You can use quadratic equation to solve different kinds of problems such that: area problems, number problems or Pythagorean theorem in right angle triangle.

If you want to find the area of rectangle, you need to recall that the area of rectangle is the product of width and length. If dimensions are expressed in terms of x, then the equation that denotes the area is a quadratic.

If you want to find numbers using quadratics, then a relation links these numbers (two consecutive integers)  and the product of these numbers is given.

If you want to solve the right triangle using quadratics, then you  need to express at least one leg or hypotenuse in terms of x and you need to use Pythagorean theorem.
