Study Notes
Linear Equations and Functions
 Cartesian Coordinate System consists of two perpendicular number lines: xaxis (horizontal) and yaxis (vertical).
 Relations: Associations between two quantities forming ordered pairs (inputs vs. outputs).
 Functions: Special type of relation with a unique output for each input; can be tested using the vertical line test.
 Function notation expresses functions concisely, written as f(x) where f represents the function name, and x is the input.
Special Products
 Product of Two Binomials: (ax + b)(cx + d) = acx² + (ad + bc)x + bd; involves multiplying first, outer, inner, and last terms.
 Square of a Binomial: (a ± b)² = a² ± 2ab + b²; square first term, then double the product of the two terms, followed by squaring the last term.
 Difference of Two Squares: (a + b)(a  b) = a²  b²; involves squaring the first term and subtracting the square of the last term.
Factoring
 Factoring Quadratic Trinomials: acx² + (ad + bc)x + bd = (ax + b)(cx + d); involves finding factors of the first and last terms that add up to the middle term.
 Perfect Square Trinomial: a² ± 2ab + b² = (a ± b)²; determined by taking square roots of the first and last terms.
 Difference of Two Squares: a²  b² = (a + b)(a  b); involves square roots of both terms.
The Cartesian Coordinate System
 Origin: Intersection of x and y axes at (0,0).
 Coordinates: Written as ordered pairs (x, y).
 Quadrants: Four regions of the plane:
 Quadrant 1: (+, +)
 Quadrant 2: (, +)
 Quadrant 3: (, )
 Quadrant 4: (+, )
Relations
 Independent Variable: Can change freely; acts as the cause.
 Dependent Variable: Value influenced by the independent variable; represents the effect.
 Domain: Set of all xvalues in a relation.
 Range: Set of all yvalues in a relation.
 Types of Relations:
 OnetoOne: Unique pairing for every element.
 OnetoMany: One element pairs with multiple.
 ManytoOne: Multiple elements pair with one.
Functions
 Functions: Introduced by Leibniz, are relations where every input has one output; all functions are relations, but not vice versa.
 Examples of Functions: { (1,1), (2,8), (3,27) }
 Vertical Line Test: Determines if a relation is a function by checking intersection points.

Special Types of Functions:
 Polynomial Function: Nonnegative integer exponents (e.g., quadratic).
 Constant Function: Same output for various inputs; horizontal graph.
 Linear Function: Straight line, expressed as f(x) = mx + b.
 Absolute Value Function: Outputs nonnegative values, even if input is negative, expressed as f(x) = x.
 Quadratic Function: Highest exponent of 2 indicates a polynomial with a parabolic graph.
