- A quadratic equation is a second-order polynomial equatio n in a single variable x. The general form is where x represents a variable, and a , b , and c , represent coefficients and constants, with a ≠ 0. (If a = 0, the equation becomes a linear equation.) Among his many other talents, Major General Stanley in Gilbert and Sullivan's operetta the Pirates of Penzance impresses the pirates with his knowledge of quadratic equations in "The Major General's Song" as follows: "I am the very model of a modern Major-General, I've information vegetable, animal, and mineral, I know the kings of England, and I quote the fights historical, From Marathon to Waterloo, in order categorical; I'm very well acquainted too with matters mathematical, I understand equations, both the simple and quadratic, About binomial theorem I'm teeming with a lot o' news-- With many cheerful facts about the square of the hypotenuse." The constants a , b , and c , are called respectively, the quadratic coefficient, the linear coefficient and the constant term or free term. Quadratic comes from quadratus , which is the Latin word for "square." Quadratic equations can be solved by factoring, completing the square, graphing, Newton's method, and using the quadratic formula. One common use of quadratic equations is computing trajectories in projectile motion. This module centers on the different ways of solving the quadratic equation by factoring, by finding square roots, by completing the square, and by using the quadratic formula. Students are given guides to determine the most appropriate method to use. Identifying the disciminant of the quadratic equation and finding the relationship between the coefficient and the root of the quadratic equation are also discussed. Introduction back next contents

- Lesson 1 Identifying the quadratic equation <ul><li>OBJECTIVES: </li></ul><ul><li>At the end of this lesson, students are expected to: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>define the quadratic equation; </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>discuss real numbers in quadratic equation; and </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>improve writing the standard form of the quadratic equation. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>Polynomials are classified according to the highest power of its variable. A first degree polynomial, like 2x + 5 is linear; a second degree polynomial, like x 2 + 2 – 3 is quadratic; a third degree polynomial, like x 3 + 4x 2 – 3x + 12 is cubic. Similarly, equation and inequalities are classified according to the highest power of its variable. An equation in the variable x whose highest power is two is called a quadratic equation. Some examples are x 2 – 64, 4n 2 = 25, 3x 2 – 4x + 1 = 0. An equation of the form ax 2 + bx + c = 0, where a, b and c are constant and a not equal to 0, a id a quadratic equation. to 0, a id a quadratic equation. Any quadratic equation can be written in the form a x 2 + bx + c = 0. This is also called the standard form of the quadratic equation. Here, a, b and c are real numbers and a cannot be 0. Example A. Express x 2 = 8x in standard form x 2 = 8x can be written as x 2 - 8x = 0 where a=1, b= ˉ8, and c=0. Example B. Express x 2 = 64 in standard form next back contents

- Chapter II This chapter centers on the complex numbers which is a number comprising a real number and an imaginary number.

- Lesson 2 Defining Complex Numbers <ul><li>OBJECTIVES: </li></ul><ul><li>At the end of this lesson, students are expected to: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>identify complex numbers; </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>differentiate the real number and standard imaginary unit; and </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>extend the ordinary real number. </li></ul></ul></ul>A complex number, in mathematics, is a number comprising a real number and an imaginary number; it can be written in the form a + bi , where a and b are real numbers, and i is the standard imaginary unit, having the property that i 2 = −1. The complex numbers contain the ordinary real numbers, but extend them by adding in extra numbers and correspondingly expanding the understanding of addition and multiplication. Equation 1: x 2 - 1 = 0. Equation 1 has two solutions, x = -1 and x = 1. We know that solving an equation in x is equivalent to finding the x-intercepts of a graph; and, the graph of y = x 2 - 1 crosses the x-axis at (-1,0) and (1,0). next back contents
- Equation 2: x 2 + 1 = 0 Equation 2 has no solutions, and we can see this by looking at the graph of y = x 2 + 1. Since the graph has no x-intercepts, the equation has no solutions. When we define complex numbers, equation 2 will have two solutions. next back contents

