1
Solving Equations In Quadratic Form There are several methods one can use to solve a quadratic equation. Sometimes we are called upon to solve an equation that is in Quadratic Form. A quadratic equation is an equation that can be simplified into the form … An equation in quadratic form can be simplified into the form …

2
Example 1: Move all terms to the left side. Solve the equation This equation is now in quadratic form.

3
We will solve the equation with what is called a u-substitution. Let u = expression. The equation now takes the form of a quadratic equation by substituting u for the expression.

4
Solve the quadratic equation.

5
Since the original equation was in variable x, our solutions need to be in variable x. Taking the solutions of u and combining them with the original u-substitution equation we get …

6
Solving these two quadratic equations … … we now have the solution to the original equation.

7
Example 2: Solve the equation Note that this equation is in quadratic form.

8
Use a u-substitution. Let u = expression. The equation now takes the form of a quadratic equation by substituting u for the expression.

9
Solve the quadratic equation.

10
Since the original equation was in variable x, our solutions need to be in variable x. Taking the solutions of u and combining them with the original u-substitution equation we get …

11
Solving the first equation …
