The critical values of a quadratic inequality are also the x-intercepts of the corresponding quadratic equation. This tutorial provides a great explanation of the critical values of a quadratic inequality!
When you have a linear equation, the x-intercept is the point where the graph of the line crosses the x-axis. In this tutorial, learn about the x-intercept. Check it out!
If you graph a linear function, you get a line. If you graph a quadratic function, you get something called a parabola. A parabola tends to look like a smile or a frown, depending on the function. Check out this tutorial and learn about parabolas!
Inequalities come up all the time when you're working algebra problems. In this tutorial you'll learn what an inequality is, and you'll see all the common inequality symbols that you're likely to see :)
When an equation has two variables, the set of ordered pairs that are the solution to the equation are called the solution set to the equation. In this tutorial, you'll learn the definition of a solution set and see an example. Take a look!
A quadratic inequality is just like a quadratic equation, except instead of an equal sign there's an inequality! Check out this tutorial to see the characteristics of a quadratic inequality and get some practice identifying them.
You can solve a quadratic inequality by graphing! Follow along with this tutorial to see how to graph a quadratic inequality and use that graph to find the solution!
