# Roots of the quadratic equation: a geometric approach

Good day!
Given the quadratic equation , to find the roots geometrically. Draw the points and , and let the line joining these two points cut the unit circle with centre (0, 1) in points

*A*and*B*. Project*A*and*B*from the point (0, 2) onto the x-axis at the points*A'*and*B'*. Then*A'*and*B'*are the roots of the given quadratic equation. (Karl G. C. von Staudt 1798-1867) Try to explore and you will understand it more.Prove the theorem

Is it true that math is fun?
