2 as quadratic functions. That is, we consider three functions: f (x) = x 2 − 2x + 1, g(x) = x 2 − 2x − 6 and h(x) = x 2 − 2x + 8. 7 Diagrammatic representation of the solutions to a quadratic equation. quadratic functions. ). 7 that the quadratic function may or may not have horizontal intercepts. This corresponds to the fact that the quadratic equation may or may not have real roots. 2). 7, does not have horizontal intercepts. horizontal intercepts of the quadratic function √ The two √ 2 g(x) = x − 2x − 6 are 1 − 7 and 1 + 7.
Hence, (±4i)2 = −16. We have obtained the answer for the question q 2 = −16: the answer is q = ±4i. q − 3i 3 We use a combination of real and imaginary numbers, such as a + bi, d − ci, . 4i − 7 Such numbers are called complex numbers. We will not deal with these numbers in introductory economics or ﬁnance (obviously they do not make any economic/ﬁnancial sense on the surface), but nevertheless, it is useful to have the knowledge of where these numbers come from. 7 Factorisation: reducing polynomial expressions We call an expression involving the addition of terms, each having a variable with an unspeciﬁed value raised to a different power, a polynomial expression.
When n = 2, we say ‘q is the square root of y’. It follows from the convention that q 2 is called q-squared. As you may know, √ √ we can simply write it as q = y (instead of 2 y). In turn, when n = 3, we say ‘q is the cube (or cubic) root of y’. It again follows from the convention that q 3 is called q-cubed. Two remarks should be made regarding this introduction of non-integer powers. First, the number deﬁned by a statement may not be unique. For example, 9 can be written as 9 = 3 × 3 = 32 as well as 9 = (−3) × (−3) = (−3)2 .
