Solving a Geometry Word Problem by Using Quadratic Equations Example: A picture inside a frame is 2 in longer than it is wide.
The picture is in a frame that has width 3 in on each side of the picture.
The length of the wire is 2 feet greater than the distance from the base of the tree to the stake.
A guy wire is attached to a tree to help it grow straight.
Step IV: Solve this equation to obtain the value of the unknown in the set to which it belongs.x = -5 does not satisfy the conditions of the problem length or breadth can never be negative. In solving a problem, each root of the quadratic equation is to be verified whether it satisfies the conditions of the given problem.
Due to the nature of the mathematics on this site it is best views in landscape mode.
Many word problems Involving unknown quantities can be translated for solving quadratic equations Methods of solving quadratic equations are discussed here in the following steps. Step II: use the conditions of the problem to establish in unknown quantities.
Step III: Use the equations to establish one quadratic equation in one unknown.
And, thanks to the Internet, it's easier than ever to follow in their footsteps (or just finish your homework or study for that next big test).
