    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.

    this is an expression of the form

    ax^2 + bx + c

    quadratic equation
    this is an equation of the form

    ax^2 + bx + c = 0

    solution
    these are the values that solve an equation.

    for instance, this would be the set of x-values that solve the quadratic equation above

    a,b, and c are real constants
