So why isn t the same A aircraft used for a fast flight from New York to Los Angeles? Concerns about cost efficiency and pollution are two reasons. However, most people agree that the biggest problem is noise. Traveling at Mach, the supersonic jet is flying faster than the speed of sound. At this speed the Concorde creates a cone-shaped wave in the air, on which there is a momentary change in air pressure. This change in air pressure causes a thunderlike sonic boom. When the jet is traveling parallel to the ground, the cone-shaped wave intersects the ground along one branch of a hyperbola. People on the ground hear the boom as the hyperbola passes them. Sonic booms not only are noisy, but they have also been known to cause physical destruction such as broken windows and cracked plaster. For this reason supersonic jets are restricted from flying over land areas in the United States and much of the world. Some engineers believe that changing the silhouette of the plane can lessen the sonic boom, but most agree that it is impossible to eliminate the noise altogether. In this chapter we discuss curves, including the hyperbola, that occur when a geometric plane intersects a cone. In Exercise 4 of Section 11.4 you will see how the altitude of the aircraft is related to the width of the area where the sonic boom is heard.

2 7 (11-) Chapter 11 Nonlinear Systems and the Conic Sections 11.1 NONLINEAR SYSTEMS OF EQUATIONS In this section Solving by Elimination Applications E X A M P L E 1 y 4 (, 3) 3 y = x 1 (1, 0) y = x + 1 FIGURE 11.1 E X A M P L E x We studied systems of linear equations in Chapter 4. In this section we turn our attention to nonlinear systems of equations. Solving by Elimination Equations such as y x, y x, y x, y x, and y log (x) are nonlinear equations because their graphs are not straight lines. We say that a system of equations is nonlinear if at least one equation in the system is nonlinear. We solve a nonlinear system just like a linear system, by elimination of variables. However, because the graphs of nonlinear equations may intersect at more than one point, there may be more than one ordered pair in the solution set to the system. A parabola and a line Solve the system of equations and draw the graph of each equation on the same coordinate system: y x 1 x y 1 We can eliminate y by substituting y x 1 into x y 1: x y 1 x (x 1) 1 Substitute x 1 for y. x x 0 (x 1)(x ) 0 x 1 0 or x 0 x 1 or x Replace x by 1 and in y x 1 to find the corresponding values of y: y (1) 1 y () 1 y 0 y 3 Check that each of the points (1, 0) and (, 3) satisfies both of the original equations. The solution set is (1, 0), (, 3). If we solve x y 1 for y, we get y x 1. The line y x 1 has y-intercept (0, 1) and slope 1. The graph of y x 1 is a parabola with vertex (0, 1). Of course, (1, 0) and (, 3) are on both graphs. The two graphs are shown in Fig Graphing is not an accurate method for solving any system of equations. However, the graphs of the equations in a nonlinear system help us to understand how many solutions we should have for the system. It is not necessary to graph a system to solve it. Even when the graphs are too difficult to sketch, we can solve the system. Solving a system algebraically Solve the system: x y y 3 x y

3 11.1 Nonlinear Systems of Equations (11-3) 73 If we substitute y x into the first equation to eliminate y, we will get a fourth-degree equation to solve. Instead, we can eliminate the variable x by writing x y as x y. Now replace x by y in the first equation: x y y 3 (y ) y y 3 y 3y 3 y 3y 0 (y )(y 1) 0 Solve by factoring. y 0 or y 1 0 y or y 1 Let y in the equation x y to find the corresponding x: x x 3 x 3 Now let y 1 in the equation x y to find the corresponding x: x 1 x 4 x Check these values in the original equations. The solution set is (3, ), (3, ), (, 1), (, 1). The graphs of these two equations intersect at four points. E X A M P L E 3 Solving a system algebraically Solve the system: (1) x 1 y 1 () 1 x 3 y 1 3 study tip When you take notes leave space. Go back later and fill in more details, make corrections, or work another problem of the same type. Usually with equations involving rational expressions we first multiply by the least common denominator (LCD), but this would make the given system more complicated. So we will just use the addition method to eliminate y: 6 x 3 y 3 Eq. (1) multiplied by 3 1 x 3 y 1 Eq. () 3 7 x x 7 1 x

