Let us discuss the solutions of quadratic equations.

Solved Examples

Question 1: Find out the roots of the given equation,x2 + 2x – 3 = 0 ?

Solution:

 
The given quadratic equation is,
x2 + 2x – 3 = 0
Here a = 1, b = 2 and c = -3
The formula for the solution,

x = $\frac{-bpm \sqrt{b^{2}-4ac}}{2a}$

x = $\frac{-2pm \sqrt{2^{2}-4\times1\times-3}}{2\times1}$

x = $\frac{-2pm \sqrt{4+12}}{2}$

x = $\frac{-2+4}{2}$ = 1 or x = $\frac{-2-4}{2}$ = -3
 

Question 2: Find out the roots of 2x2 – 3x – 5 = 0?

Solution:

 
The given quadratic equation is,
2x2 – 3x – 5 = 0
Here a = 2, b = -3 and c = -5
The formula for the solution,

x = $\frac{-bpm \sqrt{b^{2}-4ac}}{2a}$

x = $\frac{3\pm \sqrt{3^{2}-4\times2\times-5}}{2\times2}$

x = $\frac{3\pm \sqrt{41}}{4}$

x = $\frac{3+7}{4}$ = $\frac{5}{2}$ or x = $\frac{3-7}{4}$ = -1
