Solving Quadratic Equations What is a quadratic equation? An equation where the highest exponent of the variable (usually 'x') is squared, it is usually written as: a b c Why do we use the quadratic equation? The quadratic equation is used to find where a curve crosses the x axis on a Cartesian grid. Where might we use this in real life? What does it mean to solve a quadratic equation? Solving a quadratic equation means finding the 'x' values that make the equation true. These 'x' values are called roots of the quadratic.
