Algebra ...Please check this to see if I am corect
posted by MBK on .
For the following equation, state the value of the discriminant and then describe the nature of the solutions.
I came up with the value of the discriminant as 35.
Then I came up with it has two real solutions.
Is this correct?
(-3)^2 - 4*6*2
9 - 48
so no real solutions
The only problem is with the way you wrote it out is that according to my choices for the solutions is:
The equation has one real solution.
The equation has two imaginary solutions.
The equation has two real solutions.
It doesn't give me the option for no real solutions :(
Damon said there are no REAL solutions...that would leave your option of the imaginary solutions...
