    yes, that means when you graph your quadratic function, it does not cross the x axis at all

    √(-36) - √(-40) It's one of the example problems that I can't get right.

    this is just complex numbers. Complex numbers can be added, subtracted, multiplied and divided......not a big deal.....electrical engineers use them....

    another way to do it is by completing the square but the quadratic formula is easier to do it by.
