9.2 Solving Quadratic Equations by Completing the Square Completing the Square To complete the square for an expression like x2 + bx, we take half of the coefficient of x and square it. Then we add that number, which is (b/2)2. c Solve quadratic equations by completing the square. Copyright 2011, 2007, 2003, 1999 Pearson Education, Inc. Slide 11

9.2 Solving Quadratic Equations by Completing the Square c Solve quadratic equations by completing the square. E Complete the square: x2 – 16x Solution The coefficient of x is –16. Half of –16 is –8 and (–8)2 = 64 Thus, x2 – 16 becomes a perfect-square trinomial when 64 is added: x2 – 16x + 64 is the square of x – 8 The number 64 completes the square. Check: (x – 8)2 = (x – 8)(x – 8) = x2 – 8x – 8x + 64 = x2 – 16x + 64 Copyright 2011, 2007, 2003, 1999 Pearson Education, Inc. Slide 12

9.2 Solving Quadratic Equations by Completing the Square Solving by Completing the Square To solve a quadratic equation ax2 + bx + c = 0 by completing the square: 1. If a ≠ 1, multiply by 1/a so that the x2 –coefficient is 1. 2. If the x2 –coefficient is 1, add so that the equation is in the form x2 + bx = –c, or if step (1) has been applied. 3. Take half of the x-coefficient and square it. Add the result on both sides of the equation. 4.

9.2 Solving Quadratic Equations by Completing the Square d Solve certain applied problems involving quadratic equations of the type ax2 = p. I The Taipei 101 tower in Taiwan is 1670 feet tall. How long would it take an object to fall to the ground from the top? 1. Familiarize. A formula that fits this situation is s = 16t2, where s is the distance, in feet, traveled by a body falling freely from rest in t seconds. We know that s is 1670 feet. 2. Translate. We know the distance is 1670 feet and that we need to solve for t. 1670 = 16t2 (continued) Copyright 2011, 2007, 2003, 1999 Pearson Education, Inc. Slide 20
