computing them a QE -------------------------------->

DISCRIMINANTS
Completing the
Extracting Roots
1. Make sure the equation Square
has no linear term
2. Turn it into this form ;
ax^2 = c
HOW TO 1. Change the equation to
Standard
2. Divide the middle term by 2
3. Get the roots of both
sides GR. 9 MATH? 3. Square it.

SUM AND PRODUCT
OF ROOTS

1. Change the equation to General Form


2. Find the Values for a, b and c
3. Substitute and use formula for the Sum
and Product of Roots
Sum of Roots = -b/a
Product of Roots = c/a Liam Arboleda
