Write a quadratic equation having the given number as solutions:

c/2 and d/2

• math -

• math -

I will use x as my variable

if x = c/2 then 2x-c = 0
if x = d/2 then 2x-d = 0

(2x-c)(2x-d) = 0

expand it to get it into general form

OR

sum of roots = c/2 + d/2 = (c+d)/2
product of roots = cd/4

equation: x^2 - (c+d)/2 x + cd/4 = 0 or
4x^2 - (c+d)x + cd = 0

• CORRECTION math -

last line should read:
4x^2 - 2(c+d)x + cd = 0
