Quadratic Formula Calculator

The Quadratic Formula Calculator is a handy tool that allows you to solve quadratic equations step by step. Simply enter the coefficients a, b, and c of the quadratic equation, and the calculator will calculate the roots and display the detailed steps involved in the process. It provides insights into the discriminant and its significance in determining the nature of the roots.

Second-Order Polynomial Equation: ax^2 + bx + c = 0

* The Quadratic Formula Calculator assumes that the coefficient “a” in the quadratic equation (ax^2 + bx + c = 0) is non-zero. If the coefficient “a” is zero, the equation becomes a linear equation rather than a quadratic equation.

In the case where “a” is zero, the equation simplifies to bx + c = 0, and the solution can be found directly by isolating the variable “x”. However, this calculator is specifically designed for solving quadratic equations, so it may not provide accurate results or handle cases where “a” is zero.
