2.10 Summary

2.10 Summary (EMBFZ)

  • Zero product law: if \(a \times b = 0\), then \(a = 0\) and/or \(b=0\).

  • Quadratic formula: \(x = \dfrac{-b \pm \sqrt{b^2 - 4ac}}{2a}\).

  • Discriminant: \(\Delta = b^2 - 4ac\).

    Nature of roots Discriminant
    Roots are non-real \(\Delta <0\)
    Roots are real and equal \(\Delta = 0\)

    Roots are real and unequal:

    • Rational roots
    • Irrational roots

    \(\Delta > 0\)

    • \(Δ =\) squared rational number
    • \(Δ =\) not squared rational number
