7 R Working with Rational Epressions A rational epression is an algebraic epression that can be written as the quotient of two polnomials. A rational epression is undefined if the denominator is zero, so we write restrictions on the variables to avoid this. Simplifing Rational Epressions A rational epression can be simplified b factoring the numerator and the denominator, and then dividing out the common factors. EXAMPLE Simplif and state restrictions. m 3 n a) b) c) 6mn m 3 n a) b) 6mn 3 ( )( ) 3mn (7m ) ( )( 3) 3mn (n ) ( ) ( ) 7m ( ) ( 3) n m 0, n 0 3,3 Factor the numerator and the denominator to find the largest possible common factor to divide out.

9 Adding and Subtracting Rational Epressions To add or subtract rational epressions, ou must have a common denominator. To ensure that ou will use the lowest common denominator, factor the numerators and the denominators first. This will keep the epressions as simple as possible.

13 R 6 The Zeros of Linear and Quadratic Functions The Zero of a Linear Function A linear function of the form m b has one zero (-intercept), unless the line is horizontal. (A horizontal line has no -intercepts, unless it lies on the -ais. Then ever point on the line is an -intercept.) Factoring out the slope will give the -intercept. EXAMPLE What is the -intercept of 6? 6 ( 3) Solving for the zero, let 0. 0 ( 3) 3 Factor out the slope. The -intercept is 3, since substituting 3 results in a value of zero. (Hence the name zero of the function for an -intercept.) Copright 009 b Nelson Education Ltd. The Zeros of a Quadratic Function A quadratic function can have two zeros, one zero, or no zeros. The zeros of a quadratic function are also found b factoring the equation. When factoring is not possible, the quadratic formula can be used. The discriminant can be used to determine the number of zeros. Quadratic Formula The zeros of the function a b c are b b ac a. Discriminant If b ac 0, there are two zeros.

16 R 8 Transformations of Functions You can graph functions of the form af (k( d )) c b appling the appropriate transformations to ke points on the parent function f (). Stretches/compressions and reflections (based on a and k) must be applied before translations (based on c and d ). The value of a determines whether there is a vertical stretch or compression and whether there is a reflection in the -ais. The -coordinate of each point is multiplied b a. If a, the graph of f () is stretched verticall b the factor ZaZ. If 0 a, the graph is compressed verticall b the factor a. If a is negative, the graph is also reflected in the -ais. The value of k determines whether there is a horizontal stretch or compression and whether there is a reflection in the -ais. The -coordinate of each point is multiplied b k. If k, the graph of f () is compressed horizontall b the factor k. If 0 k, the graph is stretched horizontall b the factor k. If k is negative, the graph is also reflected in the -ais. The value of c determines the vertical translation. This value is added to the -coordinate of each point. If If the graph is translated c units up. the graph is translated c units down. The value of d determines the horizontal translation. This value is added to the -coordinate of each point. If If c 0, c 0, d 0, d 0, the graph is translated d units to the right. the graph is translated d units to the left.

21 R 0 Trigonometric Ratios and Special Angles Right-Triangle Definitions of Trigonometric Ratios The trigonometric ratios for an acute angle can be defined using a right triangle, as shown below. sin u opposite hpotenuse cos u adjacent hpotenuse csc u hpotenuse opposite sec u hpotenuse opposite hpotenuse u adjacent opposite tan u opposite adjacent cot u adjacent opposite The Pthagorean theorem is often useful for solving problems that involve right triangles: (adjacent) (opposite) (hpotenuse) The right-triangle definitions given above cannot be used for an angle that is not acute, so we need to broaden the definitions. Definitions of Trigonometric Ratios for An Angle An angle in standard position has its verte at the origin and rotates counterclockwise from the positive -ais to its terminal arm. If point (, ) is on the terminal arm of angle u, at a distance r units from the origin, we define the trigonometric ratios of u as follows: sin u r csc u r (, ) Copright 009 b Nelson Education Ltd. cos u r tan u sec u r cot u In the diagram above, b is the acute angle related to u. The related acute angle alwas has one arm on the -ais. The trigonometric ratios for angle b are equal in magnitude to those for angle u, but the are alwas positive. The CAST rule is an eas wa to remember which trigonometric ratios are positive in each quadrant. Since r is alwas positive, the sign of each ratio depends on the signs of the coordinates of the point. In quadrant, all (A) ratios are positive because both and are positive. In quadrant, onl sine (S) and its reciprocal cosecant are positive, since is negative and is positive. In quadrant 3, onl tangent (T) and its reciprocal cotangent are positive, because both and are negative.

