Math 116 - Final Exam Study Guide

  1. Six graphs from the eight basic graphs on the front cover of the text, are shown. For each graph, identify the name of the basic graph and the equation of the graph shown.
  2. Find the inverse of a function.
  3. Solve a equation for x.
  4. Simplify an expression involving i.
  5. Find a function with the indicated zeros. Pay special attention to those involving radical or complex roots.
  6. Use synthetic division to divide a polynomial by a binomial.
  7. Given a polynomial function, give the total number of real or complex zeros, the maximum number of positive and negative roots, the right and left hand behavior of the graph, where the graph crosses and touches the x-axis, the y-intercept, the domain, the form of any possible rational zeros, and all real and complex roots.
  8. Given the sketch of a polynomial function, write a function (in factored form) whose graph could be that shown.
  9. Given a rational function, give the domain, the behavior at a point where there is a common factor between the numerator and denominator, the behavior at each vertical asymptote and x-intercept, and the horizontal asymptote.
  10. Given the sketch of a rational function, write a function (in factored form) whose graph could be that shown.
  11. Combine several logarithms into a single logarithm.
  12. Expand a single logarithm into the sum, difference, and constant multiples of several logarithms.
  13. Solve the logarithmic equation.
  14. Find the partial fraction decomposition for the expression.
  15. Sketch the solution to the system of equalities.
  16. Solve a linear programming problem.
  17. Solve a system of linear equations by graphing.
  18. Solve a system of linear equations by substitution.
  19. Solve a system of linear equations by addition or elimination.
  20. Solve a system of linear equations by Gauss Jordan Elimination using matrices.
  21. Solve a system of linear equations by Cramer's Rule.
  22. Solve a system of linear equations by Matrix Algebra. You can use the calculator, but write the matrices entered into the calculator and the expression evaluated with the calculator.
  23. Setup and solve a system of linear equations which will find the equation of a parabola passing through the given points. I suggest using matrix inverses to find the solution.
  24. Multiply two matrices.
  25. Find the inverse of a matrix.
  26. Find the determinant of a 3×3 matrix. The vertical lines do not mean take the absolute value.
  27. Solve a matrix equation. Watch out for commutativity and division.
  28. Write the solution to a system of linear equations from a matrix in row echelon form.
  29. Write the solution to a system of linear equations from a matrix in reduced row echelon form.
  30. Write the first five terms of the sequence with the given general term.
  31. Find the sum of an arithmetic series.
  32. Simplify the ratio of the factorials.
  33. Expand a binomial using the binomial expansion theorem.
  34. Identify the conic section or degenerate case. Nine parts.
  35. Eliminate the parameter from a set of parametric equations.
  36. Sketch the graph of the conic section that is already in standard form.
  37. Complete the square and place the conic section into standard form. Then sketch the graph.
  38. Write whether or not the simplification is valid. Seventeen parts. Capital letters represent matrices and lower case letters represent real numbers. Several of these deal with inverses (when do two things inverse out?).