- Lesson 3 The Number i <ul><li>OBJECTIVES: </li></ul><ul><li>At the end of this lesson, students are expected to: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>recognize the property of the number i ; </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>discuss the powers of i ; and </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>solve the high powers of imaginary unit. </li></ul></ul>Consider Equations 1 and 2 again. Equation 1 has solutions because the number 1 has two square roots, 1 and -1. Equation 2 has no solutions because -1 does not have a square root. In other words, there is no number such that if we multiply it by itself we get -1. If Equation 2 is to be given solutions, then we must create a square root of -1. The imaginary unit i is defined by The definition of i tells us that i 2 = -1. We can use this fact to find other powers of i . Equation 1 Equation 2 x 2 - 1 = 0. x 2 + 1 = 0. x 2 = 1. x 2 = -1. contents back next
- Example i 3 = i 2 * i = -1* i = - i. i 4 = i 2 * i 2 = (-1) * (-1) = 1. Exercise: Simplify i 8 and i 11 . We treat i like other numbers in that we can multiply it by numbers, we can add it to other numbers, etc. The difference is that many of these quantities cannot be simplified to a pure real number. For example, 3 i just means 3 times i , but we cannot rewrite this product in a simpler form, because it is not a real number. The quantity 5 + 3 i also cannot be simplified to a real number. However, (- i ) 2 can be simplified. (- i ) 2 = (-1* i ) 2 = (-1) 2 * i 2 = 1 * (-1) = -1. Because i 2 and (- i ) 2 are both equal to -1, they are both solutions for Equation 2 above. contents back next

- Lesson 4 The Complex Plane <ul><li>OBJECTIVES: </li></ul><ul><li>At the end of this lesson, students are expected to: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>distinguish the points on the plane; </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>differentiate the real and imaginary part; and </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>draw from memory the figure form by the plot points on the complex plane. </li></ul></ul>A complex number is one of the form a + b i , where a and b are real numbers. a is called the real part of the complex number, and b is called the imaginary part . Two complex numbers are equal if and only if their real parts are equal and their imaginary parts are equal. I.e., a+bi = c+di if and only if a = c, and b = d. Example. 2 - 5i. 6 + 4i. 0 + 2i = 2i. 4 + 0i = 4. The last example above illustrates the fact that every real number is a complex number (with imaginary part 0). Another example: the real number -3.87 is equal to the complex number -3.87 + 0 i . It is often useful to think of real numbers as points on a number line. For example, you can define the order relation c < d, where c and d are real numbers, by saying that it means c is to the left of d on the number line. next back contents
- We can visualize complex numbers by associating them with points in the plane. We do this by letting the number a + b i correspond to the point (a,b), we use x for a and y for b. <ul><li>Exercises: Represent each of the following complex number by a point in the plane. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>3 + 2i </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>1 – 4i </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>4 + 3i </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>2 – 5i </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>4 – 3i </li></ul></ul>contents back next

