First you find the delta: b^2-4ac 5^2-4(2)(-k) 25+8k because it has two real solutions..so, 25+8k>0 8k>-25 k>-25/8

\[\frac{-b \pm \sqrt{b^{2}-4ac}}{2a}\] Yeah, as per @aroub delta (I thought it was discriminant) determines the number of roots you have, as well as their nature... Delta is that expression in the radical in the quadratic formula :D

It is discriminant but i didn't need a quadratic formula.