29 R 3 Solving Trigonometric Equations in Degrees Trigonometric functions can have man solutions, due to their periodic nature. The number of solutions for a function depends on the domain of the function. The solutions can be found using various approaches, as shown in the following eamples. EXAMPLE Solve USING SPECIAL TRIANGLES AND THE CAST RULE sin u 0.5 where u30, 360. Since sin u r opposite hpotenuse, we can see that u 30 is a solution. The terminal arm for 30 is in quadrant I. S A ( 3, ) ( 3, ) The value of 0.5 is recognizable as a special value from the special triangle. The CAST rule states that sine values are positive for first quadrant and second quadrant angles. The terminal arms of these angles are mirror images in the -ais. T C Copright 009 b Nelson Education Ltd. The angle in quadrant II is There are no other values of u in the domain 30, 360. Therefore, the solutions are u 30 or 50. R 3 Solving Trigonometric Equations in Degrees: Review of Essential Skills and Knowledge 567

30 EXAMPLE USING A CALCULATOR AND THE CAST RULE Solve cos u 0.8 for u, to the nearest degree, where u30, 360. The cosine ratio is negative in quadrants II and III. Since 0.8 is not from a special triangle, we use a calculator to determine the related acute angle. The related acute angle is about 37. S A 3 T C The angle u in quadrant II is The angle u in quadrant III is Therefore, the two solutions in the required domain are 3 and 7. EXAMPLE 3 Solve USING THE --r DEFINITIONS AND A CALCULATOR tan u for u, to the nearest degree, where u30, 360, so we can use (, ) (,) and (, ) as the points on the terminal arm. B definition, tan u.

31 S (, ) A Determine the inverse cosine of to find the related acute angle T (, ) C The related acute angle is about 63. The diagram shows that the angles in the required domain are u and u Therefore, the two solutions in the required domain are 7 and 97. Copright 009 b Nelson Education Ltd. Practising.

32 R Proving Trigonometric Identities An identit is an equation that is true for all possible values of its variable. To disprove an identit (in other words, to prove that an equation is not an identit), we need to find onl one value of the variable that does not satisf the equation. To prove that an equation is an identit, we need to show that the two sides of the equation are equal for all possible values of the variable. To do this, we need to rewrite one or both sides of the equation b substituting known identities and/or using algebraic techniques. Algebraic Techniques factoring Reciprocal Identities Quotient Identities csc u sin u, tan u sin u cos u, sin u 0 cos u 0 Pthagorean Identities cos u sin u epanding and simplifing adding or subtracting rational epressions using a common denominator sec u cos u, cot u cos u sin u, cos u 0 sin u 0 cot u tan u, tan u 0 tan u sec u cot u sec u EXAMPLE Show that cos u sin u is not an identit. To prove that this equation is not an identit, we need to find a value of u that does not satisf the equation. Tr u 5. Left side cos 5 sin 5 Right side Copright 009 b Nelson Education Ltd. For u 5, the equation is not satisfied. Therefore, the equation cos u sin u is not an identit. 570 Advanced Functions: Review of Essential Skills and Knowledge

33 EXAMPLE Prove each identit. tan u a) b) cos u sin u sin u tan u tan u sin u cos u Copright 009 b Nelson Education Ltd. a) To prove the identit, we must work with each side independentl. sin u LS tan u RS cos u sin u Since we have shown that the left side and right side are equal, the equation is an identit ever possible value of u will satisf the equation. There are values of u that will result in each side being undefined, however, so a restriction is needed: cos u 0. b) Work with each side independentl. LS tan u tan u sin u cos u Since the left side and right side are equal, the equation is an identit. Again, restrictions are needed to avoid undefined values: sin u 0, cos u 0. Practising sin u cos u cos u sin u cos u sin u cos u cos u sin u sin u sin u cos u cos u sin u cos u RS sin u cos u sin u cos u.
