Find the inverse of \(\displaystyle{x}+{1}\in\mathbb{Q}\frac{{{x}}}{{{x}^{{3}}-{2}}}\). Explain why this is the same as finding the inverse of \(\displaystyle{\sqrt[{{3}}]{{{2}}}}\in\mathbb{R}\).

Let tthe polynominal \(\displaystyle{f{{\left({x}\right)}}}={x}+{1}{\quad\text{and}\quad}{p}{\left({x}\right)}={x}^{{3}}-{2}.\)
Using the Educlidean algorithm theorem, divide \(\displaystyle{x}^{{3}}-{2}\ {b}{y}\ {x}+{1}.\)
Divide by -3 on the both the sides of the above equation.
That is \(\displaystyle{\left\langle{p}{\left({x}\right)}\right\rangle}+{\left(\frac{{1}}{{3}}\right)}\cdot{\left({x}^{{2}}-{x}+{1}\right)}\cdot{\left({f{{\left({x}\right)}}}\right)}={1}\)
Therefore, the inverse of the element \(x+1\) is \(\displaystyle{\left(\frac{{1}}{{3}}\right)}\cdot{\left({x}^{{2}}-{x}+{1}\right)}\)
By the theorem, "Let F be a field and let \(\displaystyle{p}{\left({x}\right)}\in{F}{\left({x}\right)}\) be an irreducible polynominal. Suppose K is an extension field of F containing the root \(\displaystyle\alpha\) of p(x), \(\displaystyle{p}{\left(\alpha\right)}={0}\). Let \(\displaystyle{F}{\left(\alpha\right)}\) denote the subfield of K generated by \(\displaystyle\alpha\) over F. Then \(\displaystyle{F}{\left(\alpha\right)}\stackrel{\sim}{=}{F}\frac{{{x}}}{{{p}{\left({x}\right)}}}'\)
Here \(F=Q\) and \(\displaystyle{p}{\left({x}\right)}={x}^{{3}}-{2}\)
Note that, the root of the polynominal p(x) is \(\displaystyle{\left({2}\right)}^{{\frac{{1}}{{3}}}}\) and p(x) is ireeducible over Q
By the theorem \(\displaystyle{Q}{\left({\left({2}\right)}^{{\frac{{1}}{{3}}}}\right)}\stackrel{\sim}{=}{Q}\frac{{{x}}}{{{x}^{{3}}-{2}}}\)
Therefore, the inverse of \(x+1\) over \(\displaystyle{Q}\frac{{{x}}}{{{x}^{{3}}-{2}}}\) sameas inverse \(\displaystyle{o}{f}{2}^{{\frac{{1}}{{3}}}}+{1}\) over \(\displaystyle\mathbb{R}\)
The inverse of the element \(x+1\) is \(\displaystyle{\left(\frac{{1}}{{3}}\right)}\cdot{\left({x}^{{2}}-{x}+{1}\right)}.\)

An nth root of unity epsilon is an element such that \(\displaystyle\epsilon^{{n}}={1}\). We say that epsilon is primitive if every nth root of unity is \(\displaystyle\epsilon^{{k}}\) for some k. Show that there are primitive nth roots of unity \(\displaystyle\epsilon_{{n}}\in\mathbb{C}\) for all n, and find the degree of \(\displaystyle\mathbb{Q}\rightarrow\mathbb{Q}{\left(\epsilon_{{n}}\right)}\) for \(\displaystyle{1}\le{n}\le{6}\)

If John, Trey, and Miles want to know how’ | many two-letter secret codes there are that don't have a repeated letter. For example, they want to : count BA and AB, but they don't want to count“ doubles such as ZZ or XX. Jobn says there are 26 + 25 because you don’t want to use the same letter twice; that’s why the second number is 25.
‘Trey says he thinks it should be times, not plus: 26-25, Miles says the number is 26-26 ~ 26 because you need to take away the double letters. Discuss the boys’ ideas, Which answers are correct, which are not, and why? Explain your answers clearly and thoroughly, drawing ‘on this section’s definition of multiptication.. -

Sheila is in Ms. Cai's class . She noticed that the graph of the perimeter for the "dented square" in problem 3-61 was a line . "I wonder what the graph of its area looks like ," she said to her teammates .
a. Write an equation for the area of the "dented square" if xx represents the length of the large square and yy represents the area of the square.
b. On graph paper , graph the rule you found for the area in part (a). Why does a 1st−quadrant graph make sense for this situation? Are there other values of xx that cannot work in this situation? Be sure to include an indication of this on your graph, as necessary.
c. Explain to Sheila what the graph of the area looks like.
d. Use the graph to approximate xx when the area of the shape is 20 square units.
