## A Worked example to illustrate how the quadratic calculator Works:

In algebra, a quadratic equation is a mathematical expression of the form ax^2+ bx + c = 0, where a \ne 0. Such equations can be solved through completing square method simply by transforming them into perfect squares. This can be achieved by introducing a new constant.

**See the following example**,

Assuming h is a constant, we can write x^2+2hx+h^2 =(x+h)^2 is a perfect square. The process of creating perfect squares makes use of algebraic identity, which represents a nicely defined algorithm that can be used to find solution to a quadratic equation.

However, not all quadratics can be reduced into perfect squares. Going back to our initial equation ax^2+ bx + c = 0, where a \ne 0. The function can be manipulated to create a perfect square simply by adding a subtracting the right constant.

Ideally, adding one-half of b/a squared to both sides of the equation "completes the square", thereby converting the Right hand Side into a perfect square. We can deal with the RHS perfectly well since it is a constant.
