6-3 SOLVING QUADRATIC EQUATIONS BY FACTORING OBJECTIVES STUDENTS WILL BE ABLE TO: 1)SOLVE QUADRATIC EQUATIONS BY FACTORING 2)WRITE A QUADRATIC EQUATION WITH GIVEN ROOTS

METHODS OF SOLVING QUADRATIC EQUATIONS 1)Graphically (Sections 6.1, 6.2 and 6.6) 2) Factoring (Section 6.3) 3) Completing the Square (Section 6.4) 4) Quadratic Formula (Section 6.5)

ZERO PRODUCT PROPERTY For any real numbers a and b, if ab = 0, then either a = 0 or b = 0.

To solve a quadratic equation by FACTORING: 1) Set the equation equal to zero (collect all terms on one side of the equation) 2) Completely factor the equation. 3) Set each factor equal to zero and solve.

Solve each equation by factoring. 1)2)

3)4)

5)6)

Try these. 7)8) 9)10) 11)12)

If given the roots to a quadratic equation, we can actually work backwards to determine what the equation is. Example: Write a quadratic equation with the roots -4 and 7.

Try this one. Write a quadratic equation with the roots 4 and -5.
