Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0in this case a=1,b=k,c=k+1 so for \[\Delta = k ^{2}4\left( k +1 \right) =k ^{2}4k 4\] now use quadratic formula on this to find k.\[\div 2k=\left( 4\pm \sqrt{164\times 4} \right)\div2=\left( 4\pm \sqrt{32} \right)\div2=\left( 4\pm4\sqrt{2} \right)\]\[\div2=2\pm2\]