- Lesson 5 Complex Arithmetic <ul><li>OBJECTIVES: </li></ul><ul><li>At the end of this lesson, students are expected to: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>define the four arithmetic operations on complex numbers; </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>comply with the steps in solving the different operations; and </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>solve the four arithmetic operations. </li></ul></ul>When a number system is extended the arithmetic operations must be defined for the new numbers, and the important properties of the operations should still hold. For example, addition of whole numbers is commutative. This means that we can change the order in which two whole numbers are added and the sum is the same: 3 + 5 = 8 and 5 + 3 = 8. We need to define the four arithmetic operations on complex numbers. Addition and Subtraction To add or subtract two complex numbers, you add or subtract the real parts and the imaginary parts. Example (3 - 5i) + (6 + 7i) = (3 + 6) + (-5 + 7)i = 9 + 2i. (3 - 5i) - (6 + 7i) = (3 - 6) + (-5 - 7)i = -3 - 12i. (a + bi) + (c + di) = (a + c) + (b + d)i. (a + bi) - (c + di) = (a - c) + (b - d)i. next back contents
- Note These operations are the same as combining similar terms in expressions that have a variable. For example, if we were to simplify the expression (3 - 5x) + (6 + 7x) by combining similar terms, then the constants 3 and 6 would be combined, and the terms -5x and 7x would be combined to yield 9 + 2x. The Complex Arithmetic applet below demonstrates complex addition in the plane. You can also select the other arithmetic operations from the pull down list. The applet displays two complex numbers U and V, and shows their sum. You can drag either U or V to see the result of adding other complex numbers. As with other graphs in these pages, dragging a point other than U or V changes the viewing rectangle. Multiplication The formula for multiplying two complex numbers is (a + bi) * (c + di) = (ac - bd) + (ad + bc)i. You do not have to memorize this formula, because you can arrive at the same result by treating the complex numbers like expressions with a variable, multiply them as usual, then simplify. The only difference is that powers of i do simplify, while powers of x do not. Example (2 + 3i)(4 + 7i) = 2*4 + 2*7i + 4*3i + 3*7*i 2 = 8 + 14i + 12i + 21*(-1) = (8 - 21) + (14 + 12)i = -13 + 26i. next back contents
- Notice that in the second line of the example, the i 2 has been replaced by -1. Using the formula for multiplication, we would have gone directly to the third line. Exercise Perform the following operations. (a) (-3 + 4i) + (2 - 5i) (b) 3i - (2 - 4i) (c) (2 - 7i)(3 + 4i) (d) (1 + i)(2 - 3i) Division The conjugate (or complex conjugate) of the complex number a + bi is a - bi. Conjugates are important because of the fact that a complex number times its conjugate is real; i.e., its imaginary part is zero. (a + bi)(a - bi) = (a 2 + b 2 ) + 0i = a 2 + b 2 . Example Number Conjugate Product 2 + 3i 2 - 3i 4 + 9 = 13 3 - 5i 3 + 5i 9 + 25 = 34 4i -4i 16 next back contents
- Suppose we want to do the division problem (3 + 2i) ÷ (2 + 5i). First, we want to rewrite this as a fractional expression . Even though we have not defined division, it must satisfy the properties of ordinary division. So, a number divided by itself will be 1, where 1 is the multiplicative identity; i.e., 1 times any number is that number. So, when we multiply by, , we are multiplying by 1 and the number is not changed. Notice that the quotient on the right consists of the conjugate of the denominator over itself. This choice was made so that when we multiply the two denominators, the result is a real number. Here is the complete division problem, with the result written in standard form. back next contents
- Exercise: Write (2 - i) ÷ (3 + 2i) in standard form. We began this section by claiming that we were defining complex numbers so that some equations would have solutions. So far we have shown only one equation that has no real solutions but two complex solutions. In the next section we will see that complex numbers provide solutions for many equations. In fact, all polynomial equations have solutions in the set of complex numbers. This is an important fact that is used in many mathematical applications. Unfortunately, most of these applications are beyond the scope of this course. See your text (p. 195) for a discussion of the use of complex numbers in fractal geometry. back next contents

The quadratic must first be factored, because it is only when you MULTIPLY and get zero that you can say anything about the factors and solutions. You can't conclude anything about the individual terms of the unfactored quadratic (like the 5x or the 6), because you can add lots of stuff that totals zero. </li></ul><ul><li>So the first thing I have to do is factor: </li></ul><ul><li>x 2 + 5x + 6 = (x + 2)(x + 3) </li></ul><ul><li>Set this equal to zero: </li></ul><ul><li>(x + 2)(x + 3) = 0 </li></ul><ul><li>Solve each factor: </li></ul><ul><li>x + 2 = 0 or x + 3 = 0 x = –2 or x = – 3 </li></ul><ul><li>The solution to x 2 + 5x + 6 = 0 is x = –3, –2 </li></ul><ul><li>Checking x = –3 and x = –2 in x 2 + 5x + 6 = 0: </li></ul><ul><li>[–3] 2 + 5[–3] + 6 ?=? 0 9 – 15 + 6 ?=? 0 9 + 6 – 15 ?=? 0 </li></ul>back next contents

Instead, multiply out and simplify the left-hand side, then subtract the 12 over to the left-hand side, and re-factor. </li></ul>next back contents

If you lose that sign, you can get the wrong answer in the end, because you'll forget what goes inside the parentheses. Also, don't be sloppy and wait to do the plus/minus sign until the very end. On your tests, you won't have the answers in the back, and you will likely forget to put the plus/minus into the answer. Besides, there's no reason to go ticking off your instructor by doing something wrong when it's so simple to do it right. On the same note, make sure you draw in the square root sign, as necessary, when you square root both sides. Don't wait until the answer in the back of the book "reminds" you that you "meant" to put the square root symbol in there.

- Lesson 9 Solving "by Graphing <ul><li>OBJECTIVES: </li></ul><ul><li>At the end of this lesson, students are expected to: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>define graphing; </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>resolve the equation by graphing; and </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>draw the points from the equations given. </li></ul></ul>To be honest, solving "by graphing" is an achingly trendy but somewhat bogus topic. The basic idea behind solving by graphing is that, since the "solutions" to " ax 2 + bx + c = 0" are the x -intercepts of " y = ax 2 + bx + c ", you can look at the x -intercepts of the graph to find the solutions to the equation. There are difficulties with "solving" this way, though.... When you graph a straight line like " y = 2 x + 3", you can find the x -intercept (to a certain degree of accuracy) by drawing a really neat axis system, plotting a couple points, grabbing your ruler and drawing a nice straight line, and reading the (approximate) answer from the graph with a fair degree of confidence.On the other hand, a quadratic graphs as a wiggly parabola. If you plot a few non- x -intercept points and then draw a curvy line through them, how do you know if you got the x -intercepts even close to being correct? You don't. The only way you can be sure of your x -intercepts is to set the quadratic equal to zero and solve. But the whole point of this topic is that they don't want you to do the (exact) algebraic solving; they want you to guess from the pretty pictures. So "solving by graphing" tends to be neither "solving" nor "graphing". That is, you don't actually graph anything, and you don't actually do any of the "solving". Instead, you are told to punch some buttons on your graphing calculator and look at the pretty picture, and then you're told which other buttons to hit so the software can compute the contents back next
- <ul><li>intercepts (or you're told to guess from the pretty picture in the book, hoping that the printer lined up the different print runs for the different ink colors exactly right). I think the educators are trying to "help" you "discover" the connection between x -intercepts and solutions, but the concept tends to get lost in all the button-pushing. Okay, enough of my ranting... </li></ul><ul><li>To "solve" by graphing, the book may give you a very neat graph, probably with at least a few points labeled; the book will ask you to state the points on the graph that represent solutions. Otherwise, it will give you a quadratic, and you will be using your graphing calculator to find the answer. Since different calculator models have different key-sequences, I cannot give instruction on how to "use technology" to find the answers, so I will only give a couple examples of how to solve from a picture that is given to you. </li></ul><ul><li>Solve x 2 – 8 x + 15 = 0 by using the following graph. </li></ul>The graph is of the related quadratic, y = x 2 – 8 x + 15, with the x -intercepts being where y = 0. The point here is to look at the picture (hoping that the points really do cross at whole numbers, as it appears), and read the x -intercepts (and hence the solutions) from the picture. The solution is x = 3, Since x 2 – 8 x + 15 factors as ( x – 3)( x – 5), we know that our answer is correct. contents back next
- <ul><li>Solve 0.3 x 2 – 0.5 x – 5 / 3 = 0 by using the following graph. </li></ul>For this picture, they labeled a bunch of points. Partly, this was to be helpful, because the x -intercepts are messy (so I could not have guessed their values without the labels), but mostly this was in hopes of confusing me, in case I had forgotten that only the x -intercepts, not the vertices or y -intercepts, correspond to "solutions". The x -values of the two points where the graph crosses the x -axis are the solutions to the equation. The solution is x = –5 / 3 , 10 / 3 <ul><li>Find the solutions to the following quadratic: </li></ul>contents back next
- They haven't given me the quadratic equation, so I can't check my work algebraically. (And, technically, they haven't even given me a quadratic to solve; they have only given me the picture of a parabola from which I am supposed to approximate the x -intercepts, which really is a different question....) I ignore the vertex and the y -intercept, and pay attention only to the x -intercepts. The "solutions" are the x -values of the points where the pictured line crosses the x -axis: The solution is x = –5.39, 2.76 "Solving" quadratics by graphing is silly in "real life", and requires that the solutions be the simple factoring-type solutions such as " x = 3", rather than something like " x = –4 + sqrt(7)". In other words, they either have to "give" you the answers (by labeling the graph), or they have to ask you for solutions that you could have found easily by factoring. About the only thing you can gain from this topic is reinforcing your understanding of the connection between solutions and x -intercepts: the solutions to "(some polynomial) equals (zero)" correspond to the x -intercepts of " y equals (that same polynomial)". If you come away with an understanding of that concept, then you will know when best to use your graphing calculator or other graphing software to help you solve general polynomials; namely, when they aren't factorable. contents back next

