4.5 (1 rating)

| 32 Questions

Note from the author:

A complete formative lesson with embedded slideshow, mini lecture screencasts, checks for understanding, practice items, mixed review, and reflection. I create these assignments to supplement each lesson of Pearson's Common Core Edition Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and Geometry courses. See also mathquest.net and twitter.com/mathquestEDU.

Solve It! This equation contains an infinite radical.

Square each side. You get a quadratic equation that also contains an infinite radical.

Are the two solutions of the quadratic equation also solutions of this equation? Explain.

Hint: consider substitution from one equation into the other.

Yes. Given that

and that radicals simplify to only real numbers that are positive, as shown here:

both equations must have the same solutions.

No. By substitution:

Therefore, the solutions of the quadratic equation are both positive and negative, as follows:

The solution to the original equation is positive.

Problem 1 Got It? Reasoning: Explain why a negative real number b has no real nth roots if n is even.

By Descartes' Rule of Signs and since b can be written as the following polynomial with no sign changes:

it follows that there can be at most 0 real nth roots.

By the rational root theorem and since b can be written as the following polynomial:

it follows that the only rational roots of b will be the factors of b over the factors of 0, which equal 0.

Any negative number squared is a positive number. Therefore, there can be no real nth roots (where n is even) for a negative number b.
