If a 1, divide each term of the equation by a . 3. Square half of the numerical coefficient of the linear term. Add the result to both sides of the equation. 4. Factor the left side; then take the square root of both sides of the equation. 5. Solve the resulting equation for x . 6. Check the solutions in the original equation. Solve. Solve a quadratic equation by using the quadratic formula, p. 552 If ax 2 + bx + c = 0, where a 0, 1. Rewrite the equation in standard form. 2.Determine the values of a, b, and c. 3. Substitute the values of a, b , and c into the formula. 4. Simplify the result to obtain the values of x . 5. Any imaginary solutions to the quadratic equation should be simplified by using the definition , where a > 0. Solve. a = 2, b = 3, c = 2 Placing a quadratic equation in standard form, p. 554 A quadratic equation in standard form is an equation of the form ax 2 + bx + c = 0, where a, b , and c are real numbers and a 0. It is often necessary to remove parentheses and clear away fractions by multiplying each term of the equation by the LCD to obtain the standard form. Rewrite in quadratic form. 2 over begin denominator x 3 end denominator plus x over begin denominator x plus 3 end denominator equals 5 over begin denominator x to the 2 power 9 end denominator open parenthesis x plus 3 close parenthesis open parenthesis x 3 close parenthesis open square bracket 2 over begin denominator x 3 end denominator close square bracket plus open parenth
