Example text

This observation yields the result x Ն 5 or x Յ Ϫ5 (Figure 5b). EXAMPLE 14 Solve the inequality 0 2x Ϫ 3 0 Յ 1. The inequality 0 2x Ϫ 3 0 Յ 1 is equivalent to the inequalities Ϫ1 Յ 2x Ϫ 3 Յ 1 (see Example 13). Thus, 2 Յ 2x Յ 4 and 1 Յ x Յ 2. The solution is therefore given by the set of all x in the interval [1, 2] (Figure 6). 2 Exercises In Exercises 1–6, simplify the expression. x ϩxϪ2 x2 Ϫ 4 2 1. 2a Ϫ 3ab Ϫ 9b 2ab2 ϩ 3b3 2 2. 12t 2 ϩ 12t ϩ 3 3. ᎏ 4t 2 Ϫ 1 2 x3 ϩ 2x2 Ϫ 3x 4. Ϫ2x2 Ϫ x ϩ 3 5. 14x Ϫ 1 2 13 2 Ϫ 13x ϩ 1 2 14 2 6.

If a Ͻ b and c Ͻ 0, then ac Ͼ bc. 2 Ͻ 3 and 3 Ͻ 8, so 2 Ͻ 8. Ϫ5 Ͻ Ϫ3, so Ϫ5 ϩ 2 Ͻ Ϫ3 ϩ 2; that is, Ϫ3 Ͻ Ϫ1. Ϫ5 Ͻ Ϫ3, and since 2 Ͼ 0, we have (Ϫ5)(2) Ͻ (Ϫ3)(2); that is, Ϫ10 Ͻ Ϫ6. Ϫ2 Ͻ 4, and since Ϫ3 Ͻ 0, we have (Ϫ2)(Ϫ3) Ͼ (4)(Ϫ3); that is, 6 Ͼ Ϫ12. Similar properties hold if each inequality sign, Ͻ, between a and b and between b and c is replaced by Ն, Ͼ, or Յ. Note that Property 4 says that an inequality sign is reversed if the inequality is multiplied by a negative number. A real number is a solution of an inequality involving a variable if a true statement is obtained when the variable is replaced by that number.

Using the quadratic formula, we find Ϫ5 Ϯ 252 Ϫ 412 2 1Ϫ12 2 Ϫb Ϯ 2b 2 Ϫ 4ac ϭ 2a 212 2 Ϫ5 Ϯ 1121 Ϫ5 Ϯ 11 ϭ ϭ 4 4 3 ϭ Ϫ4 or 2 xϭ This equation can also be solved by factoring. Thus, 2x 2 ϩ 5x Ϫ 12 ϭ (2x Ϫ 3)(x ϩ 4) ϭ 0 from which we see that the desired roots are x ϭ 32 or x ϭ Ϫ4, as obtained earlier. *In this book, we are interested only in the real roots of an equation. 1 PRECALCULUS REVIEW I 13 b. We first rewrite the given equation in the standard form x 2 ϩ 3x Ϫ 8 ϭ 0, from which we see that a ϭ 1, b ϭ 3, and c ϭ Ϫ8.
