Question and answer
Q: When the following quadratic equation is written in general form, what is the value of "c"?
A: Often, the simplest way to solve "ax2 + bx + c = 0" for the value of x is to factor the quadratic, set each factor equal to zero, and then solve each factor. [ But sometimes the quadratic is too messy, or it doesn't factor at all, or you just don't feel like factoring. While factoring may not always be successful, the Quadratic Formula can always find the solution. The Quadratic Formula uses
the "a", "b", and "c" from "ax2 + bx + c", where "a", "b", and "c" are just numbers; they are the "numerical coefficients". The Formula is derived from the process of completing the square, and is formally stated as: For ax2 + bx + c = 0, the value of x is given by: x = [ -b ? sqrt(b^2 - 4ac) ] / 2a For the Quadratic Formula to work, you must have your equation arranged in the form "(quadratic) = 0". Also, the "2a" in the denominator of the Formula is underneath everything above, not just the square root. And it's a "2a" under there, not just a plain "2". Make sure that you are careful not to drop the square root or the "plus/minus" in the middle of your calculations, or I can guarantee that you will forget to "put them back" on your test, and you'll mess yourself up. Remember that "b2" means "the square of ALL of b, including its sign", so don't leave b2 being negative, even if b is negative, because the square of a negative is a positive. ]

y(y + 4) - y2 = 6 is a quadratic equation User: y(y + 4) - y2 = 6 is a quadratic equation true or false
Weegy: False. y(y 4) - y = 6 is written as: y^5 -y - 6 = 0. A quadratic equation is a second-order polynomial equation in a single variable y and this is not a second order polynomial equation. User: Which of the following points is in the solution set of y Weegy: 4(x - 1) - 2(x2 + 2x + 3) - 6(x + 9)= -2x2-6x -64 is the answer User: Which of the following points lies on the circle whose center is at the origin and whose radius is 13 User: Which of the following points lies on the circle whose center is at the origin and whose radius is 13 (-5, 12) (6, -7) Weegy: The answer is: (-5, 12).
