## SOLVING QUADRATIC
EQUATIONS

**
Note:
**

**
**

** A quadratic equation is a polynomial equation of degree 2.
**

** The ''U'' shaped graph of a quadratic is called a parabola.
**

** A quadratic equation has two solutions. Either two distinct real
solutions, one double real solution or two imaginary solutions.
**

** There are several methods you can use to solve a quadratic equation :
**
- Factoring
- Completing the Square
- Quadratic Formula
- Graphing

** All methods start with setting the equation equal to zero.
**

**Solve for x in the following equation.**
