did you miss an x out of the second term?

are you sure there isn't a "x" missing in the middle term ?

you may simply set the discriminant equal to 0 and try to get a relation between a,b,c
MrNood
  • MrNood
but the discriminant contains a,b & c and is only one equation not sure you can derive much from that b^2 = 4ac (but NOTE this refers to the standard quadratic form - NOT the abc in your equation))

i tried that and got \(\large \color{black}{\begin{align} b^2(a^2+c^2)-2abc(a+c-2b)=0 \hspace{.33em}\\~\\ \end{align}}\)

answer given is \( c.)\)

so i have to show \(\large \color{black}{\begin{align} &b^2(a^2+c^2)-2abc(a+c-2b)=0\hspace{.33em}\\~\\ &\Longleftrightarrow\hspace{.33em}\\~\\ &\dfrac{2}{b}=\dfrac{1}{a}+\dfrac{1}{c} \hspace{.33em}\\~\\ \end{align}}\)

hint : if a+b+c=0 in standard \[ax^2+bx+c=0 \\x_1=1 ,x_2=\frac{c}{a}\] in your case sum of coefficient is =0 a(b−c)+b(c−a)+c(a−b)=ab-ac +bc -ab +ac -bc =0 can you go on ?

That is clever!
mathmath333
  • mathmath333
i am confused , how u got \(x_1=1\) and \(x_2=\dfrac{c}{a}\) if \(a+b+c=0\)
MrNood
  • MrNood
I would also dispute that a+b+c=0 implies that ax^2 + bx +c =0
