In a quadratic equation, the discriminant helps tell you the number of real solutions to a quadratic equation. The expression used to find the discriminant is the expression located under the radical in the quadratic formula! In this tutorial, get introduced to the discriminant of a quadratic equation!
If you're solving quadratic equations, knowing the quadratic formula is a MUST! This formula is normally used when no other methods for solving quadratics can be reasonably used. In this tutorial, learn about the quadratic formula and see it used to solve a quadratic equation. Take a look!
Want to simplify a radical whose radicand is not a perfect square? No sweat! Check out this tutorial and see how to write that radicand as its prime factorization. Then, rewrite any duplicate factors using exponents, break up the radical using the product property of square roots, and simplify. To see this process step-by-step, watch this tutorial!
To multiply radicals, you can use the product property of square roots to multiply the contents of each radical together. Then, it's just a matter of simplifying! In this tutorial, you'll see how to multiply two radicals together and then simplify their product. Check it out!
The converse of the Pythagorean Theorem is like the the Pythagorean Theorem in reverse. You can use it both forward and backward! Not all theorems work this way, but the Pythagorean Theorem does! This tutorial will show you how to use both the Pythagorean Theorem and its converse.
The Pythagorean theorem is a very popular theorem that shows a special relationship between the sides of a right triangle. In this tutorial, you'll get introduced to the Pythagorean theorem and see how it's used to solve for a missing length on a right triangle!
