I had a go but i rubbed it off the sheet.
Can someone take me through this step by step on how to solve it
Thanks

t=0: 0 = 0 + 0 + 0 (c will have to be 0 if a and b are)
The equation that I am currently stuck on is a quadratic equation: y = ax^2 + bx + c. I am trying to solve for the values of a, b, and c.
The purpose of this equation is to find the solutions or roots of a quadratic function. It is often used in mathematics and physics to solve problems involving parabolic curves.
To solve a quadratic equation, you can use the quadratic formula: x = (-b ± √(b^2 - 4ac)) / 2a. First, determine the values of a, b, and c in the equation. Then, plug those values into the formula and simplify to find the solutions for x.
If you are stuck on a particular step in solving the equation, try breaking it down into smaller parts and solving them one at a time. You can also ask a friend or teacher for help, or look for online resources or tutorials.
You can check your solution by plugging in the values of a, b, and c into the original equation and seeing if it satisfies the equation. You can also use a graphing calculator to graph the equation and see if the solutions you found are the x-intercepts of the graph.
