How to use a quadratic equation calculator?

Calculator Use This online calculator is a quadratic equation solver that will solve a second-order polynomial equation such as ax 2 + bx + c = 0 for x, where a ≠ 0, using the quadratic formula. The calculator solution will show work using the quadratic formula to solve the entered equation for real and complex roots.

What does ± mean in a quadratic equation?

About the Quadratic Formula Plus/Minus. First of all what is that plus/minus thing that looks like ±? The ± means there are TWO answers: x = −b + √(b 2 − 4ac) 2a. x = −b − √(b 2 − 4ac) 2a. Here is an example with two answers: But it does not always work out like that! Imagine if the curve “just touches” the x-axis.

We’re not big fans of you memorizing formulas, but this one is useful (and we think you should learn how to derive it as well as use it, but that’s for the second video!). Then the formula will help you find the roots of a quadratic equation, i.e. the values of where this equation is solved.

Do you know the derivation of the quadratic formula?

Only the use of the quadratic formula, as well as the basics of completing the square will be discussed here (since the derivation of the formula involves completing the square). Below is the quadratic formula, as well as its derivation.
