    Like: \[\frac{ -3\pm \sqrt{17} }{ 4 }\]

    Graphically, they (real zeroes) cross the x-axis. If the zeroes are complex, they do not touch the x-axis.. Numerically, the roots, x1 and x2, have the property that f(x1)=0 and f(x2)=0, where f(x)=0 is the quadratic equation.

    the roots describe the values of x for which the required quadratic function's value is zero.

    Actually we use the discriminant to determine, \[\huge\ D=b^2-4ac\]

    \[b^2-4ac>0,two \ real \ solutions\]\[b^2-4ac=perfect \ squar e ,Two \ real \ rational \ solutions\]

    If, \[b^2-4ac= no \ perfect \ sq uare,Two \ real \ irrational \ solutions\]
