# How Do I Solve Quadratic Equations For Their Roots?

One of the most common questions I’m asked by students is “how do I solve quadratic equations for their roots?” The ability to solve quadratic equations for their roots is essential to every algebra student, and that’s why I will cover the three ways to solve quadratics in this section.

There are three ways to solve this equation for its roots: factoring, completing the square, and the quadratic formula.

The first step in using any of these methods successfully is to understand what a quadratic equation is. A quadratic equation is a polynomial where the greatest exponent is 2. These methods only work on equations where the greatest exponent is 2. The next step is to understand what exactly the roots of a quadratic are. The roots of a quadratic are the values of x that satisfy

and graphically the points where the curve crosses the x axis.
