WHAT IS QE (QUADRATIC EQUATIO)?

1. Often, the simplest way to solve for the value of x is to factor


the quadratic, set each factor equal to zero, and then solve each
factor.

HERE ARE SOME EXAMPLES OF QUADRATIC QUATION:


"ax2 + bx + c = 0"

AND THERE ARE 4 METHODS OF QE:

1, QUADRATIC EQUATION BY FACTORING


2, COMPLETING THE SQUARE
3, QUDRATIC EQUATION BY EXTRACTING
4, QUDRATIC EQUATION BY SQUARE ROOT

1,QUADRATIC QUATION BY FACTORING:


The factors of

x2 + 3x - 4 are:
(x+4) and (x-1)
(x+4)(x-1) = x(x-1) + 4(x-1)
= x2 - x + 4x - 4
= x2 + 3x - 4

Multiplying (x+4)(x-1) together is called


In fact, Expanding and Factoring are opposites:

2, QE BY COMPLETING THE SQARE:


(x 4)2 = 5
x 4 = sqrt(5)
x = 4 sqrt(5)
x = 4 sqrt(5) and x = 4 + sqrt(5)

3,QUADRATIC EQUATION BY EXTRACTING:

(x 5)2 100 = 0
(x 5)2 = 100
x 5 = 10
x = 5 10
x = 5 10 or x = 5 + 10
x = 5 or x = 15

4, QUADRATIC EQUATION BY SQUARE ROOT:

SOME QADRATC QUATIONS CAN BE SOLVED THRU:


THE FOIL METHOD:

DISTRIBUTIVE PROPERTY:

AND THE CROSS MULTIPLY:
