NOTES 1-5
ROOTS AND IRRATIONAL NUMBERS

Square Root: a number multiplied by itself to form
a product

    = “radical sign”, used to represent square roots

   49 = 7 or -7


**Positive numbers have two square roots
                                     Lesson 1-5 #2
Principal Square Root:    Always Positive
   36 =            25 =




Negative Square Root: –     Always Negative

  – 81 =          – 121 =
                                         Lesson 1-5 #3
Squaring and taking the square root are opposite
operations… they undo each other.




Perfect Squares: a number whose positive square
root is a whole number
      1     4     9     16    25    36   49
      1²    2²    3²    4²    5²    6²   7²
                                      Lesson 1-5 #4
Index: tells you how many times to multiply the root




          What # do you multiply by itself 3 times
          to get 8?




          What # do you multiply by itself 4 times
          to get 16?
                  Lesson 1-5 #5
Find each root.
                                        Lesson 1-5 #6
Irrational Numbers: any number that cannot be
written as a fraction, “wacky numbers”
     Non-terminating non-repeating decimals (pi)
     Irrational square roots ( )




REAL NUMBERS include all rational and irrational #s.
(All numbers you have learned about so far…)
                                         Lesson 1-5 #7

Rational Numbers: any number that can be written
as a fraction, includes all numbers that “make sense”

  Natural Numbers: counting numbers
       {1, 2, 3, 4 . . . }
  Whole Numbers: counting numbers plus 0
       {0, 1, 2, 3, 4 . . .}
  Integers: Whole numbers and their opposites
        { . . . -3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3 . . . }

Also fractions and decimals (terminating and repeating)
                                       Lesson 1-5 #8




Note the symbols for the sets of numbers…
R: real #s      Q: rational #s
Z: integers     W: whole #s      N: natural #s
                                        Lesson 1-5 #9

                                           Lesson 1-6 #1
 NOTES 1-6
 PROPERTIES OF REAL NUMBERS
Properties of Addition and Multiplication
ComMUtative Property – (Mixed Up)
     You can add or multiply real #s in any order.
       a+b=b+a                     ab = ba



AsSOciative Property – (Same Order)
   Changing the grouping does not change the sum
 (a + b) + c = a + (b + c)       (ab)c = a(bc)
                                       Lesson 1-6 #2
Name the property that is illustrated in each
equation.
  A. 7(mn) = (7m)n




  B. (a + 3) + b = a + (3 + b)




  C. x + (y + z) = x + (z + y)
                                          Lesson 1-6 #3
Distributive Property: also works with subtraction
because subtracting is “adding the opposite”
  a(b + c) = ab + ac              a(b – c) = ab – ac




Write and simplify each product using the Distributive
Property:       5(71)                  4(38)
                                      Lesson 1-6 #4
Counterexample - example that disproves a
statement, or shows that it is false.

     Statement             Counterexample

 No month has fewer than   February has fewer than 30
 30 days.                  days, so the statement is
                           false.

 Every integer that is     18 is divisible by 2 but not
 divisible by 2 is also    by 4, so the statement is
 divisible by 4.           false.
                                        Lesson 1-6 #5
Closure Property: Real numbers are “closed” if the
result of the operation on any two numbers in the set
is also in the set

The set of even numbers is closed under addition.
     4 + 6 = 10
                   (When you add any two even #s,
                      the result must be even)
       Even #s
                                          Lesson 1-6 #6
 Find a counterexample to show that the statement is
 false.

 The prime numbers are closed under addition.
   Find two prime #s such that their sum is not prime.


Since ___ is not a prime number, the statement is _____.
                                          Lesson 1-6 #7
 Find a counterexample to show that the statement is
 false.
The set of odd numbers is closed under subtraction.
   Find two odd #s such that the difference is not odd.




___ and ___ are odd numbers, but __________, which is
   not an odd number, so the statement is ________.
                                                 Lesson 1-7 #1
NOTES 1-7
SIMPLIFYING EXPRESSIONS

Order of Operations tells you which operation to
perform first in an expression.

                Order of Operations

                                       Lesson 1-7 #4
Terms: the parts that are added or subtracted
                 Terms


          4x – 3x + 2           Constant:
                                numerical term
         Like Terms    Constant with no variable

Like Terms: terms that have the same variables and
exponents
                                         Lesson 1-7 #5
Coefficient: a number multiplied by a variable
     Coefficients


    1x2 + 3x
Combining Like Terms –
• Add or subtract the coefficients
• Keep the variables and exponents the same


    Alphabetical order with constants last!
