# Solving Quadratics

### by Cheyenne Mesteth

## Steps in graphing in standard form

1.) graph the equation

2.) use the formula x=-b/2(a)

3.) plot my vertex and axis of symmetry

4.) make and x-y table and choose two points to plot on the graph

5.) reflect your points over the axis of symmetry to complete your parabola

6.) state the domain and range

## steps to adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing complex numbers Adding: 1.) combine like terms (real to real and imaginary to imaginary) Subtracting: 1.) distribute your negative 2.) combine real to real and imaginary to imaginary Multiplying: 1.) just distribute or foil Dividing: 1.) distribute and multiply by the conjugate 2.) distribute or foil 3.) simplify the powers of i 4.) combine like terms 5.) write your answer in form of a+bi 6.) reduce your answers if you can | ## steps to solving story problems 1.) read thoroughly 2.) select your variables 3.) look for quantities that are equal 4.) solve the equation 5.) check | ## steps to graphing in vertex form 1.) Find the vertex 2.) FInd the y-intercept 3.) Find the x-intercept 4.) Graph the parabola with the points found in step 3 |

## steps to adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing complex numbers

1.) combine like terms (real to real and imaginary to imaginary)

Subtracting:

1.) distribute your negative

2.) combine real to real and imaginary to imaginary

Multiplying:

1.) just distribute or foil

Dividing:

1.) distribute and multiply by the conjugate

2.) distribute or foil

3.) simplify the powers of i

4.) combine like terms

5.) write your answer in form of a+bi

6.) reduce your answers if you can

## steps to solving story problems

2.) select your variables

3.) look for quantities that are equal

4.) solve the equation

5.) check
