Try to use only parentheses when performing multiplication as ,, may be confused with the incorrect symbol or meaning.

Log Natural Notation

*It is unlikely that the notation involving log will be used throughout the course; you may see it in
the beginning of the course, as a review of some sort but that should be about all youll see. The ln
notation will be the standard as it is easier to manipulate.

Collect like terms

Note:

The log operations will work the same with functions

i. e.

ln = ln + ln

ln = ln ln

*Example 2

Expand the following

There will be a point in calculus where one is asked to take the derivative of a function of this nature, just remember to rewrite in this fashion.

Note

In some online homework programs or classes ln ! may be considered to be equal to ln(),
however this is not correct, in general

10

www.allitebooks.com

(because)

ln ! = ln ln ! = ln ! = ln! ()

e. g.

ln(4) = ln(2! ) = 2 ln(2)

and

! !
ln 2 = ln = ln! (2) = ln ln

If your teacher assigns something of this nature be sure to ask what he or she would prefer, as the universal standard for notation may be
changed on a class-to-class basis per the instructors discretion.

*Factoring

*Factoring will be a huge part of Calculus! Make sure youre a pro before you start the course but
mainly focus on polynomials of degree 4 or less and factoring functions.

Here are some common formulas but they are not very useful unless you memorize them so you
should focus more on applying them. Rather than showing basic examples we will focus on
application going forward.

! + ! = ! 1 + !!! = ! !!! + 1

! ! = +

! + 2 + ! = + !

! + + + = ( + )( + )

! + 3 ! + 3! + ! = + !

! 3 ! + 3! ! = !

! + ! = ( + )( ! + ! )

! ! = ! + + !

! ! = ! !

*Example 1:

*Common mistake students make when solving for x:

11
! = 0 ! = = 1

The solution of = 0 was lost, thus:

!
=0 1 = 0 = 0 = 1

*Example 2:

*Notice that you should always solve by factoring in order to prevent losing a solution. In other words,
always leave everything on one side of the equation.

1 1
=0 = ! = 1 = 1

Not that the answer is incorrect but something very important was left out and that was to identify
that 0. In calculus there is something called a critical number and this critical number is often
what makes the derivative undefined. From now on, solve an equation like the previous one, in the
following fashion.

!
1 1
=0 =0 = 1 & 0

!
The reason for this is because the original question would have been asking for = !, find the

## values that make = 0 and or = .

Solving for x (numerically)

2 ! + 5 = 0

You wouldnt need to complete the square to solve for x for this equation because you can simply
factor x i.e.

2 + 5 = 0

5
= 0 or 5 2 = 0 =
2

This gives the same result as the previous formula

Solving for x (numerically)

As should be noticeable, this is in fact, the quadratic formula. See section covering the quadratic
formula for numerical examples.

Example 3: (Real Application)

Suppose you are given a problem that looks like

13
1
=
5 ! 3 + 4

Dont worry about what this will be used for at the moment, just take a second to recognize that
something like this can be put into this form

1
=
! !

This resembles the Pythagorean theorem and it can actually be considered as referencing a right
triangle, which is why this is important for calculus. There will be examples in the calculus portion of
this book.

Let us complete the square under the radical

Extract the function and follow the formula for completing the square but keep it equal to some
function i.e.

= 5 ! 3 + 4

3 3 9 9
= 5 ! + 4 = 5 ! + + 4
5 5 100 100

3 ! 9 3 ! 9
= 5 5 +4 = 5 +4
10 100 10 20

3 ! 4 20 9 3 ! 71
= 5 + = 5 +
10 20 10 20

Now that we have completed the square we can put it back into:

1 1 1 1
= = = =
5 ! 3 + 4 3 ! 71 !
5 10 + 20 3 ! 71
5 10 + 20

Making

In mathematics, is generally reserved to be a function. The reason being is it is just easier to write

Graphing a Line

From the form = + you can easily graph a line by identifying two points and then
connecting them.

