Consider the equation:
4x^2 – 16x + 25 = 0
(a) Show how to compute the discriminant, b^2 – 4ac, and then state whether there is one realnumber solution, two different realnumber solutions, or two different imaginarynumber solutions.
(b) Use the quadratic formula to find the exact solutions of the equation. Show work. Simplify the final results as much as possible.
