Quadratics usually have an x-squared, an x term and a number on it’s own (known as a constant). There are a few different ways to solve quadratics: factorising, using the quadratic formula or by completing the square. In this video we look at solving by factorising.
Solving just means to find values of x that satisfy the quadratic. Usually there will be 2 solutions, but sometimes there is just 1 and sometimes there are no solutions.
The solutions are also known as roots. When we factorise, we usually end up with two brackets. E.g x^2 + 2x - 8 factorises to become (x + 4)(x - 2). To solve this factorised quadratic, we make each bracket equal to zero and solve the mini-equations from there. x + 4 = 0 and x - 2 = 0. Solve these and we get x = -4 and x = 2. Two different solutions (or roots). If we plotted this quadratic, these two roots are where the curve crosses the x-axis.

In this video, we are going to look at parallel lines. To find the equation of parallel lines, we still use the y=mx + c equation, and because they have the same gradient, we know straight away that the gradient ‘m’ will be the same. We then just need to find the missing y-intercept ‘c’ value.

Plants have developed responses called tropisms. A tropism is a growth in response to a stimulus; so light and water in the plant’s case.
There are different types of tropisms: Positive tropisms are when growth is towards the stimulus - so the plant growing towards the light to maximise the stimul
