An equation is a mathematical statement, in symbols, that two things are the same (or equivalent). Equations are written with an equal sign. Equations are often used to state the equality of two expressions containing one or more variables.

In mathematics, factoring is the decomposition of an object (for example, a number, a polynomial, or a matrix) into a product of other objects, or factors, which when multiplied together give the original.

In mathematics, a quadratic equation is a polynomial equation of the second degree. The general form is

*a*x^{2} + *b*x + *c* = 0

where a ≠ 0. (For a = 0, the equation becomes a linear equation.)

The letters*a*, *b*, and *c* are called coefficients: the quadratic coefficient *a* is the coefficient of x^{2}, the linear coefficient *b* is the coefficient of x, and *c* is the constant coefficient, also called the free term or constant term.

Quadratic equations are called quadratic because quadratus is Latin for "square"; in the leading term the variable is squared.
