In mathematics, a quadratic equation is a polynomial equation of the second degree. Thegeneral form is

0
axbxc
+ + =
where a
0. (For a = 0, the equation becomes alinear equation.)The letters a, b, and c are called coefficients: thequadratic coefficient a is the coefficient of x2, thelinear coefficient b is the coefficient of x, and c isthe constant coefficient, also called the free term or constant term.

FactorisationExample
Solve
x
2
+ 5x + 6 = 0.

x
2
+ 5x + 6 = (x + 2)(x + 3)
Set this equal to zero:
(x + 2)(x + 3) = 0
Solve each factor:
x + 2 = 0 or x + 3 = 0 x = –2
or
x = – 3
The solution of
x2 + 5x + 6 = 0
is
x = –3, –2
