QUADRATIC EQUATION A quadratic equation in the variable x is an equation equivalent to the equation where a, b, and c are real numbers and a ≠ 0. © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. All rights reserved 2

THE ZERO-PRODUCT PROPERTY Let A and B be two algebraic expressions. Then AB = 0 if and only if A = 0 or B = 0. © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. All rights reserved 3

A quadratic trinomial x in with coefficient of x 2 equal to 1 is a perfect-square trinomial if the constant term is the square of one-half the coefficient of x. PERFECT SQUARE TRNOMIAL © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. All rights reserved 8

EXAMPLE 4 Solving a Quadratic Equation by Completing the Square © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. All rights reserved 9

Step 1Rearrange the quadratic equation so that the terms in x 2 and x are on the left side of the equation and the constant term is on the right side. Step 2Make the coefficient of x 2 equal to 1 by dividing both sides of the equation by the original coefficient. (Steps 1and 2 are interchangeable.)

Step 3Add the square of one-half the coefficient of x to both sides of the equation. Step 4Write the equation in the form (x + k) 2 = d using the fact that the left side is a perfect square. METHOD OF COMPLETING THE SQUARE Step 5Take the square root of each side, prefixing ± to the right side. Step 6Solve the two equations from Step 5. © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc.
