1. 9.1 Square Roots and the Pythagorean Theorem By definition Ö25 is the number you would multiply times itself to get 25 for an answer. Because we are familiar with multiplication, we know that Ö25 = 5 Numbers like 25, which have whole numbers for their square roots, are called perfect squares You need to memorize at least the first 15 perfect squares

3. 9.1 Square Roots and the Pythagorean Theorem Every whole number has a square root Most numbers are not perfect squares, and so their square roots are not whole numbers. Most numbers that are not perfect squares have square roots that are irrational numbers Irrational numbers can be represented by decimals that do not terminate and do not repeat The decimal approximations of whole numbers can be determined using a calculator

14. 9.3 Graphing Quadratic Equations y = ax2 + bx + c

15. y Vertex x Vertex 9.3 Graphing Quadratic Equations The graph of a quadratic function is a parabola. A parabola can open up or down. If the parabola opens up, the lowest point is called the vertex. If the parabola opens down, the vertex is the highest point. NOTE: if the parabola opened left or right it would not be a function!

16. y a > 0 x a < 0 9.3 Graphing Quadratic Equations The parabola will open up when the a value is positive. The standard form of a quadratic function is y = ax2 + bx + c The parabola will open down when the a value is negative.

17. Line of Symmetry y x 9.3 Graphing Quadratic Equations Parabolas have a symmetric property to them. If we drew a line down the middle of the parabola, we could fold the parabola in half. We call this line the line of symmetry. Or, if we graphed one side of the parabola, we could “fold” (or REFLECT) it over, the line of symmetry to graph the other side. The line of symmetry ALWAYS passes through the vertex.

18. 9.3 Graphing Quadratic Equations When a quadratic function is in standard form For example… Find the line of symmetry of y = 3x2 – 18x + 7 y = ax2 + bx + c, The equation of the line of symmetry is Using the formula… This is best read as … the opposite of b divided by the quantity of 2 times a. Thus, the line of symmetry is x = 3.

19. 9.3 Graphing Quadratic Equations y = –2x2 + 8x –3 We know the line of symmetry always goes through the vertex. STEP 1: Find the line of symmetry Thus, the line of symmetry gives us the x – coordinate of the vertex. STEP 2: Plug the x – value into the original equation to find the y value. y = –2(4)+ 8(2) –3 y = –2(2)2 + 8(2) –3 To find the y – coordinate of the vertex, we need to plug the x – value into the original equation. y = –8+ 16 –3 y = 5 Therefore, the vertex is (2 , 5)

20. 9.3 Graphing Quadratic Equations The standard form of a quadratic function is given by y = ax2 + bx + c STEP 1: Find the line of symmetry STEP 2: Find the vertex STEP 3: Find two other points and reflect them across the line of symmetry. Then connect the five points with a smooth curve.

22. y x 9.3 Graphing Quadratic Equations Let's Graph ONE! Try … y = 2x2 – 4x – 1 STEP 2: Find the vertex Since the x – value of the vertex is given by the line of symmetry, we need to plug in x = 1 to find the y – value of the vertex. Thus the vertex is (1 ,–3).

24. 9.3 Graphs of Quadratic Equations For y = -x2 - 2x + 8 identify each term, graph the equation, find the vertex, and find the solutions of the equation. -Vertex: x =(-b/2a) x= -(-2/2(-1)) x= 2/(-2) x= -1 Solve for y: y = -x2 -2x + 8 y = -(-1)2 -(2)(-1) + 8 y = -(1) + 2 + 8 y = 9 Vertex is (-1, 9)

25. 9.4 The Quadratic Formula The quadratic formula allows you to find the roots of a quadratic equation (if they exist) even if the quadratic equation does not factorise. The formula states that for a quadratic equation of the form : ax2 + bx + c = 0 The roots of the quadratic equation are given by :

27. Example 1 Use the quadratic formula to solve the equation : x2 + 5x + 6 = 0 Solution: x2 + 5x + 6= 0 a = 1 b = 5 c = 6 x = - 2 or x = - 3 These are the roots of the equation.

28. Example 3 Use the quadratic formula to solve the equation : 8x2 - 22x + 15= 0 Solution: 8x2 - 22x + 15= 0 a = 8 b = -22 c = 15 x = 3/2 or x = 5/4 These are the roots of the equation.

29. Example 4 Use the quadratic formula to solve for x to 2 decimal places. 2x2 + 3x - 7= 0 Solution: 2x2 + 3x – 7 = 0 a = 2 b = 3 c = - 7 x = 1.27 or x = - 2.77 These are the roots of the equation.

35. 9.6 Graphing Quadratic Inequalities • Draw the graph of the equation obtained by replacing the inequality sign by an equal sign. Use a dashed line if the inequality is < or >. Use a solid line if the inequality is ≤ or ≥. • Check a point in each of the two regions of the plane determined by the graph of the equation. If the point satisfies the inequality, then shade the region containing the point. Steps for Drawing the Graph of an Inequality in Two Variables
