Solving a Quadratic Equation by Completing the Square

Nature of Roots

In general, a quadratic equation may have : (1) two distinct (unequal) real roots (2) one double (repeated) real root (3) no real roots

Two distinct (unequal) real roots x-intercepts

One double (repeated) real roots x-intercept

No real roots no x-intercept

△ = b 2 - 4ac Since the expression b 2 - 4ac can be used to determine the nature of the roots of a quadratic equation in the form ax 2 – bx + c = 0, it is called the discriminant of the quadratic equation.

Two distinct (unequal) real roots x-intercepts △ = b 2 - 4ac > 0

One double (repeated) real roots x-intercept △ = b 2 - 4ac = 0

No real roots no x-intercept △ = b 2 - 4ac < 0

1. Solve the following quadratic equation using factorization method, a. 6x² + 5x – 4 =0 b. x² + 3x – 18 = 0 2. Find the nature of roots of the given quadratic equation a. 2x² - 3x – 7 =0 b. - x² - 2x +6 =0 3. Solve the given quadratic equation by using formula, a. X² - 6 x +10 = 0 b. 2x² + 4x + 1 = 0

4.Solve each equation by completing the square (a)2x 2 + 13x + 20 = 0(b)3x 2 = 4x + 7 (c)x 2 – 8x + 9 = 0(d)-5x 2 + 6x + 1 = 0
