To determine the values of a, b, and c that are needed in order to use the Quadratic Formula

Explanation

Consider the following equation,

y2âˆ’4y=12â‡’y2âˆ’4yâˆ’12=0.

The general form of the quadratic equation is given below,

ax2+bx+c=0

Where a is the number multiplied by x2, b is the number multiplied by x, and c is the constant term.
