1 FACTORING SHORTCUTS.. Although most factoring problems can be done with generic rectangles, there are two special factoring patterns that, if recognized, can be done by sight. The two patterns are known as Difference of Squares and Perfect Square Trinomials. The general patterns are as follows: Difference of Squares: Perfect Square Trinomial: a x b = ax + b ( )( ax b) ( ) a x + abx + b = ax + b Examples Difference of Squares x 49 = (x + 7)(x 7) 4x 5 = (x 5)(x + 5) x 6 = (x + 6)(x 6) 9x = (x )(x + ) Perfect Square Trinomials x 0x + 5 = (x 5) 9x + x + 4 = (x + ) x 6x + 9 = (x ) 4x + 0x + 5 = (x + 5) Sometimes removing a common factor reveals one of the special patterns. Example 8x 50y (4x 5y ) (x + 5y)(x 5y) Example x + x + (4x + 4x + ) (x + ) 0 Algebra Connections Parent Guide

3 ADDITION AND SUBTRACTION OF.. and.. RATIONAL EXPRESSIONS Addition and Subtraction of Rational Expressions uses the same process as simple numerical fractions. First, find a common denominator (if necessary). Second, convert the original fractions to equivalent ones with the common denominator. Third, add (or subtract) the new numerators over the common denominator. Finally, factor the numerator and denominator and reduce (if possible). See the Math Notes box on page 50. Note that these steps are only valid provided that the denominator is not zero. Example The least common multiple of n + is n( n+ ). ( ) and n( n+ ) To get a common denominator in the first fraction, multiply the fraction by n, a form of the number. n Multiply the second fraction by. (n+) + n(n+) = (n+) n n + n(n+) Multiply the numerator and denominator of each term. It may be necessary to distribute the numerator. = n n(n+) + 6 n(n+) Add, factor, and simplify the result. (Note: n 0 or ) = n+6 n(n+) (n+) n(n+) n Example ( ) x x x + 6 x + x + 6 x + 8 x + 4 x + 4 x + 4 x + 4 x + 4 Example x x x x x x x x 6 x + x x ( )( x ) x 4 ( x ) ( x ) 04 Algebra Connections Parent Guide

5 WORK AND MIXTURE PROBLEMS.. and.. Work problems are solved using the concept that if a job can be completed in r units of time, then its rate (or fraction of the job completed) is r. Mixture problems are solved using the concept that the product (value or percentage) x (quantity) must be consistent throughout the equation. Examples of Work Problems John can completely wash and dry the dishes in 0 minutes. His brother can do it in 0 minutes. How long will it take them working together? Solution: Let t = the time to complete the task so is their rate together. John s rate is t 0 and his brother s rate is. Since they 0 are working together we add the two rates together to get the combined rate. With two inflowing pipes open, a water tank can be filled in 5 hours. If the larger pipe can fill the tank alone in 7 hours, how long would the smaller pipe take to fill the tank? Solution: Let t = the time for the smaller pipe so is its rate. The combined rate is t 5 and the larger pipe s rate is. Since they are 7 working together we add the two rates together to get the combined rate. The equation is =. Solve using t fraction busters: 60t ( )= 60t t t + t = 60 5t = 60 ( ) t = minutes The equation is 7 + t =. Solve using 5 fraction busters: 5t ( 7 + t )= 5t 5 5t + 5 = 7t 5 = t t = 7.5 hours ( ) 06 Algebra Connections Parent Guide

6 Examples of Mixture Problems Alicia has 0 liters of an 80% acid solution. How many liters of water should she add to form a 0% acid solution? Solution: Use (%) ( liters)= (%) ( liters) Let x = liters of water added so x + 0 is new liters. The equation is ( 0.8) ( 0)= ( 0.) ( x + 0). Multiply by 0 to clear decimals and solve. ( 8) ( 0)= ( ) ( x + 0) 80 = x = x x = 6 liters A store has candy worth \$0.90 a pound and candy worth \$.0 a pound. If the owners want 60 pounds of candy worth \$.00 a pound, how many pounds of each candy should they use? Solution: Use ( \$ ) ( lbs. )= ( \$ ) ( lbs. ) Let x = pounds of \$0.90 candy so 60 x = pounds of \$.0 candy. The equation is 0.90(x) +.0(60 x) =.00(60). Multiply by 00 to clear decimals and solve. 90(x) + 0(60 x) = 00(60) 90x x = x = 00 x = lbs. of \$0.90 candy and 0 lbs. of \$.0 candy Note: The second example above could also have been solved using two equations, where x = \$0.90 candy and y = \$.0 candy: x + y = 60 and \$0.90x + \$.0y = \$60.00 Problems Solve each problem..
