TLDRIn this tutorial, the process of solving a quadratic equation is explained step by step. Starting with a substitution to simplify the equation, the video then guides through factorizing or applying the quadratic formula to find the values of y. After solving for y, the video reminds to revert back to the original variable x by solving x^2 = 9 and x^2 = 1, leading to the final solutions x = ±3, ±1. The summary emphasizes the importance of practicing quadratic equation solving and the quadratic formula for mastery.

### Takeaways

- 📚 Start by simplifying the equation with a substitution, let \( y = x^2 \).
- 🔍 After substitution, the equation becomes a quadratic equation: \( y^2 - 10y + 9 = 0 \).
- 📝 If unsure how to factorize, use the quadratic formula with \( a = 1 \), \( b = -10 \), and \( c = 9 \).
- 🧐 Simplify the expression under the square root in the quadratic formula, which results in \( \sqrt{100 - 36} = 8 \).
- 🔑 Substitute the simplified square root back into the quadratic formula to find the values of \( y \).
- 🎯 The values of \( y \) are \( y = 9 \) and \( y = 1 \).
- 🔄 Recall the initial substitution and solve for \( x \) in the equations \( x^2 = 9 \) and \( x^2 = 1 \).
- 📐 The solutions for \( x \) are \( x = 3 \), \( x = -3 \), \( x = 1 \), and \( x = -1 \).
- 👍 You have successfully solved the problem with the correct solutions.
- 📈 Practice solving quadratic equations and using the quadratic formula to improve your skills.
- 📝 Summarize the process: substitution, quadratic formula application, and solving for the variable after substitution.
