1 316 (5-60) Chpter 5 Exponents nd Polynomils 5.9 SOLVING EQUATIONS BY FACTORING In this setion The Zero Ftor Property Applitions helpful hint Note tht the zero ftor property is our seond exmple of getting n equivlent eqution without doing the sme thing to eh side. Wht ws the first? E X A M P L E 1 The tehniques of ftoring n e used to solve equtions involving polynomils tht nnot e solved y the other methods tht you hve lerned. After you lern to solve equtions y ftoring, we will use this tehnique to solve some new pplied prolems in this setion nd in Chpters 6 nd 8. The Zero Ftor Property The eqution 0 indites tht the produt of two unknown numers is 0. But the produt of two rel numers is zero only when one or the other of the numers is 0. So even though we do not know extly the vlues of nd from 0, we do know tht 0 or 0. This ide is lled the zero ftor property. Zero Ftor Property The eqution 0 is equivlent to the ompound eqution 0 or 0. The next exmple shows how to use the zero ftor property to solve n eqution in one vrile. Using the zero ftor property Solve x 2 x We ftor the left-hnd side of the eqution to get produt of two ftors tht re equl to 0. Then we write n equivlent eqution using the zero ftor property. x 2 x 12 0 (x 4)(x 3) 0 Ftor the left-hnd side. x 4 0 or x 3 0 Zero ftor property x 4 or x 3 Solve eh prt of the ompound eqution. Chek tht oth 4 nd 3 stisfy x 2 x If x 4, we get ( 4) 2 ( 4) If x 3, we get (3) So the solution set is 4, 3. The zero ftor property is used only in solving polynomil equtions tht hve zero on one side nd polynomil tht n e ftored on the other side. The polynomils tht we ftored most often were the qudrti polynomils. The equtions tht we will solve most often using the zero ftor property will e qudrti equtions. Qudrti Eqution If,, nd re rel numers, with 0, then the eqution x 2 x 0 is lled qudrti eqution.

2 5.9 Solving Equtions y Ftoring (5-61) 317 M A T H A T W O R K Sems Merdo, professionl odyorder nd 1988 Ntionl Chmpion, hrges the wves off Hwii, Thiti, Indonesi, Mexio, nd Cliforni. In hoosing ord for ompetition nd for the mneuvers he wnts to perform, Merdo ftors in his height nd weight s well s the size, power, nd temperture of the wves he will e riding. In older wter softer, more flexile ord is used; in wrmer wter stiffer ord is hosen. When wves rsh on shore, the ride usully lsts 3 to 5 seonds, nd shorter ord with nrrow til is hosen for greter ontrol. When wves rek long snd r or reef, the ride n sometimes lst s long s 2 minutes, nd strighter ord with more surfe re is hosen so tht the ord will move fster nd llow the rider to pull off more mneuvers. Bsi mneuvers inlude ottom turns, erils, forwrd nd reverse 360 s, nd el rollos. As one of the top 10 odyorders in the world, Merdo helps to design the ords he uses. Performne levels re gretly inresed with fine-tuned equipment nd tehniques, he sys. In Exerise 63 of Setion 5.9 you will find the dimensions of given odyord. BODYBOARD DESIGNER In Chpter 8 we will study qudrti equtions further nd solve qudrti equtions tht nnot e solved y ftoring. Keep the following strtegy in mind when solving equtions y ftoring. study tip We re ll retures of hit. When you find ple in whih you study suessfully, stik with it. Using the sme ple for studying will help you to onentrte nd to ssoite the ple with good studying. Strtegy for Solving Equtions y Ftoring 1. Write the eqution with 0 on the right-hnd side. 2. Ftor the left-hnd side. 3. Use the zero ftor property to get simpler equtions. (Set eh ftor equl to 0.) 4. Solve the simpler equtions. 5. Chek the nswers in the originl eqution. E X A M P L E 2 Solving qudrti eqution y ftoring Solve eh eqution. ) 10x 2 5x ) 3x 6x 2 9 ) Use the steps in the strtegy for solving equtions y ftoring: 10x 2 5x Originl eqution 10x 2 5x 0 Rewrite with zero on the right-hnd side. 5x(2x 1) 0 Ftor the left-hnd side. 5x 0 or 2x 1 0 Zero ftor property x 0 or x 1 Solve for x. 2 The solution set is 0, 1 2. Chek eh solution in the originl eqution.

3 318 (5-62) Chpter 5 Exponents nd Polynomils ) First rewrite the eqution with 0 on the right-hnd side nd the left-hnd side in order of desending exponents: 3x 6x 2 9 Originl eqution 6x 2 3x 9 0 Add 9 to eh side. 2x 2 x 3 0 Divide eh side y 3. (2x 3)(x 1) 0 Ftor. 2x 3 0 or x 1 0 Zero ftor property x 3 or x 1 Solve for x. 2 The solution set is 1, 3 2. Chek eh solution in the originl eqution. CAUTION If we divide eh side of 10x 2 5x y 5x, we get 2x 1, or x 1 2. We do not get x 0. By dividing y 5x we hve lost one of the ftors nd one of the solutions. In the next exmple there re more thn two ftors, ut we n still write n equivlent eqution y setting eh ftor equl to 0. E X A M P L E 3 lultor lose-up To hek, use Y= to enter y 1 2x 3 3x 2 8x 12. Then use the vriles feture (VARS) to find y 1 ( 2), y 1 (3 2), nd y 1 (2).

E X A M P L E 5 helpful hint To prove the Pythgoren theorem, drw two squres with sides of length, nd prtition them s shown. Are of room Ronld s living room is 2 feet longer thn it is wide, nd its re is 168 squre feet. Wht re the dimensions of the room? Let x e the width nd x 2 e the length. See Figure 5.1. Beuse the re of retngle is the length times the width, we n write the eqution x(x 2) Erse the four tringles in eh piture. Sine we strted with equl res, we must hve equl res fter ersing the tringles: x FIGURE 5.1 x 2 We solve the eqution y ftoring: x 2 2x (x 12)(x 14) 0 x 12 0 or x 14 0 x 12 or x 14 Beuse the width of room is positive numer, we disregrd the solution x 14. We use x 12 nd get width of 12 feet nd length of 14 feet. Chek this nswer y multiplying 12 nd 14 to get 168. Applitions involving qudrti equtions often require theorem lled the Pythgoren theorem. This theorem sttes tht in ny right tringle the sum of the squres of the lengths of the legs is equl to the length of the hypotenuse squred. The Pythgoren Theorem The tringle shown is right tringle if nd only if Hypotenuse Legs We use the Pythgoren theorem in the next exmple.

To e sure tht the region ws retngle, she mesured the digonls nd found tht they were 5 meters eh. (If the opposite sides of qudrilterl re equl nd the digonls re equl, then the qudrilterl is retngle.) Wht re the length nd width of the retngle? The perimeter of retngle is twie the length plus twie the width, P 2L 2W. Beuse the perimeter is 14 meters, the sum of one length nd one width is 7 meters. If we let x represent the width, then 7 x is the length. We use the Pythgoren theorem to get reltionship mong the length, width, nd digonl. See Figure 5.2. x 2 (7 x) x x x x 2 14x 24 0 Pythgoren theorem Simplify. Simplify. x 2 7x 12 0 Divide eh side y 2.

However, those re identil retngles. The retngle is 3 meters y 4 meters. WARM-UPS True or flse? Explin your nswer. 1. The eqution (x 1)(x 3) 12 is equivlent to x 1 3 or x 3 4. Flse 2.
