Math Precalculus 11 week 6

This week what stood out to me was finding out how to identify perfect square trinomials. below is an example of a perfect square trinomial.

x^2+8x+16

To make sure it is a perfect square trinomial you have to divide the middle number by 2 then square it, the number you get should be the last number if it is not that means it is not a perfect square trinomial.

This week in class we learn how to make a number into an absolute value. In short, it is finding how far away from 0 a number is on a number line. when you are asked to find an entire radical you will see a number with two lines on either side of the number.

Eg. l-45l = 45

Eg. l32l = 32

If there is a minus symbol on the outside it means the radical will be negative.

Eg. -l-28l = -28

This week the thing that I learned in class that I found the most interesting was how to find the sum of an infinite geometric series. For a geometric series to be infinite the common ratio (r) has to be greater than -1 and less than 1 (Ex. 0.89).

The equation to find the sum of an infinite geometric series you have to use the following equation

a/1-r

if we had a series with the 1st term being 3 and the difference being 0.72 then the equation would look like the following.

3/1-0.72

 

3/-.28

 

-10.71

This week I learned a lot of new things but one that stood out was finding out how to add up all the numbers in a arithmetic sequence. The formula we use is below.

S_n=(t_1+t_n)\cdot (n\div2)

In a sequence such as 1,3,5,7,9 to find S_{23} you would have to use the above equation as well as and equation to find t_{23} the solution is as follows in the picture of my work.
