WEBWorked example. First we need to identify the values for a, b, and c (the coefficients). First step, make sure the equation is in the format from above, a x 2 + b x + c = 0 : is what makes it a quadratic). Then we plug a , b , and c into the formula: solving this looks like: Therefore x = 3 or x = − 7 .
