CBSE Class 10 Maths Term 2 Exam 2022 will be held on 5th May, 2022 (Thursday). Students can easily score more than 90% in the Maths paper with effective revision before the exam. Here, we have brought you the very useful tips and formulas to revise the Unit I - Algebra of CBSE Class 10 Maths. Algebra has the highest weightage of 10 marks in total for the term 2 exam. Hence, it is wise to focus on thorough preparation and effective revision of algebraic topics. There are two chapters in this unit - Quadratic Equations and Arithmetic Progressions. It will be very easy to revise these chapters with the help of formulas, important questions and tips provided below in this article.

**1. QUADRATIC EQUATIONS **

__Formulas to revise__

For ax^{2} + bx + c = 0,

(α, β) = [–b ± √(b^{2} – 4ac)]/2ac, where α and β are the roots of the equation.

- Sum of roots = –b/a
- Product of roots = c/a
- If roots of a quadratic equation are given, then the quadratic equation can be represented as:

x^{2} – (sum of the roots)x + product of the roots = 0

(i) If b^{2} − 4ac > 0, then the quadratic equation has two **real and unequal/unique roots**.

(ii) If b^{2} − 4ac < 0, then the quadratic equation has two **imaginary roots**.

(iii) If b^{2} − 4ac = 0, then the quadratic equation has two **real and equal roots**.
