Determine the Number and Type of Solutions of a Quadratic Equation by Using the Discriminant. 3 Solve Problems Modeled by Quadratic Equations. Solving Quadratic Equations by Using the Quadratic Formula Any quadratic equation can be solved by completing the square. Since the same sequence of steps is repeated each time we complete the square, let s complete the square for a general quadratic equation, a + b + c 0, a 0. By doing so, we find a pattern for the solutions of a quadratic equation known as the quadratic formula. Recall that to complete the square for an equation such as a + b + c 0, we first divide both sides by the coefficient of. a + b + c 0 + b a + c a 0 Divide both sides by a, the coefficient of. + b a - c a Subtract the constant c from both sides. a Net, find the square of half b, the coefficient of. a a b a b b a and a b a b b a Add this result to both sides of the equation. + b a + b a - c a + b a + b a + b a -c # a a # a + b a + b a b - ac a a + b a b b - ac a + b a + b a { b - ac B a + b a { b - ac a - b a { b - ac a -b { b - ac a Add b to both sides. a Find a common denominator on the right side. Simplify the right side. Factor the perfect square trinomial on the left side. Apply the square root property. Simplify the radical. Subtract b from both sides. a Simplify. This equation identifies the solutions of the general quadratic equation in standard form and is called the quadratic formula. It can be used to solve any equation written in standard form a + b + c 0 as long as a is not 0. Quadratic Formula A quadratic equation written in the form a + b + c 0 has the solutions -b { b - ac a

2 8 CHAPTER 8 Quadratic Equations and Functions EXAMPLE Solve for. Solution This equation is in standard form, so a 3, b, and c 5. Substitute these values into the quadratic formula. -b { b - ac a - { - 35 # 3 - { { { or Quadratic formula Use a 3, b, and c The solutions are - 3 and -5, or the solution set is e -, -5 f Solve for. Helpful Hint To replace a, b, and c correctly in the quadratic formula, write the quadratic equation in standard form a + b + c 0. EXAMPLE Solve: - 3. Solution First write the equation in standard form by subtracting 3 from both sides Now a, b -, and c - 3. Substitute these values into the quadratic formula. The solutions are + 0 -b { b - ac a - - { # { + { 0 { 0 { 0 # { 0 and - 0, or the solution set is e - 0, + 0 f. Solve: 3-8. Helpful Hint To simplify the epression { 0 in the preceding eample, note that is factored out of both terms of the numerator before simplifying. { 0 { 0 # { 0

Solution We could use the quadratic formula with a, b -, and c. Instead, we find a simpler, equivalent standard form equation whose coefficients are not fractions. Multiply both sides of the equation by the LCD to clear fractions. a m - m + b # 0 m - m + 0 Simplify. Substitute a, b -, and c into the quadratic formula and simplify. m - - { - - # { - 8 The solutions are + and -. 3 Solve: { 8 { { { EXAMPLE Solve: Solution The equation in standard form is Thus, let a 3, b, and c 3 in the quadratic formula. - { - 33 # 3 - { { { i35 The solutions are - + i35 and - - i35. Solve: - -. CONCEPT CHECK What is the first step in solving using the quadratic formula? Answer to Concept Checks: a Write the equation in standard form. In Eample, the equation had real roots, - and -5.In Eample, 3 the equation (written in standard form) had no real roots. How do their related graphs compare? Recall that the -intercepts of f occur

4 88 CHAPTER 8 Quadratic Equations and Functions where f 0 or where Since this equation has real roots, the graph has -intercepts. Similarly, since the equation has no real roots, the graph of f has no -intercepts. -intercepts y y ( 5, 0) ( a, 0) 5 f() f() no -intercept Using the Discriminant In the quadratic formula, -b { b - ac, the radicand b - ac is called the a discriminant because, by knowing its value, we can discriminate among the possible number and type of solutions of a quadratic equation. Possible values of the discriminant and their meanings are summarized net. Discriminant The following table corresponds the discriminant b - ac of a quadratic equation of the form a + b + c 0 with the number and type of solutions of the equation. b ac Positive Zero Negative Number and Type of Solutions Two real solutions One real solution Two comple but not real solutions EXAMPLE 5 Use the discriminant to determine the number and type of solutions of each quadratic equation. a b c Solution a. In + + 0, a, b, and c. Thus, b - ac - 0 Since b - ac 0, this quadratic equation has one real solution. b. In this equation, a 3, b 0, c. Then b - ac Since b - ac is negative, the quadratic equation has two comple but not real solutions. c. In this equation, a, b -7, and c -. Then b - ac Since b - ac is positive, the quadratic equation has two real solutions. 5 Use the discriminant to determine the number and type of solutions of each quadratic equation. a b c

5 Section 8. Solving Quadratic Equations by the Quadratic Formula 89 The discriminant helps us determine the number and type of solutions of a quadratic equation, a + b + c 0. Recall from Section 5.8 that the solutions of this equation are the same as the -intercepts of its related graph f( a + b + c. This means that the discriminant of a + b + c 0 also tells us the number of -intercepts for the graph of f a + b + c or, equivalently, y a + b + c. Graph of f a b c or y a b c b ac 0, f () has two -intercepts y b ac 0, f () has one -intercept y b ac 0, f () has no -intercepts y 3 Solving Problems Modeled by Quadratic Equations The quadratic formula is useful in solving problems that are modeled by quadratic equations.
