Week 6 in Precalc

This week we learned how to factor using the quadratic formula

To solve this it’s easiest to determine was terms are A,B, and C. Once these variables are determined substitute these variables for the numbers from the equation. Use bedmas to solve for X.

Week 5 in Precalc 11

This week we learned how to trinomials

The first step in this example is to multiply the first and third term. Next is to factor the product, between the numbers choose the factors that add up to equal the second term in this case: 2+9=11. Next replace 11x with 2x + 9x and separate the 4 terms into groups of 2 as shown in the example. Next find greatest factor and divide the terms as shown. Divide and place the factors outside of the brackets. Place the numbers in a new bracket and multiply the quotient  by the factors 2x+3. Lastly check your work.

2 Reasons Why Piggy is the Best Friend You’ve Always Wanted But Never Knew You Needed


He’s chubby, almost blind, has asthma, and yeah at first he was a tad annoying but what BEST friends aren’t?

1. He never hogs the spotlight




When it comes to having a best friend you always want people to know you’re best friends, I mean what’s worse than someone calling your best friend their best friend right. But do you really want your friend to out shine you? Don’t worry about it, if you love attention Piggy here wouldn’t dare! He’ll stand by you without stealing the show, I mean he’ll do anything to avoid the fat jokes, or how about that cute girl in your math class who just became single? We all know he’s not much to look at.


2. He gives the best advice




Everyone loves a blanket fresh out of the dryer or a warm cup of hot chocolate during winter but you know what’s more comforting than both of those? The warm hug that is… friendly advice! Piggy to Ralph is like Remy to Lou from “Ratatouille”, always behind the scene but also kind of pulling the strings (in a friendly way). Piggy’s the type of guy to give you rational advice but also understands the fun sides of things. For example, someone’s giving you a hard time? Piggy will tell you to stay calm but also how could get back at them.

Week 4 in Precalc 11

This week we learned how to divide radicals. I struggled with this because of a new concept we learned called “Rationalizing the denominator”, which in a sense is really just multiplying the whole fraction by its denominator. By doing so, we’re getting rid of the square root on the denominator which in this equations case is 7.

A tip I find helpful when doing these type of equations is simplifying each radical before multiplying or dividing. For example \sqrt{72} gets converted to 6\sqrt{2} . After this step multiplying become much simpler in my opinion.




Week 3 in Precalc 11

This week in precalc I learned that when doing absolute values if a negative number is within braces it really means its a positive absolute value. We know this because it all depends on the numbers distance from 0.

For example:| -10|

so as shown because -10 is 10 spots from 0 the absolute value is 10

In the novel To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee is about the innocence of two children in the town of Maycomb, Alabama in the time of the Jim Crow laws. I learned throughout reading the novel that the world is not as perfect as it may seem or as much as you want it to be. In this novel Jim and Scout Finch grow up seeing their lawyer father protect a black man. Although everyone knows this man is innocent for the simple fact that he is black he is treated unfairly and eventually prosecuted. The children put every last bit of faith into their father that he would be able to convince the jury that he is innocent and his loss in court destroyed the children’s hope to overcome the color of his skin.
