Are you saying that for some constant ?

I don't think that is correct, a quadratic equation is a polynomial of the form with constant and .

A quadratic equation also contains an '='.

I think we can make up our own rules for this question

Fair enough, although he probably meant quadratic function. I think we can both agree that this post is a trainwreck...
