# What are the values of a, b, and c in the quadratic equation y=5x-4x^2-2?

Jun 23, 2017

Answer: $a = - 4$, $b = 5$, $c = - 2$

#### Explanation:

The standard form of a quadratic equation is:
$y = a {x}^{2} + b x + c$

In this problem, we can rearrange the terms to write:
$y = - 4 {x}^{2} + 5 x - 2$

Therefore, we can see that:
$a = - 4$
$b = 5$
$c = - 2$
