This video shows how to derive the quadratic formula by solving the quadratic equation.

This is a step by step solution starting with the quadratic equation.

1) divide through by the coefficient “a”

2) complete the square by adding “b^2/(4*a^2)” to both sides

3) subtract “c/a” from both sides of the equation

4) take the square root of both sides of the equation (don’t forget the plus or minus +/- in front of the square root.)

5) combine the fractions under the square root

6) subtract “b/a” from both sides of the equation

7) combine the fractions

We have successfully isolated “x” and therefore derived the quadratic formula from the quadratic equation.

MelanieGreat video! I’d love to see more.
