What is a quadratic expression? A quadratic expression have a general form of
ax
2
+ bx + c
where a, b and c are constant, a
0 and x is a variable. For example,
2x
2
+7x +5
and
3x
2
+ 6
How
to recognize
onevariable
and the
highest power is up to 2
only.For example ,
2x
3
+ 4x

-5
and
6x
2
+xy

Example 1
Expand ( x + 4)(x + 7) to form a quadratic expression.Tips : Multiply one by one
= x
2
+ 7x + 4x + 28 ( 4 arrows means 4 terms )

= x
2
+ 11x + 28 ( Quadratic expression)
Example 2
Expand (2x + 1 )

Tips :

We have two methods in solving this. You can use either one. But the 2
nd
method would be
much faster and easier
! For the 2
nd
method, the general methodis like this
(ax + b)
2
= (ax)
2
+ 2(ax)(b) + (b)
