__ Quadratic Formula: __an equation which the highest power of an unknown quality is a square! This is to solve for the roots or zeros of the quadratic equation!

General Quadratic Formula:

ax^{2}+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!

**Quadratic Formula! **

+This Quadratic formula can __always__ find the solution!
