1 C H A P T E R Rtionl Epressions nformtion is everywhere in the newsppers nd mgzines we red, the televisions we wtch, nd the computers we use. And I now people re tlking bout the Informtion Superhighwy, which will deliver vst mounts of informtion directly to consumers homes. In the future the combintion of telephone, television, nd computer will give us on-the-spot helth cre recommendtions, video conferences, home shopping, nd perhps even electronic voting nd driver s license renewl, to nme just few. There is even tlk of 500 television chnnels! Some eperts re concerned tht the consumer will give up privcy for this technology. Others worry bout regultion, ccess, nd content of the enormous interntionl computer network. Whtever the future of this technology, few people understnd how ll their electronic devices work. However, this vst rry of electronics rests on physicl principles, which re described by mthemticl formuls. In Eercises 49 nd 50 of Section. we will see tht the formul governing resistnce for receivers connected in prllel involves rtionl epressions, which re the subject of this chpter.

2 4 (-) Chpter Rtionl Epressions In this section Definition of Rtionl Epressions Domin Reducing to Lowest Terms Building Up the Denomintor Rtionl Functions Applictions If the domin consists of ll rel numbers ecept 5, some people write R 5 for the domin. Even though there re severl wys to indicte the domin, you should keep prcticing intervl nottion becuse it is used in lgebr, trigonometry, nd clculus. E X A M P L E. PROPERTIES OF RATIONAL EXPRESSIONS A rtio of two integers is clled rtionl number; rtio of two polynomils is clled rtionl epression. Rtionl epressions re s fundmentl to lgebr s rtionl numbers re to rithmetic. In this section we look crefully t some of the properties of rtionl numbers nd see how they etend to rtionl epressions. Definition of Rtionl Epressions A rtionl epression is the rtio of two polynomils with the denomintor not equl to zero. For emple,, 5,, y 5, y nd re rtionl epressions. The rtionl number is rtionl epression becuse nd re monomils nd is rtio of two monomils. If the denomintor of rtionl epression is, it is usully omitted, s in the epression 5. Domin The domin of rtionl epression is the set of ll rel numbers tht cn be used in plce of the vrible. Becuse the denomintor of rtionl epression cnnot be zero, the domin of rtionl epression consists of the set of rel numbers ecept those tht cuse the denomintor to be zero. The domin of 5 is the set of ll rel numbers ecluding 5. In set-builder nottion this set is written s 5, nd in intervl nottion it is written s (, 5) (5, ). Domin Find the domin of ech rtionl epression. ) b) y 9 5y c) ) The denomintor is zero if 9 0or 9. The domin is 9 or (, 9) (9, ). b) The denomintor is zero if 5y 0 or y 0. The domin is y y 0 or (, 0) (0, ).

( )( ) 0 Fctor completely. 0 or 0 Zero fctor property or The domin is the set of ll rel numbers ecept nd. This set is written s nd, or in intervl nottion s (, ) (, ) (, ). CAUTION The numbers tht you find when you set the denomintor equl to zero nd solve for re not in the domin of the rtionl epression. The solutions to tht eqution re ecluded from the domin. Most students lern to convert into 4 by dividing into to get nd then multiply by to get 4. In lgebr it is better to do this conversion by multiplying the numertor nd denomintor of by s shown here. Reducing to Lowest Terms Ech rtionl number cn be written in infinitely mny equivlent forms. For emple, Ech equivlent form of is obtined from by multiplying both numertor nd denomintor by the sme nonzero number. For emple, 4 nd 9. Note tht we re ctully multiplying by equivlent forms of, the multiplictive identity. If we strt with 4 nd convert it into, we re simplifying by reducing 4 to its lowest terms. We cn reduce s follows: 4 A rtionl number is epressed in its lowest terms when the numertor nd denomintor hve no common fctors other thn. In reducing 4, we divide the numertor nd denomintor by the common fctor, or divide out the common fctor. We cn multiply or divide both numertor nd denomintor of rtionl number by the sme nonzero number without chnging the vlue of the rtionl number. This fct is clled the bsic principle of rtionl numbers. If b Bsic Principle of Rtionl Numbers is rtionl number nd c is nonzero rel number, then b c. bc

