In elementary algebra, a quadratic equation is any equation having the form where x represents an unknown, and a, b, and c represent known numbers such that a is not equal to 0
word problems
In mathematics education, a word problem is a mathematical exercise where significant background information on the problem is presented as text rather than in mathematical notation
cubic equation
In algebra, a cubic function is a function of the form where a is nonzero
