ok this equation doesn't factor by the most basic of method, have you tried using complete the square, cause that would work
anonymous
  • anonymous
no how would you do that? is there a way that works on all of them?

usually it will tell you how to do it i'll show you the complete the square method if you'd like

ok well firstly i'm gonna divide by 4 so there's no coefficient of x^2, this gives, x^2-x+1/4 (you can see that this would equal (x-1/2)^2 (i can see an answer from here but i'd like to show you the complete the square method as it is used a lot later on) Right, if you have a quadratic of the form x^2+bx+c, you can write it as; (x+b/2)^2-((b/2)^2)+c, so in your case; (x-1/2)^2-(-1/2)^2+1/4 (-1/2)^2 = 1/4 (x-1/2)^2+1/4-1/4 (x-1/2)^2 is your factorised equation
