True or False. The equation 4x2 + 16 = 0 is an example of a quadratic equation. Explain.
I think it's false because a quadratic equation needs to be in the form of ax^2 + bx +c = 0... I have a feeling I'm wrong though..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but could C be zero too? ax^2 + 16 + 0 =0 ?
