I knew I was right when The Zero Factor Principle at least one of the factors must be equal tozero. Since at least one of the factors must be zero, I'll set them each equal to zero:x ² 3 = 0 or x ² 4 = 0This gives me simple linear equations, and they're easy to solve:x = 3 or x = 4If I missed I will make the conclusion about the factors ("one of them must equal zero") if theproduct itself equals zero. I would have to make the conclusion ("one of the factors must haveequalled zero") if the product equals zero, you must always have the equation in the form"(quadratic) equals (zero)" before you can attempt to solve it.The thing you have to remember with this kind of problem is if the product is equals to zero, you must always have the equation in the form.Tips I would give a friend to solve this problem are: you cannot make this statement about anyother number! You can only make the conclusion about the factors ("one of them must equal zero")if the product itself equals zero. If the above product of factors had been equal to, say, 4, then wewould still have no idea what was the value of either of the factors; we would not have been able(we would not have been mathematically "justified") in making anyclaim about the values of thefactors. Because you can only make the conclusion ("one of the factors must have equalled zero") ifthe product is equals to zero, you must always have the equation in the form "(quadratic) equals(zero)" before you can attempt to solve it.I wish I knew more about Solving Quadratic Equations.Ithink I solve it two times. I think of it, If I multiply two things together and the result is zero,what can I say about those two things? I can say that at least one of them must also be zero. Thatis, the only way to multiply and get zero is to multiply by zero. (This is sometimes called "The ZeroFactor Property" or "Rule" or "Principle". ..There·s other way of solving the equation and it is moresimple if I do the easy way of getting it.I use quadratic equation in solving it. Because quadraticformula is part of an equation.It·s Easy, because the ways on solving it are simple and easy tolearn.We can use this in solving quadratic equations using square roots.If I·ll miss any of the stepsthen my answers are wrong. Because if I use other formula the answer would be different. Bychecking the solutions to quadratic equations may be verified by plugging them back into theoriginal equation, and making sure that they work, that they result in a true statement.THESE ARE THE STEPS:The solution of a quadratic equation is the value of x when you set the equation equal to zeroi.e. When you solve the following general equation: 0 = ax² + bx + c
iven a quadratic equation: ax
+ bx + c
ne method to solve the equation for zero is to factor the equations.
