Unit 3 - Quadratic Equations

Quadratic equations are any equations having the form , where  represents an unknown, and , and  represent known numbers such that 

The quadratic equation only contains powers of  that are non-negative integers, and therefore it is a polynomial equation, and in particular it is a second degree polynomial equation since the greatest power is two.

Quadratic equations can be solved by:
  • Factoring technique
  • Square Root Technique
  • Completing the Square Technique
  • Quadratic Formula Technique
  • Graphing Technique
