1 REVIEW SHEETS INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA MATH 95 A Summary of Concepts Needed to be Successful in Mathematics The following sheets list the key concepts which are taught in the specified math course. The sheets present concepts in the order they are taught and give examples of their use. WHY THESE SHEETS ARE USEFUL To help refresh your memory on old math skills you may have forgotten. To prepare for math placement test. To help you decide which math course is best for you. HOW TO USE THESE SHEETS Students who successfully review spend from four to five hours on this material. We recommend that you cover up the solutions to the examples and try working the problems one by one. Then, check your work by looking at the solution steps and the answer. KEEP IN MIND These sheets are not intended to be a short course. You should use them to simply help you determine at what skill level in math you should begin study. For many people, the key to success and enjoyment of learning math is in getting started at the right place. You will, most likely, be more satisfied and comfortable if you start onto the path of math and science by selecting the appropriate beginning stepping stone. 1) Solve linear equations. Solve: 3z 5 z 3 2 = z ) Solve an equation or formula for a specified variable. a) Solve for y: x = 2 3 (y + 4) Solve for x: rx = 11x + 7 3) Use formulas and mathematical models.

2 The mathematical model V = C(1 rt) is a relationship among the quantities C (original cost of a piece of equipment), r (percent steady depreciation rate expressed as a decimal), t (age, in years, of the equipment), and V (current value). What is the value after 5 years of a weaving loom that was originally purchased for \$2100 and has steadily decreased in value at a rate of 6% per year? 4) Solve an application problem by setting up a linear equation. a) (Percent) The price of an item is increased by 40%. When the item does not sell, it is reduced by 40% of the increased price. If the final price is \$220.00, what was the original price? What single percent reduction of the original price is equivalent to increasing by 40% then reducing by 40%? (Interest) A real estate agent receives a commission of 8% of the selling price of a house. What should be the selling price so that the seller can get \$87,400? 5) Find the area, perimeter, volume, and surface area of common shapes (rectangle, square, triangle, circle, rectangular solid). 2 ft ft 10 cm 5 ft 14 a) For the rectangular solid shown above left, find each of the following and write proper units. i) Perimeter of the top surface (shaded) ii) Area of the top surface (shaded) iii) Volume of the solid (box) iv) Total surface area including all six surfaces.

Find the x- and y-intercepts of the line whose equation is 3x 2y = 6. c) Sketch the line whose equation is 3x 2y = 6 by using its x- and y-intercepts. 7) Determine the slope of a line by counting and the ratio rise/run, and by the slope formula. a) Determine the slope of a line that passes through the points (0, 2) and (5, 4). AB BA Y Determine the slope of line A and line B shown on the graph at right. 20 c) Determine the slope of a horizontal line that passes through the point (5, 20). 8) Sketch a line having a specified slope X Sketch an example of a line for each given slope: 2/3, 2, 0, undefined ) Given a linear equation in two variables, convert it to slope-intercept form and determine the slope and y-intercept of the graph of the line. Write 2x + 3y = 18 in slope-intercept form, then find the slope and y-intercept of its line. 10) Determine if two lines are parallel or perpendicular or neither. a) Plot the four points (1, 4), (3,2), (4, 6), and (2, 8) and join them consecutively with straight lines segments. Use slopes to show that a pair of opposite sides of the figure are parallel and to show that a pair of adjacent sides are not perpendicular. Determine whether these two lines are parallel, perpendicular, or neither: 3x 2y = 6 and 2x + 3y = 6. 11) Given the graph of a vertical or horizontal line write its equation; given its equation sketch its graph. a) What is the equation of the line B shown in the graph above? Sketch the graph of the line whose equation is y = 2. 12) Write the equation of a specified line using the slope-intercept form and point-slope form. a) If a line passes through the points (2, 5) and ( 3, 6), find an equation of the line in point-slope form and in slope-intercept form. Find the equation of a line which passes through (1, 3) and is perpendicular to the line 2x y = 1. 3

4 ) Interpret information depicted in graphs. Suppose in a city riders pay a certain amount for each time they ride a bus. For frequent users a monthly pass is available for purchase.
