Linear Equation is an equation that can be written in the

form ax + b = 0, where a ≠ 0. It has exactly one solution.

Example 1. Solving a linear equation

Solve the equation 6x-7=2x+ 5

Solution:

Guidelines for solving an Equation Containing

Rational Expressions

2. Find the values of the variable that make the LCD zero.

This are not solutions because they yield at least one zero

denominator when substituted to the given equation.

3. Multiply each term of the equation by the LCD and simplify,

thereby eliminating all the denominators.

4. Solve the equation obtain in guideline 3.

5. The solution of the given equation are the solution found in

guideline 4, with the exclusion found in guideline 2.

Example 4. An equation containing rational expressions

3 5 2

Solve the equation - = .

2𝑥−4 𝑥+3 𝑥−2

Solution:

Guideline 1. Rewriting the denominator 2x-4 as 2(x-2), we see that the lcd

of the three rational expressions is 2(x-2)(x + 3).

Guideline 2. The values of x that make the lcd 2(x-2)(x + 3) zero are 2 and

-3, so these numbers cannot be solution of the equation.

Guideline 3. Multiplying each term of the equation by the lcd and simplifying

gives the following:

3 5 2

2(x-2)(x + 3) - 2(x−2)(x + 3) = 2(x-2)(x + 3)

2𝑥−4 𝑥+3 𝑥−2

3 ( x+3)-10(x-2)= 4(x+3) cancel like factors

3x+9-10x+20=4x+12 multiply factorss

Guideline 4. We solve the last equation obtained in guideline 3.

3x-10x-4x = 12-9-20 subtract 4x,9 and 20

-11x=-17 combine like terms

17

x= divide by -11

Guideline 5. Since is not included among the values (2 and -

11

APPLIED PROBLEMS

Equations are often used to solve applied problems- that is , problems that

involved applications of mathematics to other fields. Because of the unlimited

variety of applied problems, it is difficult to state specific rules for finding

solutions.

Guidelines for Solving Applied Problems

1. If the problem is stated in writing, read it carefully several times and think

about the given facts, together with the unknown quantity that is to be

found.

2. Introduce the letter to denote the unknown quantity

3. If appropriate, draw a picture and label it.

4. List the known facts, together with any relationships that involved the

unknown quantity.

5. After analyzing the list in guideline 4, formulate an equation that describes

precisely what is stated in words.

6. Solved the equation formulated in guideline 5.

7. Check the solutions obtained in guideline 6.

Example 1: Test average

A student in algebra course has test scores of 64 and 78. What

score on the third test will give the student an average of 80?

Solution:

Guideline 1 Read the problem at least one more time.

Guideline 2 The unknown quantity is the score on the third test, so we let x= score on the 3rd test.

Guideline 3 A picture or diagram is unnecessary for this problem.

Guideline 4 Known facts are scores of 64 and 78 on the first two tests. A relationship that involves

64+78+𝑥

x is the average score of 64, 78, and x. Thus, average score = .

3

Guideline 5 Since the average score in guideline 4 is to be 80, we consider the equation

64+78+𝑥

= 80

3

64 + 78 + x = 80 ∙ 3 multiply by 3

142 + x = 240 simplify

x= 98 subtract 142

Guideline 7 Check. If the three test scores are 64, 78, and 98, then the average is

64+78+98 240

= = 80

3 3

Example 2. Calculating a presale price

A clothing store holding a clearance sale advertises that all prices have been

discounted 20%. If a shirt is on sale for $28, what was its presale price?

Solution:

Since the unknown quantity is the presale price, we let x= presale price.

We next note the following facts:

0.20x= discount of 20% on presale price

28= sale price

The sale price is determined as follows:

(presale price)-(discount)= sale price

Translating the last equation into symbols and then solving gives us

x-0.20x=28 formulate the equation

0.80x= 28 subtract 0.20x from 1x

28

x= = 35 divide by 0.80

0.80

Check. If a $35 shirt is discounted 20%, then the discount (in dollars) is

(0.20)(35)=7 and the sale price is 35-7 or $28.

Example 3. Investing money in two stocks

An investments firm has $100,000 to invest for a client and decides to invest it in two stocks, A

and B. The expected annual rate of return, or simple interest, for stock A is 15%, but there is

some risk involved, and the client does not wish to invest more than $50,000 in this stock. The

annual rate of return on the more stable stock B is anticipated to be 10%. Determine whether

there is a way of investing the money so that the annual interest is

(a) $12,000 (b) $13,000

Solution:

The annual interest is given by I=Pr, which come from the simple interest formula I=Prt with t=1. If

we let x denote the amount invested in stock A, then 100,000-x will be invested in stock B. This

leads to the following equalities:

x=amount invested in stock A at 15%

100,000-x=amount invested in stock B at 10%

0.15x=annual interest from stock A

0.10(100,000-x)= annual interest from stock B

Adding the interest from both stocks, we obtain

total annual interest= 0.15x + 0.10 (100,000-x)

Simplifying the right hand side gives us

total annual interest=10,000 + 0.05x. (*)

10,000+0.05x=12,000 from (*)

0.05x=2000 subtract 10,000

2000

x= = 40,000 divide by 0.05

0.05

Thus, $40,000 should be invested in stock A, and the remaining $60,000 should be

invested in stock B. Since the amount invested in stock A is not more than

$50,000, 𝑡ℎ𝑖𝑠 𝑚𝑎𝑛𝑛𝑒𝑟 𝑜𝑓 𝑖𝑛𝑣𝑒𝑠𝑡𝑖𝑛𝑔𝑡ℎ𝑒 𝑚𝑜𝑛𝑒𝑦 𝑚𝑒𝑒𝑡𝑠 𝑡ℎ𝑒 𝑟𝑒𝑞𝑢𝑖𝑟𝑒𝑚𝑒𝑛𝑡𝑠 𝑜𝑓 𝑡ℎ𝑒 𝑐𝑙𝑖𝑒𝑛𝑡.

