Why do we use completing the square? (purpose?)

ReplyDeleteIt not only shows you the vertex, but makes it easer to solve.

There are also times when the form ax^2 + bx + c may be a part of a larger problem and rearranging it as a(x+d)^@+e makes the solution easier, because x only appears once.

For example "x" may itself be a function (like cos(z)) and rearranging it may open up a path to a better solution.

Also Completing the Square is the first step in the Derivation of the Quadratic Formula
