An equation where the highest exponent of the variable (usually "x") is a square (2).

So it will have something like x

A Quadratic Equation is usually written a

Example: 2

So it will have something like x

^{2}, but not x^{3}etc.A Quadratic Equation is usually written a

**x**+ b^{2}**x**+ c = 0Example: 2

**x**+ 5^{2}**x**− 3 = 0See: Exponent
