Do Now : Evaluate when x = 6, y = -2 and z = 3

6-5 The Quadratic Formula and the Discriminant Objectives Students will be able to: 1)Solve quadratic equations by using the Quadratic Formula 2)Use the discriminant to determine the number and type of roots of a quadratic equation

Using the quadratic formula is yet another way to solve quadratic equations. Find the solutions of a quadratic equation in the form

Solve each equation by using the quadratic formula. 1)
