 General Quadratic Formula:

ax2+bx+c=0

+The simplest way to solve this general equation to find the value of x is the factor the quadratic.

+Set each factor equal to zero and then solve each factor.

+You use the a, b and c of this formula to plug into the like variable in the quadratic formula!