4 (-4) Chpter Rtionl Epressions CAUTION Although it is true tht 5, 4 we cnnot divide out the s in this epression becuse the s re not fctors. We cn divide out only common fctors when reducing frctions. Just s rtionl number hs infinitely mny equivlent forms, rtionl epression lso hs infinitely mny equivlent forms. To reduce rtionl epressions to its lowest terms, we follow ectly the sme procedure s we do for rtionl numbers: Fctor the numertor nd denomintor completely, then divide out ll common fctors. E X A M P L E A negtive sign in frction cn be plced in three loctions: The sme goes for rtionl epressions: 5y 5y 5y Reducing Reduce ech rtionl epression to its lowest terms. ) 8 b) 7 b 4 b ) Fctor 8 s nd 4 s 7: Fctor. Divide out the common fctors. b) Becuse this epression is lredy fctored, we use the quotient rule for eponents to reduce: 7 b 5 b b In the net emple we use the techniques for fctoring polynomils tht we lerned in Chpter 5.

There re very few people who cn listen to music or converstion nd study t the sme time. b) Fctor out from the numertor to get common fctor: c) ( 8) 4 4( 4) ( )( 4) ( )( ) 4 4 w ( w) w ( w) The rtionl epressions in Emple () re equivlent becuse they hve the sme vlue for ny replcement of the vribles, provided tht the replcement is in the domin of both epressions. In other words, the eqution 8 Fctoring out 4 will give the common fctor. Difference of two cubes, difference of two squres Divide out common fctors. is n identity. It is true for ny vlue of ecept nd. The min points to remember for reducing rtionl epressions re summrized s follows. Since ( b) b, plcement of negtive sign in rtionl epression chnges the ppernce of the epression: ( ) ( ) Strtegy for Reducing Rtionl Epressions. All reducing is done by dividing out common fctors.. Fctor the numertor nd denomintor completely to see the common fctors.. Use the quotient rule to reduce rtio of two monomils involving eponents. 4. We my hve to fctor out common fctor with negtive sign to get identicl fctors in the numertor nd denomintor. Building Up the Denomintor In Section. we will see tht only rtionl epressions with identicl denomintors cn be dded or subtrcted. Frctions without identicl denomintors cn be converted to equivlent frctions with common denomintor by reversing the procedure for reducing frctions to its lowest terms. This procedure is clled building up the denomintor. Consider converting the frction into n equivlent frction with denomintor of 5. Any frction tht is equivlent to cn be obtined by multiplying the numertor nd denomintor of by the sme nonzero number. Becuse 5 7, we multiply the numertor nd denomintor of by 7 to get n equivlent frction with denomintor of 5:

6 8 (-) Chpter Rtionl Epressions E X A M P L E 4 Notice tht reducing nd building up re ectly the opposite of ech other. In reducing you remove fctor tht is common to the numertor nd denomintor, nd in building-up you put common fctor into the numertor nd denomintor.

Then we multiply the numertor nd denomintor of the simpler epression by the missing fctors.

Applictions A rtionl epression cn occur in finding n verge cost. The verge cost of mking product is the totl cost divided by the number of products mde. Averge cost function Mercedes Benz spent \$700 million to develop its new 999 M clss SUV, which will sell for round \$40,000 (Motor Trend, July 998, If the cost of mnufcturing the SUV is \$0,000 ech, then wht rtionl function gives the verge cost of developing nd mnufcturing vehicles? Compre the verge cost per vehicle for mnufcturing levels of 0,000 vehicles nd 00,000 vehicles. The polynomil 0, ,000,000 gives the cost in dollrs of developing nd mnufcturing vehicles. The verge cost per vehicle is given by the rtionl function 0, ,000,000 AC().
