Exploring Factoring & 'FOIL' - II
- Judah L Schwartz
Click on new problem. A quadratic function f(x) appears (RED) A quadratic function of the form g(x) = (mx + b)(Mx + B) is also plotted. Use the m, b, M and B sliders to adjust g(x) so that it is equal to f(x) What can you learn from the difference function, f(x) - g(x) ? What can you learn from the graphs of the factors of the quadratic function ?
