## Math 101 Homework

INSTRUCTIONS: Read the references found on the Background Info page. Study the examples there, and the ones given below. Work out the problems, showing all the computational steps. This is particularly important for those problems where the answer is given. On those problems, the correct procedure is the only thing that counts toward the assignment grade.

SOLVING EQUATIONS WITH RADICALS:

Examples: Solve for x. Check by substituting your value for x into the original expression.

Problems:

Solve for x, unless otherwise indicated.

References:

Example:

You are given two polynomials. (Remember that monomials such as 2x and binomials such as 2x+1 are special cases of polynomials). For each problem, calculate the sum, difference and product of the two polynomials.

Problems 16 through 25: Calculate the sum, difference and product of the two polynomials.
