hey i have to write a math paper and i was lookin for some good definitions for the following terms:
quadratic polynomial
quadratic equation
solution
Quadratic polynomial - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Quadratic equation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
an explanation of the solution to a quadratic equation is explained in the quadratic equation link.
btw ... found these using google.
not much to say here. i suppose you are talking about real polynomialsthis is an expression of the form
$\displaystyle ax^2 + bx + c$
this is an equation of the formquadratic equation
$\displaystyle ax^2 + bx + c = 0$
these are the values that solve an equation.solution
for instance, this would be the set of x-values that solve the quadratic equation above
a,b, and c are real constants
