14 Additional Types of Equations and Systems of Equations


After completion of this chapter, the student should be able to:

  • Graph conic sections using a calculator

  • Solve systems involving conics and other nonlinear equations graphically

  • Solve systems involving nonlinear equations algebraically by the method of substitution or by the method of addition and subtraction

  • Solve application problems involving systems of nonlinear equations

  • Solve equations in quadratic form

  • Solve equations with radicals

  • Solve application problems involving equations in quadratic form or equations with radicals

In this chapter, we discuss graphical and algebraic solutions of systems of equations of types different from those of earlier chapters. ...
