By Earl Swokowski, Jeffery A. Cole

The newest version within the hugely revered Swokowski/Cole precalculus sequence keeps the weather that experience made it so well liked by teachers and scholars alike: its exposition is obvious, the time-tested workout units function numerous purposes, its uncluttered format is attractive, and the trouble point of difficulties is acceptable and constant. Mathematically sound, ALGEBRA AND TRIGONOMETRY WITH ANALYTIC GEOMETRY, vintage variation, 12E, successfully prepares scholars for extra classes in arithmetic via its very good, time-tested challenge units.

N n n n This process is called rationalizing a denominator. Some special cases are listed in the following chart. 2 Exponents and Radicals 23 Rationalizing Denominators of Quotients (a > 0) Factor in denominator Multiply numerator and denominator by Resulting factor 2a 2a 2 a 2 a ϭ 2 a2 ϭ a 3 7 2 a 2 a2 ϭ 2 a3 ϭ a 3 2a 3 2 a2 7 2a 3 3 2 a 2 a ϭ 2 a7 ϭ a 7 2a 3 4 3 7 4 7 The next example illustrates this technique.
