Quadratic Equation by Total Gadha - Saturday, 5 July 2008, 04:21 AM

I have not written for a while for my C AT 2010 students, not because I didn't want to but because the explosive growth of Totalgadha.com and TathaGat kept me busy in multidimensional roles. Gone are the long evening walks, leisurely problem-solving sessions and book readings. Now my time is spent in hurried classroom sessions, editing worksheets, answering incessant phone calls, and managing a rapidly-growing team. The pleasures and pains of entrepreneurship are numerous. Not that I am complaining. It feels good to see that an idea which was once a passing thought has blossomed into something real. It is heartening to see that you can do a lot of good in this world. TG.com was once a thought. Now it is a reality. It would give rise to more realities. Tomorrow, there would be something better than TG.com. There would be better thoughts. And in the end, it would be the students who would benefit the most by the new realities. It is reason enough to rejoice, pain of entrepreneurship notwithstanding. One more C AT is approaching fast. There is already a tightening in my stomach, a lump in my throat. If I could have my wish, I would want all my students and TGites to clear C AT. But this is not possible, and in the end, life wouldnt be interesting without a good mix of victories and defeats. No matter what happens on the D-day, I hope that the students dont stop learning at least. Amen! So here is it ladies and gentlemen, a fruit of painful labour.

Re: Quadratic Equation by Am it A - Saturday, 5 July 2008, 12:53 PM

Hello Sir , Thanks a lot for yet another enlightining article. I just wanted to drive your attention to one minor mistake in one of the examples listed in this article. The First illustration in the section (Completing the Square) , the equation x2 - 10x - 6 =0 should be having minimum value as -31 (and not -25). Please let me know if I m wrong. And please keep posting such informative articles because your forum is the only one I (and many others) trust most. Regards Amit.

Re: Quadratic Equation by ATO M ANT - Saturday, 5 July 2008, 03:51 PM TG sir, I have fe w doubts. 1.C an you give m e an e x am ple of a parabola that touche s only x -ax is? 2.You have give n thre e diffe re nt curve s for the quadratic e quation with a>0 and a<0... what is the form of e quation whe re the curve do not touch x -ax is... is it lik e y = x 2 + k .. 3.Are parabolas ne cce ssarily sym m e trical ? and I would lik e to add a point to your le sson. For any quadratic e quation of the form ax 2 + bx + c = 0 for e ve ry single change of sign the re is a positive root. e g: x 2 + 5x + 6 = 0 roots = -2,-3 x 2 -5x - 6 = 0 roots = -1,6 x 2 -5x + 6 = 0 roots = 2,3 Thank s a lot for the le sson.. Btw whe re should I post m y doubts on que stions from C opycat-1... Unfortunate ly m y pre vious post was de le te d.

Hi TG, In the re ply poste d to ATO M, how x ^2 - x + 4 touch x -ax is only once ? i think it shd have two roots... pl com m e nt.... And, how a quadratic e qn with im aginary roots is plotte d on a graph..(if possible ).... Tnx in advance ..

Re: Quadratic Equation by abhi raj - Friday, 11 July 2008, 09:02 PM hi naga, x 2-4x +4 touch x -ax is only once as it has only one root i.e 2 or u can say that both the roots are sam e so it will touch the x -ax is only once . And as far as e quation x 2-x +4 is conce rne d it doe s not have any solution or it has im aginary roots which is ans to ur que s .