In other words, if you have a times the square of the expression following b plus b times that same expression not squared plus c equal to 0, you have an equation that is quadratic in form. If we substitute what is in the ( ) with a variable like t, then the original equation will become a quadratic equation. contents back next
- Solving Equations that are Quadratic in Form Step 1: Write in Standard Form, , if needed. Step 2: Substitute a variable in for the expression that follows b in the second term. Step 3: Solve the quadratic equation created in step 2. Step 4: Find the value of the variable from the original equation. If it is not in standard form, move any term(s) to the appropriate side by using the addition/subtraction property of equality. Also, make sure that the squared term is written first left to right, the expression not squared is second and the constant is third and it is set equal to 0. In other words, substitute your variable for what is in the ( ) when it is in standard form, . I’m going to use t for my substitution, but really you can use any variable as long as it is not the variable that is used in the original equation. You can use any method you want to solve the quadratic equation: factoring, completing the square or quadratic formula. Keep in mind that you are finding a solution to the original equation and that the variable you substituted in for in step 2 is not your original variable. Use the substitution that was used to set up step 2 and then solve for the original variable. contents back next
- Step 5: Check your solutions. Example 1: Solve the equation that is quadratic in form: . In some cases, you will be working with rational exponents and square roots in your problems. Those types of equations can cause extraneous solutions. Recall that an extraneous solution is one that is a solution to an equation after doing something like raising both sides of an equation by an even power, but is not a solution to the original problem. Even though not all of the quadratic in form equations can cause extraneous solutions, it is better to be safe than sorry and just check them all.

We will consider fractional equations, equations involving radicals and equation that can be transformed into quadratic equations by appropriate substitutions. Since the transformation process may introduce extraneous roots which are not solutions of the original equation, we must always check the solution in the original equation. Example: Solve 1 1 7 x+2 + x+3 = 12 Solution: First note that neither -2 nor -3 can be a solution since at either of these points the equation is meaningless. Multiplying by the LCD, 12(x+2) (x+3), we get 12(x+3) + 12(x+2) = 7(x+2) (x+3) 24x + 60 = 7(x 2 + 5x + 6) or 7x 2 + 11x – 18 = 0 Factoring, we get, (7x + 18)(x – 1) = 0 contents back next
- x = 1 or -18 7 If x = 1, _ 1_ _ 1_ _ 1_ _ 1_ _ 7_ 1+2 1+3 = 3 + 4 = 12 Therefore x = 1 is a solution. If x = -18 , __ 1__ + __ 1__ 7 -18/7 + 2 -18/7 + 3 = __ 7 __ + __ 7 __ -18 + 14 -18 + 21 = _ -7 _ + _ 7 _ = _ 7 _ 4 3 12 Therefore, x = _-18 _ is a solution. 7 Example 2. = - 2 Solution: squaring both sides of the equation, we obtain, = + 4 2x – 16 = 4 contents back next
- Dividing both sides by 2 gives, x – 8 = -2 Squaring both sides of the equation we get (x - 8) = 2 x 2 - 16x + 64 = 4 (x +16) x 2 – 20x = 0 x(x – 20) =0 x = 0 or x = 20 Check: if x = 0, = = 8 = 6 – 2 8 ≠ 4 Therefore x = 20 is not a solution of the original equation.

- Chapter V The discriminant gives additional information on the nature of the roots beyond simply whether there are any repeated roots: it also gives information on whether the roots are real or complex, and rational or irrational. More formally, it gives information on whether the roots are in the field over which the polynomial is defined, or are in an extension field, and hence whether the polynomial factors over the field of coefficients. This is most transparent and easily stated for quadratic and cubic polynomials; for polynomials of degree 4 or higher this is more difficult to state. <ul><li>TARGET SKILLS: </li></ul><ul><li>At the end of this chapter, students are expected to: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>• determine discriminant, roots and coefficient; </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>• discuss the relation the roots and coefficient; </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>• find the sum and product of the roots; and </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>• change quadratic equation to discriminant formula. </li></ul></ul></ul>The Discriminant, Roots and Coefficient next back contents

