Directions: Be sure to make an electronic copy of your answer before submitting it to Ashworth College for grading. Unless otherwise stated, answer in complete sentences, and be sure to use correct English spelling and grammar. Sources must be cited in APA format. Your response should be a minimum of one (1) single-spaced page to a maximum of two (2) pages in length; refer to the "Assignment Format" page for specific format requirements.

NOTE: Show your work on the problems.

1.Determine whether the equation defines a function with independent variable x. If it does, find the domain. If it does not, find a value of x to which there corresponds more than one value of y.

x|y| = x + 9

This is not a function. When x=3, there are two values of y, -4 and 4

2.Use the graph of the function to estimate:

a.f(2)= 6

b.f(–4)= 0

c.All x such that f(x) = 0

x=-4

3.For the following graph:

a.Find the domain of f.(-∞,∞)

b.Find the range of f.(-∞,4)

c.Find the x-intercepts.(-1,0),(3,0)

d.Find the y-intercept.(0,3)

e.Find the intervals over which f is increasing.(-∞,1)

f.Find the intervals over which f is decreasing.(1,∞)

g.Find the intervals over which f is constant.(1,4)

...Algebra is one of the broad parts of mathematics, together with number theory, geometry and analysis.
For historical reasons, the word "algebra" has several related meanings in mathematics, as a single word or with qualifiers.
• As a single word without article, "algebra" names a broad part of mathematics (see below).
• As a single word with article or in plural, "algebra" denotes a specific mathematical structure. See...

...ALGEBRA
In all three of these problems there is use of all of the terms required: simplify, like terms, coefficient, distribution, and removing parentheses. There is also use with the real number properties of the commutative property of addition and the commutative property of multiplication. In what ways are the properties of real numbers useful for simplifying algebraic expression? The properties are useful for identifying what should go where and with what, to make it...

WHY ARE YOU TAKING THIS COURSE?
All Georgia high school students are required to take four years of mathematics. Taking Accelerated Coordinate Algebra / Analytic Geometry Part A is comparable to taking the typical ninth grade course, Coordinate Algebra AND the first half of the tenth grade course, Analytic Geometry. The reason...

...sense that there are many aspects of Algebra that the majority of people do not use on a daily basis. I think that this fact is what leads people to the false conclusion that Algebra is useless.
To better understand our topic, let’s define what we mean when we say “Algebra”. Webster’s dictionary defines Algebra as “a form of mathematics dealing with symbols and equations.” A guest in the mathematics forum on xpmath.com states that...

...make mathematics, especially the algebra as enjoyable as possible to those freshmen students in high school level and allow them to be productive as a student upon integrating the computer-assisted program in their studies.
Algebra is a branch of mathematics concerning the study of structure, relation, and quantity. Together with geometry, analysis, combinatorics, and number theory, algebra is one of the main branches of mathematics. This only means...
