Quadratic Functions(2)

Solving quadratic equations through factorising.

Checking to see if a quadratic equation will factorise.


Solving through factorisation

Solving a quadratic equation through factorisation is usually the first choice method as it is the easiest.

However, not all quadratic equations factorise and if they don’t, you need to use a different method.


Trick

If you substitute the values of a, b and c into the expression b2 – 4ac and you get a square number then the equation definitely factorises, otherwise, it doesn’t.


Trick – an example

a=5b=14c=-3

b2 – 4ac

Discriminant

(14)2 – 4 x (5) x (-3)

196 – (-60) = 256

This is a square number, so quadratic does factorise
