Definition of a Quadratic Equation

A quadratic equation is an equation involving the square of a number which is the highest power in the equation.

It is usually in the form:

ax2 + bx + c = 0

where a, b and c are numbers, and x is an unknown.

It is also sometimes called a second degree polynomial equation.

Examples

The following equations are quadratic expressions:

x2 + 7x + 4

2y2 - 28

4a 2 - ½ a + 15

The following equations are NOT quadratic expressions:

x3 + 7x + 4

2y - 28

4a 5 - ½ a + 15

How to solve a quadratic equation

There are 2 main methods to use when solving a quadratic equation:

1) The factoring method - this is used for paticular cases when the solution involves integers or fractions

2) The formula method - this can be used for any quadratic equation

The worksheets on this page are designed to be solved using the factoring method (though you could use the formula method to solve the equations if you wish).

Factorising Quadratic Equation Worksheets

The sheets are arranged in order of difficulty to help introduce you into more complicated examples gradually.

  • Sheets 1 & 2 - positive values inside each bracket only
  • Sheet 3 - negative values inside each bracket only
  • Sheet 4 - one positive and one negative value in the brackets.
  • Sheets 5 to 8 - mixed quadratic equations with one x2, gradually getting harder.
  • Sheet 9 - mixed quadratic equations with 2x2, either both brackets positive or both negative
  • Sheets 10 to 11 - mixed quadratic equations with more than one x2
