Math 153 Name: SOLUTIONS Quiz 2 Show your work for full credit. February 5, 2008 1. Solve the equation S = C + RC for C . C + RC = S C (1 + R ) = S C = S 1 + R 2. Solve the quadratic equation x 2 - 2 x - 3 = 0 by completing the square. Simplify your answer. x 2 - 2 x - 3 = 0 x 2 - 2 x + 1 - 3 = 0 + 1 ( x - 1) 2 = 4 x - 1 = ± 2 x = 1 ± 2 x = - 1 or 3 3. Use the Quadratic Formula to solve the quadratic equation 4 x 2 + 16 x + 17 = 0. Simplify your answer. x = - 16 ± 16 2 - 4(4)(17) 2(4) = - 16 ± - 16 8 = - 16 ± 4 i 8 = - 2 ± 1 2 i 4. The hypotenuse of an isosceles right triangle is 7 units long. How long are its sides? x = side length of triangle x 2 + x 2 = 7 2 (Pythagorean Theorem) 2 x 2 = 49 x 2 = 49 2 x = 7 2
