6 A quadratic inequality in one variable is an inequality which can be written in the form ax 2 + bx + c > 0 ( a  0) The symbols , , and  may also be used. for a, b, c real numbers.

A solution of a quadratic inequality in one variable is a number which, when substituted for the variable, results in a true inequality. Example : Which of the values of x are solutions of x 2 + 3 x − 4  0 ? − 1− 1( − 1) 2 + 3( − 1) – 4 − 6  0 true yes 0(0) 2 + 3(0) – 4 − 4  0 true yes 2(2) 2 + 3(2) – 4 6  0 false no 3(3) 2 + 3(3) – 4 14  0 false no x x 2 + 3 x – 4 x 2 + 3 x – 4  0 Solution?

Find the solution set of x 2 + 3 x − 4  0. x 2 + 3 x − 4  0 (x + 4)(x - 1)  0 (x +4)  0 (x - 1)  0 x  -4 x  1 x ≤ -4 and x ≤ 1 is a conjunction, therefore -4  x  1 -9-8-7-6-5-4-3-20123456789

Solve and graph the solution set of x 2 − 6 x + 5 < 0. YOUR TURN! 1 < x < 5 -9-8-7-6-5-4-3-20123456789

Example : Solve and graph the solution set of x 2 − x  6. x 2 - x − 6  0 (x + 2)(x - 3)  0 (x +2)  0 (x - 3)  0 x  -2 x  3 This inequality is a disjunction, therefore x  -2 or x  3 -9-8-7-6-5-4-3-20123456789
