How to Solve By Completing the Square (NancyPi)

Published on August 28, 2018 by

MIT grad shows the easiest way to complete the square to solve a quadratic equation. To skip ahead: 1) for a quadratic that STARTS WITH X^2, skip to time 1:42. 2) For a quadratic that STARTS WITH 2X^2, 3X^2, etc., skip to time 6:46. 3) For NEGATIVE leading term like -X^2, skip to 13:34. 4) If there's NO X TERM (ex. 3x^2 - 121 = 0), then you cannot complete the square and can solve directly - skip to 16:30. Nancy formerly of MathBFF explains the steps.

How to complete the square when solving quadratic equations:

Completing the square means re-arranging the quadratic equation into the neat, "perfect square" form (x + number)^2 equals another number, or (x - number)^2 equals another number. The point of doing this is so that you can solve by just square-rooting both sides of the equation.

If your quadratic equation starts with...

1) just X^2 (for ex: x^2 + 6x - 7 = 0), move constant to right, add (6/2)^2 to both sides, write left side as perfect square, and square root both sides to solve. Remember you get PLUS and MINUS solutions when you square root the constant side.

2) 2X^2 or 3X^2 or 4X^2 etc. (for ex: 2x^2 - 10x - 3 = 0), move constant to right side, DIVIDE EVERY TERM by leading coefficient 2 on left and right side, add (5/2)^2 to both sides, write left side as perfect square and square root both sides to solve.

3) -X^2 or any negative coefficient (for ex: -x^2 - 6x + 7 = 0), move constant to right side, DIVIDE EVERY TERM by -1 on left and right side. (NOTE: if you had -2x^2 in your equation, you would divide every term by -2 on left and right side). Then add (6/2)^2 to both sides, write left side as perfect square and square root both sides to solve.

If you don't have an X term in equation, (for ex: 3x^2 - 121 = 0), then you cannot complete the square. Just move the constant to the right, divide both sides by 3, and square root both sides to solve. Remember plus and minus solutions on the right.

    you should get 2(x-(5/2))^2=(31/4)
    good video though

    This helped me a lot since our teacher doesn’t explain every step. I had no idea of the part where you have to square root the both sides. It just like magic how our teacher jumps from one step to another without any explanation.

  • Ophiuchus123456789 3 years ago

    Hello Nancy.
    These videos are great. I’ve immediately subscribed for three reasons: –
    1) I’ve taken on A level Maths and I’m struggling.
    2) Your teaching method is nice and slow. Clear and concise.
    3) You are very attractive so it’s extra motivation to watch your content.

    Cheers m’dears.

    Would the answer to that last have been: x+ square root of 3 = +- squaroot of 2?

    No radical expressions if it can be a short, terminating number! Seriously, you want to then evaluate -sqrt(3) all over 2??
    -5/2 is just -2.5, so (x – 2.5) = + – 7.75. Just solve this! It’s easy!

  • rant404 3 years ago

    Mistake at 17:33? (6/2)^2 = 3^2 = 9. On the RS 7 + 9 = 16 SR of 16 = +/- 4. SR of 25 should not be on the RS. Simple factoring gives answers of 1 and -7. Not -1 and 9 which (x – 4) = +/- 5 would yield.

    I think the main reason that Nancy is quite successful here is that she sets out why she is taking the steps she does (as some have mentioned). As a Math(s) teacher myself, I think another reason why some of those of you who have commented here think it’s easier to learn by watching a video is that, in class, the teacher is often distracted by disruptive pupils who try to make a game of stopping the learning process because they don’t want to be there in class. If you’ve taken the trouble to look this up on the internet then you’ve already invested some effort yourself, and you’ll take more interest in what’s happening, and you won’t have competing distractions either.

    It’s taught for a reason, cuz after this if a student wants to take further maths, or in A levels 1st year math, they can determine if the quadratic graph will be a bell or a U, also you get to the minima and Maxima, also you get to sketch a quadratic graph fast rather than plotting everytime.

    Last year, I fell sick and went into a coma. For a while, I had problems getting back my logic skills, but this year is different. I’ve reached an entirely higher level of my understanding of physics. I know where we came from and how we were created. Unequivocally, I do not agree with the bad things that happen here. I love you fellow human beings. I would help all of us, but that would take an extremely large amount of money, and a team of people who are extremely brilliant in mathematics, physics, chemistry, and biology. In addition, they would have to benevolent and trust worthy. I do not agree with the way we are being toyed with.

    First and third can be factored.
    1.) x^2 + 6x – 7 = 0
    (x + 7)(x – 1) = 0

    x + 7 = 0
    x = -7
    and
    x – 1 = 0
    x = 1

    3.) -x^2 – 6x + 7 = 0

    -1(x^2 + 6x – 7) = 0
    -1(x + 7)(x – 1) = 0

    -1(x + 7) = 0
    -x – 7 = 0
    -x = 7
    x = -7

    and
    -1(x – 1) = 0
    -x + 1 = 0
    -x = -1
    x = 1

    The second one is the only one that really needs “Completing the Square”.

