Question and answer
Explain the four-steps for solving quadratic equations. Can any of these steps be eliminated? Can the order of these steps be changed? Would you add any steps to make it easier, or to make it easier
to understand?
Step 1: Isolate the x^2 and x terms. Use the addition and subtraction and isolate the x^2 and x terms on the left-hand side of the equation. [ Then, use the multiplication and division axioms to eliminate the coefficient from the x^2 term. Step 2: Make the coefficient on the x^2 term equal to 1. Use multiplication or division to eliminate the coefficient from the x^2 term. Step 3: Complete the
square. To complete the square, take the coefficient of the x term, square it, and divide it by 4. Step 4: Solve the equation in step 3 by taking the square root of both sides of the equation. ]
