Algebra I Chapter 8

CommonMisconceptionYou may be temptedto try to solve theequation in Example 4bby dividing each side ofthe equation by x.Remember, however,that x is an unknownquantity. If you divideby x, you may actuallybe dividing by zero,which is undefined.b. x 2 = 7xWrite the equation so that it is of the form ab = 0.x 2 = 7xOriginal equationx 2 - 7x = 0Subtract 7x from each side.x(x - 7) = 0 Factor using the GCF of x 2 and -7x, which is x.x = 0 or x - 7 = 0 Zero Product Propertyx = 7 Solve each equation.The roots are 0 and 7. Check by substituting 0 and 7 for x in the original equation.4A. 3n(n + 2) = 0 4B. 7 d 2 - 35d = 0 4C. x 2 = -10xPersonal Tutor at ca.algebra1.comExamples 1–3(pp. 426–427)Example 4(pp. 428–429)Factor each polynomial.1. 9 x 2 + 36x 2. 4 r 2 + 8rs + 28r3. 5 y 2 - 15y + 4y - 12 4. 5c - 10 c 2 + 2d - 4cdSolve each equation.

The height h of the flare in feetabove the sea is modeled by the formulah = 100t - 16 t 2 , where t is the time inseconds after the flare is launched. Leth = 0 and solve 0 = 100t - 16 t 2 for t. Howmany seconds will it take for the flare toreturn to the sea?

The height h, in feet, of the ball above the ground ismodeled by the equation h = 2 + 48t - 16 t 2 . How long was the ball in theair if the catcher catches the ball when it is 2 feet above the ground? Isyour answer reasonable in the context of this situation?30. MARINE BIOLOGY In a pool at an aquarium, a dolphin jumps out of thewater traveling at 20 feet per second. Its height h, in feet, above the waterafter t seconds is given by the formula h = 20t - 16 t 2 . Solve the equationfor h = 0 and interpret the solution.Real-World CareerMarine BiologistA marine biologist usesmath to study andanalyze factors thataffect organisms living inand near the ocean.For more information,go to ca.algebra1.com.Factor each polynomial.31. 12 x 2 y 2 z + 40x y3z 2 32. 18 a 2 b c2- 48ab c3GEOMETRY Find an expression for the area of a square with thegiven perimeter.33.
