what can i multiply to get 3 that i can add to get 7...nothing right?

the discriminant is \(\large\color{black}{ \displaystyle (b)^2~-4~\times~ (a)~\times~(c) }\) \(\large\color{black}{ \displaystyle (-7)^2~-4~\times~ (2)~\times~(3) }\) \(\large\color{black}{ \displaystyle 49~-24 }\) \(\large\color{black}{ \displaystyle 25 }\)
SolomonZelman
  • SolomonZelman
the discriminant is a positive integer and that means that you can factor your equation.
anonymous
  • anonymous
so i use the formula \[-b \pm \sqrt{b-4(a)(c)/2}\]
SolomonZelman
  • SolomonZelman
yes, you can do that too \(\large\color{black}{ \displaystyle {\rm x}=\frac{-b\pm\sqrt{b-4(a)(c) \color{white}{\LARGE |} }}{2a} }\)

-7/4 +or- 25/4?
anonymous
  • anonymous
hmmm
SolomonZelman
  • SolomonZelman
i don't think it is correct
anonymous
  • anonymous
let me redo
SolomonZelman
  • SolomonZelman
also, wouldn't factoring be a more efficient method than quadratic formula ?
SolomonZelman
  • SolomonZelman
but, if you want to use the quadratic formula, then sure, go ahead...
anonymous
  • anonymous
i tried factoring, and what i am being taught, is teaching the quadraic formula
SolomonZelman
  • SolomonZelman
ok, what I will suggest is to do it both methods.
anonymous
  • anonymous
show me how to factor it
SolomonZelman
  • SolomonZelman
ok.
SolomonZelman
  • SolomonZelman
Have you ever factored an equation before?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes

\(\color{blue}{\text{Originally Posted by}}\) @jordanawest22 what can i multiply to get 3 that i can add to get 7...nothing right? \(\color{blue}{\text{End of Quote}}\) leading coefficient is not one you need to find two number if you multiply you should product of AC that's why...you can't find any number to get 7
SolomonZelman
  • SolomonZelman
how did you do it. was it like you were sort of "guessing" ?
SolomonZelman
  • SolomonZelman
if so, then we can start doing the same thing.... it would be hard

im doing \[2x ^{2} - 7x- 3...\right? so now i need \to split up 7 ...oh i did the oppsite my mistake\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
wait no i didnt
anonymous
  • anonymous
what can i multiply to get 3 that i can add to get 7, the only numbers that i can multiply to get 3 is, 1, and 3...and-1, and -3, but no matter what i do theydont make 7??
anonymous
  • anonymous
should i divide all by 2?
SolomonZelman
  • SolomonZelman
\(\large\color{black}{ \displaystyle 2x^2-7x+3=0 }\) at first we will write the parenthesis, and then we will start filling everything in as we go. \(\large\color{black}{ \displaystyle (~~~~~~~~~~~)(~~~~~~~~~~)=0 }\) you have to have \(\rm 2x^2\) as your first term and that you can get from a product of \(\rm x\cdot 2x\) So here, come the first two terms \(\large\color{black}{ \displaystyle (2x~~~~~~~~~)(x~~~~~~~~~)=0 }\) right now when we expand, we get: \(\large\color{black}{ \displaystyle 2x^2+?+?=0 }\) we don't know (yet) what we get for the rest of the terms, but the first term is going to be \(2x^2\)

(i am writing all the thinking behind it, but once you practice more, and perhaps if you watch some videos about it, you will find it easy. )

SolomonZelman
  • SolomonZelman
i don't really get what you are trying to do, but even though I don't understand it, it looks incorrect.
anonymous
  • anonymous
im trying to do....\[2x ^{2} -?\pm?+ 3....\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
onc ei get that then i can do (2x )(x )
anonymous
  • anonymous
and inorder to get thos 2 numbers i need to no the numbers that multiply to get 3 that can add to get to 7
SolomonZelman
  • SolomonZelman
if you go that way, then \(\large\color{black}{ \displaystyle 2x^2-7x+3=0 }\) \(\large\color{black}{ \displaystyle 2x^2-4x-3x+3=0 }\) \(\large\color{black}{ \displaystyle \color{red}{2x^2-4x}\color{blue}{-3x+3}=0 }\)
SolomonZelman
  • SolomonZelman
and you can factor the part in red and in blue separately (i labeled just for vision, not because it is a math denotation) and then factor it all togther
anonymous
  • anonymous
for example \[x ^{2} + 4x +4.... would then be x^2 +2x +2x + 4\]
SolomonZelman
  • SolomonZelman
yes, I did that above
anonymous
  • anonymous
but -4x, times 3x doesnt equal 3?
SolomonZelman
  • SolomonZelman
i rewrote -7x as -4x-3x
SolomonZelman
  • SolomonZelman
I am just wondering who taught you .... you are going from some unknown direction. I really don't get what you are doing here from a mathematical standpoint. this should help https://www.khanacademy.org/math/algebra-basics/core-algebra-expressions/core-algebra-manipulating-expressions/v/factoring-algebraic-expressions

Nnesha
  • Nnesha
2 numbers are -6 times -1 = 6 -6-1 = -7 now remember LEADing coefficient is not one so you can't write (x + 1st number)(x+2nd number ) |dw:1433898717154:dw| carry down first and last term and then group method! so ur method is right but you don't know that you have to multiply A times C
