2.13 Using Square Roots to Solve Quadratic Equations

All positive real numbers have 2 square roots
Positive square root (principle square root) Negative square root Radicand: number or expression inside the radical symbol Perfect square: squared integer If there is no b, you can isolate the x2 and then solve using square roots.

EXAMPLE 1 Solve quadratic equations Solve the equation. a. 2x2 = 8 SOLUTION a. 2x2 = 8 Write original equation. x2 = 4 Divide each side by 2. x = ± 4 = ± 2 Take square roots of each side. Simplify. The solutions are –2 and 2. ANSWER

EXAMPLE 1 Solve quadratic equations b. m2 – 18 = – 18 Write original equation. m2 = 0 Add 18 to each side. m = 0 The square root of 0 is 0. ANSWER The solution is 0.

EXAMPLE 1 Solve quadratic equations c. b = 5 Write original equation. b2 = – 7 Subtract 12 from each side. ANSWER Negative real numbers do not have real square roots. So, there is no real solution.

 EXAMPLE 2 Take square roots of a fraction Solve 4z2 = 9. SOLUTION
Write original equation. z2 = 9 4 Divide each side by 4. z = ± 9 4 Take square roots of each side. z = ± 3 2 Simplify. The solutions are – and 3 2

Approximate solutions of a quadratic equation
EXAMPLE 3 Approximate solutions of a quadratic equation Solve 3x2 – 11 = 7. Round the solutions to the nearest hundredth. SOLUTION 3x2 – 11 = 7 Write original equation. 3x2 = 18 Add 11 to each side. x2 = 6 Divide each side by 3. x = ± 6 Take square roots of each side. The solutions are about – 2.45 and about 2.45.
