Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, you will learn how to find the solutions of a quadratic equation. The first step is to get the quadratic, linear, and constant terms on the same side and equal to 0. Then, you can either use the method of factoring or the box method to obtain the two binomial factors. Finally, you can solve for x by setting each factor equal to 0 and solving for x.

How to find the solutions of a quadratic equation

I show how to solve math problems online during live instruction in class. This is my way of providing free tutoring for the students in my class and for students anywhere in the world. Every video is a short clip that shows exactly how to solve math problems step by step. The problems are done in real time and in front of a regular classroom. These videos are intended to help you learn how to solve math problems, review how to solve a math problems, study for a test, or finish your homework. I post all of my videos on YouTube, but if you are looking for other ways to interact with me and my videos you can follow me on the following pages through My Blog, Twitter, or Facebook.
