Factoring Method:Zero Factor Property (Zero Product Principle): If two factors are multiplied and the product is zero, then one of the factors must equal zero: ab = 0 a = 0 or b = 0 or both. This property is used to solve quadratic equations that can be factored with zero on one side. To solve equations by factoring: 1. Write the equation with zero on one side, say the right. 2. Factor the left side.3. Set each factor equal to zero. 4. Solve the simpler equations. 5. Check the answer in the original equation.Find all real solutions by factoring:
Quadratic Formula:Any quadratic equation can be solved with this formula. Write the equation in standard form, and substitute a, b, and cinto the formula: 2bbacxa-±-=. Find all real solutions by Quadratic Formula:24
