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.
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 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
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.
