1 DA2SE_73_09.qd 0/8/0 :3 Page Factored Form LESSON 9.4 So far you have worked with quadratic equations in verte form and general form. This lesson will introduce you to another form of quadratic equation, the factored form: Mathematicians assume the right to choose, within the limits of logical contradiction, what path they please in reaching their results. y a r r2 This form helps you identify the roots, r and r2, of an equation. In the investigation you ll discover connections between the equation in factored form and its graph. You ll also use rectangle diagrams to convert the factored form to the general form and vice versa. Then in the eample you ll learn how to use a special property to find the roots of an equation. HENRY ADAMS Investigation Getting to the Root of the Matter First you ll find the roots of an equation in factored form from its graph. You will need graph paper Step On your calculator, graph the equations y 3 and y 4 at the same time. Step 2 What is the -intercept of each equation you graphed in Step? Step 3 Graph y ( 3)( 4) on the same set of aes as before. Describe the graph. Where are the -intercepts of this graph? Step 4 Epand y ( 3)( 4) to general form. Graph the equation in general form on the same set of aes. What do you notice about this parabola and its -intercepts? Is the graph of y ( 3)( 4) a parabola? LESSON 9.4 Factored Form

2 Step Step Step 7 Step 8 Now you ll learn how to find the roots from the general form. Complete the rectangle diagram whose sum is 2. A few parts on the diagram have been labeled to get you started. Write the multiplication epression of the rectangle diagram in factored form. Use a graph or table to check that this form is equivalent to the original epression. Find the roots of the equation 0 2 from its factored form. Rewrite each equation in factored form by completing a rectangle diagram. Then find the roots of each. Check your work by making a graph. a b. 0 2 c d EXAMPLE A Now you have learned three forms of a quadratic equation. You can enter each of these forms into your calculator to check that they are equivalent. Here are three equivalent equations that describe the height in meters, y, of an object in motion for seconds after being thrown upward. Each equation gives different information about the object. Ver te form y 4.9(.7) 2.87 General form y Factored form y 4.9( 0.)( 3.) Which form is best? The answer depends on what you want to know. The verte form tells you the maimum height and when it occurs in this case,.87 meters after.7 seconds (the verte). The general form tells you that the object started at a height of.7 meters (the y-intercept). The coefficients of and 2 give some information about the starting velocity and acceleration. The factored form tells you the times at which the object s height is zero (the roots). You have already learned how to convert to and from the general form of a quadratic equation. Eample A will show you how to get the verte form from the factored form. y Write the equation for this parabola in verte form, factored form, and general form. 9 Solution From the graph you can see that the -intercepts are 3 and. So the factored form contains the binomial epressions ( 3) and ( ). 9 (, 0) (3, 0) 9 (, 8) 9 CHAPTER 9 Quadratic Models

3 If you graph y ( 3)( ) on your calculator, you ll see it has the same -intercepts as the graph shown here, but a different verte. The new verte is (, ). y y ( 3)( ) (, ) 20 The new verte needs to be closer to the -ais, so you need to find the vertical shrink factor a. The original verte of the graph shown is (, 8). So the graph of the function must 8 have a vertical shrink by a factor of, or 0.. The factored form is y 0.( 3)( ). A calculator graph of this equation looks like the desired parabola. Now you know that the value of a is 0. and that the verte is (, 8). Substitute this information into the verte form to get y 0.( ) 2 8. Epand either form to find the general form. Y =.(X 3)(X + ) X = Y = 8 [,,, 0, 0, ] y 0.( 3)( ) Original equations. y 0.( ) 2 8 y Epand using rectangle y diagrams y Combine like terms. y y Distribute and combine. y So the three forms of the quadratic equation are Ver te form y 0.( ) 2 8 General form y Factored form y 0.( 3)( ) LESSON 9.4 Factored Form 7

4 keymath.com/da EXAMPLE B Solution When finding roots it is helpful to use the factored form. In Eample A, one root is 3 because 3 is the value that makes ( 3) equal to 0. The other root is because it makes ( ) equal to 0. Think of numbers that multiply to zero. If ab 0 or abc 0, the zero-product property tells you that a, or b, or c must be 0. In an equation like ( 3)( ) 0, at least one of the factors must be zero. The roots of an equation are sometimes called the zeros of a function because they make the value of the function equal to zero. [ You can further eplore the relationship between factored form, roots, and -intercepts using the Dynamic Algebra Eploration at ] The ability to factor polynomials is also useful when simplifying rational epressions, as you ll see in the net eample. When a polynomial equation is in factored form, and reduced, it s much easier to predict or identify characteristics such as -intercepts and asymptotes. A rational epression can be reduced if there is a common factor in both the numerator and denominator. Reduce the epression by factoring. Then check your answer with a graph. First factor the quadratic epressions in the numerator and denominator. Using a rectangle diagram may help. Numerator: Denominator: Find two numbers whose product is 24 and sum is 2. 2 Find two numbers whose product is and sum is So, ( )( 4) and 2 7 ( )( ). Now reduce the rational epression. Be sure to state any restrictions on the variable ( ) ( 4) 7 ( ) ( ) ( ) ( 4) ( ) ( ) 4, where and You can check your work by graphing y and y 4 7. Ifthe epressions are equivalent the graphs should be the same, ecept for any points that may be undefined in one graph, but defined in the other. 8 CHAPTER 9 Quadratic Models

5 y y f() g() The only difference in the graphs is that the first graph is missing a point at (, 2). So the reduced epression is equivalent to the original epression.
