## anonymous 4 years ago For the following equation, state the value of the discriminant and the nature of the solutions. 6x^2-9x-8=0 What is the value of the discriminant? 1. The equation has one real solution. 2. The equation has two real solutions. 3. The equation has two imaginary solutions

1. Mertsj

b^2-4ac=81-4(6)(-8)=81+192=273 Discriminate is positive so there are 2 real solutions

2. 2bornot2b

The discriminants are $\pm\sqrt{81-[4\times 6\times(-8)]}$
