Question 487494: Explian the four steps for solving quadratic equations? Can any of these steps be eliminated? Can the order of the these steps be changed? Would you add any steps to make it easier,or to make it easier to understand? Answer by richard1234(5390) (Show Source):
You can put this solution on YOUR website! Either complete the square or factor. If neither of these work very well, you can use the quadratic formula. But you only need to use one method (as long as you do your arithmetic correctly). As to eliminating/adding steps, there is no need to do so, and no need to change the steps. I can't really answer those questions; you'll learn much better by practicing solving quadratic equations.
