**3.6 Solving Quadratic Equations**

By Finding the Square Root

2
**Simplifying Expressions with Radicals**

Perfect Square can’t be in radical Fraction can’t be in radical Radical can’t be in the denominator Rationalize the denominator To add/subtract, you must have like radicands

3
EXAMPLE 1 Use properties of square roots Simplify the expression. a. 80 5 16 = 5 = 4 b. 6 21 126 = 9 14 = = 3 14 c. 4 81 = 4 81 = 2 9 d. 7 16 = 7 16 = 4 7

EXAMPLE 2 Rationalize denominators of fractions. 5 2 3 7 + 2 Simplify (a) and (b) SOLUTION = 3 7 + 2 7 – (a) 5 2 = 5 2 (b) 3 7 + 2 = 5 2 = 21 – 3 2 49 – – 2 2 10 = = 21 – 3 2 47

6
**Key to solving using square roots**

Remember—You have to include the positive (principle) root as well as the negative root. x2 = 121 x = ± 11

7
**Solve a quadratic equation**

EXAMPLE 3 Solve a quadratic equation Solve 3x2 + 5 = 41. 3x2 + 5 = 41 Write original equation. 3x2 = 36 Subtract 5 from each side. x2 = 12 Divide each side by 3. x = + 12 Take square roots of each side. x = + 4 3 Product property x = + 2 3 Simplify.

8
**Solve a quadratic equation**

EXAMPLE 3 Solve a quadratic equation ANSWER The solutions are and 2 3 2 3 – Check the solutions by substituting them into the original equation. 3x2 + 5 = 41 3x2 + 5 = 41 3( )2 + 5 = 41 2 3 ? 3( )2 + 5 = 41 – 2 3 ? 3(12) + 5 = 41 ? 3(12) + 5 = 41 ? 41 = 41 41 = 41

9
**Standardized Test Practice**

EXAMPLE 4 Standardized Test Practice SOLUTION 15 (z + 3)2 = 7 Write original equation. (z + 3)2 = 35 Multiply each side by 5. z + 3 = + 35 Take square roots of each side. z = –3 + 35 Subtract 3 from each side. The solutions are – and –3 – 35
