# SPLBE - STATE OF KUWAIT QUADRATIC EQUATION

ALGEBRA – I Ax 2 +Bx+C = 0
Basic Fundamentals of Algebra

## 1. Commutative Law of Addition – x+y = y+x −b ± √b 2 − 4ac

x=
2. Commutative Law of Multiplication x.y = y.x 2a
3. Associative Law of Addition – (x+y)+z = x+(y+z)
4. Associative Law of Multiplication – (x.y)z = x(y.z)
5. Distributive Property of Multiplication – x(y+z) = xy+xz Nature of roots:

## The discriminant, B 2 − 4AC determines the nature of the roots of a

PROPERTIES OF FRACTION

Example. If 1/3 and -3/2 are the roots of quadratic equation, then the equation is?

A. 6x 2 +7x-3=0
B. 6x 2 -7x+3=0
C. 6x 2 -7x-3=0
D. 6x 2 -7x+1=0

## If a polynomial in an unknown quantity x is divided by a first degree expression in

the same variable, (x-k), where k may be any real or complex number, the
remainder to be expected will be equal to the sum obtained when the numerical
value of k is substituted for x in the polynomial. Thus,

Remainder = f(x)
x→k
Example. Find the remainder if we divide 4x 2 +18x 2 +8y – 4 by (2y+3).
