Chapter 4 Quadratic Equations
Concept | Description |
---|---|
Quadratic Equation | A polynomial equation of degree two in one variable, typically written as f(x) = ax² + bx + c, where ‘a,’ ‘b,’ and ‘c’ are real numbers, and ‘a’ is not equal to zero. |
Roots of Quadratic Equation | The values of ‘x’ that satisfy the quadratic equation f(x) = 0 are the roots (α, β) of the equation. Quadratic equations always have two roots. |
Quadratic Formula | The formula to find the roots (α, β) of a quadratic equation is given by: (α, β) = [-b ± √(b² – 4ac)] / (2a), where ‘a,’ ‘b,’ and ‘c’ are coefficients of the equation. |
Discriminant | The discriminant ‘D’ of a quadratic equation is given by D = b² – 4ac. It determines the nature of the roots of the equation. |
Nature of Roots | Depending on the value of the discriminant ‘D,’ the nature of the roots can be categorized as follows: |
– D > 0: Real and distinct roots (unequal). | |
– D = 0: Real and equal roots (coincident). | |
– D < 0: Imaginary roots (unequal, in the form of complex numbers). | |
Sum and Product of Roots | The sum of the roots (α + β) is equal to -b/a, and the product of the roots (αβ) is equal to c/a. |
Quadratic Equation in Root Form | A quadratic equation can be expressed in the form of its roots as x² – (α + β)x + (αβ) = 0. |
Common Roots of Quadratic Equations | Two quadratic equations have one common root if (b₁c₂ – b₂c₁) / (c₁a₂ – c₂a₁) = (c₁a₂ – c₂a₁) / (a₁b₂ – a₂b₁). |
Both equations have both roots in common if a₁/a₂ = b₁/b₂ = c₁/c₂. | |
Maximum and Minimum Values | For a quadratic equation ax² + bx + c = 0: |
Roots of Cubic Equation | – If ‘a’ is greater than zero (a > 0), it has a minimum value at x = -b/(2a). |
– If ‘a’ is less than zero (a < 0), it has a maximum value at x = -b/(2a). | |
If α, β, γ are roots of the cubic equation ax³ + bx² + cx + d = 0, then: | |
– α + β + γ = -b/a | |
– αβ + βγ + λα = c/a | |
– αβγ = -d/a |
