Holt Algebra 1 9-9 The Quadratic Formula and the Discriminant

Holt Algebra 1 9-9 The Quadratic Formula and the Discriminant Many quadratic equations can be solved by graphing, factoring, taking the square root, or completing the square. Some cannot be solved by any of these methods, but you can always use the Quadratic Formula to solve any quadratic equation.

Holt Algebra 1 9-9 The Quadratic Formula and the Discriminant If the quadratic equation is in standard form, the discriminant of a quadratic equation is b 2 – 4ac, the part of the equation under the radical sign.
