Question about Casio FX-115ES Scientific Calculator

I want to solve an quadratic equation with complex coefficients such as: z^2-(5-i)z+8-i=0 How should I proceed in order to do that?

Your scientific calculator is unable to solve complex equation with complex coefficients. You should try to solve by hand directly using the quadratic formula or by factoring the polynomial in z

failing that, another way would be to set z=x+iy, substitute this for z, carry out the algebra and try to separate real and imaginary parts. But your two equations will constitute a system of two quadratic equations. I am not aware of any general method to solve coupled nonlinear equations.

Good luck.

SOURCE: want to solve quadratic equations on my casio 3650p super fx

Hello,

In your manual, Appendix Program Library, (Page A1) you have the listing of the problem to solve the quadratic equation. Type it in your calculator and execute it.

Hope it helps.

This calculator is unable to factor a polynomial expression.

In general there are a few factoring methods

In general there are a few factoring methods

**Factor by grouping terms****Factor by completing the square**(quadratic polynomial)**Factor by finding two integers such their sum is equal to the coefficient of the middle term, and their product is equal to the third (constant term)**. This is valid for a quadratic polynomial where the leading coefficient (of the x^2 term) is equal to 1.**X^2+SX+P**

In equation mode, you have system of linear equations (3 unknown) you have polynomial (quadratic and cubic), and solver. Use the solver foe any type of equation (nonlinear, polynomial of order higher than 4, trigonometric, exponential, logs).

Thhe Casio FX-9860G SD can solve a polynomial equation
of degree 2 or 3 with REAL coefficients. If the complex MODE is set to
REAL it will find the real roots. If the complex mode is set to** a+ib**, it will find the real and complex roots.

Apparently it will take coefficients that are real, and will give a Ma Error if any coefficient is complex.

Addendum.

The calculator CANNOT solve equations with complex coefficient. YOU can however convert the system of linear equations with ccomplex coefficients ( of the type you show) as a system of 4 linear equations in 4 unknowns; Split x into a real and an imaginary part, split y into a real and an imaginary part. Substitute Real(x)+iIm(x) for variable x in the equations; substitute Real(y)+iIm(y) for y in the two equations; do the algebra. In each of the original equations split the Real and imaginary parts. You should be able to derive 4 linear equations in unknowns Real(x), Im(x), Real(y), and Im(y).

Use the linear equation solver to obtain the solutions. Recompose x=Real(x)+iIm(x), and y=Real(y)+iIm(y)

Alternatively, after you create the system of 4 linear equations you can use the matrix utility to find Real(x), Im(x), Real(y) and Im(y) and recompose the x and y.

Apparently it will take coefficients that are real, and will give a Ma Error if any coefficient is complex.

Press MODE 5 to bring up the equation types. Press 3 for the quadratic. Enter the three coefficients. Press = to see the first root. If the display shows x1 then press down to see the other other root. If the display only shows x then that's a double root. Given the two roots x1 and x2, the factors of the quadratic are (x-x1) and (x-x2).

Unless I am failing to understand your problem, just combine like terms to get:

9x^2+2x+4 and then enter those coefficients into the quadratic solver.

That will get you the two answers -- both of them will be complex.

If you wanted to turn those two answers into factors (complex) of the original equation simply

change the signs on each and put an x in front.

Of course, the quadratic formula would also work.
