Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1got what's called the "discriminant" \[\Large b^2  4ac\] In the quadratic formula, this expression would be inside a square root sign

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So... this is really what gives the quadratic expression its "flavour" if you will. When something is inside a square root sign, there's a case when it simply will not exist (in reals) What sort of numbers DON'T have square roots?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i have never heard \(b^24ac\) called the "radicand" before on planet earth we usually say "discriminant" although i guess it really is a "radicand" since it sits inside a square root sign

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2pretty convinced the question makes no sense standalone, it refers to the quadratic formula dw:1439052445971:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Nice handwriting ganeshie :/ How on earth did you do that with the draw tool? Also, equal to zero, fahd? 0 is nonnegative and does have a real square root ^^

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Correct! terence there is some extension that allows adding pictures, colors etc to draw tool.. let me pull it up

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1BTW, I know OS is rather slow (sorry guys, just calling it what it is) but it is especially slow on that "new" Microsoft browser, Edge Is that to be expected?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I am on Edge too because upgrading to 10 changed my default browser... it sucks need to switch to chrome...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Btw those extensions are chrome specific, but javascript doesn't bother about browser.. so you don't really need to download chrome just for those extensions..
