Abstract:
Elementary Algebra is a work text that covers the traditional topics studied in a modern elementary algebra course. It is intended for students who (1) have no exposure to elementary algebra, (2) have previously had an unpleasant experience with elementary algebra, or (3) need to review algebraic concepts and techniques. Includes glossary,sample sets and practice sets, section and review exercises, and solutions. Contents: 1) Arithmetic Review. 2) Basic Properties of Real Numbers. 3) Basic Operations with Real Numbers. 4) Algebraic Expressions and Equations. 5) Solving Linear Equations and Inequalities. 6) Factoring Polynomials. 7) Graphing Linear Equations and Inequalities in One and Two Variables. 8) Rational Expressions. 9) Roots, Radicals, and Square Root Equations. 10) Quadratic Equations. 11) Systems of Linear Equations.

The conversionprocessiscalled reducingafraction. Wecanreduceafractiontolowesttermsby 1.Expressingthenumeratoranddenominatorasaproductofprimenumbers.Findtheprimefactorizationofthenumeratoranddenominator.SeeSectionSection1.3forthistechnique. 2.Dividethenumeratoranddenominatorbyallcommonfactors.Thistechniqueiscommonlycalled cancelling. 1.5.4SampleSetA Reduceeachfractiontolowestterms.

Raisingafractionto highertermsistheprocessofconstructinganequivalentfractionthathashighervaluesinthenumeratoranddenominator.Thehigher,equivalentfractionisconstructedbymultiplyingtheoriginalfractionby1. Noticethat 3 5 and 9 15 areequivalent,thatis 3 5 = 9 15 : Also, Thisobservationhelpsussuggestthefollowingmethodforraisingafractiontohigherterms. RaisingaFractiontoHigherTerms Afractioncanberaisedtohighertermsbymultiplyingboththenumeratoranddenominatorbythesame nonzeronumber. Forexample, 3 4 canberaisedto 24 32 bymultiplyingboththenumeratoranddenominatorby8,thatis, multiplyingby1intheform 8 8 : 3 4 = 3 8 4 8 = 24 32 Howdidweknowtochoose8astheproperfactor?Sincewewishtoconvert4to32bymultiplyingitbysomenumber,weknowthat4mustbeafactorof32.Thismeansthat4dividesinto32.Infact, 32 4=8 : Wedividedtheoriginaldenominatorintothenew,specieddenominatortoobtaintheproper factorforthemultiplication. 1.5.6SampleSetB Determinethemissingnumeratorordenominator.
