### Math unit24 solving quadratic equations

1. 1. Unit 24 Solving Quadratic Equations Presentation 1 Factorisation Presentation 2 Using the formula Presentation 3 Summary of Number of Solutions Presentation 4 Completing the Square
2. 2. Unit 24 Solving Quadratic Equations 24.1 Factorisation
3. 3. Example 1 Solve Solution Factorising so either or solution or Example 3 Solve Solution Factorising so either or Example 2 Solve Solution Factorising so either or Example 4 Solve Solution Factorising so there is only one (repeated) solution? ? ? A quadratic equation is of the form and can be solved easily if it factorises. ? ? ? ? ?? ? ?? ? ? ? ?
4. 4. Unit 24 Solving Quadratic Equations 24.2a Using the formula
5. 5. ? There is a formula to solve the quadratic equation The solution is given by Example 1 Using the formula, solve the quadratic equation Giving the solution correct to two decimal places. Solution Here so? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? or To 2 d.p. or ? ??? ?
