The discriminant of a quadratic equation is 35. The roots are:
a) unequal rational numbers
b) unequal irrational numbers
c) equal rational numbers
d) imaginary numbers
Please explain.

I think it's B, unequal irrational numbers. But if the discriminant is 35 then this is not a perfect square.
Do they give you the whole equation such as x^2 + 6x + 5 = 0? 
It is B.
