The word quadratic is derived from the Latin word quadratus which means square,
- The quadratic equation is generally represented as. ax²+bx+c=0 where a≠0 and a,b,c are constants, x is variable (unknown).
- Discriminant of the quadratic equation is (D) equals b²-4ac
- If the value b²-4ac>0 then the roots are real and distinct.
- If b²-4ac=0 then roots are real and equal.
- If b²-4ac<0 then roots are imaginary roots.
