## Enter Quadratic equation/inequality below

Hint Number =

Solve, factor, complte the square
find the concavity, vertex, vertex form
axis of symmetry and y-intercept for the quadratic:

x2+2x = 35

The quadratic you entered is not in standard form:
ax2 + bx + c = 0

##### Subtract 35 from both sides

x2+2x - 35 = 35 - 35
x2+2x - 35 = 0

##### Set up the a, b, and c values:

a = 1, b = 2, c = -35

 x  = -b ± √b2 - 4ac 2a

-b = -(2)

-b = -2

##### Calculate the discriminant Δ

Δ = b2 - 4ac:

Δ = 22 - 4 x 1 x -35

Δ = 4 - -140

Δ = 144 <--- Discriminant

Since Δ > 0, we expect two real roots.

Δ = √(144)

Δ = 12

##### -b + Δ:

Numerator 1 = -b + √Δ

Numerator 1 = -2 + 12

Numerator 1 = 10

##### -b - Δ:

Numerator 2 = -b - √Δ

Numerator 2 = -2 - 12

Numerator 2 = -14

##### Calculate 2a

Denominator = 2 * a

Denominator = 2 * 1

Denominator = 2

##### Find Solutions

 Solution 1  = Numerator 1 Denominator

 Solution 1  = 10 2

Solution 1 = 5

##### Solution 2

 Solution 2  = Numerator 2 Denominator

 Solution 2  = -14 2

Solution 2 = -7

##### Solution Set

(Solution 1, Solution 2) = (5, -7)

##### Prove our first answer

(5)2 + 2(5) - 35 ? 0

(25) + 1035 ? 0

25 + 1035 ? 0

0 = 0

##### Prove our second answer

(-7)2 + 2(-7) - 35 ? 0

(49) - 1435 ? 0

49 - 1435 ? 0

0 = 0

(Solution 1, Solution 2) = (5, -7)

##### Calculate the y-intercept

The y-intercept is the point where x = 0

Set x = 0 in ƒ(x) = x2 + 2x - 35=

ƒ(0) = (0)2 + 2(0) - 35=

ƒ(0) = 0 + 0 - 35

ƒ(0) = -35  ← Y-Intercept

Y-intercept = (0,-35)

##### Vertex of a parabola

(h,k) where y = a(x - h)2 + k

Use the formula rule.

Our equation coefficients are a = 1, b = 2

##### The formula rule determines h

h = Axis of Symmetry

 h  = -b 2a

##### Plug in -b = -2 and a = 1

 h  = -(2) 2(1)

 h  = -2 2

h = -1  ← Axis of Symmetry

##### Calculate k

k = ƒ(h) where h = -1

ƒ(h) = (h)2(h)35=

ƒ(-1) = (-1)2(-1)35=

ƒ(-1) = 1 - 2 - 35

ƒ(-1) = -36

Our vertex (h,k) = (-1,-36)

##### Determine our vertex form:

The vertex form is: a(x - h)2 + k

Vertex form = (x + 1)2 - 36

Axis of Symmetry: h = -1
vertex (h,k) = (-1,-36)
Vertex form = (x + 1)2 - 36

##### Analyze the x2 coefficient

Since our x2 coefficient of 1 is positive
The parabola formed by the quadratic is concave up

concave up

##### Add 35 to each side

x2 + 2x - 35= + 35 = 0 + 35

x2 - 2x = 35

##### Complete the square:

Add an amount to both sides

x2 + 2x + ? = 35 + ?

Add (½*middle coefficient)2 to each side

 Amount to add  = (1 x 2)2 (2 x 1)2

 Amount to add  = (2)2 (2)2

 Amount to add  = 4 4

Amount to add = 4/4

##### Rewrite our perfect square equation:

x2 + 2 + (2/2)2 = 35 + (2/2)2

(x + 2/2)2 = 35 + 4/4

##### Simplify Right Side of the Equation:

LCM of 1 and 4 = 4

We multiply 35 by 4 ÷ 1 = 4 and 4 by 4 ÷ 4 = 1

 Simplified Fraction  = 35 x 4 + 4 x 1 4

 Simplified Fraction  = 140 + 4 4

 Simplified Fraction  = 144 4

Simplified Fraction = 36

u2 = (x + 2/2)2

u = +√36

u = -√36

x + 2/2 = +6

x + 2/2 = -6

##### Subtract 2/2 from the both sides

x + 2/2 - 2/2 = +6/1 - 2/2

##### Simplify right side of the equation

LCM of 1 and 2 = 2

We multiply 6 by 2 ÷ 1 = 2 and -2 by 2 ÷ 2 = 1

 Simplified Fraction  = 6 x 2 - 2 x 1 2

 Simplified Fraction  = 12 - 2 2

 Simplified Fraction  = 10 2

Simplified Fraction = 5

Answer 1 = 5

##### Subtract 2/2 from the both sides

x + 2/2 - 2/2 = -6/1 - 2/2

##### Simplify right side of the equation

LCM of 1 and 2 = 2

We multiply -6 by 2 ÷ 1 = 2 and -2 by 2 ÷ 2 = 1

 Simplified Fraction  = -6 x 2 - 2 x 1 2

 Simplified Fraction  = -12 - 2 2

 Simplified Fraction  = -14 2

Simplified Fraction = -7

Answer 2 = -7

##### Build factor pairs:

Since a = 1, find all factor pairs of c = -35
These must have a sum = 2

Factor Pairs of -35Sum of Factor Pair
1,-351 - 35 = -34
5,-75 - 7 = -2
7,-57 - 5 = 2
35,-135 - 1 = 34

We want {7,-5}

##### Since our a coefficient = 1, we setup our factors
