Solving quadratic equations by factoring1
Solving Quadratic Equations by Factoring

  • The quadratic equation is written in the form ax2 + bx + c = 0

  • To solve quadratic equations by factoring we use the Zero Product Principle

    If AB = 0 then A = 0 or B = 0

     Where A and B are two quantities


Solving quadratic equations by factoring2
Solving Quadratic Equations by Factoring

Example: Solve each of the following

quadratic equations.

  • x2 – 3x – 40 = 0

    (x – 8)(x + 5) = 0

    x – 8 = 0 or x + 5 = 0  Zero Product Principle

    x = 8 or x = -5

    The solution set s.s. = {8, -5}

b) 8x2 = 15 – 14x

8x2 + 14x – 15 = 0

(4x – 3)(2x + 5) = 0

4x – 3 = 0 or 2x + 5 = 0

c) 3x2 – 9x = 0

3x(x – 3) = 0

3x = 0 or x – 3 = 0

x = 0 or x = 3

s.s. = {0, 3}
