2. When can I use it?!?!? • Anytime! • In place of factoring • In place of solving using square roots • Pros and Cons to using it though

3. Pros of the Quadratic Formula • It can be used anytime • Sometimes it is not possible to factor, so the quadratic formula will still let you solve the problem • When you don’t know what to do, use it!

4. Cons of the quadratic formula • When it is possible to factor, factoring is faster and the quadratic formula could slow you down. • Easy to make mistakes when using the quadratic formula

5. Common errors/things to look out for! • There are two solutions to the quadratic formula • Watch out for negative signs • Make sure you put the equation in standard form • ax2+bx+c

6. Steps for solving • Put the equation in standard form • Identify a, b, and c coefficients • Plug into the formula • Solve for the positive and negative solutions

7. Solve 2k2+9k=-7

8. Solve 5r2=80

9. Solve 2x2-36=x

10. Solve 5x2+9x=-4

11. Solve k2-31-2k=-6-3k2-2k
