# What is the difference between a linear and a quadratic equation?

A

**quadratic**equation is only**different**from a**linear**equation in one respect: one or more of the figures is squared. (The word**quadratic**derives from the Latin word for squared) The common form of a**quadratic**equation is ax^{2}+ bx + c = 11. In such a equation, if a = 1, b = 2 and c = 3 then X must equal 2.A.

### How do you solve linear quadratic systems?

**How to Solve using Algebra**

- Make both equations into "y =" format.
- Set them equal to each other.
- Simplify into "= 0" format (like a standard Quadratic Equation)
- Solve the Quadratic Equation!
- Use the linear equation to calculate matching "y" values, so we get (x,y) points as answers.

#### What is linear quadratic equation?

Solving a**Linear**-**Quadratic System**. A**quadratic**equation is defined as an equation in which one or more of the terms is squared but raised to no higher power. The general form is ax^{2}+ bx + c = 0, where a, b and c are constants.#### How do you know if a table is a linear function?

You can**tell if a table is linear**by looking at how X and Y change.**If**, as X increases by 1, Y increases by a constant rate, then a**table is linear**. You can find the constant rate by finding the first difference.

**Linear**-**Quadratic System**. A**quadratic**equation is defined as an equation in which one or more of the terms is squared but raised to no higher power. The general form is ax^{2}+ bx + c = 0, where a, b and c are constants.#### How do you find the point of intersection?

Set the two equations for y equal to each other. Solve for x. This will be the x-coordinate for the**point of intersection**. Use this x-coordinate and plug it into either of the original equations for the lines and solve for y.#### What is the difference between union and intersection?

The**union**of two sets is a new set that contains all of the elements that are in at least one of the two sets. The**union**is written as A ∪ B or “ A or B ”.**Intersection**. The**intersection**of two sets is a new set that contains all of the elements that are in both sets. The**intersection**is written as A ∩ B or “ A and B ”#### How many planes can contain a line?

For example if the three points are A, B and C in your diagram then there are infinitely many planes that contain the points. I have illustrated**two**such planes in pink in the diagrams below. The final point is that if the three points do not lie on a line then there is exactly**one plane**that contains the points.
