# Can we determine a

have its roots?
Do Now: Use the quadratic formula to
determine the general form of BOTH
What is the sum of the roots
• We determined that the general form of
the two roots can be written as:
b  b 2  4ac b  b 2  4ac
x or x 
2a 2a
• To find the sum, we add these together
b  b  4ac b  b  4ac 
2 2 b  b 2
 4ac  b  b 2
 4ac
  2a
2a 2a
b  b 2b b
  
2a 2a a

The sum of the roots is
always the same?
• Yes, for any quadratic equation, due to
the nature of the roots, the sum of the
roots is the opposite of b over a.
• If we know one root and the sum of the
roots, we can find the other root.
• Note: If we know that one root is
imaginary, then the other root is the
CONJUGATE!!!
Is there a similar
relationship for the product
of the roots?
• Yes! We can use the general form of
the roots to find the product.

Why do we care about the
sum and product of roots?
• If we know the sum and product, we can
• The sum is made of b and a, and the
product is made of c and a, so we have
everything we need to write the

are:
