1 6.6 Solving Qudrti Equtions y Ftoring (6 31) 307 In this setion The Zero Ftor Property Applitions 6.6 SOLVING QUADRATIC EQUATIONS BY FACTORING The tehniques of ftoring n e used to solve equtions involving polynomils. These equtions nnot e solved y the other methods tht you hve lerned. After you lern to solve equtions y ftoring, you will use this tehnique to solve some new types of prolems. The Zero Ftor Property In this hpter you lerned to ftor polynomils suh s x x 6. The eqution x x 6 0 is lled qudrti eqution. helpful hint The prefix qud mens four. So why is polynomil with three terms lled qudrti? Perhps it is euse qudrti polynomil n e ftored into produt of two inomils, whih ontin totl of four terms. Qudrti Eqution If,, nd re rel numers with 0, then x x 0 is lled qudrti eqution. The min ide used to solve qudrti equtions is the zero ftor property, whih sys tht if produt is zero, then one or the other of the ftors is zero. The Zero Ftor Property The eqution 0 is equivlent to 0 or 0. In our first exmple, we use the zero ftor property nd ftoring to redue qudrti eqution into two liner equtions. Solving the liner equtions gives us the solutions to the qudrti eqution. E X A M P L E 1 Using the zero ftor property Solve x x 6 0. First ftor the polynomil on the left side: x x 6 0 (x 3)(x ) 0 Ftor the left side. x 3 0 or x 0 Zero ftor property x 3 or x Solve eh eqution. We now hek tht 3 nd stisfy the originl eqution.

2 308 (6 3) Chpter 6 Ftoring For x 3: For x : x x 6 ( 3) ( 3) 6 x x 6 () () The solutions to x x 6 0 re 3 nd. A sentene suh s x 3 or x, whih is mde up of two or more equtions onneted with the word or is lled ompound eqution. In the next exmple we gin solve qudrti eqution y using the zero ftor property to write ompound eqution. E X A M P L E Using the zero ftor property Solve the eqution 3x 3x. First rewrite the eqution with 0 on the right-hnd side: 3x 3x 3x 3x 0 Add 3x to eh side. 3x(x 1) 0 3x 0 or x 1 0 Zero ftor property x 0 or x 1 Solve eh eqution. Ftor the left-hnd side. Chek 0 nd 1 in the originl eqution 3x 3x. For x 0: For x 1: 3(0) 3(0) 3( 1) 3( 1) There re two solutions to the originl eqution, 0 nd 1. CAUTION If in Exmple you divide eh side of 3x 3x y 3x, you would get x 1 ut not the solution x 0. For this reson we usully do not divide eh side of n eqution y vrile. The si strtegy for solving n eqution y ftoring follows. helpful hint We hve seen qudrti polynomils tht nnot e ftored. So not ll qudrti equtions n e solved y ftoring. Methods for solving ll qudrti equtions re presented in Chpter 10. Strtegy for Solving n Eqution y Ftoring 1. Rewrite the eqution with 0 on the right-hnd side.. Ftor the left-hnd side ompletely. 3. Use the zero ftor property to get simple liner equtions. 4. Solve the liner equtions. 5. Chek the nswers in the originl eqution. 6. Stte the solution(s) to the originl eqution.

3 6.6 Solving Qudrti Equtions y Ftoring (6 33) 309 E X A M P L E 3 Using the zero ftor property Solve (x 1)(x 1) 14. study tip To write the eqution with 0 on the right-hnd side, multiply the inomils on the left nd then sutrt 14 from eh side: Set short-term gols nd rewrd yourself for omplishing them. When you hve solved 10 prolems, tke short rek nd listen to your fvorite musi. (x 1)(x 1) 14 Originl eqution x x 1 14 Multiply the inomils. x x 15 0 Sutrt 14 from eh side. (x 5)(x 3) 0 Ftor. x 5 0 or x 3 0 Zero ftor property x 5 or x 3 Chek 5 x 5 or x 3 nd 3 in the originl eqution: ( 5 1) 5 ( 4) 7 14 ( 3 1)(3 1) (7)() 14 So the solutions re 5 nd 3. CAUTION In Exmple 3 we strted with produt of two ftors equl to 14. Beuse there re mny pirs of ftors tht hve produt of 14, we nnot mke ny onlusion out the ftors. If the produt of two ftors is 0, then we n onlude tht one or the other ftor is 0. If perfet squre trinomil ours in qudrti eqution, then there re two identil ftors of the trinomil. In this se it is not neessry to set oth ftors equl to zero. The solution n e found from one ftor. E X A M P L E 4 An eqution with repeted ftor Solve 5x 30x Notie tht the trinomil on the left-hnd side hs ommon ftor: 5x 30x (x 6x 9) 0 Ftor out the GCF. 5(x 3) 0 Ftor the perfet squre trinomil. (x 3) 0 Divide eh side y 5. x 3 0 Zero ftor property x 3

