**10-7 The Quadratic Formula**

2
**What Does The Formula Do ?**

The Quadratic formula allows you to find the roots of a quadratic equation (if they exist) even if the quadratic equation does not factor. The formula states that for a quadratic equation of the form : ax2 + bx + c = 0 The roots of the quadratic equation are given by :

3
Example 1 Use the quadratic formula to solve the equation : x 2 + 5x + 6= 0 Solution: x 2 + 5x + 6= 0 a = 1 b = 5 c = 6 x = - 2 or x = - 3 These are the roots of the equation.

4
Example 2 Use the quadratic formula to solve the equation : 8x 2 + 2x - 3= 0 Solution: 8x 2 + 2x - 3= 0 a = 8 b = 2 c = -3 x = ½ or x = - ¾ These are the roots of the equation.

5
Example 3 Use the quadratic formula to solve the equation : 8x x + 15= 0 Solution: 8x x + 15= 0 a = 8 b = c = 15 x = 3/2 or x = 5/4 These are the roots of the equation.

6
Example 4 Use the quadratic formula to solve for x to 2 d.p : 2x 2 +3x - 7= 0 Solution: 2x 2 + 3x – 7 = 0 a = 2 b = 3 c = - 7 x = or x = These are the roots of the equation.
