Warm-Up
If the product of  and  equals zero, what
must be true about  or ?
Zero Product Property
∙ =0
If the product of two
expressions is zero,
then at least of the
expressions equal
zero.
Maybe that’s zero
Or maybe this one’s zero
(Or maybe they’re both zero)

Parabola
Roots (of a function)
Zeros (of a function)
Objective 1
You will be able to solve a

Exercise 1

equation
y = x2 – x – 6.
Where does the
parabola cross the
x-axis?

Exercise 2
How many y-intercepts can the graph of the
quadratic function y = ax2 + bx + c have?
– Only one since it’s a function!
How many x-intercepts can the graph of the
quadratic function y = ax2 + bx + c have?
– Two, one, or none!
Exercise 3
If you wanted to find the
y-intercept of a
what would you do?
Plug in zero for x
and solve for y
Exercise 4
Find the y-intercept of y = x2 – 6x – 7.
Exercise 5
If you wanted to find
the x-intercept of a
what would you
do?
Plug in zero for y
and solve for x
Exercise 6
Find the x-intercept(s) of y = x2 – 6x – 7.
The problem here is, how do you solve
0 = x2 – 6x – 7 since you can’t just get x by
itself?
The answer is to use the Zero
Product Property
The standard form of a quadratic equation
in one variable is ax2 + bx + c = 0, where a
is not zero.
Solving a quadratic equation in standard
form is the same thing as finding the
x-intercepts of y = ax2 + bx + c.
The standard form of a quadratic equation
in one variable is ax2 + bx + c = 0, where a
is not zero.
We can use the zero product property to
solve certain quadratic equations in
standard form if we can write ax2 + bx + c
as a product of two expressions. To do
that, we have to factor!
Exercise 7
Find the x-intercept(s) of y = x2 – 6x – 7.
Let y = 0
0  x2  6 x  7
0   x  7  x  1
Set each
factor equal

x-intercepts: (7, 0) and (−1, 0)
To solve a quadratic
equation, try applying the
zero product property.

Exercise 8
Solve 0 = x2 – x – 42.
Same Thing as…
In solving a quadratic
function, you must
find the x-values
that make the
function equal to
zero.
Same as the
roots of the
equation
Same as
finding the values of the
-intercepts
Solving
Same as the
zeroes of the
function
How Many Solutions?
There can be 2,
1, or 0
solutions to a
equation,
depending
upon where it
is in the
coordinate
plane.
Exercise 9
Find the roots of each equation.
1. x2 + 2x = 0
2.
x2 – 12x +36 = 0
3.
x2 + 1 = 0
4.
x2 + 2x + 4 = 0
Exercise 10
Explain why you cannot use the zero
product property to solve every quadratic
equation.
Exercise 11
Find the zeros of each function.
1. y = 16x2 – 4
2.
y = 9x2 + 12x + 4
3.
y = 5x2 + 16x + 3
4.
y = 2x2 + x + 3
Exercise 12
Solve the equation.
1. 4x2 – 17x – 15 = 0
2. 3x2 + 22x + 60 = -14x – 48
Example 13
Find the value(s) of x.
Exercise 14
Find the value of x if the area of the triangle
is 42 square units.
Exercise 15
Use substitution to solve the system of
equations.
