The properties of exponents will help you understand how to work with scientific notation. 5.1 Use Properties of Exponents What is an exponent and what does it mean? A superscript on a number. It tells the number of times the number is multiplied by itself. Example; x3 = x x x

5.4 Factor and Solve Polynomial Equations A manufacturer of shipping cartons who needs to make cartons for a specific use often has to use special relationships between the length, width, height, and volume to find the exact dimensions of the carton. The dimensions can usually be found by writing and solving a

polynomial equation. This lesson looks at how factoring can be used to solve such equations. 5.4 Factor and Solve Polynomial Equations How to Factor 1. Greatest Common Factor Comes from the distributive property If the same number or variable is in each of the terms, you can bring the number to the front times everything that is left. 3x2y + 6xy 9xy2 =

5.5 Apply the Remainder and Factor Theorems Using the factor theorem, you can find the factors (and zeros) of polynomials Simply use synthetic division using your first zero (you get these off of problem or off of the graph where they cross the x-axis) The polynomial answer is one degree less and is called the depressed polynomial. Divide the depressed polynomial by the next zero and get the next depressed

polynomial. Continue doing this until you get to a quadratic which you can factor or use the quadratic formula to solve. 5.5 Apply the Remainder and Factor Theorems Show that x 2 is a factor of x3 + 7x2 + 2x 40. Then find the remaining factors. 366 #3-33 odd, 41, 43