4 310 (6 34) Chpter 6 Ftoring You should hek tht 3 stisfies the originl eqution. Even though x 3 ours twie s ftor, it is not neessry to write x 3 0 or x 3 0. The only solution to the eqution is 3. CAUTION To simplify 5(x 3) 0 in Exmple 4, we divided eh side y 5. If we hd used the zero ftor property, we would hve gotten 5 0 or (x 3) 0. Sine 5 0 hs no solution, we n ignore it nd ontinue to solve (x 3) 0. If the left-hnd side of the eqution hs more thn two ftors, we n write n equivlent eqution y setting eh ftor equl to zero. E X A M P L E 5 helpful hint Compre the numer of solutions in Exmples 1 through 5 to the degree of the polynomil. The numer of rel solutions to ny polynomil eqution is less thn or equl to the degree of the polynomil. This ft is known s the fundmentl theorem of lger. An eqution with three solutions Solve x 3 x 8x 4 0. We n ftor the four-term polynomil y grouping: x 3 x 8x 4 0 x (x 1) 4(x 1) 0 Ftor out the ommon ftors. (x 4)(x 1) 0 Ftor out x 1. (x )(x )(x 1) 0 Differene of two squres x 0 or x 0 or x 1 0 Zero ftor property x or x or x 1 Solve eh eqution. You should hek tht ll three numers stisfy the originl eqution. The solutions to this eqution re, 1, nd. Applitions There re mny prolems tht n e solved y equtions like those we hve just disussed. E X A M P L E 6 Are of grden Merid s grden hs retngulr shpe with length tht is 1 foot longer thn twie the width. If the re of the grden is 55 squre feet, then wht re the dimensions of the grden? If x represents the width of the grden, then x 1 represents the length. See Fig Beuse the re of retngle is the length times the width, we n write the eqution x(x 1) 55. x 1 ft FIGURE 6.1 x ft

5 6.6 Solving Qudrti Equtions y Ftoring (6 35) 311 helpful hint To prove the Pythgoren theorem, drw two squres with sides of length, nd prtition them s shown. We must hve zero on the right-hnd side of the eqution to use the zero ftor property. So we rewrite the eqution nd then ftor: x x 55 0 (x 11)(x 5) 0 Ftor. x 11 0 or x 5 0 Zero ftor property 11 x or x 5 The width is ertinly not 1 1. So we use x 5 to get the length: x 1 (5) 1 11 We hek y multiplying 11 feet nd 5 feet to get the re of 55 squre feet. So the width is 5 ft, nd the length is 11 ft. The next pplition involves theorem from geometry lled the Pythgoren theorem. This theorem sys tht in ny right tringle the sum of the squres of the lengths of the legs is equl to the squre of the length of the hypotenuse. Ersing the four identil tringles from eh piture will sutrt the sme mount of re from eh originl squre. Sine we strted with equl res, we will hve equl res fter ersing the tringles: The Pythgoren Theorem The tringle shown in Fig. 6. is right tringle if nd only if. Hypotenuse FIGURE 6.

Wht re the length nd width? 5 x + 1 FIGURE 6.3 x If x represents the width of the retngle, then x 1 represents the length. Beuse the two sides re the legs of right tringle, we n use the Pythgoren theorem to get reltionship etween the length, width, nd digonl. See Fig x (x 1) 5 Pythgoren theorem x x x 1 5 Simplify. x x 4 0 x x 1 0 Divide eh side y. (x 3)(x 4) 0 x 3 0 or x 4 0 Zero ftor property x 3 or x 4 The length nnot e negtive. x 1 4

6 31 (6 36) Chpter 6 Ftoring To hek this nswer, we ompute 3 4 5, or So the retngle is 3 meters y 4 meters. CAUTION The hypotenuse is the longest side of right tringle. So if the lengths of the sides of right tringle re 5 meters, 1 meters, nd 13 meters, then the length of the hypotenuse is 13 meters, nd M A T H A T W O R K Cn you suessfully invest money nd t the sme time e soilly responsile?
