Questions and Answers

Write the standard form of a quadratic equation.

The standard form of a quadratic equation is $ax^2 + bx + c = 0$, where $a$, $b$, and $c$ are constants with $a \neq 0$.

Is f(x) = 2x +3 a quadratic equation? Explain why or why not.

No, because it is a linear equation.

The zero-factor property states that If (a)(b) = 0 then a = 0 or b = 0

Use the same property to solve (x+9)(5x-6)=0

Using the zero-factor property, the solutions are $x + 9 = 0$ and $5x - 6 = 0$, which give $x = -9$ and $x = \frac{6}{5}$ respectively.

Solve the equation $(x + 12)(4x - 7) = 0 using the zero-factor property.

<p>Using the zero-factor property, the solutions are $x + 12 = 0$ and $4x - 7 = 0$, which give $x = -12$ and $x = \frac{7}{4}$ respectively.</p> Signup and view all the answers

Solving Quadratic Equations Using the Zero-Factor Property

Learning Objectives

  • Solve quadratic equations using the zero-factor property
  • Solve other equations using the zero-factor property

Important Terms

  • Standard Form: The form of a quadratic equation written as ax^2 + bx + c = 0
  • Double Solution: Two identical factors leading to the same solution
  • Quadratic Equation: An equation that can be written in the form ax^2 + bx + c = 0, with a ≠ 0

Solving Quadratic Equations

Example: (x + 9)(5x - 6) = 0

  • Apply the zero-factor property: x + 9 = 0 or 5x - 6 = 0
  • Solve for x: x = -9 or x = 6/5

Example: (x + 12)(4x - 7) = 0

  • Apply the zero-factor property: x + 12 = 0 or 4x - 7 = 0
  • Solve for x: x = -12 or x = 7/4
