# Quadratic Equations

## What are Quadratic Equations

A quadratic equation is any equation with the general structure of:
where a ≠ 0. The name “quadratic coefficient” is given to the values of a,b & c. Quadratic equations are a major topic of secondary school algebra and
they remain important when doing higher mathematical studies.
### Solving Quadratics

Depending on the type of quadratic equation and if it can be factorised, we can apply the following techniques to solve it.
•
Factorisation
•
Competing the Square
•
Solve using Quadratic Formula
•
Solving graphically
We will teach you how to use almost all of these techniques to find the solution to any
quadratic equation.
### Sketching Quadratics

Quadratics can also represent parabolas on graphs. We can solve quadratics and then
sketch them to get a similar result as you can see on the right.
