Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[2x^2+6x+K=0\] has complex roots when the discriminate is <0 \[\Delta=b^24ac\]\[=6^24\times1\times K\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because in the quadratic formula we have to take the square root of the discriminant , \[x=\frac{b\pm\sqrt\Delta}{2a}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Little correction for the above post... Δ=b^2  4ac = (6)^2  4(2)(K) < 0 Now you need to solve this: (6)^2  4(2)(K) < 0
