\[ax^2+bx+c=0\]consider the discriminant \[\Delta=b^2-4ac\]
the discriminant is part of the quadratic formula \[x=\frac{-b\pm\sqrt{\Delta}}{2a}\]
the quadratic formula takes plus and minus the square root of the discriminant, plus and minus a square root will have one value if the term in the square root is 0, two values if the term in the sqrt is positive, and no real values f the term in the square is negative
