**Unformatted text preview: **Then, ax 2 + bx + c Solutions to ax 2 + bx + c = a perfect square can be factored (over the integers) two rational numbers in fact, 0 and is a PST (Perfect Square Trinomial) one rational number not a perfect square is prime (over the integers) and positive two irrational numbers and negative two imaginary numbers (see Chapter 2) If ax 2 + bx + c can be factored over the integers , then the Factoring Method is usually faster than the Quadratic Formula when solving ax 2 + bx + c = . However, if it is prime , then the Quadratic Formula is typically used. A method for factoring ax 2 + bx + c using the Quadratic Formula will be presented in Chapter 2....
