Let’s Discuss

Let’s Discuss (p. 1.23)

Angel’s method:

Using the quadratic formula,

Ken’s method:

Using the quadratic formula,

Let’s Discuss (p. 1.30)

The solution obtained by using the factor method is the exact value of the root. However, the solution obtained by using the graphical method is an approximation only.

1.

(a) When x = 3, L.H.S. == 0 R.H.S. = 0 Since L.H.S. = R.H.S., 3 is a root of the equation.

(b) When x = 6, L.H.S. == 9 R.H.S. = 0 Since L.H.S. R.H.S., 6 is not a root of the equation. (c) When x = –3 , L.H.S. == 36 R.H.S. = 0 Since L.H.S. R.H.S., –3 is not a root of the equation.

2. (a) When x = –4, L.H.S. == 0 R.H.S. = 0 Since L.H.S. = R.H.S., –4 is a root of the equation. (b) When, L.H.S. = R.H.S. = 0 Since L.H.S. R.H.S., is not a root of the equation. (c) When, L.H.S. = R.H.S. = 0 Since L.H.S. = R.H.S., is a root of the equation.
