Key to Algebra Book 2 Variables, Terms and Expressions by Julie King, Peter Rasmussen

By Julie King, Peter Rasmussen

Too many scholars finish their research of arithmetic sooner than ever taking an algebra direction. Others try and examine algebra, yet are unprepared and can't sustain. Key to Algebra was once constructed with the idea that any one can examine simple algebra if the topic is gifted in a pleasant, non-threatening demeanour and anyone is out there to assist whilst wanted. a few academics locate that their scholars profit by way of operating via those books ahead of enrolling in a customary algebra course--thus enormously bettering their probabilities of good fortune. Others use Key to Algebra because the simple textual content for an individualized algebra path, whereas nonetheless others use it as a complement to their typical hardbound textual content. enable scholars to paintings at their very own velocity. the most important to Algebra books are casual and self-directing. ebook 2 covers Variables, phrases, and Expressions.Format: PaperbackPublisher: Key Curriculum Press

Example text

This is, of course, a ridiculously simple example, but it makes the point. Equations that have this property are called identities. Some examples of identities would be 2x = x + x 3=3 (x – 2)(x + 2) = x2 – 4 All of these equations are true for any value of x. The second example, 3 = 3, is interesting because it does not even contain an x, so obviously its truthfulness cannot depend on the value of x! When you are attempting to solve an equation algebraically and you end up with an obvious identity (like 3 = 3), then you know that the original equation must also be an identity, and therefore it has an infinite number of solutions.

Infinite Number of Solutions Consider the equation x=x 45 Chapter 2: Introduction to Algebra This equation is obviously true for every possible value of x. This is, of course, a ridiculously simple example, but it makes the point. Equations that have this property are called identities. Some examples of identities would be 2x = x + x 3=3 (x – 2)(x + 2) = x2 – 4 All of these equations are true for any value of x. The second example, 3 = 3, is interesting because it does not even contain an x, so obviously its truthfulness cannot depend on the value of x!

46 Chapter 2: Introduction to Algebra What we want to do when we solve an equation is to produce an equivalent equation that tells us the solution directly. Going back to our previous example, 2x + 3 = 7, we can say that the equation x=2 is an equivalent equation, because they both have the same solution, namely x = 2. We need to have some way to convert an equation like 2x + 3 = 7 into an equivalent equation like x = 2 that tells us the solution. We solve equations by using methods that rearrange the equation in a manner that does not change the solution set, with a goal of getting the variable by itself on one side of the equal sign.
