Quadratic Equations

Topic Review on "Title":

Quadratic Equation:
A quadratic equation is a specific type of equation written on the standard form:
 where .
The Zero Product Rule:

If , then  or

Square Root Method:
If and are algebraic expressions such that then or

Completing the Square Method:
Completing the square consists of adding to both sides of an equation a positive number that can help factor a quadratic equation.

Quadratic Formula:
The solution of a quadratic equation of the form  depends on the sign of the discriminant .

Quadratic Inequality:
A quadratic inequality is a quadratic equation where the equality sign is replaced by an inequality.

Quadratic Function:
A quadratic function is a function where for each the real number  a, b, and c are real numbers with a not equal to 0.

A parabola is the graph of a quadratic function.

A vertex is the point where the parabola intersects the axis of symmetry.
