SG – Factoring and the Finding the Root
1. What steps do you use to factor a quadratic?
2. What is the quadratic formula?
3. How do you know when to use the quadratic formula rather than factoring?
4. What is the discriminant and what does it tell you?
5. What words are synonyms of x-intercept? (Hint-there are 3).
Factor the quadratics below, and solve for the root.
6. 𝑥 2 + 7𝑥 + 6=0
9.
7. 𝑦 = 𝑥 2 + 3𝑥 − 10
10.
𝑓(𝑥) = 49𝑦 2 + 28𝑦 + 4
11.
𝑦 = 2𝑥 2 − 16𝑥 + 24
8. 0=𝑥 2 − 49
𝑦 = 3𝑥 2 − 16𝑥 + 5
