Warm UpWarm Up

Solve each equation by graphing the related function.

1) x2 - 49 = 0

2) x2 = x + 12

3) - x2 + 8x = 15

CONFIDENTIAL 3

You have solved quadratic equations bygraphing. Another method used to solvequadratic equations is to factor and use

the Zero Product Property.

Zero Product PropertyZero Product Property

Notice that when writing a quadratic function as its related quadratic equation,

you replace y with 0. So y = 0.

y = ax2 + bx + c

0 = ax2 + bx + c

ax2 + bx + c = 0

CONFIDENTIAL 4

One way to solve a quadratic equation in standard form is to graph the related function and find the x-values where y = 0. In other words, find the zeros of the related function. Recall that a quadratic function

may have two, one, or no zeros.

Using the Zero Product PropertyUsing the Zero Product Property

WORDS NUMBERS ALGEBRA

If the product of two quantities equals zero,

at least one of thequantities equals zero.

3 (0) = 0

0(4) = 0

If ab = 0,

then a = 0 or b = 0.

If a quadratic equation is written in standard form, a x 2 + bx + c = 0,

then to solve the equation, you may need to factor before using the

Zero Product Property.

Use the Zero Product Property.

Solve each equation.

The solutions are -4 and 2.

x = -4 or x = 2

Factor the trinomial.

(x + 4) (x - 2) = 0

x + 4 = 0 or x - 2 = 0

CONFIDENTIAL 11

Check: Graph the related quadratic function. The zeros of the related function should be the

same as the solutions from factoring.

4 and 2, the same as the solutions from factoring.

CONFIDENTIAL 12

C) x2 + 2x + 1 = 0

Both factors result in the same solution, so there is one solution, -1.

x = -1 or x = -1

Factor the trinomial.(x + 1) (x + 1) = 0

x + 1 = 0 or x + 1 = 0

CONFIDENTIAL 13

Sports ApplicationSports ApplicationThe height of a diver above the water during a dive can be modeled by h = -16t2 + 8t + 48, where h is

height in feet and t is time in seconds. Find the time it takes for the diver to reach the water.

h = -16t2 + 8t + 48

0 = -16t2 + 8t + 48

Use the Zero Product Property.

Solve each equation.

Factor the trinomial.

The diver reaches the water when h = 0.

Factor out the GCF, -8.0 = -8(2t2 - t - 6)

0 = -8(2t + 3) (t -2)

-8 ≠ 0, 2t + 3 = 0 or t - 2 = 0

2t = -3 or t = 2

t = -3 2

Since time cannot be negative, (-3/2 ) does not make sense in this situation.