! !
The equation will more generally appear as = ! + where = !, is the rise and
is the run ( always goes up and goes either left or right.)

The first point is ! 0,

The second point is ! (, + )

Plot these two points and connect a line through them.

18
Example

Using the previous method

2 2
= +3 = + 3
3 3

1 Point ! 0,3
st

2 Point ! 3, 3 + 2 = ! (3, 5)
nd

Plot these two points and connect them with an infinite line.

Note: When something has a zero in the subscript i.e. ! it is called initial when accompanied with an e.g. " and initial
is and ! in physics it is generally called naught i.e. ! is x naught. It is common to see ! and ! or ! and ! there are
reasons for each case but it is mostly personal preference.

*Domain Restrictions

!

Natural Log

20
*Example

Find the domain:

! !
2 3
= + ln
! 9

First Factor (if possible.)

+ 1 3
= ! + ln
+3 3

Identify that you can eliminate 3 but also remember that 3 because it would make the
original function undefined.

Next, identify that 3 either because that would make the function undefined; in this case a
denominator of 0.

! is defined for all numbers so we can ignore this.

ln is only defined for values not equaling zero, remember that the domain restriction for the
logarithmic function is that the function being operated on must be greater than zero, in this case it is
always positive so only is undefined for = 0

Inverse Functions

= = !! = !!

The domain of is the range of !!

The range of is the domain of !!

For a non-trigonometry upper division mathematics course you will not be required to know or apply
very complicated inverse situations, if any at all.

Notice that the graphs are symmetric about the line =

There is a lot more to inverse functions and certain situations such as bounded graphs but for a non-
trigonometry calculus course, the previous example is about as difficult as it should get. If you need a
more intense understanding, visit JJtheTutor.com

Asymptotes, Holes and Graphs

An asymptote occurs where the function is getting infinitely close to a line on the graph but never
touches the line. Horizontal asymptotes may cross the line from time-to-time; it is the end behavior we
are concerned with.

There are three types of asymptotes: Horizontal, Vertical and Oblique.

Oblique asymptotes, will most likely, not be used in your calculus course but vertical and horizontal
will be used frequently in order to graph functions.

Hole in a Graph

A hole in a graph occurs when there is a function that can have a portion that has terms that cancel out
and the solution to that term makes the graph undefined e.g.

22
! 4 2 +2 0
= = =+2 2 2 =
2 2 0

This is called removable discontinuity and at 2,4 there is a hole in the graph.

Case for Calculus

Whenever I ask a student where vertical asymptotes occur, they respond, when the denominator
equals zero. As you can see that is only in certain situations, reference the hole in graph scenario or
look at this example.

= ln 1

We will save the process for calculus but the graph is approaching negative infinity as x goes to zero
i.e.

ln 1

Therefore, there is a vertical asymptote when = 1

General Case for Vertical Asymptotes

In general

23

= , : = = &

Do not rely on determining vertical asymptotes by this case. This is the general situation that you see
in Precalculus courses. A vertical asymptote occurs at the value of that the graph gets as close as
possible to but never touches i.e. where the graph is undefined and . Let us look at the general
case first and then the Calculus case.

The Oblique or Slant Asymptote

An oblique or slant asymptote is an asymptote that is represented by and equation of a line found
from doing long division.

=
! 2 1

From

= = + : =

! + ! 4 + 1 3 + 4
= +3 + ! , : = + 3
! 2 1 2 1

From this graph and the other graphs it can be seen that the graph can cross a horizontal or an
oblique asymptote but never a vertical asymptote.

The Three General Cases for Horizontal Asymptotes

Since there are so many conditions and situations for asymptotes and the methods learned in algebra are
so minimal to what is used in calculus, we will come back to this later.

Common Graphs

The techniques of graphing in Calculus are superior and once learned, most techniques from Algebra
will be disregarded. The following basic graphs are good to memorize but you will use them so often
in Calculus that they will become instinctive.
