In this lesson, we continue to explore the use of the quadratic formula to solve quadratic equations. We learn that when faced with equations in standard form with complex fractions, multiplying by the least common denominator can help eliminate the fractions and simplify the problem. Additionally, the lesson introduces the concept of completing the square as an alternate method to solve quadratic equations. Both methods lead to the same solutions, but completing the square may be easier for some individuals.
