# Finding the Solution to a Quadratic Equation

This is an MCQ-based quiz for GRE on How To Find The Solution To A Quadratic Equation.

Quadratic equations are the polynomial equations of degree 2 in one variable of type f(x) = ax2 + bx + c where a, b, c, ∈ R and a ≠ 0. It is the general form of a quadratic equation where 'a' is called the leading coefficient and 'c' is called the absolute term of f (x).
