The quadratic equation in standard form is: ax2 + bx + c = 0.

The solution is x = [-b ± √b2- 4ac)] ÷ 2a

You can use either plus or minus - a quadratic equation may have two solutions.

How do you find the answer to a quadratic equation from the quadratic formula?

Plug 'a', 'b', and 'c' from the equation into the formula. When you do that, the formula becomes a pair of numbers ... one number when you pick the 'plus' sign, and another number when you pick the 'minus' sign. Those two numbers are the 'solutions' to the quadratic equation you started with.
