  1. Quadratic Equation is a polynomial equation of second degree. The general form of a quadratic equations is ax2+bx+c = 0.

    The contributions of the ancient Indian Mathematicians to quadratic equations are quite significant and extensive. Before 800BC Indian Mathematicians constructed 'altars' based on the solutions of quadratic equation ax2+bx+c =0, Aryabhatta gave a rule to sum the geometric series which involves the solution of a quadratic equation.

    Discriminant of Quadratic EquationBack to Top
    The following table shows the nature of the roots of a quadratic equation with rational coefficients.

    Discriminant 2 Square root
    = 0 perfect rational and equal
    > 0
    perfect or not perfect

    rational and unequal (or)

    irrational and unequal roots

    < 0 not perfect complex and conjugate roots in pair
    Formation of a Quadratic EquationBack to Top
    Let us form the quadratic equation whose roots are and .

    Then x = , y = are the roots

    Therefore x - = 0 and

    , y -

    so (x - ) (y -

    Maximum and Minimum Values of a Quadratic ExpressionBack to Top
    An expression of the type ax2+bx+c is called " quadratic expression".

    The quadratic expression ax2+bx+c takes different values as x takes different values.

    As x varies from - to + ax2+bx+c

    has a minimum value whenever a> 0.
    The minimum value of the quadratic expression is (4ac-b2 )/4a and it occurs at x = - b/2a.

    2. has a maximum value whenever a< 0.

    The maximum value of the quadratic expression is (4ac-b2 )/4a and it occurs at x = - b/2a.

    Quadratic Equation FormulaBack to Top
    The general form of a quadratic equations is ax2+bx+c = 0 .

    The set of all solutions of a quadratic equation is called its solution set. The values of x that make a quadratic equation true is called its roots or zeros or solutions. Quadratic equations can be solved by factorization method or by using quadratic formula

    x = (-b± √(b²-4ac))/(2a)

    quadratic formula

    [x = (-b+-sqrt(b] 2 [-4ac))/(2a)]

    [where b] 2 [ -4ac] [ is called the discriminant of the quadratic equation.] [ A quadratic equation has two roots. ]
