1
Solving Quadratic Equations by Factoring

2
The quadratic equation is written in the form ax 2 + bx + c = 0 To solve quadratic equations by factoring we use the Zero Product Principle If A B = 0 then A = 0 or B = 0 Where A and B are two quantities

3
Solving Quadratic Equations by Factoring Example: Solve each of the following quadratic equations. a) x 2 – 3x – 40 = 0 (x – 8)(x + 5) = 0 x – 8 = 0 or x + 5 = 0 Zero Product Principle x = 8 or x = -5 The solution set s.s. = {8, -5}

4
Solving Quadratic Equations by Factoring b) 8x 2 = 15 – 14x 8x 2 + 14x – 15 = 0 (4x – 3)(2x + 5) = 0 4x – 3 = 0 or 2x + 5 = 0

5
Solving Quadratic Equations by Factoring c) 3x 2 – 9x = 0 3x(x – 3) = 0 3x = 0 or x – 3 = 0 x = 0 or x = 3 s.s. = {0, 3}
