#### Solutions

Chapter 1, Problem 13RCC

a.

To determine

## Write the general form of equation.

Expert Solution

ax+b=0

### Explanation of Solution

Given information:

Write the general form of equation.

A linear equation.

Calculation:

The equations which are polynomials of first or zero degree having graph that are lines call linear equations.

ax+b=0

a&b are constants.

Hence the linear equation is ax+b=0

b.

To determine

Expert Solution

ax2+bx+c

### Explanation of Solution

Given information:

Write the general form of equation.

Calculation:

The equations which are polynomials of 2 degree having graph that are parabolas.these equations are known as a quadratic equation and defined by.

ax2+bx+c

a,b,c are constants where a0 .

Hence, the quadratic equation is ax2+bx+c
