What is the roots of quadratic function?

What means by 'Let α and β be the roots of quadratic function ax+bx+c=0'
And talk about the sum of roots and product of roots...I don't even know how α and β pop out,isn't the roots means the solution or means 'x'?
And later it tells that 'The quadratic equation with α and β as roots is x2 - (α+β)x + αβ = 0.'
