# Solving Problems Using Quadratic Equations

And many questions involving time, distance and speed need quadratic equations.These word problems involve situations I've discussed in other word problems: The area of a rectangle, motion (time, speed, and distance), and work. Just don't forget that when you solve a quadratic equation, you must have the equation set equal to 0.

There are many types of problems that can easily be solved using your knowledge of quadratic equations.

You may come across problems that deal with money and predicted incomes (financial) or problems that deal with physics such as projectiles.

The first sentence says one is the square of the other, so I can write The sum is 132, so Plug into and solve for B: The possible solutions are and .

The difference of two numbers is 2 and their product is 224.
