Solving Quadratic Equations by Finding Square Roots March 5, 2015

4
Square Root of a Number If b 2 = a, then b is the square root of a. Example: If 3 2 = 9, then 3 is the square root of 9.

5
VocabularyV All positive real numbers have 2 square roots – Positive square root – principle square root Negative square root Square roots are written with a radical symbol √ Radicand – number inside the radical symbol

6
Radical Radicand Radical Sign

7
Positive or Negative To indicate that we want both the positive and the negative square root of a radicand we put the symbol ± (read as plus minus) in front of the root.

8
What about zero? Zero has one square root which is 0. Negative numbers don't have real square roots since a square is either positive or 0. The square roots of negative numbers are imaginary numbers. Example : √-9

9
A negative outside the Radicand A negative sign outside the radicand symbolizes the inverse of the square root. Example: -√9 = -3

10
Evaluate the expression 1.√64 2.-√64 3.√0 4.±√0.25 5.√-4

11
Which of the following are not perfect squares? a.-√121 b.-√1.44 c.√0.09 d.√7 √7 is the only irrational number

12
Radical Expressions The square root symbol is a grouping symbol. Evaluate √b 2 -4ac when a=1, b=-2, and c=-3

13
Solving x 2 = d If d > 0, then x 2 = d has 2 solution: + and – If d = 0, then x 2 = d has 1 solution: 0 If d < 0, then x 2 = d has no real solution.

14
Solve each equation 1.x 2 = 2 2.x 2 = 5 3.x 2 = -1

15
Rewriting before finding square roots 3x 2 – 48 = 0 3x 2 = 48 X 2 = 16 X = ± √16 X = ±4

16
Falling Objects Model h = -16t 2 + s h is height in feet t is time in seconds s is the initial height the object was dropped

17
Solve the Equation If an object is dropped from an initial height 48 feet, how long will it take to reach the ground? h = -16t 2 + s 0 = -16t 2 + 48 -48 = -16t 2 3 = t 2 About 1.7 seconds = t

18
Properties of Square Rootsp Product Property – Example: Quotient Property -

19
Examples 1. √500 2.

20
Rationalizing the Denominator You CANNOT leave a radical in the denominator of a fraction! (the numerator is OK) Just multiply the top & bottom of the fraction by the radical to “rationalize” the denominator.

21
An Example

22
Try these on your own Solve. 3 - 5x 2 = -9 3(x-2) 2 =21
