Hello,
This calculator does not have a program to which you give the equation, and which returns the solutions. Sorry. You have to use the formulas you learned.
Let the equation be ax^2 +bx+c=0
You compute the discriminant Call it disc.
disc= (b^2-4*a*c)
1. If discriminant is larger than zero you have two solutions. Let us call them x1 and x2.
Then x1=(-b+square root of disc)/(2*a)
and x2= (-b-square root of disc)/(2*a)

2. If disc=0 , square root of disc =0 and x1=x2=-b/(2*a)
3. If disc is negative, there are no real solutions.

To find the solutions you replace a, b, and c by their numerical values, to calculate disc, its square root, and calculate X1 and X2.

Hope it helps.

### How do I solve quadratics on my 531x Sharp calculator?

There is some confusion here.
In stat mode [Quad] the calculator tries to fit a quadratic function to your (already entered) data. It gives you the coefficients a, b, and c of the 2nd degree polynomial that best describes the data.
To solve an equation you need to use the solver not statistics.

### I am trying to solve a quadratic function using the calculator but i dont seem to be able to do so. For example if i had a question like 5x^2 + 15x +3, how would i use the sharp el-w535 to find the x...

This expression 5x^2+15x+3 is not an equation, therefore it can have any value depending on the value of x. You have to make it an equation before looking for the particular value of x that satisfy your equation 5x^2+15x+3 =0

This calculator cannot solve equations because it does not have an equation solver.
