# MAT 1316.01, Business Math II (T/Th 9:30 Class), Spring 2014

## Advice because I love you like you are my own:

```You MUST be able to multiply and factor polynomials to succeed
in this class! You must also be proficient with properties of exponents.
If any of the problems on Factoring, or Simplifying give you trouble,
then you need to spend some time right away brushing up
your basic algebra skills. You can always use the sections recommended in the
text for review. Here are some websites with practice problems. You might try these
as well. Keep reviewing until you can multiply, factor and simplify the polynomials
given in the Chapter Warm-up and in the first assignment from section 9.1.

Algebra Practice Material:

Practice Problems on factoring and multiplying polynomials

A good review, examples, and test problems on factoring

Multiplying Binomials with the FOIL method
Multiplying Other Polynomials
Factoring a difference of two squares
Factoring Polynomials One
Factoring Polynomials Two
Factoring Polynomials Three
Factoring Polynomials Four
Factoring Polynomials by Grouping

Good Problems for practice from our text:
On Multiplying, Adding and Subtracting Polynomials:
Section 0.5, problems 13-65 odd; Chapter 0 Review, pg 52, problems 45-61

On Factoring and Simplifying Polynomials:
Section 0.6, problems 1-57 odd; Section 0.7 1-21 odd; Chapter 0 Review, pg 52, problems 63-73,77

On Properties of Exponents:
Section 0.3, problems 1-55 odd; Section 0.4 11-31 odd; Chapter 0 Review, pg 52, problems 21-31
----------------------------------------------------------------
Good links to a site that explains the concepts and works examples:

On Integer Exponents and Properties
On Rational Exponents and Properties
On Adding, Subtracting and Multiplying Polynomials
On Factoring Polynomials
On Simplifying Rational Expressions

these over the weekend, after Wednesday's quiz. These problems tend to
confuse people with the 11.3 problems. The 11.3 and 11.2 problems
will be on Wednesday's quiz. These 11.4 problems will not.

Revised Review Sheet for the Final Exam
My Final Exam Schedule (Spring 2014)

1) What if my system of equations from setting my first-order partials equal to zero
has one (or both) of the equations a quadratic equation (like problem 15 on 14.4)?
Example:  zx = x2 - x - y - 6 and zy = 2x - y - 2. How do I solve this?
Answer: Solve one of the equations for either x or y. Substitue this solution into the other equation.
Hint see Example 3 on page 898. Also see this link

Note: On all emails for this course, start the subject line out with
MAT1316, followed by whatever else is appropriate. Emails without this
subject line formatting may not be accepted!

The final exam is from 3:15 - 5:15 pm on Saturday, April 26th in this room.
Bring your calculator (NOT a phone, ipad, android, or other internet capable device)
