# How do you write answers in standard form for x^2-3/4x+1/4=0?

Dec 13, 2017

${x}^{2} - \frac{3}{4} x + \frac{1}{4} = 0$ or $4 {x}^{2} - 3 x + 1 = 0$

#### Explanation:

This equation is already in standard form.

The standard form of a quadratic equation is $a {x}^{2} + b x + c = 0$. Therefore you already have a standard form.

However, some exams and textbooks may require you to remove the fractions from the standard form (which I think is what your question wants).

To do this, you can multiply each term by $4$ giving
$4 {x}^{2} - 3 x + 1 = 0$.

However, this simplifying step isn't necessary unless the question states that.

Hope that makes sense!
