Math 116 - Chapter 2 Study Guide

  1. Solve the equation if possible. Show work. Look at problems 2.1.37 - 2.1.53. Two parts.
  2. Solve the quadratic equation by factoring. Look at problems 2.4.5 - 2.4.11.
  3. Solve the quadratic equation by extraction of roots. Look at problems 2.4.13 - 2.4.15.
  4. Find all solutions of the equation. Use any algebraic method, but show work. Look at problems 2.4.53 - 2.4.69, 2.4.75-2.4.85. Four parts.
  5. Perform the indicated operation and simplify. Look at problems 2.3.31 - 2.3.39, 2.3.51 - 2.3.63, 2.3.67 - 2.3.73. Three parts.
  6. Solve the quadratic equation by completing the square. Look at problems 2.4.17 - 2.4.19.
  7. Solve the quadratic equation by using the quadratic formula. Look at problems 2.4.33 - 2.4.41.
  8. Solve the inequality and sketch on the real number line. Write your answers in interval notation. Look at problems 2.5.31 - 2.5.39, 2.5.51 - 2.5.57, 2.5.63 - 2.5.65. Three parts.
  9. Use a graphing utility to approximate any solutions of the equation. Sketch an appropriate graph. Remember that you're only looking for x-values here since the y-values will be zero. Look at problems 2.2.33-2.2.43.
  10. Use a graphing utility to approximate any points of intersection of the graphs of the equations. You need both the x-coordinate and the y-coordinate on this problem. Look at problems 2.2.47-2.2.59.
