Re: Solving Quadratic Functions by GraphingWhat do you mean, "if the equation is really long"? By definition, a quadratic can only have 3 terms. It can't be any longer than that. All quadratic equations take the form of: "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..."
