    A friend of mine suggests that people don't think that zero is a real solution.

    The roots are the x intercepts. Set y to 0 and you will see that x=0 is a double root which indicates a point of tangency to the x axis at x = 0

    People can think whatever they want. Doesn't make it true.

    \[x^2 = 0 \implies x = 0\]

    \[y=x^2\]\[x^2-y=0\]\[x_{1,2}=\frac{0\pm\sqrt{0^2-4(1)(-y)}}{2(1)}\\=\frac{\pm\sqrt{4y}}{2}\\ =\pm \sqrt y\]

    Nice solution, but by "roots", I meant zeroes :-)

    \[0=\pm\sqrt0\]
