2 6.1 Add & Subtract Polynomials (Page 2 of 33) Polynomials A term is a constant, a variable, or a product of a constant and one or more variables raised to powers. A monomial is a constant, a variable, or a product of a constant and one or more variables raised to counting number (i.e. positive integer) powers. A binomial is the sum of two monomials. e.g. 45,!7x!x 1/2, 2x 3 y!4 e.g. 5, 3x x, 2x 3 y 4 e.g. 3x + 2y A trinomial is the sum of three monomials. e.g. x 2! x + 7 A polynomial is a monomial or a sum of monomials. e.g. 5x 3! 2x 2 + 7x! 9, 4x 5 y! xy 2,!2x + 8, 3, x The polynomial 4x 3! 2x 2 + x +12 is a polynomial in one variable with four terms, namely 4x 3,!2x 2, x and 12. By convention, we write polynomial so that the exponents decrease from left to right, which is called descending order. The degree of a term in one variable is the exponent on the variable. For example, the degree of 2y 4 is four. The degree of a term in two or more variables is the sum of the exponents on the variables. For example, the degree of!x 3 y 4 is seven. The degree of a polynomial is the highest degree of any term in the polynomial. The coefficient of a term is the constant factor of the term. The leading coefficient of a polynomial is the coefficient of the term with the highest degree. A linear polynomial has degree 1. A quadratic polynomial has degree 2. A cubic polynomial has degree 3. A constant has degree 0.

3 6.1 Add & Subtract Polynomials (Page 3 of 33) Example 1 Write each polynomial in descending order. Then use words such as linear, quadratic, cubic, polynomial, degree, one variable, two variables, coefficient and leading coefficient to describe each term and each expression. a.!3+ 8x! 4x 2 b. 4x + 2x c. 12 d. 3a 6 b 2 + 7ab 3! 3a 4 b Like Terms Like terms are either constant terms, or terms with identical variable parts (including exponents). The distributive property makes it possible to combine like terms by adding the coefficients while leaving the variable parts unchanged. For example,!3x 2 + 7x 2 = (!3+ 7)x 2 = 4x 2 Example 2 Simplify (combine like terms in descending order). 1. 5a 3! 4a 2 + 7a 3! a p 2 t 2 + p 2 t! 8 p 3 t 2! 9 p 2 t

(!8x 3 + 3x 2! 6) Polynomial Function A polynomial function is a function that can be written in the form f (x) = polynomial. Some examples are f (x) = 4x 5! 3x 3 + 7, g(x) = 2.3x 3! 7x, h(x) = 7 9 x. A polynomial function of degree two is called a quadratic function. Quadratic Function in Standard Form A quadratic function in standard form is a function that can be written as f (x) = ax 2 + bx + c, where a! 0. Furthermore, the quadratic term is ax 2, the linear term is bx, and the constant term is c. For example, f (x) =!x 2 + 7x is quadratic because a =!1, b = 7 and c = 0. Example 4 For f (x) =!2x 2 + 5x!1, find each of the following. 1. f (4) 2. f (!3) 3. f (0)

Parabolas can open downward like function g, or open upward like function f. If the parabola opens upward, then the vertex is located at the minimum point of the graph. If the parabola opens downward, then the vertex is located at the maximum point of the graph. The vertical line that goes through the vertex is called the axis of symmetry of the parabola.

16 6.3 Factoring Quadratic Polynomials (Page 16 of 33) 6.3 Factoring x 2 + bx + c = 1x 2 + bx + c Notice the patterns that develops in the following products. Last terms in the factored form The coefficient on the quadratic term is one (i.e. x 2 =1x 2 ) The coefficient of x in expanded form is the sum of the last terms in factored form (x + p)(x + q) = x 2 + qx + px + pq = x 2 + ( p + q)x + pq (x + 3)(x + 4) = x x + 3x +12 = x x +12 (x! 4)(x! 6) = x 2! 6x! 4x + 24 = x 2!10x + 24 (x + 5)(x! 7) = x 2! 7 x + 5x! 35 = x 2! 2x! 35 (x! 3)(x + 9) = x x! 3x! 27 = x x! 27 The constant term in expanded form is the product of the last terms in factored form Three Observations 1. The coefficient on the quadratic term is one (i.e. x 2 = 1x 2 ). 2. The constant term in each trinomial (i.e. pq) is the product of the constant terms in the factored form (i.e. the p and the q). 3. The linear coefficient in each trinomial (i.e. p + q) is the sum of the constant terms in the factored form. Steps to Factor the Quadratic Expression 1x 2 + bx + c = x 2 + bx + c = (x + p)(x + q) 1. List all the pairs of integers whose product is c. 2. Out of the list from step 1 find the pair of integers whose sum is b; those two integers are p and q. 3. Write the factored form of the expression: (x + p)(x + q).

Write f in factored form. If f (r) = 0, then r is a zero of f. That is, a zero of a function is the input number that makes the output number zero. To find a zero of a function, set the function equal to zero and solve. Notice that if r is a zero, then (r, 0) is the x-intercept. 4. Find the zeros of f. Example 2 1.

Factor 10x 3! 6x 2 + 5x! 3 Steps to Factor the Quadratic Expression ax 2 + bx + c 1. List all pairs of integers whose product is ac. Out of that list find the pair of integers whose sum is b; call those two integers m and n so that b = m + n. 2. Rewrite the bx term as mx + nx so that ax 2 + bx + c = ax 2 + mx + nx + c 3. Group the first two terms and the last two terms of the fourterm expression and factor out the greatest common factor from each pair of terms. 4.

24 6.5 Factoring Special Polynomials (Page 24 of 33) Example 3 Factor x 6! y 6 Factoring Guidelines / Strategies 1. If the GCF is not 1, then factor it out. 2. If a binomial is a difference of two square, then use a 2! b 2 = (a + b)(a! b) 3. For a four-term polynomial apply factor by grouping. 4. For a trinomial ax 2 + bx + c : a. If a = 1, then try to find two integers p and q whose product is c and whose sum is b. If the two numbers exist, then the factored form of the trinomial is (x + p)(x + q). b. If a! 1, then try to find two integers p and q whose product is ac and whose sum is b. If the two numbers exist, then rewrite bx = px + qx and factor the new fourterm polynomial by grouping. 5.

Zero Factor Property ab = 0 if and only if a = 0 or b = 0 In words this states that a product is zero if and only if one of the factors is zero. To use this principle to solve equations, two requirements are necessary: (1) one side of the equation must be zero, and (2) the other side must be in factored form. Example 1 1. Solve (x + 5)(x! 3) = 0 2. Solve c(2c + 7) = 0 3. Solve x 2! 4x! 5 = 0 4. Solve 4x 2!11x + 7 = 0
