**quadratic equation**is an

**equation**of the second degree, meaning it contains at least one term that is squared. The standard form is ax² + bx + c = 0 with a, b, and c being constants, or numerical coefficients, and x is an unknown variable.

Also asked, what is quadratic equation in math?

In **math**, we define a **quadratic equation** as an **equation** of degree 2, meaning that the highest exponent of this function is 2. The standard form of a **quadratic** is y = ax^2 + bx + c, where a, b, and c are numbers and a cannot be 0. Examples of **quadratic equations** include all of these: y = x^2 + 3x + 1.

Similarly, what is a quadratic equation used for? As well as being a **formula** that yields the zeros of any parabola, the **quadratic formula** can also be **used** to identify the axis of symmetry of the parabola, and the number of real zeros the **quadratic equation** contains.

Besides, what makes a problem quadratic?

In mathematics, a **quadratic** is a type of **problem** that deals with a variable multiplied by itself — an operation known as squaring. This language derives from the area of a square being its side length multiplied by itself. The word "**quadratic**" comes from quadratum, the Latin word for square.

What is a quadratic expression?

A **quadratic expression** is any mathematical **expression** whose power or degree is two. In other words, any **expression** that uses variables where the highest exponent or the **expression's** degree is two is a **quadratic expression**.