Find the x-intercept of y = 3x² - 6x + 4. Solution: As already mentioned, the values of x for which 3x² - 6x + 4 = 0 give the x-intercepts of the function. We apply the quadratic formula in solving the equation. 3x² - 6x + 4 = 0 x = = Since is not a real number, the equation 3x² - 6x + 4 = 0 has no real root. This means that the parabola y = 3x² - 6x + 4 does not intersect the x-axis. Let us write the equation in the form y = a(x – h)²+ k. y = 3(x² – 2x)² + 4 = 3(x – 1)² + 1 next back contents

How do they compare with the sum and the product of the roots? Did you observe the following? 1. The sum of the roots is equal to the negative of the coefficient of x. r + s = -b / a 2. The product of the roots is equal to the constant term rs = c / a An alternate way of arriving at these relations is as follows Let r and s be the roots of x 2 + bx/a + c/a = 0. Then x - r)(x – s) = 0 Expanding gives, x 2 – rx – sx + rs = 0 or x 2 – (r + s)x + rs = 0 next back contents

- Chapter VI In this chapter, students will be taught how to find solutions to quadratic equations. This lesson assumes students are already familiar with solving simple quadratic equations by hand, and that they have become relatively comfortable using their graphing calculator for solving arithmetic problems and simple algebra problems. Students will also be shown strategies on how to use the keys on the graphing calculator to show a complete graph. <ul><li>TARGET SKILLS: </li></ul><ul><li>At the end of this chapter, students are expected to: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>• use calculator in solving quadratic equation; </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>• solve equation on a calculator; and. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>• improve skills using calculator by solving quadratic equation. </li></ul></ul></ul>Solving Quadratic Equation in a Calculator contents back next
- Lesson 15 Equation on a Calculator <ul><li>OBJECTIVES: </li></ul><ul><li>At the end of this lesson, students are expected to: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>• acquire knowledge using calculator in solving quadratic equation; </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>• resolve equations on a calculator; and </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>• improve skills on solving quadratic equation using a calculator. </li></ul></ul>The simplest way to solve a quadratic equation on a calculator is to use the quadratic formula. x= -b ± <ul><ul><ul><ul><li>where d=b² - 4ac </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><li> 2a </li></ul>As we have seen, if d < 0, there are no real solutions. But f d ≥ 0, then we can use calculator to get the solutions. To solve 3x² + 5x – 7 = 0, first compute the discriminant. d = b² - 4ac = 5² - 4(3)(-7). On an arithmetic calculator, the keystroke sequence for d is, [AC][MC] 4 [x] 3 [x] 7 [=][M+] 5 [x][=][+][MR][=] The display will show the value of the discriminant to be 109, and so the quadratic equation has two distinct roots. To compute the roots, proceed as follows: [AC][MC] 109 [√][M+][MR][-] 5 [+] 2 [x] 3 [=] the first root and contents back next
- 0 [-][MR][-] 5 [+] 2 [ x] 3 [=] the second root. On an algebraic calculator, the keystroke sequence is easier. Recall that the actual roots are: x= -5 + 2(3) x= -5 - 2(3) <ul><li>First, we compute the square root of the discriminant and store it is memory. </li></ul><ul><li>[AC] 5 [2] – 4 [x] 3 [x] 7 [+/-][=][√][Min] </li></ul><ul><li>Then, compute the first root as: </li></ul><ul><li>x 1 = (5 [+/-][+][MR])[÷] (2 [x] 3) [=]; </li></ul><ul><li>and then compute the second root as: </li></ul><ul><li>x 2 = (5[+/-][-][MR])[+] (2 [x] 3)[=]. </li></ul><ul><li>Exercise: </li></ul><ul><li>Find the roots of the following equations. </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>3.5x 2 + 1.2x – 3.2 = 0 </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>7.6 -2.2x – 1.7x 2 = 0 </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>2.5x 2 + 5.6x – 13.5 = 0 </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>x – 77.3 + 2.3x 2 = 0 </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>x 2 - 1000.5 + 32.3 = 0 </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>contents back next
