# When the following quadratic equation is written in standard form, what is the value of "c" for the equation x^{2} + 4x = 3.

We will use the concept of the general form of quadratic equation in order to find the value of c.

### Answer: x^{2} + 4x - 3 = 0 is in the general form of the given quadratic equation x^{2} + 4x = 3 with c = -3.

Let us see how we will use the concept of the general form of quadratic equation in order to find the value of c.

**Explanation**:

The general form of a quadratic equation is represented by ax^{2} + bx + c.

We have been given the equation in the form of x^{2} + 4x = 3.

In order to convert the equation in the general form, we have to transpose 3 to the left-hand side.

On transposing 3 we will get x^{2} + 4x - 3 = 0 and this quadratic equation is in general form.

Hence, on comparison of x^{2} + 4x - 3 = 0 with ax^{2} + bx + c = 0 we get, a = 1, b = 4, c = -3.
