**3.7 Completing the Square Objective:**

To solve quadratic equations by completing the square.

2
**Perfect Square Trinomials**

Examples x2 + 6x + 9 x2 – 10x + 25 x2 + 12x + 36

3
**Creating a Perfect Square Trinomial**

In the following perfect square trinomial, the constant term is missing x2 + 14x + ____ Find the constant term by squaring half the coefficient of the linear term. (14/2)2 x2 + 14x + 49

4
**Perfect Square Trinomials**

Create perfect square trinomials. x2 + 20x + ___ x2 - 4x + ___ x2 + 5x + ___ 100 4 25/4

5
**Solving Quadratic Equations by Completing the Square**

Solve the following equation by completing the square: Step 1: Move quadratic term, and linear term to left side of the equation

6
**Solving Quadratic Equations by Completing the Square**

Step 2: Find the term that completes the square on the left side of the equation. Add that term to both sides. x2 + 8x = 20 +

7
**Solving Quadratic Equations by Completing the Square**

Step 3: Factor the perfect square trinomial on the left side of the equation. Simplify the right side of the equation.

8
**Solving Quadratic Equations by Completing the Square**

Step 4: Take the square root of each side Do NOT forget the ± !!!!!!!

9
**Solving Quadratic Equations by Completing the Square**

Step 5: Set up the two possibilities and solve

10
**Completing the Square-Example #2**

Solve the following equation by completing the square: Step 1: Move quadratic term, and linear term to left side of the equation, the constant to the right side of the equation.

11
**Solving Quadratic Equations by Completing the Square**

Step 2: Find the term that completes the square on the left side of the equation. Add that term to both sides. The quadratic coefficient must be equal to 1 before you complete the square, so you must divide all terms by the quadratic coefficient first.
