### What does it mean if the quadratic equation has no solution?

Generally, when we say a quadratic equation has no solutions, it
means that the graph does not cross the x-axis at all.
In other words, it means that there are no values for x when y
equals 0 (because the line y=0 IS the x-axis.)
Hope that helps.

### How do you create a function to calculate the roots of any given quadratic equation?

First rewrite the quadratic equation in the form: ax2 + bx + c =
0 where a , b and c are constant coefficients. Clearly, a is not =
0 for if it were then you would have a linear equation and not a
quadratic.
Then the roots of the quadratic are:
x = [-b +/- sqrt(b2 - 4ac)]/2a
where using the + and - values of the square root result in two
solutions.

### How do you solve for x in the equation x2-2x-2 equals 0?

To solve for x in the equation x2 - 2x - 2 = 0, use the
quadratic equation, that is:
For 0 = ax2 + bx + c, the roots (values of x) are defined
as:
x = [-b +/- sqrt(b2 - 4ac) ] / 2a
(If that's hard to understand, google "quadratic formula").
It works out to x = 2.73, -0.73.
