1 5.7 Notes Completing the Square Warm-up: 1) 2) Factor this perfect square trinomial. 3) ) 3 )( 3 ( - - x x 4 - ± 36 12 2 + - x x Objective: - solve equations by completing the square -rewrite functions by completing the square Solving Perfect Square Trinomial Equations Solve: Step 1: Factor the trinomial Step 2: Find the square root of each side Step 3: Solve for x. 36 25 10 2 = + + x x Completing the Square If one side of an equation is not a perfect square trinomial, you can convert it into one by rewriting the constant term. Perfect Square Trinomial: 2 2 2 + + b bx x Use this to find the missing value for c. Examples: 1) 2) _____ 8 2 + - x x _____ 7 2 + + x x Completing the Square You can solve ANY quadratic equation by completing the square. Step 1: Subtract 5 from both sides 0 5 12 2 = + - x x Step 2: Find Step 3: Complete the square by adding that value to both sides. 2 2 b Completing the Square Step 4: Factor the perfect square trinomial Step 5: Find the square root of
