Using The Discriminant To Determine Solutions

This math video tutorial gives a step by step explanation to a math problem on "Using The Discriminant To Determine Solutions".

Discriminant

In algebra, the discriminant of a polynomial with real or complex coefficients is a certain expression in the coefficients of the polynomial which is equal to zero if and only if the polynomial has a multiple root in the complex numbers.

Equations

An equation is a mathematical statement, in symbols, that two things are the same (or equivalent). Equations are written with an equal sign. Equations are often used to state the equality of two expressions containing one or more variables.

In mathematics, a quadratic equation is a polynomial equation of the second degree. The general form is

ax2 + bx + c = 0

where a ≠ 0. (For a = 0, the equation becomes a linear equation.)

The letters a, b, and c are called coefficients: the quadratic coefficient a is the coefficient of x2, the linear coefficient b is the coefficient of x, and c is the constant coefficient, also called the free term or constant term.
