Section 6.3: Solving Quadratic Equations by Factoring

The ZERO PRODUCT RULE: for any two real numbers a and b,

if a⋅ b = 0 , then either a = 0 or b = 0, or both.


Example: Ex1.: St1.

If (x + 5)(x - 7) = 0 If (x – 9)(x + 1) = 0

Then______________________________ Then______________________________

Directions: Solve by factoring
