Hi,
I am trying to solve graphing quadratic equations. One of the problems is written as x^2= 2x1. So if I wanted to put this equation in the proper quadratic equation form, would it be 2x1x^2, or x^2+2x1? I'm really not sure.

The proper form would be x^2 +2x 1. You could also put it as x^2 2x 1. Either way they will both factor the same. Just make sure its in standard form (ax^2 +bx +c)

Thank you.

Either x^2 + 2x + 1 = 0 or
x^2 2x 1 = 0 are in "proper quadratic form".
