Fuel Consumption Suppose an automobile’s fuel consumption is 28 mi/gal in city driving and 34 mi/gal in highway driving. If x denotes the number of city miles and y denotes the number of highway miles, then the total miles this car can travel on a 15-gallon tank of fuel must satisfy the inequality 1 28 x ϩ 341 y Յ 15 Use this inequality to answer the following questions.

We state the answer rounded to two significant figures because the least accurate of the given numbers is stated to two significant figures.

Signs of Numbers Let a, b, and c be real numbers with a Ͼ 0, b Ͻ 0, and c Ͻ 0. Determine the sign of each expression. 4 R ATIONAL E XPONENTS AND R ADICALS Radicals ᭤ Rational Exponents ᭤ Rationalizing the Denominator In this section we learn to work with expressions that contain radicals or rational exponents. ▼ Radicals We know what 2n means whenever n is an integer. To give meaning to a power, such as 24/5, whose exponent is a rational number, we need to discuss radicals. ” Thus 1a ϭ b It is true that the number 9 has two square roots, 3 and Ϫ3, but the notation 19 is reserved for the positive square root of 9 (sometimes called the principal square root of 9).
