A quadratic equation is a second-order polynomial equation in a single variable x
with a != 0
The roots x can be found using the quadratic formula
There are three cases:
then there are two distinct roots, both of which are real numbers
then there is exactly one distinct real root, sometimes called a double root
then there are no real roots. Rather, there are two distinct (non-real) complex roots.
is called the discriminant of the quadratic equation
Using roots, polynomial equation can be expressed as
