Using the quadratic formula. Some quadratic equations do not have real number solutions.
These techniques still apply for ﬁnding the complex number
solutions. Outline Quadratic Equations Solving Quadratic Equations The Zero Product Property
Theorem (The Zero Product Property)
If a and b are real numbers (or real-valued expressions) then
ab = 0 if and only if a = 0 or b = 0. We apply the zero product property to solve a quadratic
equation as follows:
Write the equation in standard form: ax 2 + bx + c = 0.
Factor the left-han...
