# Solving Quadratic Equations

## Algebra-1 Worksheets

The polynomial equation of second degree is called a quadratic equation.

The general form of quadratic equation is *ax*^{2} + *bx* + *c* = 0, where *a*, *b*, *c* are real numbers and.

## We can solve quadratic equations by following methods –

1- Factorization

2- Completing the square

3- Using the quadratic formula

**1) Factorization **

In factorization we split the middle term into two parts such that the product of first term and the last term is equal to the product of the two splitted parts, then we perform grouping and at last we put both the brackets equal to zero to find out the required solutions.

** Example** –

*y*

^{2}+

*y*– 2 = 0

Finding solutions of the given equation

*y*^{2} + 2*y* – *y* – 2 = 0 (Splitting the middle term)

*y*(*y* + 2) – 1(*y* + 2) = 0

(*y* + 2) (*y* – 1) = 0 (Grouping)

Either (*y* + 2) = 0 or (*y* – 1) = 0

*y* = -2 or *y* = 1 are the required solutions.

**2) Completing the square –**

First we make coefficient of x^{2 }as 1 by dividing the equation by a, then bring constant to the right side and then making left side perfect square by adding suitable constant both sides. After that we will take square root of both sides and finally we will solve for x.

** Example**

*–*s

^{2}-3s-10=0

s^{2}-3s=10

## eTutorWorld Understands Math Tutoring | Online Math Worksheets are Important Tools

Understanding graphs, charts, and opinion polls in a newspaper, for calculating house and car payments, and for choosing a long-distance telephone service are impossible without strong math skills …and the only way to develop strong math skills is by constant practice.

‘Practice makes a man perfect’ holds true for no other field better than for math. A middle or high school student must set aside a minimum of an hour for math every day. Other than textbooks, worksheets help you revise and understand concepts better.

Our expert tutors prepare online maths worksheets that are age and grade-appropriate. Grade-wise math worksheets for Elementary Math, Arithmetic, Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Statistics, Pre-Calculus and Calculus can be solved to improve math skills, to get ahead or to even catch up.

You may download these FREE online math worksheets in the PDF format, and then print and email us their solutions for a free evaluation and analysis by eTutorworld’smath expert tutors.

You may solve these worksheets by yourself or with your peers while studying together.

The Answer Key at the end of each worksheet allows for a self-evaluation.

## Using the Quadratic Formula:

First, compare the given equation with the general equation *ax*^{2} + *bx* + *c*, then put the values of a, b, c in the quadratic formula

** Example** -2x

^{2}+5x-6=0

Putting value after comparing with general equation

**Some facts about Quadratic Equations:**

1) Any number when putting in place of variable if satisfies the equation is called the root of the equation.

2) Zeros of *ax*^{2} + *bx* + *c* and roots of* ax*^{2} + *bx* + *c=0* are same.

**Check point**

Solve the following quadratic equations-

1) *x*^{2} + 15*x* + 56 = 0

2) *a*^{2} + 9*a* + 20 = 0

3)* b*^{2} + 2*b* – 4 = 0

4) y-(6/y) =5

5) *p*^{2} – 5*p* + 6 = 0
