A quadratic involving x and y is usually in the form 'y = ax2 + bx + c'. This form is y in terms of x, so we must rearrange it.

y = ax2 + bx + c

y/a = x2 + bx/a + c/a

y/a = x2 + bx/a + d + e, where c/a = d + e, e = (b/a)2

y/a - e = x2 + bx/a + d

y/a -e = (x + b/a)2

√(y/a - e) = x + b/a

√(y/a - e) - b/a = x

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

Graph the equation then find the x intercepts.


How do you solve a biquadratic equation?

Equations of the form z^4+az^2+a_0 are known as biquadratic equations. They are quartic equations. In general they can be solved by reducing them to a quadratic equation where x=z^2 is the variable. Then you can use the quadratic formula or factor. So plugging in x to the biquadratic giives us x^2+ax+a_0.


What is the graph of a quadratic formula?

In general, quadratic equations have graphs that are parabolas. The quadratic formula tells us how to find the roots of a quadratic equations. If those roots are real, they are the x intercepts of the parabola.


How do you find a gradient of a linear equation if you are told that it is a tangent to another quadratic equation?

Solve the two equations simultaneously for x. You will probably need the y value as well.Differentiate the quadratic equation.Find the value of the derivative when you substitute the value for x (from step 1) into the derivative.That is the gradient.Solve the two equations simultaneously for x.

What is the quadratic formula used for?

The quadratic formula is used all the time to solve quadratic equations, often when the factors are fractions or decimals but sometimes as the first choice of solving method. The quadratic formula is sometimes faster than completing the square or any other factoring methods. Quadratic formula find: -x-intercept -where the parabola cross the x-axis -roots -solutions


Do linear equations contain x squared?

No, linear equations don't have x2. Equation with x and y are usually linear equations. Equations with either x2 or y2 (but never both) are usually quadratic equations.


How does factoring help solve quadratic equations?

Well, that's one method to solve the quadratic equation. Here is an example (using the symbol "^" for power): solve x^2 - 5x + 6 = 0 Step 1: Convert the equation to a form in which the right side is equal to zero. (Already done in this example.) Step 2: Factor the left side. In this case, (x - 3) (x - 2) = 0 Step 3: Use the fact that if a product is zero, at least one of its factors must be zero. This lets you convert the equation to two equations; x - 3 = 0 OR x - 2 = 0 Step 4: Solve each of the two equations.
