Step-by-step explanation:

The quadratic expression in the standard form is given by :

f(x) = + bx + c

(b) To complete the square:

Divide the equation through by a , the equation then becomes

f(x)= + +

At this point, you are require to

(i) multiply the coefficient of x by 1/2

(ii) square the result

(iii) add the result to both sides , we have

f(x) = + + + + by completing the square , we have

f(x) = + . We did this in order to make the expression balance

(c) Using the order of operation to turn the expression back into standard form

i. Expand the function in the bracket , we have

f(x) = + + +

⇒ f(x) = + + +

⇒f(x) =   + +

multiply through by the L.C.M , which is a , then we have

f(x) = – bx + c .

Since the aim of completing the square is to make the expression a perfect square , then it will always result in a perfect square trinomial.
