...Quadratic Equation:
Quadratic equations have many applications in the arts and sciences, business, economics, medicine and engineering. Quadratic Equation is a second-order polynomial equation in a single variable x.
A general quadratic equation is:
ax2 + bx + c = 0,
Where,
x is an unknown variable
a, b, and c are constants (Not equal to zero)
Special Forms:
* x² = n if n < 0, then x has no real value
* x² = n if n > 0, then x = ± n
* ax² + bx = 0 x = 0, x = -b/a
WAYS TO SOLVE QUADRATIC EQUATION
The ways through which quadratic equation can be solved are:
* Factorizing
* Completing the square
* Derivation of the quadratic formula
* Graphing for real roots
Quadratic Formula:
Completing the square can be used to derive a general formula for solving quadratic equations, the quadratic formula. The quadratic formula is in these two forms separately:
Steps to derive the quadratic formula:
All Quadratic Equations have the general form, aX² + bX + c = 0
The steps to derive quadratic formula are as follows:
Quadratic equations and functions are very important in business mathematics. Questions related to quadratic equations and functions cover a wide range of business concepts that includes COST-REVENUE, BREAKEVEN ANALYSIS, SUPPLY/DEMAND & MARKET EQUILIBRIUM....

...Quadratic equation
In elementary algebra, a quadratic equation (from the Latin quadratus for "square") is any equation having the form
where x represents an unknown, and a, b, and c represent known numbers such that a is not equal to 0. If a = 0, then the equation is linear, not quadratic. The numbers a, b, and c are the coefficients of the equation, and may be distinguished by calling them, the quadratic coefficient, the linear coefficient and the constant or free term.
Solving the quadratic equation
A quadratic equation with real or complex coefficients has two solutions, called roots. These two solutions may or may not be distinct, and they may or may not be real.
Factoring by inspection
It may be possible to express a quadratic equation ax2 + bx + c = 0 as a product (px + q)(rx + s) = 0. In some cases, it is possible, by simple inspection, to determine values of p, q, r, and s that make the two forms equivalent to one another. If the quadratic equation is written in the second form, then the "Zero Factor Property" states that the quadratic equation is satisfied if px + q = 0 or rx + s = 0. Solving these two linear equations provides the roots of the quadratic.
Completing the square
The process of completing the square makes use of the algebraic identity...

...There are now two separate equations: 60 = 6b - 6c and 60 = 3b + 3c
Solve both equations for b: b = 10 + c b = 10 - c
Now make both equations equal each other and solve for c: 10 + c = 10 - c 2c = 0 c = 0
The speed of the current was 0 mph Now, plug the numbers into one of either the original equations to find the speed of the boat in still water.
I chose the first equation: b = 10 + c or b = 10 + 0 b = 10
The speed of the boat in still water must remain a consistent 10 mph or more in order for Wayne and his daughter to make it home in time or dinner.
My Solution: c = current of river b = rate of boat d = s(t) will represent (distance = speed X time) Upstream: 60 = 6(b-c)
Downstream: 60 = 3(b+c)
There are now two separate equations: 60 = 6b - 6c and 60 = 3b + 3c
Solve both equations for b: b = 10 + c b = 10 - c
Now make both equations equal each other and solve for c: 10 + c = 10 - c 2c = 0 c = 0
The speed of the current was 0 mph Now, plug the numbers into one of either the original equations to find the speed of the boat in still water.

...Balancing Equations
Balancing equations is a fundamental skill in Chemistry. Solving a system of linear equations is a fundamental skill in Algebra. Remarkably, these two field specialties are intrinsically and inherently linked.

1. Determine the correct formulas for all the reactants and products in the reaction.
2. Write the formulas for the reactants on the left and the formulas for the products on the right with an arrow in between. If two or more reactants or products are involved, separate their formulas with plus signs.
3. Count the number of atoms of each element in the reactants a products. A polyatomic ion appearing unchanged on both sides of the equation is counted as a single unit.
4. Balance the elements one at a time by using coefficients. A is a small whole number that appears in front of a formula a an equation. When no coefficient is written, it is assumed to be 1. It is best to begin with an element other than hydrogen or oxygen. These two elements often occur more than twice in an equation.
5. Check each atom or polyatomic ion to be sure that the equation is balanced....

...
The short story Cold Equations by Tom Godwin takes place on a ship called EDS. The space cruiser is piloted by a man named Barton. He has an order of killing the stowaway who snuck onto the ship because the weight on the EDS is too much for the ship to handle. In the process of hunting down the stowaway, he realizes it was a young innocent girl named Marilyn. Once Barton understands what kind of person Marilyn is, he doesn’t kill her immediately because he knows her reasons were pure. Marilyn only wanted to see her brother, Gerry, again after ten years of being apart and was ignorant to the fact that her life can end with the decision of sneaking onto the ship. Barton begins to feel compassion after being with her and tries to comfort her, but knows what her fate is. He lets Marilyn live long enough to let her speak with Gerry once more before he follows through with the command. After Gerry and Marilyn speak he ejects her out into space. The ending was logical and no other endings would be possible because one the equation that was calibrated delicately, and two Barton could not throw the out the fever serums because that is the main reason for going on the trip to Woden.
A theoretical ending of Cold Equations could have been that Barton sacrifices himself for Marilyn, but since she is lighter than him, the fragile calibrated equation would be disrupted due to the change in weight. On EDS everything on ship is...
