2 Topic Completing the Square California Standard: 14.0 Students solve a quadratic equation by factoring or completing the square. What it means for you: You’ll form perfect square trinomials by adding numbers to binomial expressions. Key words: completing the square perfect square trinomial binomial

3
3 Topic Completing the Square “Completing the square” is another method for solving quadratic equations — but before you solve any equations, you need to know how completing the square actually works.

4
4 Topic Writing Perfect Square Trinomials as Perfect Squares Completing the Square An expression such as ( x + 1) 2 is called a perfect square — because it’s (something) 2. In a similar way, an expression such as x x + 1 is called a perfect square trinomial (“trinomial” because it has 3 terms). Any trinomial of the form x dx + d 2 is a perfect square trinomial, since it can be written as the square of a binomial: x dx + d 2 = ( x + d ) 2 This is because it can be written as a perfect square: x x + 1 = ( x + 1) 2

5 Topic Converting Binomials to Perfect Squares Completing the Square The binomial expression x x is not a perfect square — it can’t be written as the square of a binomial. However, it can be turned into a perfect square trinomial if you add a constant (a number) to the expression.

6 Topic Example 1 Solution follows… Completing the Square Convert x x to a perfect square trinomial. Solution To do this you have to add a number to the original expression. First look at the form of perfect square trinomials, and compare the coefficient of x with the constant term (the number not followed by x or x 2 ): x dx + d 2 = ( x + d ) 2 The coefficient of x is 2 d, while the constant term is d 2. To convert x x to a perfect square trinomial, add the square of half of 4 — that is, add 2 2 = 4, to give x x + 4 = ( x + 2) 2 The constant term is the square of half of the coefficient of x.

7 Topic Guided Practice Solution follows… Completing the Square By adding a constant, convert each of these binomials into a perfect square trinomial. 1. x x 2. x 2 – 12 x 3. x x 4. x 2 – 8 x 5. y y 6. p 2 – 16 p x x + 49 x 2 – 12 x + 36 x x + 1 x 2 – 8 x + 16 y y p 2 – 16 p + 64

8 Topic Completing the Square for x 2 + bx Completing the Square Completing the square for x 2 + bx To convert x 2 + bx into a perfect square trinomial, add. b 2 2 The resulting trinomial is x +. b 2 2

9
9 Topic Example 2 Solution follows… Completing the Square Form a perfect square trinomial from x x. Solution This gives you x x Here, b = 8, so to complete the square you add

10
10 Topic Example 3 Solution follows… Completing the Square What must be added to y 2 – 12 y to make it a perfect square trinomial? Solution This time, b = –12 So 36 must be added (giving y 2 – 12 y + 36). To complete the square you add = (–6) 2 = –12 2

11
11 Topic Example 4 Solution follows… Completing the Square Suppose x 2 – 10 x + c is a perfect square trinomial, and is equal to ( x + k ) 2. What are the values of c and k ? Solution Here the coefficient of x is –10. So to form a perfect square trinomial, the constant term has to be the square of half of –10, so c = (–5) 2 = 25. Therefore x 2 – 10 x + c = x 2 – 10 x + 25 = ( x + k ) 2. Now multiply out the parentheses of ( x + k ) 2. ( x + k ) 2 = x kx + k 2 Solution continues…

12
12 Topic Example 4 Completing the Square Suppose x 2 – 10 x + c is a perfect square trinomial, and is equal to ( x + k ) 2. What are the values of c and k ? Solution (continued) ( x + k ) 2 has to equal x 2 – 10 x + 25, which gives x 2 – 10 x + 25 = x kx + k 2. Equate the coefficients of x : the coefficient of x on the left-hand side is –10, while on the right-hand side it is 2 k. So –10 = 2 k, or k = –5. Comparing the constant terms in a similar way, you find that 25 = k 2, which is also satisfied by k = –5.

19 Topic Example 5 Solution follows… Completing the Square If 3 x 2 – 12 x + m is equal to 3( x + d ) 2, what is m ? Solution Multiply out the parentheses of 3( x + d ) 2 to get: 3( x + d ) 2 = 3 x dx + 3 d 2 So 3 x 2 – 12 x + m = 3 x dx + 3 d 2 Equate the coefficients of x, and the constants, to get: –12 = 6 d and m = 3 d 2 The first equation tells you that d = –2. And the second tells you that m = 3(–2) 2, or m = 12. So 3 x 2 – 12 x + 12 = 3( x – 2) 2.
