Unformatted text preview: Chapter Seven Project 1 & 2 Tabitha Floyd MAT126: Survey of Mathematical Methods Instructor: Kerri Dopart December 6 th , 2010 Chapter Seven Project One and Two Project one In project one we you are using method from India to solve quadratic equations. There are seven steps that must be completed to use this method. a. Move the constant term to the right side of the equation. b. Multiply each term in the equation by four times the coefficient of the x2 term. c. Square the coefficient of the original x term and add it to both sides of the equation. d. Take the square root of both sides. e. Set the left side of the equation equal to the positive square root of the number on the right side and solve for x. f. Set the left side of the equation equal to the negative square root of the number on the right side of the equation and solve for x. There are four problems that I will use to show how this process works. a) Move the constant term to the right side of the equation. 1) b) Multiply each term in the equation by four times the coefficient of the term. the coefficient of the is and four times the coefficient will be , so you will have: c) Square the coefficient of the original term and add it to both sides of the equation....