To check: 40,000(0.15) + 60,000(0.10)=6,000 + 6,000= 12,000.

0,05x=3,000 subtract 10,000

3,000

x= = 60,000. divide by 0.05

0.05

Thus $60,000 should be invested in stock A and the remaining $40,000 in stock B.

Example 4. Mixing Chemicals

A chemical has 10 mL of a solution that contains a 30% concentration of acid. How many mL of

pure acid must be added in order to increase the concentration to 50%?

Solution:

Let x= number of mL of pure acid to be added

Since we express the amount of pure acid in the final solution as either 3 + x or 0.5 (10 + x), we

obtain the equation 3+x= 0.50(10+x)

We now solve for x

3+x=5+0.5x multiply factors

0.5x=2 subtract 0.5x and 3

2

X= =4 divide by 0.5

0.5

Check: If 4 mL of acid is added to the original solution, then the new solution contains 14mL, 7 mL

of which is pure acid.

Example 5. Replacing antifreeze

A radiator contains 8 quarts of a mixture of water and antifreeze. If 40% of the mixture is

antifreeze, how much of the mixture should be drained and replaced by pure antifreeze so that the

resultant mixture will contain 60% antifreeze?

Solution:

Let x= number of qt of mixture to be drained.

Since the number of quarts of pure antifreeze in the final mixture can be expressed as either

0.40(8-x) + x = 4.8.

We now solve for x:

3.2-0.4x+x=4.8 multiply factors

0.6 x = 1.6 combine x terms and subtract 3.2

1.6 16 8

x=0.6= =3 divide by 0.6

6

8

Thus, quarts should be drained from the original mixture.

3

Comparing times traveled by cars

Two cities are connected by means of a highway. A car leaves city B at 1:00 PM

and travel at a constant rate of 40 mi/hr toward city C. Thirty minutes later,

another car leaves B and travel towards C at a constant rate of 55 mi/hr. If the

lengths of the car are disregarded, at white time will the second car reach the

first car?

Solution:

Let t denote the number of hours after 1:00PM traveled by the first car. Since

1

the second car leaves B at 1:30 PM, it has traveled 2 hours less than the first.

This leads to the following table

First Car 40 t 40t

Second Car 55 1

t-2

1

55(t-2)

We now solve:

55

55t- =40t multiply factors

2

55 55

15t= 2 subtract 40t and add 2

55 11

t= = divide by 15

30 6

5

Thus, t is 1 hours or , equivalently, 1 hour 50 minutes after 1:00 PM.

6

Consequently, the second car reaches the first car at 2:50 PM.

Example 7 Time required to do a job

Two pumps are available for filling a gasoline storage tank. Pump A, used alone,

can fill the tank in 3 hours, and pump B, used alone, can fill it in 4 hours. If both

pumps are used simultaneously, how long will it take to fill the tank?

Solution:

Let t denote the number of hours needed for A and B to fill the tank if used

simultaneously.

1

= part of the tank filled by A in 1 hr

1 1 1 7 12

we obtain 3 + = 𝑜𝑟 = 𝑜𝑟 𝑡=

4 𝑡 12 7

Thus, if pumps A and B are used simultaneously, the tank will be filled in 17

hours, or approximately 1hour 43 minutes.

4x = x2

Example 1. Solving an equation by

Solve the equation 3x2 = 10-x.

Solution: Using method of factoring

3x2 = 10-x given

3x2 + x – 10 = 0 add x -10

(3x-5) ( x-2)=0 factor

3x-5= 0, x+2=0 zero factor theorem

Example 2. Solving an equation by

factoring

Solve the equation x2 + 16 = 8x.

Solution: Using method of factoring or factor method

x2 + 16 = 8x given

x2 – 8x + 16 = 0 subtract 8x

(x-4) ( x-4)=0 factor

x-4= 0, x-4=0 zero factor theorem

x= 4, x= 4 solve for x

Thus, the given quadratic equation has one solution, 4. We call 4 a double

root or root of multiplicity of 2 of the equation x2 + 16 = 8x.

Example 3. Solving equation in the form

x2=d

Solve the equations (a) x2 = 5 (b) (x+3)2 = 5

Solution:

(a) x2 = 5 given

x=± 5 take the square root

Thus, the solution are 5 𝑎𝑛𝑑 − 5

(b) x+3)2 = 5 given

x+3 = ±√5 take the square root

x= −3 ± √5 subtract 3

Thus the solution are -3+ 5 𝑎𝑛𝑑 − 3 − 5

Completing the Square

𝑘 2

To complete the square for x2 + kx or x2 – kx, add ; that is , add the square

2

of the half of the coefficient of x.

(a) The square of the half the coefficient of x is − 2 = 4 . Thus, d = 4 and

9 3 2

x2-3x + 4 = 𝑥 − 2

Hence c=8 or -8, and since d=2c, d= 16 or -16. So we could have

x2+16x+64= (x+8)2 or x2-16x+64= (x-8)2
