[AM_20151226EIQR] Looking for a Pea among Quadratic Roots?


     This question is about finding the parameter  p, and not about solving for the “unknown”  x.  It is heavy on algebra, one has to be patient, careful and meticulous.  Please refer to this article for a recapitulation of (Vieta’s) theory of Quadratic Roots.


H04. Look for pattern(s)
H05. Work backwards
H13* Use Equation / write a Mathematical Sentence

Suitable Levels
GCE ‘O’ Level Additional Mathematics
* other syllabuses that involve quadratic roots
* any learner who is interested
