The Quad


A quadratic function is a function of the form

f(x) = ax2 + bx + c

where a, b and c are real numbers and a is not equal to zero(0). The graph of the quadratic function is called a parabola. It is a U shaped curve that may open up or down depending on the sign of coefficient a.

x2+ x+ =0

The area bounded by the curve above the x-axis is: sq. units.
The value of the curve occurs at co-ordinates: .

The Quadratic Equation

x =
-b +  sqrt(b2-4ac)
b2-4ac  is called the discriminant (d).
