    if discriminant is positive it means you have two more more solution 0 if only one sol negative if no solution(imaginary number)

    couldn't the discriminant always be either positive or negative if it is not 0?

    this is for discriminate formula for (I think) multi variable function

    Fxx(a,b)*Fyy(a,b)-Fxy(a,b)^2

    Thank you! You're right, I think. In any case, that formula worked.
