Quadratic equation: ax^2+bx+c=0Quadratic formula: Distance formula: Midpoint formula:Method/Notes:Example:Apply the Zero Product PropertySet one side of the equation equal to zero and factor the other side. Then apply the zero product propertyComplete the Square and Apply the Square Root Property Good choice if the equation in in the form x^2=kGood choice if the equation is in the form ax^2+bx+c=0, where a=1 and b is an even real numberApply the Quadratic Formula Applies in all situationsConsider clearing fractions or decimals ifthe coefficients are not integer values Give a quadratic equation ax^2+bx+c=0 (a cannot equal 0), the equantity b^2-4ac us called the discriminantDiscriminant b^2-4acNumber and type of solutionsExamplesResult of Quadratic Formula2 imaginary solutions1 real solution2 real solutionsgIs the acceleration due to gravity At sea level on earth, g=32ft/sec^2 or g=9.8m/sec^2tIs the time of travel V0Is the initial velocity+ if upwards
