**Henry**, Saturday, June 4, 2011 at 8:24pm1. (12,8), (4,2).

d^2 = (4-12)^2 + (2-8)^2 = 100,

d = 10.

2. (3,1), (7,-5).

Xo = (3+7) / 2 = 5.

Yo = (1-5) / 2 = -2.

M((Xo,Yo),

M(5,-2).

3. 4Y = X^2 + 4.

Divide both sides by 4:

Y = (1/4)X^2 + 1,

h = Xv = -b/2a = -0 / (1/2) = 0.

k = Yv = (1/4)0^2 + 1 = 1.

V(h,k) = V(0,1).

F(0,Y2),

VF = Y2 - k = 1/4a,

Y2 - 1 = 1/1 = 1,

Y2 = 2.

F(h,Y2) = F(0,2).

4. X^2 + 10X + Y^2 = 75.

Complete the square:

X^2 + 10X + (10/2)^2 + Y^2 = 75 + 25,

X^2 + 10X + 25 + Y^2 = 100,

The 1st 3 terms is a perfect square.

(X+5)^2 + Y^2 = 100,

(X+5)^2 + (Y-0)^2 = 100 = r^2,

Eq: (X-h)^2 + (Y-k)^2 = 100 = r^2.

C(h,k) = C(-5,0).

r^2 = 100.

r = 10.

5. X^2 + Y^2 - 4X + 12Y -6 = 0.

Complete the square:

X^2-4X+(-4/2)^2+Y^2+12Y+(12/2)^2-6=0,

X^2-4X+4 + Y^2+12Y+36-6=0+4+36,

(X-2)^2 + Y+6)^2 = 40+6=46

This is the Eq of a circle.

6. Eq1: x^2 + y^2 = 64,

Eq2: x^2 + 64y^2 = 64.

Multiply both sides of Eq1 by -1,and

add the Eqs:

-X^2 -Y^2 = -64

X^2 + 64Y^2 = 64.

Sum: 64y^2 = 0,

Y = 0.

Substitute "0" for Y in Eq1:

X^2 + 0^2 = 64,

X = +- 8.

Substitute +-8 for X in Eq2 and solve for Y in each case:

(8,0), (-8,0).

7. Substitute -2 for X and solve for Y.

Y = -29.

8. Y = X^3 + X^2 - 14X - 24.

The zeroes are the points where the graph crosses the X-axis(Y=0).

By trial and eror,a value of X(-2) was found that gives a Y value of 0 when

plugged into the given Eq.

(-2,0).

X = -2,

X+2 = 0.

Therefore, x+2 is a factor of the Eq.

So we divide the Eq by x+2 using long-

hand(synthetic) division and get:

X^2 - X - 12,

We now have Y = (X+2)(X^2 -X - 12).

Then we factor the Quadratic and get:

Y = (X+2)(X-4)(X+3).

X= -2,4,and -3.

9. Use same procedure as prob. 8 and

get: X = -3,-1, and 2.