    However, here’s a better way:
    Ax^2 + Bx + C = 0
    B/A C/A
    B/A * -1/2 = -B/(2A)

    (-B/(2A))^2 – (C/A) = (-B)^2/(4A^2) – C/A = (-B)^2/(4A^2) – (4AC)/(4A^2) = ((-B)^2 – (4AC))/(4A^2) = (B^2 – 4AC)/(4A^2)

    x = (-B/(2A)) + Sqrt((B^2 – 4AC)/(4A^2))
    x = (-B + Sqrt(B^2 – 4AC))/(2A)
    and
    x = (-B/(2A)) – Sqrt((B^2 – 4AC)/(4A^2))
    x = (-B – Sqrt(B^2 – 4AC))/(2A)

    Example 2x^2 – 10x – 3 = 0, solve for x.
    x = (-(-10) + Sqrt((-10)^2 – 4(2)(-3)))/(2(2))
    x = (10 + Sqrt(100 – (-24)))/4
    x = (10 + Sqrt(124))/4
    x = (10 + Sqrt(4 * 31))/4
    x = (10 + 2*Sqrt(31))/4
    x = (2 * (5 + Sqrt(31)))/4
    x = (5 + Sqrt(31))/2
    and
    x = (-(-10) – Sqrt((-10)^2 – 4(2)(-3)))/(2(2))
    x = (10 – Sqrt(100 – (-24)))/4
    x = (10 – Sqrt(124))/4
    x = (10 – Sqrt(4 * 31))/4
    x = (10 – 2*Sqrt(31))/4
    x = (2 * (5 – Sqrt(31)))/4
    x = (5 – Sqrt(31))/2

    So, the answers are:
    x = (5 + Sqrt(31))/2
    and
    x = (5 – Sqrt(31))/2

    the last one is even simpler
    4.) 3x^2 – 121 = 0
    x = Sqrt(-C/A)
    and
    x = – Sqrt(-C/A)

    x = Sqrt(-(-121)/3)
    x = Sqrt(121/3)
    x = 11/Sqrt(3)
    and
    x = -Sqrt(-(-121)/3)
    x = -Sqrt(121/3)
    x = -11/Sqrt(3)

  • Ken Haley 3 years ago

    At 1:30, you said “you can’t complete the square.” But you CAN! Just do this:
    3x^2 – 121 = 0
    3x^2 = 121 (adding 121 to both sides)
    x^2 = 121/3 (dividing both sides by 3)
    Now the left side is a perfect square! Proceed as in the other examples to get x = +|- sqrt(121/3), which is 11/sqrt(3), or (11 x sqrt(3))/3.
    It’s just like the other problems except the coefficient of the x-term (the middle term) is zero! Half of zero is zero, so you just end up with (x + 0)^2 on the left side, which is just x^2.

    Solve the 1st equation we see A+B+C=1+6-7=0 then definitely the result will be x=1 and x=C/A=7/1=7. It works all the time when we realize that A+B+C=0 then X=1, x=C/A

    For equations where the coefficient is greater than 1, e.g 2x^2, tis method allows you to find the points where it crosses the x axis but it changes the minimum point (-h,k). Be aware of that. Completing the square is often used to find turning point and method here wont always work for that.

  • Seth Ellis 3 years ago

    The usefulness of this is that most quadratics do not cross the x-axis at nice integer values. Factoring only works with nice values (no fractions or decimals), but completing the square and quad formula solve all quadratics including those that don’t cross the x axis at all (2 solutions in the imaginary number system). I prefer completing the square to quad formula when a=1 (no coefficient other than 1 on x² term). Usually it’s just add b² to both sides and simplify with a square root. Same solutions as quad formula and I think more efficient (unless we can use a spreadsheet just to enter a, b, and c). Oh, and completing the square is really valuable for other things like graphing conics.

    How do we know when to apply this method?

    (x – 3)^2 –> X^2 – 2.3X + 3^2 = 9 –> X^2 -6X = 0 –> X(X -6) = 0 –> x=0 and X=6

    We used to have glass windows in between the offices and they were great for brainstorming and we had a “leave it” note for the cleaner. It was great for communication. Everybody could see what everybody else was working on and could chip in and less time was wasted on formal unproductive meetings. That was the only thing which worked after they removed the drawing boards. CAD can never be as effective as a board for brainstorming or thinking aloud.

    I think it’s great that Nancy tells us that there are other, maybe better, ways to solve the equation! But of course, students still have to learn this method. Personally, I like the method, but that is personal preference. Great job, Nancy!

    on the first example. where does the “9” disappear once you get to (x+3) = 16? Or is it simply just once of those things in math we ignore once we used it to get the “16” to the right?
    Anyone?
