What are a few of the root causes of the trend toward prevention? What are the key root causes of the challenges for preventative health care? How do prevention and treatment models compare as to outcomes?

Solution Preview

The notion of prevention is not new. Even 30 years ago health educators were working with companies and the public in attempts to focus on diet, exercise, screening to detect cancer, etc. It was difficult to convince employers to invest in prevention. Educating teens and preteens paid off, though. Where the peak of teen pregnancy was in the late 80s and research has shown that in fact health education and preventive efforts paid off, with the trends in teen pregnancy has declined.

It is and always has been an ...

Solution Summary

Prevention in health care is discussed along with outcomes is discussed.

Addition of radicals are treated similar to polynomials, but instead of multiples of x's and x2's, we have multiples of things that look very much like root x and root x - 2. When adding such expressions together, no arithmetic can be done underneath the radical. However, like radicals can be combined
together.
Question 1)

Can you show me how to solve the following equations?
Square roots confuse me.
Sq Root of X-1=3?
Sq Root of X^3=8?
and ^3sq root of x^2=4?
Is the sq root of x^2=x an identity?

Find the square root. Assume that all of the variables represent positive real numbers.
1. The square root 25x^12
Find the cube root.
2. ^3 square root 512
Simplify the radical expressions. Assume that all variables represent positive real numbers.
3. the square root of 72 multiply the square root of 2
4. the square

How would you explain to a seventh grader the difference between the domains of an odd root radical function and an even root radical function? How would you change your explanation for someone who had taken high school algebra?

find the scale factor after a dilation centered at the origin if H(4*square root of 2, -3 square root of 5), P (-2 * square root of 2, 2 * square root of 5) and H(square root of 128, - square root of 180) P(- square root of 32, square root of 80)

You had "2^(2/3) = 4^(1/3) = cube root of (4)"
It looks like you did 2^2 first and then did the 1/3 power. This is 100% correct. However, if we had a case where we had a perfect square or perfect cube, could we have take the denominator root first? Why?
