In this section we are going to look at equations which are called quadratic in form or reducible to quadratic in form. What it means is that we will be looking at equations that if we look at them in the accurate light we can make them look like quadratic equations. At that point we can employ the techniques we developed for quadratic equations to help us with the solution of the actual equation.
Usually it is best with these to demonstrate the procedure with an example so let's do that.
