# Which are the solutions of the quadratic equation? x^{2} = -5x.

**Solution:**

A quadratic equation is an algebraic expression of the second degree in x.

The standard form of a quadratic equation is ax^{2} + bx + c = 0, where a, b are the coefficients, x is the variable, and c is the constant term.

It is given that

x^{2} = -5x

We can write it as

x^{2} + 5x = 0

Taking x as common

x (x + 5) = 0

So we get

x = 0 or

x + 5 = 0

x = - 5

Therefore, the solutions of the quadratic equation are 0 and -5.

## Which are the solutions of the quadratic equation? x^{2}= -5x.

**Summary:**

The solutions of the quadratic equation x^{2} = -5x are 0 and -5.The standard form of a quadratic equation is ax^{2} + bx + c = 0.
