2 7 Chpter 8 Roots nd Rdils. Round.86 to the nerest hundredth. If you missed this prolem, review Exmple... Simplify: x x y y y z z z z. If you missed this prolem, review Exmple.. Simplify Expressions with Roots In Foundtions, we riefly looked t squre roots. Rememer tht when rel numer n is multiplied y itself, we write n nd red it n squred. This numer is lled the squre of n, nd n is lled the squre root. For exmple, Squre nd Squre Root of numer is red squred 69 is lled the squre of, sine = 69 is squre root of 69 Squre Squre Root If n = m, then m is the squre of n. If n = m, then n is squre root of m. Notie ( ) = 69 lso, so is lso squre root of 69. Therefore, oth nd re squre roots of 69. So, every positive numer hs two squre roots one positive nd one negtive. Wht if we only wnted the positive squre root of positive numer? We use rdil sign, nd write, m, whih denotes the positive squre root of m. The positive squre root is lso lled the prinipl squre root. We lso use the rdil sign for the squre root of zero. Beuse 0 = 0, root. Squre Root Nottion 0 = 0. Notie tht zero hs only one squre m is red the squre root of m. If n = m, then n = m, for n 0. We know tht every positive numer hs two squre roots nd the rdil sign indites the positive one. We write 69 =. If we wnt to find the negtive squre root of numer, we ple negtive in front of the rdil sign. For exmple, 69 =. EXAMPLE 8. Simplify: 89. Sine =. Sine 7 = 89 nd the negtive is in front of the rdil sign This OpenStx ook is ville for free t

3 Chpter 8 Roots nd Rdils 7 TRY IT : : 8. Simplify: 6. TRY IT : : 8. Simplify: 00. Cn we simplify 9? Is there numer whose squre is 9? ( ) = 9 Any positive numer squred is positive. Any negtive numer squred is positive. There is no rel numer equl to 9. The squre root of negtive numer is not rel numer. EXAMPLE 8. Simplify: There is no rel numer whose squre is 96. The negtive is in front of the rdil is not rel numer. 6 8 TRY IT : : 8. Simplify: TRY IT : : 8. Simplify: 9. So fr we hve only tlked out squres nd squre roots. Let s now extend our work to inlude higher powers nd higher roots. Let s review some voulry first. We write: n n n n We sy: n squred n ued n to the fourth power n to the fi th power The terms squred nd ued ome from the formuls for re of squre nd volume of ue. It will e helpful to hve tle of the powers of the integers from to. See Figure 8.. Figure 8. Notie the signs in the tle. All powers of positive numers re positive, of ourse. But when we hve negtive numer, the even powers re positive nd the odd powers re negtive. We ll opy the row with the powers of to help you see

4 76 Chpter 8 Roots nd Rdils this. We will now extend the squre root definition to higher roots. n th Root of Numer If n =, then is n n th root of. The prinipl n th root of is written n. n is lled the index of the rdil. Just like we use the word ued for, we use the term ue root for We n refer to Figure 8. to help find higher roots. = 6 = 8 ( ) =. 6 = 8 = = Could we hve n even root of negtive numer? We know tht the squre root of negtive numer is not rel numer. The sme is true for ny even root. Even roots of negtive numers re not rel numers. Odd roots of negtive numers re rel numers. Properties of n When n is n even numer nd 0, then n is rel numer. < 0, then n When n is n odd numer, is not rel numer. n is rel numer for ll vlues of. We will pply these properties in the next two exmples. EXAMPLE 8. Simplify: Sine = 6. 8 Sine () = 8. Sine () =. This OpenStx ook is ville for free t

Think, (?) = 6. No rel numer rised to the fourth power is negtive. Sine ( ) =. 6 Not rel numer. TRY IT : : 8.7 Simplify: 7 6. TRY IT : : 8.8 Simplify: Estimte nd Approximte Roots When we see numer with rdil sign, we often don t think out its numeril vlue. While we proly know tht the =, wht is the vlue of or 0? In some situtions quik estimte is meningful nd in others it is onvenient to hve deiml pproximtion. To get numeril estimte of squre root, we look for perfet squre numers losest to the rdind. To find n estimte of, we see is etween perfet squre numers 9 nd 6, loser to 9. Its squre root then will e etween nd, ut loser to. Similrly, to estimte 9, we see 9 is etween perfet ue numers 6 nd. The ue root then will e etween nd.

6 78 Chpter 8 Roots nd Rdils EXAMPLE 8. Estimte eh root etween two onseutive whole numers: 0. Think of the perfet squre numers losest to 0. Mke smll tle of these perfet squres nd their squres roots. Lote 0 etween two onseutive perfet squres. 0 is etween their squre roots. Similrly we lote etween two perfet ue numers. Lote etween two onseutive perfet ues. is etween their ue roots. TRY IT : : 8.9 Estimte eh root etween two onseutive whole numers: 8 9 TRY IT : : 8.0 Estimte eh root etween two onseutive whole numers: 8 There re mthemtil methods to pproximte squre roots, ut nowdys most people use lultor to find squre roots. To find squre root you will use the x key on your lultor. To find ue root, or ny root with higher index, y you will use the x key. When you use these keys, you get n pproximte vlue. It is n pproximtion, urte to the numer of digits shown on your lultor s disply. The symol for n pproximtion is nd it is red pproximtely. Suppose your lultor hs 0 digit disply. You would see tht rounded to two deiml ples is rounded to two deiml ples is 9. This OpenStx ook is ville for free t

Look t wht hppens when we squre them: ( ) = (.) =.076 (.0799) = (.) = 9.98 Their squres re lose to, ut re not extly equl to. The fourth powers re lose to 9, ut not equl to 9. EXAMPLE 8.6 Round to two deiml ples: Use the lultor squre root key..066 Round to two deiml ples.. y Use the lultor x key Round to two deiml ples..66 y Use the lultor x key Round to two deiml ples TRY IT : : 8.

