## Study Notes

### Linear Functions

- Linear functions have a constant rate of change, yielding straight-line graphs.
- Key equations:
- Slope-intercept form: (y = mx + b) (m = slope, b = y-intercept)
- Point-slope form: ((y - y_1) = m(x - x_1))
- Standard form: (Ax + By = C)
- Vertical line: (x = a)
- Horizontal line: (y = b)

- Slope calculation: (\text{slope} = \frac{\Delta y}{\Delta x})

### Absolute Value Functions

- Absolute value functions yield V-shaped graphs and measure distance from zero.
- Vertex form: (y = a|x - h| + k) (h, k is the vertex)

### Quadratic Functions

- Quadratic functions create U-shaped graphs, known as parabolas.
- Standard form: (y = ax^2 + bx + c)
- Factored form: (y = a(x - r_1)(x - r_2)) where (r_1) and (r_2) are roots.
- Vertex form: (y = a(x - h)^2 + k) (h, k is the vertex)

### Exponential Functions

- Exponential functions display a J-shaped curve on graphs.
- General equation: (y = a(b)^{x - h} + k) (b = constant ratio, h represents horizontal shift, k represents vertical shift)

### Piecewise Functions

- Evaluate values of piecewise functions by examining defined intervals.
- Key elements include determining domain (all possible x-values) and range (all possible y-values).

### Polynomials

- Area of a rectangle: ( \text{Area} = \text{Length} \times \text{Width} )
- Perimeter is the summation of all sides.
- Operations on polynomials must result in expressions in standard form.

### Polynomial Operations

- To simplify expressions, ensure polynomials are in standard form after performing operations.
- Factoring out the greatest common factor is critical for simplifying polynomial expressions.

### Classification of Polynomials

- Monomial: a single term (e.g., (5x^5))
- Binomial: two terms (e.g., (3x + 2))
- Trinomial: three terms (e.g., (x^2 + 3x + 4))
- Highest degree indicates polynomial classification (e.g., cubic, quadratic, linear).
