If the discriminant of a quadratic equal is zero then it will have two equal roots.
There will be 2 real roots
Two equal roots
Two real roots.
A quadratic equation can have a maximum of 2 solutions. If the discriminant (b2-4ac) turns out to be less than 0, the equation will have no real roots. If the Discriminant is equal to 0, it will have equal roots. But, if the discriminant turns out to be more than 0,then the equation will have unequal and real roots.
If it was expressed as a quadratic equation it would have no roots because the discriminant is less than zero
Put the equation into ax²+bx+c=0 form. The discriminant is b²-4ac. If it is negative, there are no real roots. If it is 0, there is one real root. If it is positive, there are 2 real roots. ■
Once and the roots are said to be equal.
If the discriminant is negative, there are 0 interceptsIf the discriminant is zero, there is 1 interceptIf the discriminant is positive, there are 2 intercepts
The discriminant tells you how many solutions there are to an equation The discriminant is b2-4ac For example, two solutions for a equation would mean the discriminant is positive. If it had 1 solution would mean the discriminant is zero If it had no solutions would mean that the discriminant is negative
A quadratic equation has one discriminant.
