Unformatted text preview: Chapter 11 Quadratic Equations and Functions Â§ 11.1 Solving Quadratic Equations by Completing the Square MartinGay, Beginning and Intermediate Algebra, 4ed 3 Square Root Property We previously have used factoring to solve quadratic equations. This chapter will introduce additional methods for solving quadratic equations. Square Root Property If b is a real number and a 2 = b , then . a b = Â± MartinGay, Beginning and Intermediate Algebra, 4ed 4 Solve x 2 = 49 2 Â± = x Solve ( y â€“ 3) 2 = 4 Solve 2 x 2 = 4 x 2 = 2 7 49 Â± = Â± = x y = 3 Â± 2 y = 1 or 5 2 4 3 Â± = Â± = y Square Root Property Example: MartinGay, Beginning and Intermediate Algebra, 4ed 5 Solve x 2 + 4 = 0 Square Root Property Example: 4 x = Â± 2 x i = Â± 2 4 x =  MartinGay, Beginning and Intermediate Algebra, 4ed 6 Solve ( x + 2) 2 = 25 x =  2 Â± 5 x =  2 + 5 or x =  2 â€“ 5 x = 3 or x =  7 5 25 2 Â± = Â± = + x Square Root Property Example: MartinGay, Beginning and Intermediate Algebra, 4ed 7 Solve (3 x â€“ 17) 2 = 28 7 2 17 3 Â± = x 3 7 2 17 Â± = x 7 2 28 Â± = Â± 3 x â€“ 17 = Square Root Property Example: MartinGay,...
