SOLVING QUADRATIC EQUATIONS- When to use what? ? ? Get the equation in standard form: If there is no middle term (b = 0) then get the x 2 alone and square root both sides (if you get a negative under the square root there are no real solutions). If there is no constant term (c = 0) then factor out the common x and solve (set each factor = 0). If a, b and c are non-zero, see if you can factor and use the factor law to solve. If it doesn't factor or is hard to factor, use the quadratic formula to solve (if you get a negative under the square root there are no real solutions).

x 2 – 4 = 0 
x 2 = 4 I know that, when solving an equation, I can do whatever I like to that equation as long as I do the same thing to both sides of the equation. On the left -hand side of this particular equation, I have an x 2, and I need a plain x. To turn an x 2 into an x, I can take the square root of each side of the equation: 
x = ± 2 Then the solution is x = ± 2
