- HSA-SSE.B.3Choose and produce an equivalent form of an expression to reveal and explain properties of the quantity represented by the expression.*
- HSA-SSE.B.4Derive the formula for the sum of a finite geometric series (when the common ratio is not 1), and use the formula to solve problems. For example, calculate mortgage payments.â

- HSA-SSE.B.3aFactor a quadratic expression to reveal the zeros of the function it defines.
- HSA-SSE.B.3bComplete the square in a quadratic expression to reveal the maximum or minimum value of the function it defines.
- HSA-SSE.B.3cUse the properties of exponents to transform expressions for exponential functions. For example the expression 1.15<sup>t</sup> can be rewritten as (1.15<sup>1/12</sup>)<sup>12t</sup> â 1.012<sup>12t</sup> to reveal the approximate equivalent monthly interest rate if the annual rate is 15%.

HSA-SSE.B.3a

Factor a quadratic expression to reveal the zeros of the function it defines.

HSA-SSE.B.3b

Complete the square in a quadratic expression to reveal the maximum or minimum value of the function it defines.

HSA-SSE.B.3c

Use the properties of exponents to transform expressions for exponential functions. For example the expression 1.15^{t} can be rewritten as (1.15^{1/12})^{12t} â 1.012^{12t} to reveal the approximate equivalent monthly interest rate if the annual rate is 15%.
