1.1 Factoring x 2 +2x-12

The first term is, x 2 its coefficient is 1 . The middle term is, +2x its coefficient is 2 . The last term, "the constant", is -12

Step-1 : Multiply the coefficient of the first term by the constant

1 -12 = -12

Parabola, Finding the Vertex :

2.1 Find the Vertex of

y = x 2 +2x-12

Parabolas have a highest or a lowest point called the Vertex . and accordingly has a lowest point (AKA absolute minimum) .

than zero).

Each parabola has a vertical line of symmetry that passes through its vertex. Because

 of this symmetry, the line of symmetry would, for example, pass through the midpoint of the two x -intercepts (roots or solutions) of the parabola. That is, if the parabola has

indeed two real solutions.

Parabolas can model many real life situations, such as the height above ground, of an object thrown upward, after some period of time. The vertex of the parabola can provide us with information, such as the maximum height that object, thrown upwards, can reach. For this reason we want to be able to find the coordinates of the vertex.

For any parabola,Ax 2 +Bx+C,the x -coordinate of the vertex is given by -B/(2A) . In our case the x coordinate is -1.0000

Plugging into the parabola formula -1.0000 for x we can calculate the

y -coordinate :

y = 1.0 * -1.00 * -1.00 + 2.0 * -1.00 - 12.0

or

y = -13.000

Solve Quadratic Equation by Completing The Square

2.2 Solving

x 2 +2x-12 = 0 by Completing The Square .

Add 12 to both side of the equation :

x 2 +2x = 12

Now the clever bit: Take the coefficient of x , which is 2 , divide by two, giving 1 , and finally square it giving 1

Add 1 to both sides of the equation :

On the right hand side we have :

12 + 1 or, (12/1)+(1/1) The common denominator of the two fractions is 1 So adding to both sides we finally get :

x 2 +2x+1 = 13

Adding 1 has completed the left hand side into a perfect square :

x 2 +2x+1 = (x+1) • (x+1) = (x+1) 2 Things which are equal to the same thing are also equal to one another. Since x 2 +2x+1 = 13 and

Solve x^(2)+2x-12=0 Tiger Algebra Solver

x 2 +2x+1 = (x+1) 2 then, according to the law of transitivity, (x+1) 2 = 13

We'll refer to this Equation as Eq. #2.2.1

The Square Root Principle says that When two things are equal, their square roots are equal.

Note that the square root of (x+1) 2 is (x+1) 2/2 = (x+1) 1 =

x+1

Now, applying the Square Root Principle to Eq. #2.2.1 we get:

x+1 = 13

Subtract 1 from both sides to obtain:

x = -1 + 13

Since a square root has two values, one positive and the other negative x 2 + 2x - 12 = 0 has two solutions:

x = -1 + 13

or

x = -1 - 13

2.3 Solving

x 2 +2x-12 = 0 by the Quadratic Formula .

Yes!

To be able to remove something from under the radical, there have to be 2 instances of it (because we are taking a square i.e. second root).
