Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Can't be 3. the highest exponent is 2, so you there can only be 0, 1, or 2 solutions. The discriminant is b²  4ac.  If b²  4ac = 0, there is 1 solution.  If b²  4ac is positive, there are 2 solutions.  If b²  4ac is negative, there are 0 solutions.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For the equation ax² + bx + c = 0, the discriminant is b²  4ac. For your equation, a = 3, b = 6, and c = 4.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm not sure what the a,b,c equation is. I gave you the numbers above. You just need to plug them into the expression b²4ac to get the discriminant.
