(x + a)(x + b) = x² + (a + b)x + ab
Students will explore functions, solve equations and operate with radical, polynomial and rational expressions. Students will investigate piecewise and quadratic functions, using numerical, analytical, and graphical approaches, focusing on the use of these functions in problem-solving situations.
Students will simplify and operate with radical expressions, polynomials, and rational expressions.
Factor expressions by greatest common factor, grouping, trial and error, and special products limited to the formulas below.
