The tallest inhabited building in the world is the Sears Tower in Chicago. If the observation tower is 1450 feet above the ground level, how far can a person standing in the observation tower see? Use 3960 miles for the radius of Earth. Example:
a^2+b^2=c^2
4^2+3^2=c^2
16+9=c^2
25= c^2
5=c Pythagorean Theorem: in a right triangle, the square of the lengths of the legs.
a^2+b^2=c^2
Right Triangle Hypotenuse By: Hanleigh Review of Algebra & Geometry Sets: Real numbers or elements inclosed within a pair of braces.
example: {0,1,2,3,4}

Set-builder notation: D={ x | x is a digit}
Example: E={x | x is an even digit}={0,2,4,6,8}

Real Numbers are represented by symbols such as 25,0,1\2,-5/4

Rational Numbers: a number that can be expressed as a quotient a/b of two integers where the integer b can not be 0
Example:3/4,-2/3
terminating decimal
non-terminating with repeating blocks of digits

Irrational Numbers: Real numbers that are not rational
decimals that neither repeat nor terminate
Example: pi, 1.414213... Algebra Review Algebraic Expressions

Variable: a letter used to represent any number from a given set of numbers
Constant: either a fixed number , such as 5 or 1/2, or a letter that represents a fixed number

5x

Example: x+3y and 5xy, if x=3 and y=-1 Distributive Property

~nonstrict inequalities: a<b or a>b 3960 miles a>0 is equivalent to a is positive
a<0 is equivalent to a is negative use parentheses to indicate the number is NOT part of the graph us a bracket or a closed circle to indicate that the number is part of the graph Distance Between Points If P and Q are two points on a real number line with coordinates a and b, respectively, the distance between P and Q, denoted by d(P,Q), is
d(P,Q) = I b-a I 0 1 2 3 4 5 -1 -2 -3 -4 -5 d(P,Q) = I (-5)-4 I = 9 d(P,Q) = I (-2)-4 I = 6 Exponents If a is a real number and n is a positive integer, then the symbol a represents the product of n factors of a n 5 3 exponent base = 5 x 5 x 5 If a = 0 and if n is a positive integer, then we define
a = a if a = 0 -n 1/n Law of Exponents a a = a a /a = a = 1/a (if a = 0) (a ) = a (ab) = a b (a/b) = a /b , if b = 0 m n m+n 5280 SOLUTION: m n m-n n-m From the center of the earth, draw 2 radii one through the sears tower and the other to the farthest point a person can see from the tower. Use the pythagorean theorem.
Since 1 mile=5280 feet, then 1450ft.=1450 miles d^2+(3960)^2=(3960+1450/5280)^2
d=(3960+1450/5280)^2-3960^2 2175.08

the principal square root of zero is zero, since 0 =0. That is 0=0

How many square centimeters of copper is required to make the ornament if the height of the triangle is 6 cm. and the base is 4 cm. The amount of copper required equals the shaded area. This area is the sum of the area of the triangle and the semicircle. the triangle has a height of h=6 and base of b=4. The triangle has d=4 r=2 4 6 A=area of triangle+area of triangle
