• Challenge Problems
Warm-Up
If the product of  and  equals zero, what
must be true about  or ?
Zero Product Property
∙ =0
If the product of two
expressions is zero,
then at least of the
expressions equal
zero.
Maybe that’s zero
Or maybe this one’s zero
(Or maybe they’re both zero)
Objective 1
You will be able to solve a

Exercise 2
How many y-intercepts can the graph of the
quadratic function y = ax2 + bx + c have?
– Only one since it’s a function!
How many x-intercepts can the graph of the
quadratic function y = ax2 + bx + c have?
– Two, one, or none!
How Many Solutions?
There can be 2,
1, or 0
solutions to a
equation,
depending
upon where it
is in the
coordinate
plane.
Exercise 3
If you wanted to find the
y-intercept of a
what would you do?
Plug in zero for x
and solve for y
Exercise 4
Find the y-intercept of y = x2 – 6x – 7.
Exercise 5
If you wanted to find
the x-intercept of a
what would you
do?
Plug in zero for y
and solve for x
Exercise 6
Find the x-intercept(s) of y = x2 – 6x – 7.
The problem here is, how do you solve
0 = x2 – 6x – 7 since you can’t just get x by
itself?
The answer is to use the Zero
Product Property
The standard form of a quadratic equation
in one variable is ax2 + bx + c = 0, where a
is not zero.
Solving a quadratic equation in standard
form is the same thing as finding the
x-intercepts of y = ax2 + bx + c.
The standard form of a quadratic equation
in one variable is ax2 + bx + c = 0, where a
is not zero.
We can use the zero product property to
standard form if we can write ax2 + bx + c
as a product of two expressions. To do
that, we have to factor!
Exercise 7
Find the x-intercept(s) of y = x2 – 6x – 7.
Let y = 0
0  x2  6 x  7
0   x  7  x  1

find the x-values
that make the

Solving quadratic inequalities in one variable
is similar to solving a combination of linear
inequalities and absolute value
inequalities.
• Like linear: graphed on a number line
• Like absolute value: involves “and” or “or”
intervals
– “And” = segment; “Or” = 2 rays in opposite
directions
x 2  25
Now taking the square root of both sides
doesn’t translate well with inequalities, so
equation:
x 2  25
x  5
These are our critical values. Graph them.
x 2  25
Now you have 3 intervals to consider.
Which one(s) make(s) the inequality true?
x  5 or x  5
GreatOR
x 2  25
Now you have 3 intervals to consider.
Which one(s) make(s) the inequality true?
5  x  5
Less ThAND
Another way to think about solving a
quadratic inequality in one variable is to
relate it to a quadratic inequality in two
variables.
Instead of  2 − 4 < 0, consider  2 − 4 < .
Now graph this inequality, shading the
appropriate region.
x2  4  0
x2  4  y
the x-axis:
2 x  2
x2  4  0
x2  4  y
the x-axis:
x  2 or x  2
Exercise 9
Solve the given inequality.
2x2  7 x  4
Exercise 10
Solve the given inequality.
2x2  2x  3
Exercise 11
Find the domain of each function.
1.  =  2 − 121
2.  = 121 −  2
Exercise 12
Find the value(s) of x.
Exercise 13
Use substitution to solve the system of
equations.
