# How to Solve Quadratic Inequalities? (+FREE Worksheet!)

Learn how to solve Quadratic Inequalities using similar methods that we use for solving equations. ## 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 $$x≥5$$.
