# Check Whether the Following is Quadratic Equation Or Not. X^2 - 2x - Sqrtx - 5 = 0 - CBSE Class 10 - Mathematics

#### Question

Check whether the following is quadratic equation or not.

x^2 - 2x - sqrtx - 5 = 0

#### Solution

Here it has been given that,

x^2 - 2x - sqrtx - 5 = 0

Now, as we can see the above equation clearly does not represent a quadratic equation of the form ax2 + bx + c = 0, because x^2 - 2x - sqrtx - 5 = 0 contains an extra term x^(1/2), where 1/2 is not an integer.

Hence, the above equation is not a quadratic equation.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
