The term b ^ 2  4 a c
is called the discriminant and gives important information about the number and nature of the solutions to the quadratic equation to be solved.
Three cases are possible:
If D > 0, the equation has 2 real solutions.
If D = 0, the equation has 1 real solution.
If D < 0, the equation has 2 conjugate imaginary solutions.
