The values of a, b, and c of a quadratic equation written in standard form are -2, 8, and 3, repectively. Another quadratic equation has 2, -8, and -3 as the values of a, b, and c, respectively. Do you agree that the two equations have the same formula? Justify your answer



For me, Yes, it's because the value of a in the first equation is -2, but the value of a should be positive so multiplying it by negative 1, it will give you 2. And they will arrive at the same formula.