We wnt the prinipl root, so 6 But notie, =.

8 70 Chpter 8 Roots nd Rdils How n we mke sure the fourth root of rised to the fourth power is? We n use the solute vlue. =. So n we sy tht when n is even n =. This gurntees the prinipl root is positive. Simplifying Odd nd Even Roots For ny integer n, when the index n is odd when the index n is even We must use the solute vlue signs when we tke n even root of n expression with vrile in the rdil. EXAMPLE 8.7 n n n n = = Simplify: x n p d y. We use the solute vlue to e sure to get the positive root. n Sine the index n is even, n x =. x This is n odd indexed root so there is no need for n solute vlue sign. n Sine the index n is odd, n n Sine the index n is even n d n Sine the index n is odd, n m =. m p =. p y =. y TRY IT : : 8. Simplify: w m d q. TRY IT : : 8. Simplify: y p z d q. Wht out squre roots of higher powers of vriles? The Power Property of Exponents sys ( m ) n = m n. So if we squre m, the exponent will eome m.

If you missed this prolem, review Exmple.7. Use the Produt Property to Simplify Rdil Expressions We will simplify rdil expressions in wy similr to how we simplified frtions. A frtion is simplified if there re no ommon ftors in the numertor nd denomintor. To simplify frtion, we look for ny ommon ftors in the numertor nd denomintor. A rdil expression, n, is onsidered simplified if it hs no ftors of m n. So, to simplify rdil expression, we look for ny ftors in the rdind tht re powers of the index. Simplified Rdil Expression For rel numers nd m, nd n, n is onsidered simplified i hs no ftors of m n For exmple, is onsidered simplified euse there re no perfet squre ftors in. But is not simplified euse hs perfet squre ftor of. Similrly, perfet ue ftor of 8. is simplified euse there re no perfet ue ftors in. But is not simplified euse hs To simplify rdil expressions, we will lso use some properties of roots. The properties we will use to simplify rdil expressions re similr to the properties of exponents. We know tht () n = n n. The orresponding of Produt n Property of Roots sys tht = n n. Produt Property of n th Roots If n n nd re rel numers, nd n is n integer, then n = n n nd n n n = We use the Produt Property of Roots to remove ll perfet squre ftors from squre root. EXAMPLE 8.

Before you get strted, tke this rediness quiz.. Given the numers, 7, 0., 7,, 8, list the rtionl numers, irrtionl numers, rel numers. If you missed this prolem, review Exmple... Multiply: (x )(x + ). If you missed this prolem, review Exmple.8.. Rtionlize the denomintor:. If you missed this prolem, review Exmple.. Evlute the Squre Root of Negtive Numer Whenever we hve sitution where we hve squre root of negtive numer we sy there is no rel numer tht equls tht squre root. For exmple, to simplify, we re looking for rel numer x so tht x =. Sine ll rel numers squred re positive numers, there is no rel numer tht equls when squred. Mthemtiins hve often expnded their numers systems s needed. They dded 0 to the ounting numers to get the whole numers. When they needed negtive lnes, they dded negtive numers to get the integers. When they needed the ide of prts of whole they dded frtions nd got the rtionl numers. Adding the irrtionl numers llowed numers like. All of these together gve us the rel numers nd so fr in your study of mthemtis, tht hs een suffiient. But now we will expnd the rel numers to inlude the squre roots of negtive numers. We strt y defining the imginry unit i s the numer whose squre is. Imginry Unit The imginry unit i is the numer whose squre is. i = or i = We will use the imginry unit to simplify the squre roots of negtive numers. Squre Root of Negtive Numer If is positive rel numer, then = We will use this definition in the next exmple. Be reful tht it is ler tht the i is not under the rdil. Sometimes you will see this written s = i to emphsize the i is not under the rdil. But the = i is onsidered stndrd form.

Now tht we re fmilir with the imginry numer i, we n expnd the rel numers to inlude imginry numers. The omplex numer system inludes the rel numers nd the imginry numers. A omplex numer is of the form + i, where, re rel numers. We ll the rel prt nd the imginry prt. Complex Numer A omplex numer is of the form + i, where nd re rel numers.

94 86 Chpter 8 Roots nd Rdils + i = i Rel numer 0 + i Imginry numer = i i Pure imginry numer The stndrd form of omplex numer is + i, so this explins why the preferred form is = i when > 0. The digrm helps us visulize the omplex numer system. It is mde up of oth the rel numers nd the imginry numers. Add or Sutrt Complex Numers We re now redy to perform the opertions of ddition, sutrtion, multiplition nd division on the omplex numers just s we did with the rel numers.
