make stronger options and make studying extra dynamic. The early creation of services in bankruptcy 1 guarantees compatibility with syllabi and offers a framework for pupil studying. non-compulsory Discovery and Exploration actions are built-in through the textual content; teachers may also choose to use graphing know-how as a device for challenge fixing and assessment or retention.

Use properties of rational exponents. ■ Combine radicals. ■ Use a calculator to evaluate a radical. ■ Use a radical expression to solve an application problem. Radicals and Properties of Radicals A square root of a number is defined as one of its two equal factors. For example, 5 is a square root of 25 because 5 is one of the two equal factors of 25. In a similar way, a cube root of a number is one of its three equal factors. Here are some examples. 25 ϭ ͑Ϫ5͒2 Number Equal Factors ͑Ϫ5͒͑Ϫ5͒ Ϫ5 (square root) Ϫ64 ϭ ͑Ϫ4͒3 ͑Ϫ4͒͑Ϫ4͒͑Ϫ4͒ Ϫ4 (cube root) 81 ϭ 34 3и3 и3и3 Root 3 (fourth root) Definition of nth Root of a Number Let a and b be real numbers and let n be a positive integer.
