ab: The paper presents an alternative geometrical approach to a quadratic
equation using a pair of compasses and a ruler. After an algebraic
analysis of a general quadratic equation, a possible geometrical
solution is outlined. The author is aware that this method is rather
time consuming and not very effective, but it offers another view on
the solution to quadratic equations.
