## FAQs on RS Aggarwal Solutions: Quadratic Equations (Exercise 4D) - Mathematics (Maths) Class 10

 1. What are Quadratic Equations? Ans. Quadratic equations are polynomial equations of the second degree, which means the highest power of the variable is 2. They are written in the form ax^2 + bx + c = 0, where a, b, and c are constants and 'a' cannot be zero.
 2. How do you solve quadratic equations? Ans. Quadratic equations can be solved using various methods such as factoring, completing the square, and using the quadratic formula. The method to be used depends on the complexity of the equation and the available information.
 3. What is the quadratic formula? Ans. The quadratic formula is a formula used to solve quadratic equations of the form ax^2 + bx + c = 0. It states that the solutions for x can be found using the formula: x = (-b ± √(b^2 - 4ac)) / 2a.
 4. Can quadratic equations have more than two solutions? Ans. No, quadratic equations can have at most two solutions. This is because a quadratic equation of the form ax^2 + bx + c = 0 can be factored into (x - x1)(x - x2) = 0, where x1 and x2 are the solutions. Therefore, there can be at most two values of x that satisfy the equation.
 5. What is the discriminant of a quadratic equation? Ans. The discriminant of a quadratic equation is the part of the quadratic formula that is inside the square root, i.e., b^2 - 4ac. It helps determine the nature of the solutions. If the discriminant is greater than zero, the equation has two distinct real solutions. If the discriminant is equal to zero, the equation has one real solution. If the discriminant is less than zero, the equation has two complex conjugate solutions.
