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.

What is your question. The problem is rather selfexplanatory.

This is my first time doing a problem like this and need some guidence. I have 5 more problems like this one and would like some help so I know how to do the rest. Thanks!

The page will give you a good headstart.
