**1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data**

Prove that if F is a finite field then there is a quadratic polynomial in F[x] that is irreducible over F

**2. Relevant equations**

**3. The attempt at a solution**

To Prove:At least 1 Quadratic polynomial:Ax^2 +Bx +C not = P(x)Q(x)

I know that if P(x) is a polynomial of degree n over any field F, then P(x) = 0 has at most n distinct solutions.

Therefore a quadratic polynomial will have at least 2 zeros in any F.

But I don't what to do after that...
