Examples: x + 1= 3 solution: 2 4x = 4 solution: 1 x2 = 25 solutions: 5 and —5. For solving harder equations, the usual strategy is to keep modifying the equation until you arrive at some equation you can solve. Take, for example, x2 — x = 25 — x. If x satisfies this equation, it also satisfies x2 = 25, and conversely. The latter equation is simpler; x = 5 or JC = —5. If x satisfies 2x + 1 = 7, then x also satisfies 2x = 6, from which x = 3. In the first example, we added x to both sides of the equation; in the second we subtracted 1 from both sides.

The product is 0 only if x — 4 = 0 or x + 1 = 0 , that is, only if x = 4 or x = — 1. Answer (a) 0,2 (b) 4 , - 1 . Completing the Square The quadratic equation (JC - 2) 2 = 9 is easy to solve because the left-hand side is a perfect square. By inspection, either x — 2 = 3 or x — 2 = —3. Hence x = 5 and x = — 1 are solutions. Now look at the equation x2 + 6x + 4 = 0. The left side is not a perfect square, but something similar is: x2 + 6x + 9. So add 3. Quadratic Equations 5 to both sides: x2 + 6x + 9 = 5, (x + 3)2 = 5.
