While it’s true that you can solve a quadratic equation by finding the point of intersection on a graph, in this case, we’re going to approach it analytically.

The first thing we need to familiarize ourselves with are the standard form and factor form of a quadratic equation. You’ve probably already encountered the standard form of a second-degree equation: ax² + bx + c. This is what we call the standard form of a quadratic equation.

But why do we call it ‘quadratic’? Does it have something to do with a square (quadra)? No, it’s referred to as ‘quadratic’ because it’s a second-degree equation.

The term ‘quadratic’ might make you think of squares, but in this context, it signifies that it’s a second-degree polynomial. A second-degree polynomial means that the highest power is two. So today we’ll learn how to solve quadratic equations by factoring, see video below
