Ch 9: Quadratic Equations B) Square Roots Objective: To solve quadratic equations using square roots.

2
Quadratic Expression An expression in which 2 is the largest exponent. ax 2 + bx + c Quadratic Equation An equation in which 2 is the largest exponent. ax 2 + bx + c = 0 Square root of a quadratic The square root of a variable squared (x 2 ) equals the absolute value of the square root. Definitions = |x| = ± x

3
1)Isolate x 2 (get x 2 on one side and the number on the other side) 2) Take the square root of BOTH sides (keep the equation balanced) 3) Solve for the absolute value of x (this creates 2 equations) Look to see if the number is on the diagonal of the multiplication table. (a) If so, it is a perfect square and you have your answer. (Don’t forget the ± symbol) (b)If not, simplify the radicand and solve for both equations Note: There should be two answers! Rules
