The video tutorial is recommended for 5th Grade, 6th Grade, 7th Grade, 8th Grade, 9th Grade, 10th Grade, 11th Grade, and/or 12th Grade Math students studying Algebra, Pre-Algebra, Pre-Calculus, and/or Advanced Algebra.
In algebra, the discriminant of a polynomial with real or complex coefficients is a certain expression in the coefficients of the polynomial which is equal to zero if and only if the polynomial has a multiple root in the complex numbers.
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, a quadratic equation is a polynomial equation of the second degree. The general form is
ax2 + bx + 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 x2, 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.
