## What are the steps for solving a quadratic equation?

Steps to solve quadratic equations by factoring: 1. Write the equation in standard form (equal to 0). 2. Factor the polynomial. 3. Use the Zero Product Property to set each factor equal to zero. 4. Solve each resulting linear equation.

## Which method to solve a quadratic equation?

Method 1 of 3: Factoring the Equation. Combine all of the like terms and move them to one side of the equation.

• Method 2 of 3: Using the Quadratic Formula. Combine all of the like terms and move them to one side of the equation. Write down the quadratic formula.
• Method 3 of 3: Completing the Square. Move all of the terms to one side of the equation.
• How do you calculate the quadratic equation?

A quadratic equation is written as #ax^2+bx+c# in its standard form. And the vertex can be found by using the formula #-b/(2a)#. For example, let’s suppose our problem is to find out vertex (x,y) of the quadratic equation #x^2+2x-3# . 1) Assess your a, b and c values. In this example, a=1, b=2 and c=-3.
