# Quadratic Equations Questions and Answers

**Questions on Quadratic Equations **

If you’re looking to master quadratic equations, understanding and practicing various questions on this topic is essential. Quadratic equations are second-degree polynomial equations with the general form ax^2 + bx + c = 0, where ‘a’, ‘b’, and ‘c’ are constants. These equations have two solutions, called roots, which can be found using methods like factoring, completing the square, or using the quadratic formula.

**Methods for finding roots of Quadratic Equation**

The roots or solutions of a quadratic equation are the values of ‘x’ that satisfy the equation, making it true. A quadratic equation can have two real roots, two complex roots, or one real root (in case of a perfect square). The number of roots is determined by the value of the discriminant (Δ) given by:

Δ =** b^{2}-4ac**

- If Δ > 0, the quadratic equation has two distinct real roots.
- If Δ = 0, the quadratic equation has one real root (repeated or equal roots).
- If Δ < 0, the quadratic equation has two complex roots (conjugate pairs).

To find the roots of a quadratic equation, several methods can be used:

**Factoring:**If the equation can be factored, the roots can be directly determined from the factors.

x = \frac{(-b\pm \sqrt{b^{2}-4ac})}{2a}**Quadratic Formula:**The quadratic formula is a general method to find the roots of any quadratic equation and is given by:where the ± sign accounts for the two possible solutions.

**Completing the Square:**This method involves transforming the quadratic equation into a perfect square form, from which the roots can be easily obtained.

**Rules for Quadratic Equations**

- If p+ √q is a root of a quadratic equation, then its other root is p-√q.
- When D ≥ 0, then rx^2+ dx + z can be expressed as a product of two linear factors.
- If α and β are the roots of rx^2+ dx + z, then we can write it as: x^2 – (α + β)x + α β = 0.
