# Quadratic Formula

When in doubt, use the quadratic formula! This formula allows us to solve any type of quadratic equation.

If the equation can be factored, factoring is usually the quicker
method. However, not all equations can be factored easily. In this
case, the quadratic formula always works. It just takes a little more
time due to the heavy computation. But... it's not hard.

Once you substitute the values for a, b, and c, you'll just need to use
some basic math to arrive at the solution. It's really pretty easy.
Take a look!
