for these three equations
x^2-4x+3=0
x^2-7x+2=20
x^2-3x=1
solve at least one by factoring
solve at least one by using the quadratic formula
solve the last one with either of the two options

solve the second one by factoring and the last one by factoring also the first one you need to solve with quad eq.

- anonymous

First of all they all need to = 0.
The first two should be factoring.. the last one is quadratic formula.

- anonymous

x^2 - 4x + 3 = 0 Hint (3 * 1 = 3) (3 + 1 = 4)

1. (x - 3)(x - 1)

- anonymous

yea hes right i copied in diff order

- anonymous

x^2 - 7x + 2 = 20
x^2 - 7x - 18 = 0 Factors of 18 that subtract to give you 7
What are they?

- anonymous

x^2 - 3x - 1 = 0 the reason you use the quadratic formula is because there are no factors of 1 that subtract to give you 3.

- anonymous

Confused.. what are the solutions to #1 if (x - 3)(x - 1) = 0

- anonymous

3 and 1????

- anonymous

Very good

- anonymous

Now on the 2nd one... the factors of 18 are
1 * 18
2 * 9
3 * 6
which pair subtracts to give you 7

- anonymous

2 and 9

- anonymous

good so you have (x - 9)(x + 2) = 0
what would be your answers for x

- anonymous

9 and-2

- anonymous

Very good.
Now we need to do the quadratic formula.. do you know what that is? yes/no

- anonymous

i think so
ax^2+bx+c

- anonymous

well.. you have to get it in this form first.. so we have
x^2 - 3x - 1 = 0
what are
a?
b?
c?

- anonymous

a=1
b=-3
c=-1

- anonymous

Good.
the formula is
x = -b +- sqrt(b^2 - 4ac) all over 2a
Have you seen this the +- means a + with a - sign under it.

- anonymous

yes

- anonymous

-b I like to read as the opposite of b so the opposite of -3 is +3

- anonymous

x = 3 +- sqrt((-3)^2 - 4(1)(-1)
------------------------
2(1)

- anonymous

x = 3 +- sqrt(9 +4)
-------------
2
do you see how I got this? the (-4)(1)(-1) is a + 4

- anonymous

yes

- anonymous

OK.. so your answer is
x = 3 +- sqrt(13)
-----------
2

- anonymous

so 4.80 and 1.20

- anonymous

I don't think so..

- anonymous

If you are using a calculator put in
(3 + sqrt(13))/2
(3 - sqrt(13))/2

- anonymous

3.307

- anonymous

-3.027

- anonymous

Oops.. -.3027

- myininaya

but those aren't the answers those are approximations since the sqrt(13) is irrational
