Quadratic EquationsHappy Easter everyone! Aloha Nui means Goodbye. #2 20060417 08:55:09
Re: Quadratic EquationsAre they just saying that for the sake of the example that (x + 3)^2  2 = 4? That's mighty confusing since the next 50 pages that often use factorising and completing the square assume that f(x) = 0. Aloha Nui means Goodbye. #3 20060417 14:41:32
Re: Quadratic EquationsThis is a traditional way to solve a quadratic equation. hence Actually, given a equation of standard form, the explicit solution fomula is derived by this procedure ax²+bx+c=0 a(x+b/2a)²=b²/4c ...... X'(yXβ)=0 #5 20060422 11:34:28
