How to Solve Quadratics That Are Not in Standard Form

1. How to Solve Quadratics That Are Not in Standard Form

Quadratic equations are second-order polynomials that have two roots and these equations can be written in various forms. Learn about the different forms of quadratic equations and the methods and properties used for solving quadratic equations that are not in the standard form.

How to Use the Quadratic Formula to Solve a Quadratic Equation

2. How to Use the Quadratic Formula to Solve a Quadratic Equation

The quadratic formula may be used to solve quadratic equations that cannot be solved using other simple methods of factoring. Learn about the quadratic formula, how to apply it, and how to use it to solve for the roots of any quadratic equation.

How to Solve a Quadratic Equation by Factoring

3. How to Solve a Quadratic Equation by Factoring

The solutions of a quadratic equation can be solved by using a factoring method. Investigate quadratic equations and discover how to use the factoring method for solving the roots of a quadratic equation.

Factoring Quadratic Equations: Polynomial Problems with a Non-1 Leading Coefficient

4. Factoring Quadratic Equations: Polynomial Problems with a Non-1 Leading Coefficient

Factoring quadratic equations with a leading coefficient other than 1 requires finding the product of the constant times the leading coefficient, and finding the greatest common factor to that pair. Discover more in this detailed lesson on factoring polynomials with a non-1 leading coefficient.

Multiplying Binomials Using FOIL and the Area Method

5. Multiplying Binomials Using FOIL and the Area Method

Binomials, which are algebraic expressions that use two terms, can be multiplied together in various ways. Discover how to use the distributive property, the FOIL method, the area method, and the claw and face methods to combine binomials.

Multiplying Binomials Using FOIL & the Area Method: Practice Problems

6. Multiplying Binomials Using FOIL & the Area Method: Practice Problems

Multiplying binomials can be done using different methods, such as the FOIL method and the Area method. Learn about binomials, conjugates, and using FOIL and Area methods in multiplying binomials and conjugates, as well as higher-order polynomials by solving a series of practice problems.

How to Add, Subtract and Multiply Polynomials

7. How to Add, Subtract and Multiply Polynomials

Adding, subtracting, and multiplying polynomials is similar to adding, subtracting, and multiplying numbers, except there are variables to work around. Discover how to manage the unexpected and learn more about adding, subtracting, and multiplying polynomials.

How to Factor Quadratic Equations: FOIL in Reverse

8. How to Factor Quadratic Equations: FOIL in Reverse

Factoring quadratic equations requires you to use the FOIL method in reverse to break the equation down into its standard multiples. Learn how to use the reverse FOIL method and the distributive property to find the numbers that multiply to get your original equation.

How to Complete the Square

9. How to Complete the Square

The method of completing the square is used for rewriting quadratic equations to their standard form. Explore the process of completing the square and learn how to use this method in solving problems involving quadratic equations.

Completing the Square Practice Problems

10. Completing the Square Practice Problems

When the c-value of a trinomial equal (b/2)^2, a quadratic equation in standard form can be factored into a perfect square binomial. Learn about completing the square by solving progressively difficult practice problems.