4 74 (11-4) Chapter 11 Nonlinear Systems and the Conic Sections To find y, substitute x 1 into Eq. (1): 1 1 y y y 1y 1 1 y 1y 1 Multiply each side by the LCD, 1y. 4y 1 3y y 1 Check that x 1 and y 1 satisfy both original equations. The solution set is 1, 1. A system of nonlinear equations might involve exponential or logarithmic functions. To solve such systems, you will need to recall some facts about exponents and logarithms. E X A M P L E 4 A system involving logarithms Solve the system y log (x 8) y 3 log (x) Eliminate y by substitution log (x 8) for y in the second equation: log (x 8) 3 log (x) Eliminate y. log (x 8) log (x) 3 Subtract log (x) from each side. log x 8 x 3 x 8 8 x Quotient rule for logarithms Definition of logarithm x 8 8x Multiply each side by x. 8 7x Subtract x from each side. 4 x Divide each side by 7. If x 4, then y log (4 8) log (3). Check (4, ) in both equations. The solution to the system is (4, ). Applications The next example shows a geometric problem that can be solved with a system of nonlinear equations. E X A M P L E Nonlinear equations in applications A 1-foot ladder is leaning against a wall so that the distance from the bottom of the ladder to the wall is one-half of the distance from the top of the ladder to the ground. Find the distance from the top of the ladder to the ground.

5 11.1 Nonlinear Systems of Equations (11-) 7 To see the solutions, graph y 1 1 x, y 1 x, and y 3 x. The line intersects the circle twice. 0 calculator close-up Let x be the number of feet from the bottom of the ladder to the wall and y be the number of feet from the top of the ladder to the ground (see Fig. 11.). We can write two equations involving x and y: x y 1 y x Solve by substitution: x (x) Replace y by x. x 4x x x 4 x 4 3 Because x represents distance, x must be positive. So x 3. Because y x, we get y 6. The distance from the top of the ladder to the ground is 6 feet. Pythagorean theorem 1 ft x ft y ft FIGURE 11. The next example shows how a nonlinear system can be used to solve a problem involving work. E X A M P L E 6 Nonlinear equations in applications A large fish tank at the Gulf Aquarium can usually be filled in 10 minutes using pumps A and B. However, pump B can pump water in or out at the same rate. If pump B is inadvertently run in reverse, then the tank will be filled in 30 minutes. How long would it take each pump to fill the tank by itself? Let a represent the number of minutes that it takes pump A to fill the tank alone and b represent the number of minutes it takes pump B to fill the tank alone. The rate at which pump A fills the tank is 1 a of the tank per minute, and the rate at which pump B fills the tank is 1 b of the tank per minute. Because the work completed is the product of the rate and time, we can make the following table when the pumps work together to fill the tank: Rate Time Work Pump A 1 a t ank min 10 min 1 0 a Pump B 1 b t ank min 10 min 1 0 b tank tank Note that each pump fills a fraction of the tank and those fractions have a sum of 1: (1) a b

6 76 (11-6) Chapter 11 Nonlinear Systems and the Conic Sections helpful hint Note that we could write equations about the rates. Pump A s rate is 1a tank per minute, B s rate is 1b tank per minute, and together their rate is 110 tank per minute or 130 tank per minute b 1 a b 3 a 0 In the 30 minutes in which pump B is working in reverse, A puts in 3 0 of the tank a whereas B takes out 3 0 of the tank. Since the tank still gets filled, we can write the b following equation: () a b Multiply Eq. (1) by 3 and add the result to Eq. () to eliminate b: 60 4 a 4a 60 a 1 Use a 1 in Eq. (1) to find b: a b Eq. (1) multiplied by a b Eq. () b b 3 Subtract from each side. b 30 So pump A fills the tank in 1 minutes working alone, and pump B fills the tank in 30 minutes working alone.

Why are some equations called nonlinear? If the graph of an equation is not a straight line, then it is called nonlinear.. Why do we graph the equations in a nonlinear system? With a graph we can see the approximate value of the solutions and the number of solutions. 3. Why don t we solve systems by graphing? Graphing is not an accurate method for solving a system and the graphs might be difficult to draw. 4. What techniques do we use to solve nonlinear systems?
