# What are the values of a, b, and c in the quadratic equation 0 = x^{2} – 3x – 2?

Quadratic equations are the type of equations that have a degree equal to two and are of the form ax^{2} + bx + c, where a is not equal to zero.

### Answer: a = 1, b = -3 and c = -2, are the values of a, b, and c in the quadratic equation x^{2} – 3x – 2 = 0. This equation has been compared with the standard form of quadratic equation ax^{2} + bx + c = 0.

Let's understand the solution in detail.

**Explanation:**

We use the standard form of quadratic equation ax^{2} + bx + c = 0 to find a, b, and c in the given equation.

Here, a is the coefficient of x^{2}, b is the coefficient of x and c is the constant.

Hence, comparing the equation x2 – 3x – 2=0, with the standard form of quadratic equation, we get a = 1, b = -3 and c = -2.

### Hence, in the quadratic equation x^{2} – 3x – 2=0, a = 1, b = -3 and c = -2. This equation has been compared with the standard form of quadratic equation ax^{2} + bx + c.
