I’ve been trying to research how to do the quadratic formula step by step, but I’m just not understanding it (ps: I’m not in high-school, so I can’t just ask my teacher for help). I already know the Pythagorean Theorem and can solve Algebra II equations, so don’t underestimate me please just because I’m a seventh grader! And if you burn me about being a nerd I’ll report you. You have been warned.

Please provide an example of solving an equation if possible!

(-b +/- (sqrt (b^2 – 4ac))) / 2a = x

when ax^2 + bx + c = 0

so in 3x^2 – 4x – 3 = 0:

(4 +/- (sqrt (16 + 36)) / 6) = x

x = 1.87 (2dp)

x = -0.54 (2dp)
