## Algebra I SOL Topics and Formulas

### Expressions

Combine like terms (same variables with same exponents)

### Output

= y (output)

X= input (replace every x in the equation with the number in ( )

Plug in value for x

f(7) = 3x – 5 y= 3(7) – 5

y=16

### Equations, Inequalities

In calculator

Type in the equation exactly how you see it ( include ( ) if needed) Hit exe TWICE!!

Inequalities:

Use the same steps as solving equations.

### Function, Patterns

Function: x does not repeat (domain is all different numbers) Graphs use vertical line test (can only cross at one point)

EX1: {(3, -4), (3, 5), (4, 6)} EX2: {(7,1), (8,1), (9,1)} EX3 EX4 not a function – the x’s repeat function

EX5: EX6:

Functions Not a Function

– Not a function D:{3,5}

R: {4, 10}

Not a function Dividing by a

negative…. flip the sign!

function not a function – use the vertical line test not a function – use the vertical line test D = { all real numbers}

R = { all real numbers greater than 0}

### Linear Equations, X, Y, Intercepts

y=mx+b m=slope b=y-intercept

Ax + By = C standard form

Horizontal line (HOY) slope = 0 equation starts with y Ex. y=4

Vertical line (VUX) slope = undefined equations starts with x Ex. x=4

To fine the x and y intercept from standard form: Ax + By = C 3x-4y=12

x-intercept y-intercept

Cover up the y value Cover up the x value

Solve for x Solve for y

### Slope

Positive Negative Zero Undefined

### Write Linear Equations

Y=mx+b slope intercept (where it crosses the y axis)

(m is your slope ( ) , b is the y-intercept) Ax+By=C Standard Form

-A, B, and C cannot be fractions -A cannot be negative

- GCF has to be 1

b (y-intercept) Writing an equation of a line from a graph:

### 3.

In Calculator

### Systems of Equations: 2 equations, 2 variables, 2 answers

If the 2 lines intersect the solution is (x,y)

*you only see two lines touch and make an X*

Slope (m) are different

Y-int. (b) are different –10–9–8–7–6–5–4–3–2–1 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10x

(4)

If they do not cross then they are parallel, no solution *you only see two lines that do NOT touch*

Slope (m) are the same Y-int. (b) are different

If they are the same line, infinitely many solutions. *you only see one line*

Slope (m) are the same Y-int (b) are the same

On Calculator:

Set each formula in standard form . Set Each formula in slope intercept form y=mx+b

EQUA Graph

F1: Simultaneous Type in both equations

F1: 2 unknowns (x and y) F6: Draw

Type in A, B, and C for each equation F5: ISCT (they intercept, 1 solution (x,y))

F1: Solve You see 2 lines DO NOT touch, no solution

You only see ONE line, infinitely many

**If you get MA ERROR you must graph your lines, your answer will be Infinitely many or No Solution.

### c.

Take out the GCF of the 1st ( )

### d.

Take out the GCF of the 2nd ( ) *** you MUST make the ( ) match the first one!!!

** Notice that our ( ) match!!

e. Bring the GCF from step C and D into one set of ( ) and bring one of the matching ones down

f. If you have a GCF in step a bring that out in front.

3. When you have 3 terms. In Calculator:

a. Take out the GCF

b. Set the equation equal to zero c. Menu

d. EQUA

e. F2 Polynomial

f. F1: 2nd degree (highest exponent after the GCF)

g. Type in the values for A, B, and C (if there is no A, B, or C in your equation type in 0) h. F1: Solve

These are your roots, solutions, zeros to get the factors: place in (x___) with the opposite value.

The factors will be (x+1)(x-4)

The factors will be (4x+3)(x-2)

### ***Remember you can check all your work by distributing or doing the box method.

To turn a root into a factor: Take the opposite sign and put in (x __) after x

### Statistics

Mean- averages (add up all the data and then divide by # of objects) Mode- Most

Median- middle # put in order smallest to biggest Range- subtract the lowest value from the highest value

Standard Deviation, Variance, and Z-score

o Calculator Instructions:

F4 Del A (you may need to hit F6 to see Del A on calc) Type in all data into L1

F6 if you don’t see CALC F2 CALC

F1 1 VAR

σx standard deviation x̅ is the mean (μ)

n is the total number of terms

Variance= (Standard Deviation)2

(std.dev × std.dev)

Z-Score

o A positive z-score: above the mean o A negative z-score: below the mean o A z-score of zero: at the mean

### Formula:

Plug in the vaules you have and solve for the unknow

### Rule

In a normal distribution with mean and standard deviation : 68% of the data fall within 1 of the mean

95% of the data fall within 2 of the mean 99.7% of the data fall within 3 of the mean
