Brainee Posted July 19, 2023 Author Share Posted July 19, 2023 Do you mean that basic algebraic methods is part of precalculus? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...

mathematic Posted July 19, 2023 Share Posted July 19, 2023 You set the choice and I chose one. It was a simple answer. What are you looking for? When I went to school algebra was hugh school and calculus was college. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...

swansont Posted July 20, 2023 Share Posted July 20, 2023 In my educational path, you were expected to know algebra when you took calculus. It was a prerequisite. Pre-calc included algebra and trigonometry Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...

amaila3 Posted October 2, 2023 Share Posted October 2, 2023 Basic algebraic methods are fundamental mathematical techniques used to manipulate algebraic expressions and equations. They are not part of calculus but are essential prerequisites for both precalculus and calculus. These methods include solving equations, simplifying expressions, working with variables, and understanding basic algebraic properties like the distributive property and the order of operations. In precalculus, you build upon your algebraic skills to study topics like functions, trigonometry, and polynomial functions. These concepts are crucial for success in calculus, which is a branch of mathematics that deals with rates of change and accumulation, such as differentiation and integration. So, to summarize, basic algebraic methods are not part of calculus but are an integral part of both precalculus and calculus, serving as the foundation upon which more advanced mathematical concepts are built.

Perhaps, but nevertheless the summary is good and perhaps useful to the OP as I said. Furthermore if it is genuinely the output of an AI, known to be unreliable, then confirmation of its worth from a unreliable greybeard human may also be welcome. 😀 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...

Eise Posted October 6, 2023 Share Posted October 6, 2023 @studiot: sure. But I do not like when people give ChatGPT answers, as if they were their own. Honest would be a 'Let me ChatGPT that for you'. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
