Can Quadratic equation be in this variant?

ax² + bx +c =0

Example:

1.5x*x+3.2x+5.3=0

Where a,b & c are decimal numbers.

The formula for computing the real roots of the above quadratic equations form remains the same.

Thanks & Regards,

Well, at least you aren't posting this in Physics.

Tip: The usual notation for a square is ^2. For example, your quadratic would be ax^2 + bx + c.

There are no restrictions on a, b, and c. They are usually taken to be integers for educational purposes, but they can be real numbers. (They can even be taken to be complex numbers if you like.)
