## Step by step guide to solve Solving Quadratic Inequalities

- A quadratic inequality is one that can be written in one of the following standard forms:

\(ax^2+bx+c>0, ax^2+bx+c<0, ax^2+bx+c≥0, ax^2+bx+c≤0\) - Solving a quadratic inequality is like solving equations. We need to find solutions.

### Solving Quadratic Inequalities – Example 1:

Solve quadratic inequality. \(x^2-6x+8>0\)

**Solution:**

Factor: \(x^2-6x+8>0→(x-2)(x-4)>0\)

Then the solution could be \(x<2\) or \(x>4\).

### Solving Quadratic Inequalities – Example 2:

Solve quadratic inequality. \(x^2-7x+10≥0\)

**Solution:**

Factor: \(x^2-7x+10≥0→(x-2)(x-5)≥0\). \(\space\) \(2\) and \(5\) are the solutions. Now, the solution could be \(x≤2\) or \(x≥5\).

### Solving Quadratic Inequalities – Example 3:

Solve quadratic inequality. \(- x^2-5x+6>0\)

**Solution:**

Factor: \(- x^2-5x+6>0→-(x-1)(x+6)>0\)

Multiply both sides by \(-1: (-(x-1)(x+6))(-1)>0(-1)→(x-1)(x+6)<0\) Then the solution could be \(-6x\) and \(x>1\). Choose a value between \(-1\) and \(6\) and check. Let’s try \(0\). Then: \(- 0^2-5(0)+6>0→6>0\). This is true! So, the answer is: \(-6<x<1\)

### Solving Quadratic Inequalities – Example 4:

Solve quadratic inequality. \(x^2-3x-10≥0\)

**Solution:**

Factor: \(x^2-3x-10≥0→(x+2)(x-5)≥0. -2\) and \(5\) are the solutions. Now, the solution could be \(x≤-2\) or \(x≥5\).
