51 L6 Quadratic Equations and the Quadratic Formula; Applications Quadratic Equations A quadratic equation is an equation of the form 2 0 ax bx c + += where a, b, and c are real numbers and 0 a . Solving by Factoring Zero-Product Property : If 0 ab = , then Example : Solve by factoring. 2 10 9 x x −= 2 41 2 9 0 x x −+ =

52 The Square Roots Method : The solution set to 2 x p = (0 ) p is the set of all square roots of the number p , that is x p Example . Solve using the Square Roots Method. 2 25 x = 2 (2 )3 x += Solving Quadratic Equations by Completing the Square : 2 0, 0 ax bx c a + 1. Make sure that 1 a = ; if not, divide each term by a . 2. Get the constant on the right-hand side of the equation. 3. Take 1/2 of the coefficient of x , square it, and add this number to both sides of the equation. 4. Factor the left-hand side into a perfect square. 5. Solve for x using the Square Roots Method.
53 Example : Solve by completing the square. 2 83 0 x x −+ = Example : Factor by using completing the square.
